My self-summary
I see things from a different perspective than most. Eccentric, independent, free-spirited, strong-willed, courageous, determined, tough-minded, and outspoken, I think for myself, do my own thing, and try to live as self-sufficiently as possible. I also have a quirky sense of humor and a fearless sense of adventure. I’m intelligent and have a good balance of book learning and common sense. I question everything, and sometimes think and do things in a backwards but logically justifiable way. I am crazy, not the kind of crazy that will flip out and go off on you, but the kind of crazy that involves living life with fearlessness, humor, and enthusiasm and throwing social conventions out the window. I consider myself a hard-core socially deviant nonconformist and an intellectual rebel against the norms and expectations of society and have no moral objections to breaking social taboos when I have a good reason to do so. I'm a lot rougher, wilder, and more rugged than I look. It's called dissonance and it messes with people's minds.

I live as a hermit in my Mountain Holler in the wilderness with my hunting dogs, a cat, and a small flock of chickens. I’m very much an outdoors person, I don’t have or want kids, and my dogs and cat are my family. The Holler is its own world with its own culture and its own values and norms that set it apart from the outside world. It’s a beautiful place and for me it’s home.

I consider myself a hippie-redneck-nerd. I like hippie stuff like medicinal herbs, wine, organic gardening, foraging for edible wild plants and mushrooms, and making tie-dyes with natural dyes. I like redneck stuff like hound dogs, coon hunting, 2nd amendment rights, and 4x4 trucks. I like nerdy stuff like science (I have a degree in Horticulture and can tell you the Latin names of most of the plants in the woods), history, philosophy, mythology, Gnosticism, books, and using big words and talking over people’s heads.

Music is very much a passion. I listen to a pretty eclectic variety of music, mostly progressive rock, alternative rock, classic rock & roll, southern rock, and country. I’ve almost always got some kind of music playing in the Holler. I also like to sing karaoke and can express things through music that I can’t express otherwise.

I am a very spiritual person, but I’m not into organized religion. I consider myself Gnostic Christian, and I’m pretty open-minded about religion and willing to agree to disagree, so as long as you’re not a fundamentalist of any kind, we should get along fine.

I’m very much a tomboy, but I have my feminine side too. I’m 100% heterosexual, good at cooking, home canning and sewing. I like wearing dresses and hate wearing pants. No, it’s not a religious thing. Pants are just horribly uncomfortable and I don’t like wearing them. Don’t worry, I can still climb mountains, hit my target, skin and gut wild animals, build stuff with power tools, and work on my truck… in a dress.

I’m not looking to rush into any kind of romantic relationship, but I would like to explore my options, and hopefully find someone with long-term potential. I would like to start as just friends, but I might consider becoming more than just friends once a genuine friendship is firmly established, and if I’m not interested in anything more than friendship I’ll be upfront about it. I’m not looking for someone to spoil or take care of me, but a real partnership where we both contribute in different but equally important ways. I’m not in a hurry to find someone, and I have no intentions of jumping into a relationship or jumping into bed with anyone. I’m not exactly asexual, but I am extremely selective, so I’m not looking for random hook-ups, meaningless sex, or anything of that nature. When it comes to potential dates, I know what I want and need in a man, loyal and genuine friendship is my first priority in a relationship, and I very much prefer quality over quantity.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm doing the best I can with what life has handed me, both the good and the bad.
I’m really good at
Being the local crazy dog lady.
The first things people usually notice about me
I like to wear dresses. I've had people mistake me for Amish, Pentecostal, a Sunday school teacher, a kindergarten teacher, and who knows what else. I'm none of those things. I just like to be comfortable. And it's called dissonance and it messes with people's minds.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music: Oingo Boingo, Green Day, Bruce Springsteen, Morrissey, Pink Floyd, John Mellencamp, the Eagles, Blue Oyster Cult, Bon Jovi, the Refreshments, Steve Earle, Rush, Styx, Gretchen Wilson, the Who, Bad Company, Charlie Daniels, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Johnny Cash, Travis Tritt, Bob Seger, Barenaked Ladies, Roger Clyne, Willie Nelson, Shania Twain, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Sara Evans, Garth Brooks, the Talking Heads, David Bowie, and many others.

Movies: Forbidden Zone, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Edward Scissorhands, Big Fish, Spaceballs, Robin Hood Men in Tights, Tommy, etc. I like weird.

Books: The Other Bible, Wuthering Heights, 1984, The Jesus Factory, The Encyclopedia of Country Living, Prescriptions for Herbal Healing, etc.

Food: I'm pretty much a backwoods gourmet home cook. I'll go out to eat sometimes, but I mostly cook my own food from scratch. I'm far from perfect, but I try to eat as healthy as I can afford to. I like to incorporate wild and homegrown vegetables, wild mushrooms, and wild meat into my cooking whenever possible. Almost all my cookware is cast iron.
The six things I could never do without
Other than the obvious necessities like air, water, food, clothing, and shelter.....

Music - It's a passion.

Fire - Other than its obvious usefulness to human civilization, fire is special to me on a spiritual level. Plus, I love to cook in cast iron over a fire in fire pit in the yard.

4x4 pickup truck - I need transportation, and a pickup truck with 4-wheel drive is a necessity for my lifestyle and my work.

Nature - I like my mountain holler in the wilderness, and though I don't mind visiting the city occasionally, I start to get really homesick if I have to spend too much time in civilization.

Freedom - I don't like being told what to do or how to live.

Animals - I'm a hermit, so my cat and my dogs are the best full-time companions I could ask for.

Now, here are six things that I don't really WANT to go without, but COULD if I needed to....

Electricity - Never had to go without it, but I imagine I could if I had to. I have a fire pit I can cook over, and a CD player that will run on batteries if necessary.

Running water - The well pump is electric, so if I'm without electricity, I'm also without running water. There's water in the creek, and it's clean enough to wash stuff with, and I could boil it over the fire before drinking it.

Refrigeration - I've gone without a refrigerator for about a year before, just to prove to myself that I could. I'd have to eat less meat in the summer, and eat cheese and fresh vegetables within a few days, but it's doable.

Internet - I'm currently without internet service at home, don't have internet on my StupidPhone, and don't own a laptop, so if it takes me a while to respond, don't take it personally. I just have to check messages when I get a chance.

Sex - I've gone almost 2 years without it before. It's not that I don't enjoy it, but it's one of those things that's out of sight out of mind. I'd rather have quality than quantity, so if really good sex isn't available, I'd rather go without than have mediocre sex.

A romantic relationship - Do I *want* a romantic relationship? Yes. But I've spent more of my life single than in relationships, and I would rather be alone than with the wrong person. Again, it's a matter of quality over quantity.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Whatever interests me at the moment.
On a typical Friday night I am
That varies from week to week. I might go sing karaoke at the local bar, run my dogs in the woods, or just stay home and relax.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Read through my match questions and you will find the answer......
You should message me if
-- You’ve actually read all of what I have to say on my profile. Skimming over it and looking at the pictures doesn’t count. In my opinion, it’s a matter of respect to read what I have to say.

-- You have a significantly higher than average IQ. You’re interested in and able to discuss intellectual things like science and philosophy but still have common sense when it comes to country life.

-- You have the heart of a true warrior and the spirit of a true rebel. You’re dangerous in a good way. You have the courage and integrity to fight the system for the good of yourself and others, even if it means risking your own life, liberty, security, and happiness.

-- You have an off-beat sense of humor and can laugh in the face of adversity. You’re also up for some pretty crazy adventures.

-- You have what it takes to survive and enjoy life in the wilderness. You’re not afraid to go out into the woods at night. You don’t spoil yourself with a lot of luxuries. You’re not materialistic and realize that you don’t need a huge stockpile of so-called “survival” gear and have the skills to make it with just a few simple, basic items.

-- You’re open-minded when it comes to religion, spirituality, and the Occult. It doesn’t matter what your spiritual path is, as long as your personal spirituality is important to you and you’re not a fundamentalist of any kind.

-- You’re NOT the jealous and possessive type. You can appreciate a strong, independent, and free-spirited woman for who she is, you’re not in a big hurry to make any kind of commitment, and being a good loyal friend is your first priority in a relationship.

-- You like dogs. You don’t have to be a dog person to the same extent that I am, but you do need to like having them around. Also, you need to respect my cat and my chickens.

-- You’re 420-friendly. Whether or not you partake is optional, but I’m very pro-legalization, so we need to be on the same page as far as our civil liberties are concerned.

-- You’re thin enough to look down and see your own dick. Sorry, but I personally don’t find big, burly, heavyset guys physically attractive. I’m not much of a cuddler, I don’t need a teddy bear, and big guys just make me feel smothered. Other physical features I find attractive, like long hair, dark complexion, tattoos, etc, are all certainly a big plus, but the “rule of dick” (similar to the “rule of thumb” only more specific) is the only real must-have as far as physical appearance goes.

-- You’re older than me. I’m not interested in dating younger guys, and I’m very rarely interested in guys my own age. I’m not going to set a specific age range, but different generations have a different mindset, and I don’t relate to the modern, addicted-to-SmartPhones, Generation Y Millennial mentality very well.

-- You’re local (within about 25 miles or so) or at least semi-local (within about 50 miles or so) or plan on relocating soon. I’m not looking for a long-distance relationship, and I love my Mountain Holler too much to relocate.

-- You love music. The music in your collection ranges from mainstream to obscure, and you enjoy sharing your music with friends and discovering artists that you haven’t heard of before. Bonus points if you can name more than 4 Oingo Boingo songs.

-- You hate TV as much as I do. Or at least you’re not addicted to it and don’t watch much. I’ll make an exception every once and a while for a 2-hour movie, but in general, TV starts to grate on my nerves after about 30 minutes or so. I won’t have one in my home, at least not in the main living area.

-- You like to hunt. You’ve got a good coon dog and don’t mind if me and my dogs come along with you on your hunts from time to time.

-- You wouldn’t mind coming over every once in a while and helping me with tasks I don’t have the physical strength or skill to do on my own in exchange for a good old-fashioned home-cooked-in-cast-iron meal. You’re not afraid to eat things like raccoon meat and wild mushrooms. Everyone seems to really like my cooking, and it’s more fun if I can cook for someone other than just myself.

-- You make really good homemade wine.

-- You like medicinal herbs (take a wild guess at which one is my favorite).

-- You’re an artist, musician, writer, or some other creative type. It doesn’t matter whether it’s a profession or a hobby, as long as it’s a passion.

-- You’re Native American and traditional. I may not be one of your people, but I have friends who are and I am 100% on your people’s side.

-- You’re self-employed or work for a small business as an artisan, craftsman, or tradesman of some kind. Also, I’m independent enough to be happy with a truck driver or someone who travels for whatever work he does. Let me make it very clear that I may be cash-poor but I’m not a gold-digger and I don’t care how much money you make or don’t make. I care that you value your freedom too much to be a loyal slave to a big corporation.

-- You’d consider having an open relationship. I can adapt to and be 100% faithful in a monogamous relationship if necessary, but I prefer to be open. If I’m in an open relationship, it’s actually very rare for me to even want to have sex with anyone else, so for me it’s not about sex, it’s about freedom. If I actually do anything with anyone else you can trust me to be completely honest about it, and if you do anything with anyone else, I expect the same honesty in return.

-- You're just as eccentric as I am.

-- We have a fairly high match percentage. I realize that the matching system isn’t foolproof, but it does have some validity, so if we’re only a 20% match or something like that, it’s probably not going to work. Plus, I didn’t answer all those questions for nothing.

I realize that the odds of meeting someone who meets this description 100% are slim to none, and I don’t expect to. I’m just describing what kind of man I’m looking for and likely to be interested in, albeit idealistically. So realistically, the more this description applies to you, the better your chances are, even if you don’t fit it completely.
