Dan, I never had any complaints. ;-)

I just wrote a long comment then erased it. Too much overshare and too jaded.

All of my major relationships have been with nontheist. I never made that a rule, it jsut happened.

If I had to do it over again, I think I'd go for the best kisser & cuddler. That was a semi-evangelical Methodist minister on the downlow.

Consider the possibility that the happiness we seek outside ourselves, particularly in a relationship with another, is a dead end. No one else can make us happy, and no relationship can make us complete. Happiness is not something that we find outside ourselves. It is something that we find, or rather, cultivate within ourselves. The one who can best meet our needs, be the best friend that we can have, be the one who can comfort us and take care of us the best, is none other than our own self. I believe that once we become the one that we seek, once we no longer seek love from others, but seek to share the love that we have for our self with everyone else – that is when we will attract love from others.

I feel the same way Philip. I miss being in love. I go from dating site to dating site. All I want is a stable person who is not religious, shares some interests, and is willing to share everyday life with me. There I go, writing my personal ad. LOL It seems that the closer technology brings us to each other, the further it keeps us apart. But, I'm not giving up either.

Richard and Dominic- Thank you for your comments. I have used internet dating sights and have been left a bit jaded. Maybe I should try it again. Dominic, I think you said it best when you said "let alone anyone of quality." That has been my issues- finding a mature, trustworthy person. There is a gay dating sight that costs $1000. That could also be an option, I guess. Seems too manufactured but it may provide men interested in a serious relationship. I'm trying not to give up on love.

If anyone knows the answer to that one, please let me know also. I've tried dating sites and a local atheist meet-up, but find it difficult to meet an atheist, let alone anyone of quality, for a relationship.

I agree . It is. :-)

Well I use match.com and Okcupid - and they do have atheism as a searchable criteria and cater for exclusively gay dates.

My cousin is visiting next month, I was planning on telling her before she comes and then we can talk it all through when she's here. I just know they'll ask me how I am and if I'm seeing anyone and I really rather not have to lie again then once they know that's breached the wall of separation between the interwebs, my friends and family so it can only be a matter of time till I'm out to my parents and sibling.

Speaking of relationships, at 45, I am finding it difficult to meet men to date(and hopefully for something more). I would prefer to date an atheist. Anyone have advice?
I meet many gay people who keep their religious beliefs as if trying to prove that they are good, moral and as if trying to fit in.
