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.
