Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Think of me as a lover of nature. I garden, fish, hunt, gather and
as a master naturalist spend as much time outside as I can. Highly
educated, both formally and through a lifetime of reading and
experience, I try to live my life according to what I've learned.
My interests are multifaceted. I practice tai-chi, dance zumba,
hike, bicycle, kayak and spend much time with my hands in the dirt
or trying to ID the latest plant or critter to cross my path.
I am very liberal and socially and politically active. Life has
been incredibly generous to me and I hope to give back at least a
little to make up for what I have gained.
Please do not message me if you are a conservative, into organized
religion, a tea-bagger or think that human influence on climate
change is a vast liberal conspiracy. We will not get along and I
don't want to waste my time or yours. And I'm not interested in a
one-night-stand. Just being honest.
I am a partner in a 35 year long-term relationship with slidingportals
. We are a committed couple, deeply in
love. We share most activities and social values, one of them being
the belief that sometimes there are other persons who can give each
one or even both of us something that we can't give each other. We
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
After spending many years living in various places throughout the
country, we have settled on the Eastern Shore. I am a health
professional and have also shared numerous careers with my lifetime
partner including but not limited to artists, prospectors, writers,
teachers and entrepreneurs in a number of ventures. We still dabble
in some of the above.
We now lead a subsistence lifestyle as much as is possible in the
21st century: hunt, fish, garden, orchard and collect wild plants
and mushrooms. As advocates of permaculture we attempt to grow our
food in an adaptable and sustainable way that improves the
surrounding environment not only for ourselves but the wildlife
that is a part of it. We are locavores promoting the growing and
consumption of local food.We write books and articles on
My latest passions as a naturalist have been promoting native
plants and being an ambassador for reptiles and amphibians:
promoting increased understanding and advocating for their
importance in our environment.
As mentioned above, I volunteer for several social and political

I enjoy working with my hands including art, a variety of crafts
and building projects such as cabins with my partner.
My partner and I have been good at almost everything we ever tried.
We often take on new projects with which we had no previous
experience. I also like to think we have learned from some of our
failures and have never regretted any new ventures.

Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: sci-fi, nature, ecology, politics, mystery. Music: folk,
classical, some new age, latin, local artists. Food: we love to
explore new tastes when we go out. Ethnic foods are favorites. At
home we eat what we grow, pick, catch or shoot.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
More than Six: Each other, The Earth, loving, sex, our fishing
rods, hunting guns, shovels, hoes, Tai Chi, books, our dog and
computer. And dancing in general and Zumba in particular. Many
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Our personal and global environment, politics and how to bring
about change. How to improve our garden, our fishing our hunting.
Where to go on another adventure or hike. Sex and relationships.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Never typical. Sometimes sipping a nice glass of wine, eating a
fine cheese and having a spirited discussion.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you like nature, enjoy outdoors activities, are politically
liberal, don't participate in organized religion and do not smoke
tobacco. If you think we share enough interests to develop a close
relationship even though I have a life partner. Preferably, if you
are interested in a friendship relationship with both of us. If you
do message me, I would appreciate it if you would give me a few
reasons as to why we might be compatible.
At a minimum, I will not date anyone separately that my partner
doesn't also like and respect. In an ideal situation, we'd love to
have long term loving relationships where everyone would be
entirely comfortable and happy with all present at any given
If I message you, please choose civility and respond. A simple yes
or no would do. Thanks!
