    I do wildlife rehab, and though I have a lot of friends of the female persuasion, I am single. And you know? I really like it! I've got a gimp crow named Vollund who's been with me quite a while now. I'm starting up a flock of chickens this spring as a side project and I'm really enjoying life! If Ms.Compatable comes along that'd be great, but you know, I'm not in a hurry! [​IMG]

    That would be me minus the crow 52 years ago, and then she came along. [​IMG] I, too, am fine alone, but am far better with her around.

    Being happy with yourself is a good thing.
    Be wary of people who need to be with someone.
    Because they will always 'need'. That's not comfortable.

    The right one will bring you a wounded something or other.
    When you make each other laugh, that's a good sign.

    Welcome to BYC an chicken stuff.

    That sounds like a great place to be!

    It's not always easy to be comfortable enough with yourself to be happy and single, but it can be a really good place to be. It definitely allows you to explore the world and different interests without anything holding you back! I don't have a gimp crow (though I'm pretty jealous!) but I do have a dog and she keeps me pretty sane most of the time. Anytime I feel lonely I give her a big hug or take her out for a hike! Animal therapy is the best kind there is!

    What other animals have you rehabilitated? Do you work mostly with birds?
