Speaking of Columbus Ohio, domestic partners of city workers now to have benefits. My partner isn't very domestic, maybe I need to move to Columbus. Nah, they probably wont do the windows either.

Well, I appreciate the input from everyone. I guess I touched on a sensitive topic for many of us. I've decided to try to put myself out there more and be positive. We'll see what happens. Thanks, again.
If you're from the Columbus, Ohio area, I could always use friends.

There is nothing more joyful than the kindness of strangers.

bizarre beleif system of a gay christian at the Moody bible institute. mlive.com. Citing statistics that suggest 91 percent of non-Christians see churchgoers as anti-homosexual, Yuan said Christian schools must spark dialogue instead of fear and anxiety. Then says that his homosexuality need not consign him to singleness forever. “We need to come around in how we view relationships,” said Yuan, stating that marriage should be less about sex than about a man and woman loving each other. “You don’t have to be heterosexual to get married. My identity in Christ is No. 1.” also :“I did not leave homosexuality because it was so bad. I left homosexuality because I found something better, and that was Jesus.” I think the truth is he did not "leave homosexuality", he's still gay and admits it, he suppresses it. Bet he's an interesting date on Saturday night.....

The comments on the article, as usual, do not build confidence in the intelligence of humans. Some aren't bad.

On the other hand, you could be like the dog chasing the bus, the bus stops, and the dog thinks "now what do I do?"

I have been reading this thread but this is my first post. I too have sort of given up on finding someone. I live in a small city in Mass where there are very limited options in meeting people. I am not a bar person. I am enrolled in college at the moment but at 47 I am almost 30 years older than most of the people I meet there. There does not seem to be an active GSA (I know that at one time there was) and no Atheist org that I can find there either. The local skeptic meetup is in Boston, almost an hour away. I just wish it was easier to meet new people. I do have hobbies and volunteer for a few local organizations. But right now at my house it's just me, 3 dogs, 3 birds and a cat. LOL. My best female friends are all str8. I have alot of gay male friends but almost no lesbian ones.
For a very long period of my adult life I had an undiagnosed and untreated mental illness that I know kept me from having any successful long term relationships. The last LTR which was not that long was in 2001. Now that my illness is under control with medication, I feel like it's time to really work on finding someone. But I agree with what others have said, looking aggressively and being needy is going to get you no where. So I continue to plug along and hope that unexpectedly I will finally meet someone.
The Atheist aspect just makes it that much more difficult. I don't think i could really be with someone that was practicing a religion. I have a hard enough time being friends with some of them! But i think that the idea that someone that compliments you instead of being just like you is what is going to be successful in a relationship. So the odds are stacked against me but maybe one day it will happen. I'll let you all know if it does!

Hey - I got my photo/logo back. It disappeared so I loaded it, but it did not show up for my second message either, so I just added it again and now it seems to be working. Technology can be so challenging some times.

I would love to provide a woman's input, but I don't think I have much. At 41, I feel like I know less about relationships and love than I ever have. My long term gf died 2 years ago. She was an atheist and she was going to be the one I could stick it out with. I'm really not the marrying kind, as I love being single and flirting and picking up girls, but I can make it work with the right girl.

I have lived in my little Texas town for 19 years, and I know everyone, so I am the go-to lesbian for women who want to "experiment." I'm the cute little gay vet who isn't threatening, and I play that card constantly. I don't know when or if I will ever be seeking a relationship. My constant companion these days is my darling main fag, Tom. He is an English professor, and since my gf died, we have been joined at the un-hip. I'm taking him home with me for Thanksgiving, which means there will be 4 gays (and 4 atheists) at the table (two of my cousins are gay)!

I hope all of you who are seeking love find it. At this point in my life, I am running from it.

Dominic said: "that one must find someone who compliments you, rather than looking for someone who completes you."

Where were you 20 years ago when I needed you? :-) Time to pack up the U-Haul and move to FLorida. Although that might confuse and alarm my partner. This is a perfect expression of what I should have known. Although, my hormones were in overdrive and I might not have listened.

Would love to have some input from women on this thread too. My impression is that the dynamic can be quite different, but that's a view as someone who isn't exposed much outside of my little suburban silo.

Thanks for your comments, Dom. You have a lot of great insights and I certainly understand what you are saying. I have not been an atheist for very long and I was fortunate enough to already be in a loving relationship as my world view evolved. Had I been an atheist when I first met James I am not sure that we would have developed the relationship that we have today. It is certainly helpful in the beginning to have shared interests and a lot of common ground. It is much easier, once you love someone, to accept the directions in which they grow and evolve, even if you do not grow in the same way or at the same speed. Neither James nor I are the same people that we were when we met, but we have been fortunate to be able to share our journeys.
