According to my count there are 57 women and 143 men here, which means that if every gurl find a guy there would still be 86 men who would remain single!

Now let's assume that the % of gay men here is roughly equal to the population at large around 10% last time I checked...which means that 10% of 143 is 14.3 gay men...which might bring our figures down for other men down to 71.7...and we still have not factored the amount of lesbian athesits here....5.7...which is likely higher for I will say a modest increase of 15% lesbians here.....I should actually raise the bar on the gay men here too, I would think...but anyway...these are not exact figures.....:)

So that brings us to 48 women seeking men here and about 129 men seeking women....which means that the gap is 81 men are out of luck...and that's of course if everyone here was compatable with each other which of course....would not be the case since we know that the div. rate in this country is 50%! Well that leaves us with only 24 women here who would actually stay in their relationship and that would mean that only 24 men would still have a relationship and the rest .... which isn't saying too much...and....*starts to cry...

But seriously why are there always a majority of men on these atheists sites? I mean are we going to have to fight over each women like in Saudi Abria? Or will there be like for every atheist women three atheist men by her side? Some sort of atheist women's polygamy? ....

I mean this must be great for the women atheists right? You have more too choose from? If one atheist man does not suite your fancy well you can always find a large pool to choose from again....I would suspect that it is even more rational for a women to be an atheist than a man! Unless you are a gay man....?

Which brings me to my point is it rational to be an atheist male if your goal is a relationship with a female? hmm...

Does not believing in something that does not exist really matter considering how it can effect one's dating and relationship life? If so should we settle down with our pet dog and live in isolation for the rest of our lives? And why am I an atheist again? God must of cursed me. Is honesty really that important folks? What social good does it really bring? Maybe I could just brainwash myself into belief again...motivation is sure there...oh but the gods of reason say no!

This of course brings up another valid question: If atheist men outnumber atheist women and women are often the ones teaching the next generation of human babies....and they are all religious...what kind of world is this going to look like: Idiocracy.

And of course there is the elephant in the room: Why would there be more male atheists than female atheists? Is the stereotype all know what it is....women are more prone to feeling and emotion thus they are more prone to religion and are themselves emotional but mostly rational compared to women...hence logic suggests that is why there are so few women atheists.

Does a feminist want to counter the data in some way? I'd hate for that to be the truth.....if it were I suppose marrying my dog would be my next goal....because if that is true, and all women are irrational on some other level atheist women would be just as irrational as other faith based women, therefore I'm not sure what the difference is?

I'd argue that this is largely because men are generally expected to be the 'pursuers', while women are generally expected to be the 'pursued'. I'm not saying that this is always the case, but it's built into our society and hard-wired to our evolutionary psychology. Biologically, it makes a great deal of sense; after-all, during the reproductive process, it is the female who has the most to loose in essentially every heterosexual species on this planet. Thus, men tend to engage in 'active looking' substantially more often than women.
I published a study of personal ads 14 years ago that took an evolutionary psychology approach to understanding the dynamics of seeking mates.

Baize, H.R., & Schroeder, J.E. (1995). Personality and mate selection in personal ads:
Evolutionary preferences in a public mate selection process. Journal of Social Behavior
and Personality, 10, 517-536.

An EP analysis in Social Psychology was fairly radical then. The differential in the number of men looking is found everywhere, not just among atheists.

So guys, quit complaining and just jump back in the race. You need to be a little better than the other guy, and complaining doesn't help.
It could also be because men are generally less worried than women about attracting a stalker-serial-killer in disguise.
So true. There's an old saying; "Men are afraid that women will laugh at them, women are afraid that men will kill them." Sorry, if there's an attributed author for that quote, I don't know who it is.
Hey Stephen, want to go out?

Cool. I'm at Harkins Theater in Flagstaff AZ. "Star Trek" starts in 10 minutes. See you in a few.

While I, between Trek and Wolverine, am having multiple nerd-gasms. Where's my phaser?!?
Stephen Meyers -

Speaking for myself, I admit I'm very leery about asking guys out. One element: Fear of rejection works both ways. Another element: I'm bad at 'reading' people, particularly in person where communication tends to take place less in the frontal lobe and more in the reading-between-the-lines-soap-opera part of the brain. "Am I getting the signals from this guy or is it just wishful thinking?"

And that's on the rare occasion that I run into an atheist-compatible who isn't also gay or spoken for.'ve never heard of threesomes ?
Sure - you can join in on my date with Stephen.

Atheist websites are like Alaska! Oh Bother!
Minus Sarah Palin, so there's a silver lining...
