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.
And PLEASE, write in complete sentences so I know you have at least some education, half a brain and are willing to take the time to communicate.
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 are polyamorous.
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 subsistence living.
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 causes.
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.
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 time.
If I message you, please choose civility and respond. A simple yes or no would do. Thanks!
