I Want to Live In a Commune

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 60 People

    Since I was a young child I have always been

    different from everyone else, I have never really been able to “fit in” easily as I have never felt that anyone could really truly understand me. I never enjoyed school; I felt that everything I was being taught was useless to me and was not for my benefit but somehow the...

    I Love a House Full of People

    I have always lived with a big family, until I started living alone.  I really miss having people around to talk to, share stories with, laugh with.  I wouldn't mind this at all - I know that we would have to live in a larger house, but it would be...

    I really want to join a commune.

    I have had a documentary on Dancing Rabbit since I was like 8 and I've watched it a million times. I've always been interested in living off the land modestly and getting away from the ignorance of society with like minded people. Has anyone ever been to a commune, or have any...

    I Need a Tribe.

    I have always wanted to live in a commune. I think living amongst a group of people who work together to make food, and talk and have common values can keep the earth alive and make the world more peaceful.

    Looking For A Commune To Be Myself & Excel @ What I Do Best

    I've never though about living on a commune until recently. I have never known anyone to live on a commune so I don't if I fit the profile or criteria. Hence the reason for my post. I'm an athlete, a nerd, a geek all in one. I'd like the freedom to pursue amateur athlete...

    Oh Wait.... I Already Do.

    Yep, you heard it right.  I live in a house with six other people - my husband and two kids, my best friend and his daughter, and my husband's uncle. It gets a little crazy, but I don't mind a bit - unless people are touching my things.

    Yes!!!

    I have wanted to do this for EVER... I have also found others who would love to do this. We would do a lot of art and grow organic food... Everything about this would be great... except that I would need to find only people who HATE sex and physical touch as much as I do... and...

    Almost There

    I grew up in the city but have always felt I was missing something in my life. My family, as I grew up, were devote campers and travelers, and I was in girl scouts well into my upper teens. I have lived in two small towns as an adult but still haven't been able to get the...
