My description:

I seek a smart, childless, Vegan woman for Skype video-conversation and, hopefully, eventually, to meet in person. Me? After 22 years of teaching lots of Spanish and a little French, I'm an Ohio Supreme Court-certified Spanish-interpreter and interpreter-trainer. I walked well over 5,000 miles just to the university and back during my last fourteen years of teaching here in NW Ohio. I use no airconditioning, clothes-dryer, gas mower, cell-phone, microwave or garbage disposal. I've composted for 25 years now here at my humble hermit's hovel and animal-sanctuary. Consuming little, I thrive on a simple, peaceful lifestyle, complete with Veganism, gardening, lots of international/multilingual news, sky-watching, bread-baking and beer-brewing. (I've been a news-junkie since the 80s, when my years in military intelligence left me addicted to knowing something about what the Hell's going on. Survived 307 parachute-jumps on three continents back in those eye-opening, radicalizing days, including high-altitude, sport freefall-jumps and low-altitude, military static-line jumps.) Also enjoy maintaining an old foreign car and motorcycle, feeding and watering yard-birds daily, spoiling my rescued dogs and cats, and spending quality time with a very small number of friends. I'm healthy as a Shetland pony. Recently hiked eight miles in exactly two hours with my best friend from college-days. At 5'8", I weigh exactly what I did when I graduated from university in 1979, 134 pounds. Blood pressure: 105/65. No meds other than some aspirin every day. If you know the Briggs-Meyers scale, I'm a rare INFJ (more introverted than extroverted; more intuitive than sensing; (slightly) more feeling than thinking; more judging than perceiving). I adore this stunningly beautiful planet and every non-human animal species that humans have not yet driven to extinction. As a misanthropic antinatalist, however, I consider our own miserably-failed monkey-species to be a terminally self-obsessed, Earth-killing, animal-torturing, soul-selling, luxury- and comfort-addicted all-around disaster. I suppose I'm a Pagan, because it's the animals, Earth, Water, Air, and forests that I really worship. To be brutally honest, I don't have much respect for the "mainstream" religions - I've studied too much history and am too keen a watcher of current events! It would be an uphill struggle to try to have a balanced, respectful relationship with a woman who considers herself a "Christian" (of any type except possibly Gnostic), Jew, or Muslim, just as it would be hard for me to have a serious, long-term relationship with a woman who actually believes in the Tooth Fairy, Santa Claus or even (my favorite!) the Easter Bunny. My free time? I spend most of it keeping a very small (933 square-foot), tidy, smart-little-pig's house of bunker-worthy cinder-block and a very nice, large yard, taking care of rescued pets, feeding and watering wild birds, squirrels, rabbits et al daily, staying fit through walking, stretching, basic gymnastics and some yoga, following international news, watching television and films, reading, living simply, growing organic food, composting, doing yard, garage and house projects, and trying to put my money where my mouth, values, politics and heart are. Favorite music: Kim Robertson, Aine Minogue, Orla Fallon (and other Celtic harpists), Albannach, Gordon Lightfoot, Don McLean, Nancy Griffith, Mark Knopfler and Dire Straits, Highway 101, Alison Krauss, Iris DeMenth, Beach Boys, Ricky Nelson, ABBA, Loreena McKennitt, Enya, Julieta Venegas, La Oreja de Van Gogh, Miranda, Mecano, Gypsy Kings, Julio Iglesias, Yves Duteil, Nana Mouskouri, Eagles, Pink Floyd, Tangerine Dream, Moody Blues, Fleetwood Mac, America, Al Stewart, 60s and 70s tunes in general, Christy Moore, Dougie McLean, (Scottish socialist) Dick Gaughin, Old Blind Dogs, Alton, Dervish, Seven Nations, and De Dannon (Ireland). For example! Among my most vital interests is leading a life humble and simple enough to leave money left over each month to give away to animal-rescue/rights, environmental, international human birth-control, and Green political organizations. I also like to walk the dogs at our county's new Humane Society. Finally, I also like to write. The single most important accomplishment in my life has been an internationally-published, scholarly work on medieval French literature, history of the Crusades, the Knights Templar, and the Cathar religious heresy. It's now in its third printing, in three countries, in my third language (French). The bloody Catholic Church would have tortured and toasted me like a heretical Norse-Celtic marshmallow for my book, a fact that fills me with subversive, seditious glee. I want to write another radical book in Spanish I've planned for years, but it will have to wait until if and when I retire, methinks.

Seeking:

I quest for a deep, enlightened woman of purposeful integrity, a potential mate with: a strictly Vegan life of low-consumption (this excludes "shopping as a way of life"!) and attractive fitness; a quiet, balanced, fun, productive, organized, child-free lifestyle; a bright, reasonable, well-informed intellect... a foreign language or two would also be nice! I'd like to meet a smart, progressive, unusual, emotionally stable, reliable, childless woman of depth with time and space in her life for another close friendship and possibly even a love relationship. Hey: I prefer not to share a table with flesh-eating zombies and sneakily avoid doing so, taking pains to be discreet and non-confrontational about preferring a cruelty- and violence-free dining environment! Also, it embarrasses me to be out in public with loud, provocative people who seem to demand the attention of every stranger within a fifty-foot radius; as an always security-aware, dyed-in-the-wool introvert who is a slightly agoraphobic empath, I like a low, quiet public profile, myself.  Of course, my simple, low-consumption lifestyle would be intolerable to most mainstream female American "consumers," but I know there must be a few out there who share my desire to live humbly, responsibly and lovingly on this poor, poisoned planet. Finally, I am not looking for a pen-pal. I'm looking for someone I can get to know face-to-face, via Skype-calls, and hopefully, eventually, to meet in person.
