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

Prejudice Me?

Started by Earther Feb 5, 2013. 0 Replies

I have been thinking a lot about my position in life as an atheist.  Each of us have our own idea of what we are as an atheist but I am generally speaking as a person who was born into a world that…Continue

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

Is there anyone in the London Ontario Canada area who would like to meet for friendship and casual companionship? I am finding it more and more alienating being the only atheist I know. Kathy

Hey Everyone! This is for you.

Put this up on Facebook and Twitter (in a shorter version) and I thought it was appropriate for this group as well...

Please allow me to rant and vent here a little bit:

I'm sure everyone knows what tomorrow is, right? Single Awareness Day.

I know, I know, everyone thinks it's Valentine's Day. But for those who don't have anyone in their life (or has NEVER had anyone in their life, such as yours truly), it's one of the most painful days of the year.

Hallmark holiday and all that, yeah, but when you see all the feature stories in the news, couples having a great time and even bachelorette parties on the Landing the Loop or Soulard, it makes me feel totally inadequate, rejected and alone, especially here in St. Louis. It totally sucks being alone.

OK, rant over. Thank you for letting me vent.

"It's having a dozen things to do and a hand full of little goals but ignoring them all because it all seems a waste of time when there's no one to share things with"

poetry to my eyes.

Glad to have you here Mr. M.

I saw the question up above, "what is lonely?"  Lonely is sitting at my desk in the morning in the quiet of an empty house wishing for nothing more than for a friend to share a conversation and a point of view.  It's having a dozen things to do and a hand full of little goals but ignoring them all because it all seems a waste of time when there's no one to share things with.  It's having a loving family but still knowing you are insignificant in their lives.  And it's knowing in your gut that nothing will ever change and this is all there ever will be. That is lonely.
