Contact person

Summary

Woman (41 yrs.) is looking for a buddy to chat with or take a walk in the peaceful surroundings of nature.

Detailed description

She suffers from chronic fatigue and therefore finds it difficult to maintain social contacts. A buddy like long-term contact, on which she can build, would therefore be very nice. She loves art, culture, music and plants. She is looking for a buddy who will come and have a chat with her now and then or with whom she can take a walk together. In addition, stimuli related to her fatigue can cost a lot of energy, so meeting at her home and / or walking in a quiet environment is the most pleasant.

- you are open-minded, do not judge quickly

- you are a good listener
