Ok, so due to my inability to lower my standards, I have unwittingly dedicated myself to becoming an atheist nun....(kidding, but that's the way it's turning out). So I live in the buckle of the bible belt, I'm educated, attractive for my age, own my own business, and mindless sex is just so easy (and boring) for us....isn't it ladies??? (You guys know that's true) But finding someone you actually WANT to be with, now that is where things get good and complicated!! I've decided in my wisdom, that I will not settle. Since MOST atheists live far far away from me, it never really occurred to me to try and find a man that could keep up with me intellectually on this site, but what did occur to me, was that I would meet awesome people who are intelligent, well spoken, educated, (whether self taught or schooled), witty and socially aware. I have hit the mother load there!!! This site helps me hold on to the fact that there are growing numbers of people just like me out there and I am not alone!! Rational, kind, and well spoken non-believers! I LOVE yall people....!!! (no but really, I do! That's a facetious southern accent btw and yeah, I am a southern girl and lovin there are so many talking atheists on this site!!!)
Now that being said....it can be a lonely life. But I just can't, and won't settle. You feel me?

I've been an atheist monk for years now. Back in 2003, someone I met online, in an atheist chatroom, invited me to spend a week with her -- I live in Florida, she was in Illinois. We did have fun that week but for a variety of reasons it didn't lead to anything lasting. Probably it didn't help that she had 3 young children, had a very jealous ex-husband, lost all her hair due to stress, weighed about 50 lbs more than me, etc.
One of my friends here recently divorced and has been searching for female companionship. Last Saturday night he got me to go out barhopping, and at one he ordered a drink, then got all grumpy because he thought the band sucked. Then he wound up getting into a conversation with an attractive woman (after she chastised him for ogling at another woman!). They spent the next 3 hours chatting each other up and getting increasingly drunk and they're set to go out on a date later this week (he's 58 and she's 39, btw). Trouble is, she's religious and seems to be libertarian or otherwise conservative, while he's irregligious and leans socialist. He wants to give it a try at least and I wish him luck, but I won't be surprised at all if it doesn't work out.
Myself, I have never been able to bring myself to try to pick up on someone in a bar. Of course, part of my problem is that usually the music is so load I can't hear what anyone else is saying. Hmm, maybe I need to get a hearing aid.

You just wait...your friend is on a one way track to TRAIN WRECK....he's just willing to overlook that stuff because she is young and that's kind of an ego booster for him..all the same.  It will be a train wreck....

If I were you, I would pop some popcorn, sit back and watch the show.....and then tell him he was warned....

I could be wrong.........but, yeah....I'm probably right....

Wow....that sounds a tad jaded don't you think???  Sorry....I'm just saying......

Nah, not jaded, just realistic.  If your friend is just looking for a short fling with a younger woman, Fred, then he may get what he's looking for.  That's not my sort of thing, but whatever.  If he's expecting a real relationship to come from it, then he's got an ugly surprise coming, 2 or 3 months down the road.

I feel ya. I have a solution to your problem...move to the north. The religious still outnumber us up here but it is slightly more accepted. The great thing about talking to atheists is that philosophical conversations don't have to end at "Is there a God?" They start with "There is no God" and that opens up the doors to all the other great philosophical conversations you can have from there.

My company is based down South so I head down there every now and then. Its nice weather but the Jesus billboards scare the crap out of me. Don't know how you do it. Good luck.

Thanks Anders!!!  I have been dealing with this crap my whole life, so I am pretty used to it by now. 

When you start with there is no god, your possibilities are limitless...that's what is so cool about it!!  I can think about whatever the hell I want to...guilt free :)  Where in the south is your company?  (Nashville has actually had a few free thinker signs put up...and the feedback has been surprisingly positive, but needless to say, I am feeling a little less alone every day!!!)  YAY

Funny. I'm an atheist monk. :-)

Ohhhmmmm brother Taran



   It looks like you have a puppy. How can you feel alone?

OMG I can't tell you how I understand........... D:  I also find the rare atheist guy that introduces himself to me is......NO.
Yeah.......I know........I wish it weren't true.  I guess because we are atheist, we have cut our chances by 80% that we meet someone...but you know what they say, it will find you when you least expect it!!  Don't settle :)  But I don't have to tell you that!  You are already ahead of the curve....lol....sorry you landed in the nunnery!!!
Yeah, the odds are good but the goods are odd.....
Preach it sister ;)~
