I'm not really a social person. I'm quite awkward as perceived by others who do not know me well.
I prefer my woods, beaches, fields, and hobbit hole, animal friends (CATS), and a few human friends to pop in and visit occasionally. I have two young sons who live with me at home, but I don't let parenthood define me.
I consider myself an artist, which means I'm both resourceful and poor.
Nature and the open air are most important to me, and I prefer to be near bodies of water. Going inland makes me nervous. I did grow up on an island, after all.
I've so many hobbies, there's never a dull moment- always lists of things, adding to the stacks of books - art, gardens, things to be identified, bones to be picked, genealogy to unravel, history to fawn over, swapping to be done, plants to be watered. I spend my days in a childlike wonder, which I think to be a good thing in today's world. I'm surrounded by old things, as I love old things, and colors.
Mostly, I'd like to meet new friends of like minds for friendship, fun, conversation (writing). I'm terribly honest, I tell no lies, but I am open-minded so that it's not a problem unless you're not a match for my likes. I'd love to have a girlfriend, in more ways than one. I'd love to have a dude friend - my best friends were always dudes, usually older. I definitely appreciate maturity. Gimme some truth.
**I feel it is important to note here that I don't like party scenes or meeting in bars. I don't do well in crowds or lots of noise. I also don't drink alcohol (excepting the occasional spit of wine- love the taste but two sips and I'm wacky- is this an allergy?).
I have a nice enough face, and a big body. I am no small thing. I am strong, and suited to working in the garden or woods, I have a strong back and am a very even keel (though I can be terribly clumsy physically). I love to live in the now, to love and thus live. Nothing bad, no baggage, I just want easy going times and peace in nature.
Of the Enneagram 9 types, I am a type 5. And it fits me all too well!
