My name is Lynn, and I'm a 61-years-young widow, interested finding a man to become my life partner, someone between the ages of 40 and 65. I love gardening (for food and beauty), I'm very interested in self-reliant living and all that implies, but I am NOT a hermit or a cave-dweller. I am honest, mature, a bit guarded at first blush, and have expectations (that means I expect monogamy, fidelity and all the other good stuff that comes with life partner/lover relationships.) I’m 5’8” tall, still have 25 lbs. to lose, yes my hair color (currently platinum blonde) is chemically enhanced so as not to scare off the general public, and yes, I have to wear glasses or I’d trip over everything.
I'm currently in southern Michigan, but want to move back to the western United States (anything basically west of Nebraska), so you should be there already or want to move there. As for my current living situation, I do have a house I will be trying to sell in order to have extra $$$ for buying another property out west, however, I'm not tied to staying here in Michigan once it goes on the market. I have an adult, male (neutered) Doberman dog who is a spoiled baby, and you must be willing to welcome both of us into your life or it’s a deal breaker (that just means he’s with me until he passes on naturally to Doggy Heaven), but no other animals at this point. I’m a good cook, and while I lean towards a more plant-based diet, I’m not a snob about it.
I would love the help and support of a talented, ambitious man who is interested in building a permaculture homestead together with me, and can demonstrate that he can be a Jack-of-all-Trades. That sounds optimistic, doesn't it ?! Looks are subjective; if we find each other attractive, no one else's opinion matters (but I’m a sucker for a killer smile.) I have dated two men in the past year, both of whom had OCD, and that just didn’t work out despite what I thought were heroic efforts on my part, so if you have similar tendencies or suspect that you do, it would be better for you to just keep walking thataway >>> Ditto on alcoholism, illegal drug use, porn addiction, raging bigotry or sexism. I can handle cigar or cigarette smoking as long as you're courteous about it in my presence (I am a non-smoker).
To be fair, I have to disclose that I have a health condition that MIGHT impact my quality of life down the road, but it's not contagious (LOL). If you have made it this far and aren't scared off yet, we can discuss it more if we begin communicating.
Hi folks. I have received several very nice responses to my original post. However, after some consideration, I have decided to announce that I have ceased looking. No, I have not found that "beautiful soul in a male body," but I am choosing to pull away from the search for a partner at this time.
Thanks to those who reponded, and good luck in your permaculture ventures.
