"Actually, there are a majority of men in EVERY singles-oriented group. Online or otherwise. Typical ratios run from 2 to 1 at the best to 30 to 1 or more at the worst. Any singles group always has trouble recruiting women, which is why they…"
"I don't have any answers, lol. But I feel your pain. Although I do feel as if Atheist women are less likely to be activist. So your more likely to find an abundance of male Atheist within anti-theist domains."

Greetings, Mr. Jones! I notice you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus since Feb. <sigh> Sometimes it can seem a bit fragmented, with different groups for every interest. Please consider a group for socializing, where we talk about whatever's on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D You might feel more at home.
Well, that sure took me a shamefully long time to respond to! I get active on the internet for a while and then get immersed in the schoolwork--tedious, time-consuming, technical 3D animation assignments and delightful stress/screen-related migraines. And then I get back around the intertubz once I get a nice, relaxing class (like college math!), and it is not pretty! For this and all my (internet) sins, I am heartily sorry! ;)
But enough 'bout me--how 'bout you? Uhm...sounding some agreement with some of the commenters here. A philosophy/psych/polsci major with socialist leanings...here? Heck, I'm amazed you're not getting more hits! But I don't understand most chicks anyway, never did. :)
I don't think anyone has asked me that yet! Actually had to think about that for a bit.
I'd probably give it a try, but always keeping in mind that my brother's girlfriend said the same thing. At first, anyway. Not sure if guys are quite as much like that, so I might have better luck.
A-course, unlike my brother, relocation is less of a dream and more of a necessity if I'm going to pay back my exhorbitant student loans. So, unlike my brother, I'm California-bound with or without any SO I might have picked up in the meantime.
That is a good question that I hadn't considered. Amazingly enough, since it seems like an obvious one. Which is the reason for what seems to me an overly-detailed answer--it's going on my own page too.
Capitalism has some good points--mainly giving an important sense of self-efficacy--but without socialist tempering, I think the only place it can go is some sort of feudalism. (I think there might be some people who would love to see that happen, though!)
