I want someone comfortable with and happy with who they are and not caring what others think. I'm focused on who a person as a whole. I guess ask if you want a pic, I'll email.

I spent my career getting paid to give advice and am struggling somewhat giving it up. I think you should take up vloging, it is not nearly as hard to learn as Japanese, there are many free and paid courses on line to learn. Stop worrying about how you look seem or feel, get behind the camera. Few are doing much of a vlog on Permaculture, probably because editing video is way down the chore list, So learn to vlog, ghost some Permie group, When you have an income then go to Japan. We know there are Permaculturists in Japan but they are not on youtube, you have a subject, content, audience, and we know there are Americans in Japan making a living vlogging. You are already articulate, but you need a subject. There may even be someone out there in Permi-land who would house and feed you in exchange for doing their vlog, at least for a short term.

However, thanks for your thoughtful response. Enjoyed reading it and am sure others will too. :)

Sarah, I think this makes sense and would also be the appeal of messaging someone who was a regular poster vs. some person who made an account for the express purpose of posting in the singles forum. Are you really interested in permaculture? What do you think about the various topics not directly related to it like frugality, feminism, food choices, etc? i.e. Do you want more than a hookup or a sugar mommy/daddy?
