OK, I'll have a shot at this.
I'm a newbie here, just a few weeks visiting. Just started posting on some of the threads.
Last year when I hit 45, something snapped in my head and I decided that IT WAS THE YEAR to buy my long dreamed of farm. So I did.
Its not a huge place, 4 acres. But I live here happily with two horses and 2 house cats, and various barn cats (not sure on the exact count it varies when I feed them). I have a pond and some outbuildings and a small orchard. This year I'll be breaking ground on my first organic garden. I plan to start a business.
Likes? Nature, peace and quiet, horses neighing, frogs peeping, loving others like they like to be loved. Family. Faith.
Dislikes? A lot of them, but most I can tolerate in someone else. ;) The only one I can't is meanness - either towards others or animals. It just disgusts me.
Hobbies? Horses, gardening, remodeling. Of which all of this takes up all my free time when I'm not working on my "day" job.
Dreams? I'm living it now. I'm wondering where I'm going...kind of excited about having had the chance to move from the city (finally!) and live in the country. I'm changing as a person now and really seeing where wit is meeting grit.

I'm a 26 year old divorced female(no children). I've been visiting this board since it was part of Countryside Mag, but only became single last year.

I am self-employed, but do alot of local travel for my clients. I have my own place with some acerage and a few horses. I used to raise sheep, beef, and chickens, but downsized my critters after my divorce.

I like the homesteading life, but I also train/compete in the equestrian disciplines of Dressage and Eventing where money and snobbery are very common. I don't fit in with those people, but I do love the sport and want to learn more. Mingling with those types is part of the package. Horses are a serious part of my life and I spend a good portion of my income on the beasts.

I'm not necessarily looking for someone right now - maybe in a few years. I was married nearly right out of high school, and am now enjoying being single.

Hi Folks, I lost my wife last fall. After 34 years of being a couple I realized that I didn't know how to be single anymore.So I stumbled onto this site and have been sifting thru the posts trying to figure it out

I was born and raised in Vermont and left when there got to be more people than cows.Been here in NW Pa. for 20 years. I used to milk cows and have had goats,sheep, pigs along the way. Now all the critters I have is the team of horses that I use in the woods.

It takes me a while to get used to folks so I'll hang around and add more as I get to know everyone here.

I am a 52 year old woman, and one of the few who come here even though they are married. I cannot RESIST a good conversation!!!!!!

I have 2 teenage children, I am an RN, and I am slightly disabled so I no longer work. I have come to really APPRECIATE things like riding lawn mowers and high-quality tools, as it is never summer unless I have a garden! It satisfies something deep inside of me! My garden is smaller but still very much there!

I had, so far, not properly introduced myself because, as a married woman, I thought that I should post only rarely. This spot is rightly tilted towards the needs of the singles in this community, and I felt that singles had more to offer each other.

This changed when I was asked to be an assistant moderator: this is a big and lively board! And, every moderator feels the need to leave the computer some of the time! And so we will cover for each other.

I am looking forward to getting to know the people here more closely!

Hi everybody! I am Carisa. I have been posting on here a little today and have been lurking once in awhile. I post on other forums, but not this one before today. I am 24, single of course. Never married, no kids. Live with my parents and brother. We live on a farm in very rural Indiana where we raise dairy goats, beef cattle (Belted Galloway), turkeys and chickens.

I went to Purdue for 5 years and didn't accomplish much with my useless majors (Anthropology and History) and am now getting a Vet Tech degree via the internet. Something useful finally. Oh, I am also a history and archaeology buff. Love movies and certain TV shows. Also watch way to many UFO shows with my dad. Very addicting. Oh Ghost Hunters too!

Hello everyone. Here's me:

25yo DWF w/ 2 boys - 5 & 7. Been a SAHM for 2 years and homeschool. Finally got us into rural Iowa and slowly accumulating my critters ;) I'm a born-again Christian, spirit-filled.

Interests include reading Christian fiction and homesteading material (love Mother Earth News), knitting, spinning wool, fishing, and baking. There is so much more I want to get better at! : playing guitar, shooting my bow, etc. I enjoy reading all over HT and am seriously interested in living off-grid. Would love to have a self-reliant homestead and, would never go vegetarian, lol.

Any questions, please ask :rolleyes:

I have never posted one of these because I don't have a prayer of finding anyone from here who is located nearby. But I seem to have been filling out a few profiles lately so I might as well put one here. This is my "I" statement.

Female, 43, single, blonde and ditzy when deprived of white sugar and caffiene. My goal is to live in Bug Tussle. Points if you know where that is.

I seem to be really well liked by people who don't know me very well. I spend way too much time alone but that might not be a bad thing. I try to be a minimalist and believe that stuff is just stuff. If I lost everything on a Saturday, I would be alright on Sunday. No matter how much something hurts, it will not last forever and better things are just around the corner. Sometimes I have bad karma but I find something to annoint, purge or sacrifice and the karma goes away.

I like Farmers but have a weakness for dastardly villians and oddly powered superheroes. If you are clairvoyant, that would help. If you tell me that you love me, I will believe you. I am not afraid of bears, but mice and the check engine light in my van can paralyse me with fear. I have 2 dogs, one is blind, one is deaf. Normal is not an option in my house. If I get bored, I talk about my dogs. I talk about them a lot.

I spend a lot of time outdoors and want to eat food that has felt the sun on it. Mulch is my friend. Not looking, just not not looking either. Sometimes the things we trip over, turn out to be some of the best things that have ever happened to us.

EDIT: I have tripped and fallen hard for the Mayor of Bug Tussle.

Gosh, What do I write.... I guess I can always edit!

I am Marie age 31 mother of 3, very recently seperated. Looking for friends nothing serious at this point. I love gardening, working outdoors, homesteading, cooking, canning or other food preservation, history, going to church, arts and crafts, traveling, reading, camping and fishing. I hope to someday find someone that appreciates how much a rare jewel I am and that would be my best friend in life. I hope to someday find someone who wants to be with me and work alongside me in our goals. I am goofy and have a wonderful since of humor. I do not smoke, drink on special occasions, and I am a Christian and that is a big part of who I am. I am looking for someone who is a Christian has the same goals, and morals as I do. Loves children, understands importance of hard work but also takes time for good times too. I'd prefer the person to be from 22-42 in age. Someone that can keep up with me. :)

Hillbillybob passed away August 25, 2009.

He joined Singletree to socialize with others and found his path forward from our group with Naturelover.

He came to Singletree looking for the one he sought to travel his chosen path with and left his touch on many before being taken by surprise onto the path we all must travel. We will all meet again at journey's end.

Hi All
I’m Hillbillybob and that is what my close friends call me.
I’m in love with Naturelover and met her right here on the singletree a year ago so I’m taken and just thought I had better post this here so as to stop any questions about rather I’m looking for a mate.
May God Bless each of you with a mate.

Hey all, I figured since I have been posting for a little while, I should finally get my profile up.

I'm a 33 year old single dad of 2 great kids, boy age 7, girl age 5. I have primary custody of the kids, and they are my number 1 priority in my life and I love them dearly. They take up most of my time and energy, but I wouldn't have it any other way.

I live on and operate the family farm here in Iowa. When I grew up it was a dairy farm. Then Dad decided that he had worked his tail off long enough and he sold the cows and just grain farmed. (corn and soybeans) He got bored with that and we raised (alot of) sheep. Then when I got out of school he sold them and went back to grain farming. I went to college and worked a variety of jobs, all of them having something to do with agriculture to some degree. I followed my dream and moved back home and took over the farm. Now I raise corn, soybeans and hogs. My son also has 15 pullets that are just starting to lay, he has dreams of getting rich selling eggs in case his baseball career doesn't pan out. I must confess I have grown into a bit of a "poultryaholic" through this whole process myself. My daughter dreams of horses and goats.

About me, I'm 6'1 and about 190. I'm a jeans and T-shirt kind of guy. I like old Harley Davidson motorcycles, John Deere tractors and Ford pick up trucks. I'm a Christian, and the kids and I make it to church most Sundays. I coach my son's baseball team, and help out with my daughter's T-ball team. I enjoy volunteering to help out with other youth programs through the local Rec Dept. and with Cub Scouts. I'm a big baseball fan and like to take the kids to the local minor league games. I'm far from the party animal that I used to be, but I still enjoy having a few beers now and then. I can be a shop rat in the winter, fixing, restoring and modifying old bikes. A friend of mine and I had a very cool motorcycle business running on the side, but it has been put on the back burner do to the time restraints involved with being a single dad. I hope to move that project back to the front burner in the future. I'm very grounded and stable, I know exactly where I'm going and what I want in life. I'm very outgoing, friendly and talkative. I'm extremely loyal and honest. I love to laugh, especially at myself. I wear my heart on my sleeve. But I can also be very set in my ways. I would love to get back to a more self sufficient life style, but I have only so many hours in day. (and energy to do it) Although after taking a year off, we WILL have a garden again next year.

I'm not sure what I'm looking for, I really don't have alot of spare time to invest in a relationship, but I really feel there is something missing in my life. I'm not looking for something very serious at this point, but I wouldn't run away from "Miss Right" either. I'm just looking for some one to corespond with and be buddies, and if it developes into something more, great. I don't "need" a woman to help me run things, but some adult company would be nice at times.
Any match for me would have to have a positive outlook on life, and a good sense of humor. She would have to be a Christian, I've been in mixed religion relationships before, and really don't care to go down that road again. I would want someone outgoing and fun loving. I want someone who can go out and have a good time, and also someone I can bring to my parents place for Sunday dinner. If you have kids, your kids are OK with me, as long as mine are OK with you. As far as me having more kids, with the way my life is right now, I can't imagine any more, but I love kids and in the right situation I might be willing to "expand".

That went on a little longer than I had expected, but I feel there is plenty more to share. If you want to know more, please feel free to PM or email me at [email protected] . If you don't hear anything from me, please try again or post for me here, sometimes I don't get along all that well with computers.

This is us.

Not the best pic, but it's tough to look cool at 70 mph, and no, that's not a tree growing out of my head.

Hi y'all!

I have an intro in Countryside Families, but am just starting to post over here on Singletree, so thought I'd do one just for here. I'm in Oklahoma now, but used to live in Colorado, and I miss it every day! Would love to live somewhere more northwest again. At the moment, I'm a city girl, but dreaming of and planning on being a homesteader and hoping to learn lots from these boards. I had a serious illness and didn't work for over a year and lost my job, my house, my car...and my sanity, lol! But I'm doing better and have been working again for a while now (actually worked some overtime this week, woo hoo!), and I never want to be in that position again. It's going to take a while because of all the medical bills, but I want to learn everything I can so that when I can afford it I can buy my own land and be as self-sufficient as possible.

I work in the medical field and work from my home on the computer, and when I'm not working I spend a lot of time playing or reading on here, so sometimes I feel like I'm glued to this thing, but for a long time wasn't able to do much physically. I'm just to the point now that I'm ready to start getting out and doing things again, looking forward to getting some physical activity for one (I've gotten "fluffy" while out of work,lol!) and getting into my volunteer work again. I've really missed that and the good soul-soothing feeling it gives me. I love to cook and do a lot of crafts. I learned to can with my grandma when I was young and would like to re-learn it. I want to raise chickens, goats, rabbits and maybe pigs and beef cattle eventually and have a huge garden and fruit orchard.

I'm 52 (eek! where did the time go?) but everyone always thinks I'm much younger. I got carded clear up until I was 42! I have light brown hair with golden highlights, halfway down my back (I cut it again a year ago for Locks of Love and have been letting it grow again), and if I spend much time in the sun it gets almost blonde. I have hazel eyes that are usually greenish, sometimes brown and sometimes even golden like a cat! I'm very outgoing and upbeat, and people say I'm easy to talk to and a good listener with good advice when asked. I've been single a long time and am not actively looking for anyone other than friends, but if a sweet homesteading fella with a great sense of humor came along I could probably be swept off my feet! :p You women on here are my idols! For years, I didn't think I could do it on my own, but you gals have convinced me otherwise.

I've read a lot already and have posted on the other boards. I feel like I know some of you already, but look forward to getting to know all of you a lot better!

Hi all,

I've been around for a while, but tend to post more in the Equine Board so I thought I'd introduce myself.

Im 22yrs old, blond hair, blue eyes, live with my family on 95 acres in Maryland. We are a close family and love living nearby each other. Im a Christian, never been married, and no kids (but I do love them). Im usually the friend that people call when they need a shoulder or someone to fight for them in their corner.

I love horses, been around them my whole life. I currently own 4. I used to milk our dairy cows but not any more, the horses started taking up too much time. We've had pigs (which are now in the freezer) still have about 80 some chickens and a lot of cats.

I am an avid outdoors woman and go deer hunting every winter. I am in no way a girlie girl, I field dress and process all my own deer (and the rest of the family's too) and usually make my signature venison jerky with it. YUM!

I never went to college, started my own business almost right out of highschool and have been loving it ever since. I homestead full time, last May I went out of town for 3 days and that was the longest I had been away from the farm for over 2 years. Im usually pretty shy so my posts will be random at best :)

Hi everyone, my profile probably doesn't belong here because I'm not single, but I live alone. DH lives several hundred miles away and we see each other a few times a year. I face many of the problems that single people do so I feel a kinship with some of the people on this forum. I post here every now and then so I decided to stop in and let you know that I'm not looking for a mate, I just like to talk to people.

I got bullied into posting on here, so I finally broke down and did. I am not searching for romance right now, but would love to meet some good friends with similiar likes. I tryed to snap some quick pics of myself, so sorry for the improfessionalism...I'll post details on me when I got time. Glad to see you all though! Joel

Okay, I guess I'll put a profile up, ya never know right?
Independent, outgoing, sweet, sexy, sassy, sensual, caring, easygoing, lady looking for someone special.I love to do all the usual stuff, but have a bit of a wild side, but on the right side of the law.
Love to laugh, love to dance, not afraid to show emotion, no head games, no hangups, no baggage. Love to try new things, not scared of a challenge, need spontaneity, love a good wrestling match, great conversations,and anything to do with the water.
Lollipops, banana splits, and strawberries with whipped cream, sunsets,
lazy rainy mornings are a few of my favorite things.
Love old muscle cars, the outdoors, hugs and cuddles, animals,
and the beauty in every new day...

Happy go lucky, laugh easily, a guarded giver, always smiling, intense at times, love quiet times for two, and getting away from the city at every chance I can.
I''ve got a good life, a house, a car,a dog, one precocious sassy 9 yr old daughter still at home, a list of renos that will keep me busy till 2021, run my online business from home, but can certainly make time for someone special. However now leaving the city by late spring, and relocating to acreage in northern BC. I miss my lakes and mountains, and the peacefulness of the north country, it's where my heart calls home.
I still wake up every day with a smile on my face,
after my first cup of coffee of course.
I need a man who is strong, sensitive, sense of humor is a must not an option, athletic,(as in not always a couch potato} someone who still knows how to laugh and have fun, serious when you need to be, and someone with a bit of fire to them. If I have to explain the fire, then you are not the one for me.. If you have no hangups and are ready to try things one day at a time, ready to shoot for the moon, and see what happens, then you just may be what I need..
If you talk the talk that's great, but can you walk the walk?????
I can and do in every aspect of my life. Can you walk with me into building a new life together?

249 Posts name is Danny.

I have a profile here:
Some artwork here:
A couple of posts of interest here:
and an email here: [email protected]


For a short synopsis:
I'm 34, 5'11", 210lbs, blond hair, light blue eyes, divorced w/1 daughter, non-smoker, no tattoos, Christian, currently have a beard, and all of my appendages.

I desperately want to move to the country, buy some animals and find someone to settle down's just taking a heckuva lot longer than I'd like. :(

I live in Roswell, New Mexico but hopefully moving fairly soon to Tennessee, Southwestern VA, or Oregon. There are lots of variables I'm considering and I own my own dental I can move pretty much anywhere people need dentists.

I'm very open, so if you have any away.

Okay, so here goes...39 yo DWF..I have four FANTASTIC kids ages 18 DD, 16 DD, 6 DD, and 4 DS. Right now I live in town but yearn for a place in the country. I drive a school bus and work from home. Life around here is pretty chaotic and busy but seems to be missing something at the same time. I like to garden, quilt, crochet...if it is some kinda crafty thing I have probably tried it at least once LOL I love all kinds of animals (well except birds LOL I can sorta tolerate chickens) I used to have horses and milk goats but had to give them up when we had to move to town. I miss them alot. Really not sure what else to put on here but if there is anything else you would like to know feel free to pm or email me. I also have a blog and a myspace page so feel free to visit both:)

Howdy Yall and a Happy New Year to everyone!
I haven't posted an intro any where here on HT before, so decided to do so.....and hope here is ok since I'm not yet legally divorced, but getting there.
I'm 52, white female, brown eyes, long dark hair, grown kids and some wonderful grand youngen's. So many of you can write such interesting intro's. I'm struggling here, so please bare with me. I'm just country simple. My daughter calls me a hermit. That should sum me up lol. Entered the single recently life after 26 yrs of a lonely married life. Not looking back.
Moved onto my daughters 5 acres in a lil camper fixer upper and looking forward to gardening, chickens, goats (here already) and raising my first pig! (will be watching the forums on here for help with the pig rearing lol) Love all animals, few I've had before others I'd like too. Not too found of reptiles thou, except at a distance.
I love to laugh and look for joys in each day as I go thru it. I count my blessings. I don't mind rolling up my sleeves and digging into the days work, I'm washable. I prefer jeans, but occasionally have been seen in a dress lol. Other than my job to go to, church as I can, I'm content staying at the home place. I'm not much of a tv watcher. I don't mind trying to learn new things.
I can and have lived off the grid, no solar power, except for that wonderful sunshine thru the windows :)
I've been a member here and lurked on the HT forums for a few years, I seldom post. I'm content with my own company, but do miss the part of sharing life that goes along with having that "one" special someone in your life.
Anything else ya like to know just pm me
Don't know what more to say.......simple as that
