Looking for a friend, lover, companion for a homesteading life
I started out in my home area (Ashland, KY) and I am going to slowly branch out as I go in search of what I am looking for.
I didn't expect to find what I'm looking for easily but there is nothing to lose by looking. One day I intend to live a simple farming/gardening life and get away from the fast-paced modern things as much as possible. That means doing more work by hand, being outdoors, active, building relationships, instead of spending time watching tv, playing video games, or texting all day. I want to homeschool my kids, play family games, read books and write hand letters, have meaningful and deep conversations, and go to farmer's markets and flea markets.
I am not religious, though I am usually told I have values that are somewhat traditional, and would want someone who isn't super religious, and preferably someone who doesn't drink or smoke.
Political values are very important to me also, as I have been labeled a libertarian by many, for lack of a better description. My belief is that government should stay out of the private business and property of people. Also, people should take care of themselves and their responsibilities, not expect somebody else to. You don't spend money on things you don't need and can't afford to begin with.
My goal is to take the land I have, start from the ground up, doing everything myself to build a simple life in the woods with a cabin. That means, not having some things until you can afford them, going without, making sacrifice, instead of going into debt and spending yourself broke every week.
Right now I'm working out of the area temporarily, as I took a job that would allow me to save a good bit of money, and get to live outside, in the middle of the wilderness. But I intend to return soon to start this process along with my father.
If anyone's interest is peaked, I'd love to start a real conversation with somebody, truly getting to know one another about the things that are important and meaningful.
