Looking For Love?
Tap into the Permaculture groups in Canberra and you’ll find endless numbers of awesome people well across the ideas discussed here on PP. I started exploring limits to growth, collapse, energy decent etc etc a few years ago and felt really isolated until I stumbled across Permaculture. Don’t write it off as just a hippy gardening methodology as I once did, it is so much much much more. It is an intentional design approach for a permanent culture that considers all of the points raised by Chris and Adam here on PP. You’ll already find a really vibrant and active PP type community in Canberra. (I’m in NE Vic btw)
I will happily host a regular gathering for anyone interested and willing to travel to Boston, MA. I can work out all the details, I just need commitment from people in the area to show up.
I’ll also help anyone else that is interested in becoming the designated point person in other geographies to do the same and figure out ways to effective build our network.
Adam–if you’d like help figuring out how best to communicate and connect people, I’d love to help there too.
Continuing in Lisa’s path, I would be happy to help plan, organize and be a point person for Wash DC/Mid Atlantic area.
I’m always up for a beer in Chicago. Definitely married though.
I like Karen’s idea of community meet-ups or tours of projects. Unfortunately, given the nature of this site, inviting a love forum is too much opportunity for a grifter/psycho to abuse members. What brings many of us here (as you related in ‘Prosper’) is our unease at the coming future. Many members feel anxious and vulnerable at these changes. Sadly, this makes them prime candidates for exploitation in a love fraud abuse. Finding a like minded individual online, suddenly love bombing you, knowing all your insecurities about the future AND your willingness to invest your time, effort and money into something/someone who convinces you that this “partnering” is the security you’ve been looking for?
Having already been defrauded by a con-artist psycho once for hundred thousand which is chump change to the psychological and physical abuse he inflicted on my kids and I, I’ve learned enough of the tactics of predators to see what you are thoughtfully suggesting may easily turn into leading your lambs to the slaughter. Please reconsider.
Hi Lisa, I’m north east of Providence in RI and would certainly be interested in meeting with ‘like minded’ folks in the area, I’m happy to help facilitate this in any way I can. I’d be willing to travel to the Boston area. Let me know what you think…….. I could swear when I registered a while back that there were already ‘regional groups’ or something similar, there was just very little activity around this part of New England if I remember correctly……
was just commenting to Lisa that I thought there were already regional groups, but just not much current activity. Here’s the link if anyone is interested…… hope this new ‘format’ will gain some ground!
ELum, you’re probably all too aware of this by now but for those who aren’t, if you are entering into a new relationship with someone and they start asking for money or some other representation of wealth (in any way, shape, or form), run the other way and never look back. From a male perspective, in my opinion, no male who is worth his salt will ask a woman for money unless he is in a long term, solid, stable relationship with her (and, even then, to me, it may be somewhat suspect). A man of character and substance will go out and earn what is needed and take care of that woman and never abandon her, regardless of life circumstances, as long as she is faithful to him. That may seem old fashioned and chauvinistic to some but I guarantee you if you follow that rule, you’ll steer clear of problem people and relationships. Also, never look to another individual to satisfy all your needs and desires in life. That is placing an unfair and unrealistic burden upon them and they will never be able to fulfill it in its entirety.
Erm… thanks for the life advice but you missed the mark on me. It is not a difficulty for me. My first posts stands. I ask our hosts to exercise caution in creating a love forum given the reasons I listed.
But thank you sincerely for the good intention. Truly.
Hello Greater Boston PP,
The common thread appears to be an interest in having community, in real life. Let’s do that.
Sunday, Sept 22 at 5pm
275 Medford St, Charlestown, MA 02129
We will have dinner and meet on the roof, if weather permits. Bring your own dinner and feel free to bring something to share. There is a deli with sandwiches downstairs and a Whole Foods a few blocks away. Please plan ahead.
I have a few altMBA/Akimbo people already planning to attend, so it will be a combined group of thinkers.
It can get chilly and windy, so dress warm. If it rains we will be in the cafe on street level: Anna’s Cafe.
Enter through the lobby on the side of the building (under the big awning) and tell Nece you are here to see Lisa. She will let you in. Please park on the street or in the community center parking lot across Terminal St (do not park along the perimeter of the building).
Shoot me a message if you plan to attend or have any questions.
