otoh, i couldn't date someone who was really religious. maybe vaguely deist, but i just couldn't hang with an out and out xtian. the older i get the more true that is, too.
so i suppose i'm here for general networking, and socializing a bit. that works just fine. of course if anyone here is in chicago and wants to have a beer and shoot the shit i'd be game. i don't know many folks out here yet and discussing atheist and skeptical topics is of great interest to me.
Since someone else brought the subject up, if anyone knows of a single girl in my area, with a good temperament, and who doesn't strongly object to me sounding off about religion every other minute, that would be cool... my lack of religion has been a 'big thing' with girls in the past.
I'm a 53-year-old, chubby, married lady. Sorry, but I'm already hooked up and have been for 31 years. I have heard tell, though, that somewhere in the world other atheists exist. I'm bound and determined to find out.
I came here to just visit with other atheists, I don't know any in real life. Well, I might but I don't usually talk about it with people.
Hooking up isn't my main goal here, but I'm starting to like the idea because it would be a big plus to know that she is an atheist too.
I, like many of you, never thought of hooking up when I signed on here. Besides I'm married and the thought of meeting someone online, even if I were single, is scary to me even though I understand many people have found happiness that way. Again, like many of you, there are very few atheist out in the open where I live and I thought it would be cool to meet more. Just knowing you guys are out there is better than sitting around feeling like you are the only souless heathen bastard with a no-class ticket straight to hell. So here's to us!
I signed up to meet and talk to interesting people. Plus I was hoping to find a few more soldiers who are atheists as well, I don't know very many. So in short mostly just to socialize. But if anyones interested I'm 19 years old, athletic, and single.
