    The Ultimate Dream

    You know those people who talk about being stranded on a deserted island like it is a bad thing? Well I'm not one of them. In my books, being stranded on an island could quite possibly be the best thing to ever happen. I think about things like how I would build myself a hut...

    It's the same old thing: People come,

    people go; they come in and make an incredible impression and then they just leave. Society wants you to accept its laws, values, morals and beliefs, but wants you to give up your individualism in the process. Society has the most demonic influence, wrapped in angelic...

    I want to leave this modern,

    organized, chaotic society and go to a secluded area and learn to live off the land. I'm quiet, bit of a loner and don't quite fully fit in where ever I go. I'm a good salesperson. Fake it until you make it but that's exhausting. I just want a simple life and no unnecessary...

    Some days I just have a strong urge to just

    pack a few bags and just leave. Bring a tent and a couple of belongings and simply live freely:) that's my hope for the future to one day live at one with nature and everything around me.

    I want to leave society.

    .. Live in the woods and not care about anything at all, I don't want to spend the rest of my life surrounded by ignorant people I'll lose my mind, I love nature and hate the city. I'd rather hear rivers flowing than cars passing and honking. It's much more pleasing seeing...

    I am 34 years old and ever

    since I can remember I've felt out of place in mainstream society. All I ever wanted to do was travel and see as much as possible. I got married at a young age and have lived my life for her ever since. But I have always heard the call of the wild in my heart. Now we are at a...

    I want to leave and live in the wild

    as well. Tired of the **** that goes on in society. Why should anyone have to pay to survive? I can go to the forest and get food, and shelter from it, so why should I pay someone else for it? I want to leave but leaving completely alone would get boring, having no one to talk...

    This is a serious thought,

    ponder for hours, what would it be like to let go of everything. letting go, letting go of everything sounds like a dream. I am new on this app and also new to the thought. I wouldn't even want a mini van, no type of car just a tent, something to keep my tent from getting wet...

    Let's Make Our Own

    Either we leave society or we create our own. I have chosen to created my own. The mainstream society appeals only to the people who have no right, no mercy, no respect for themselves and others. If we are thinking about the same society? The very human society...

    It's a nagging feeling

    that is getting stronger and stronger. I get up every single day to go to a job that I hate so I can afford to have all the things that society dictates that I should have to be a "functional member of society" aka a Robot. I don't want to be stationary anymore; stuck in a place...

    I have felt alienated from my peers

    since freshmen year of high school. I have very little in common with them and nothing that I could form a friendship over. I have dreamed of living in a sparsely populated world where I can live without interacting with other people.

    I am here to tell you about me,

    my vision and my reality. I'm looking for three women and two men to join me in leaving society. Leaving it all behind and building a community of our own. No computers, no phones, no homes. Lost in the wilderness so to speak. I'm tired of it all. I want to try another way...
