LONELY ATHEISTS

This is a group for atheists who are finding it hard to find others to talk to. Not only am I an atheist, but a lesbian as well, so you can imagine how hard it is to find people to talk to. This group is for all those who just want someone to talk to and relate to

The sporadic acute pangs of loneliness

Started by Michael OL Dec 26, 2012. 0 Replies

Living alone obviously implies a certain element of, well, being alone - albeit not necessarily loneliness.  Most times, one can immerse oneself in work, a hobby, a book, or some other distraction. …Continue

Maybe this is the wrong group for me--not sure.  My lonliness is the complete detatchement from friends and family due to my beliefs (or lack there of).  I joined NEXUS to try and engage others in conversation--and i admit i have a need to connect with others that are like minded, intelligent, and not afraid to express themselves on matters regarding religion and its oppression of our lives as individuals, as sexual beings, and a constant negative influence on those things around me.  It  both angers and frustrates me and I have no one to speak with about it.  So there it is, laid bare.

Sorry to hear about that Selina. I've had that happen to me.

You will find a true friend. And we are here for you!

my best friend decided he didn't want to hang out with me anymore. He was my best friend so it hurts a lot. When people find new friends to hang out with, they don't care about you anymore.

Same here Nova I am a geek/nerd Goth and also Atheist. Rare combination indeed.
Comment by Nova Constantine on May 8, 2012 at 1:44pm

lonliness can be brought by the fact that yo uare different compared with the others around.. I am lonly since I am in the middle of the centre of Anglican Church surrounded by religious people thta are far more fundamentalist that they admit.. I suppose that a nerd, goth with bisexual tendencies is not the mainstream prefference...

Sorry to hear that Michael OL. I hope you are able to find another companion that is supportive of you.
Comment by Michael OL on May 5, 2012 at 8:36pm

Many here have posted that they are lonely because they have been shunned by the mainstream world suffused by religious dogma.  It's true that having an unusual worldview can invite rejection and outright antagonism.  But speaking personally, the problem isn't that I have been ostracized because of atheism.  Rather, not being a theist, I am unable to partake of community associations and social venues that are religion-based.  It's a sort of self-segregation.

But none of this really mattered when I was happily married.  My wife left me last year, and the awful feeling of loneliness has been intolerably acute.  We live in a rural setting, with little contact with neighbors.  But we had each other.  Now we no longer have the mutual support that marriage partners bring to one another.
