thank you for creating this group Heather

i happen to be unfortunately living in the 'bible-belt' of the prairies where the 'religious bullying' is the normal of the day...

seems many years have slipped by and i now find most enjoyment from just picking up my camera, (hobby from 30 years ago brought up to date with a used digital), and wandering alone....


Hey hey, this is Avicenna,


Some facts include the fact that I am constructed out of chocolate, am a British Expat in India and am a Medical student. Making me a stereotype. 



(Yes I was the first!)

I want some of THAT firewater.
Hi! I'm Mark.

I'm 30 and live in south central Indiana. I work in a factory and go to school part time for a BSME. Given the opportunity, I think I'll also get an EE degree and/or CS degree - my interests are at the intersection of those three fields.

My hobbies include metalworking, electronics, and programming. Robotics has always fascinated me, but I've never spent much money on it. I read quite a bit - mostly scifi and nonfiction. I'm an occasional gamer, mostly playing FPSes and Portal.

I like sarcasm and satire - Ambrose Bierce, Pastor Deacon Fred, and so on.

I've never been married and don't have any children. I'd like to have children, but I'm still open to a long term relationship with a woman who doesn't want children.

If you haven't ever read OKTrends (OKCupid's blog), you should. There's some hilarious stuff on there, as well as some interesting and useful stuff. At least one of them is an atheist, and their blog posts often show correlations between religion (or lack thereof) and some other statistic.

In , they write about several questions that show potential for long-term compatibility. My answers are in parenthesis:

Do you like horror movies? (I don't like horror, whether in book or movie form)

Have you ever traveled around another country alone? (No, and I don't see myself doing so - I'd rather share the experience with someone)

Wouldn't it be fun to chuck it all and go live on a sailboat? (A sailboat would be fun for a bit, but I have a lot of material possessions that you can pry out of my cold, dead hands. Speaking of which, a lack of internet *would* kill me. I've heard of acoustic modems... do aquatic modems exist? Can we stay close enough to shore for wifi? You get the drift :D )

Haha- Definitely have to figure out internet logistics before living on a sailboat!


Thanks for the article... funny stuff.  I wouldn't have thought to ask "Do you prefer the people in your life to be simple or complex?"  Answers to that question are supposed to predict compatibility on political issues.

The idea of valuing simplicity has bugged me for a long time. Hearing that there is a correlation with being conservative does not surprise me, but I wouldn't have thought to ask it either :)
hello - new here - 54 SWM in Houston Texas, Harley riding Free Thinker...
Hi.  I'm Michael in North Hollywood (sub. of Los Angeles) Calif.  I'm 63, in electric utility grid operations.  I am passionate about science and being rational, but have feelings.  I'm just 5'6" short, so for taller ladies, I will stand on my toes to kiss goodnight.
Hi everybody, I'm 44 and widowed since '03. I'm currently living in a small town in SW Georgia, which is driving me nuts! You can't drive 2 blocks in this town w/o hitting a church. I've recently gone back to school since my first career as a degenerate drug addict didn't work out to well for me lol. But I'm happy to say that I'm clean and sober now. I guess I'd have to say that I fall into the secular humanist category. I didn't have any major transformational epiphany as I was brought up as a Unitarian Universalist. I guess that's about it for starters. Thanks for taking the time to read about me.
I'm Blake, just some goofy bastard that calls Orange County, California home... and please don't hold that against me. Growing up in the shadow of the mega-churches that call my stomping grounds home, it has become increasingly difficult to connect with people that would associate with a heathen like myself.

I'm a writer by trade, yet an office drone by paycheck. I'm a science geek and comedy nerd, which makes for quite the bar conversation. I defy the stereotype by loving the physics of sports just below the jock like excitement of WOOOO GO BASEBALL! (Sorry... got away from me there.)

I'm just another "artist" type working a day job, enjoying my all too brief existence on this rock. On the constant hunt for new friends, I think this is a great place to start.

Welcome, Michael. Good luck with your search!

Thought I'd finally add my name to the lists as well.  I am 5'8, and 185 pounds. Brown hair and Blue eyes.  Average looks and I consider myself moderately intelligent.  I have never been married or have any kids.  I am just north of Santa Cruz.  Send me a picture and I'll send one back.  Oh, I like to travel, cook, read my Kindle, garden, play and hike.  I am not into drinking or drama, though I like a glass of 2 buck chuck from time to time.  Don't be shy! You only live once(unless we're wrong) ;)
