"I think many atheist woman are more likely to put 'other' or leave blank the religion box not to be too deterrent. For example, the atheist lady I just met put 'other, and quite serious about it' for religion on OKC, so I was…"
"Theist guys are creepy, that can keep both the theist and atheist women away.
I put a personal ad in CL, I took a long time trying to figure out the most friendly & light-hearted way of saying I'd prefer an atheist, (as if I should have to…"
"My line is something like, "I'm a patriot and an atheist, and equally passionate about both." I haven't looked at it in a while, but that's roughly how I wrote it. I go on to say that the people who make me intolerant are…"
"Haha, it's my mind's way of joking with me. "If you believed in god you could have more [false] friends!" But I always remind my self it's the quality of my friends, not the quantity that matters ;) I am quite happy with my…"

"There are more atheist guys and women are less likely to include that in our profiles because for the most part women don't care :-). At least I didn't and I'm assuming that other women aren't that much different from me.
"I think another reason there are fewer atheist women is that girls are still often taught to be submissive, especially in certain religious circles. Add that to the same religious teaching/brainwashing that the boys are getting, and the girls are…"
"I Can't handle not being able to express ideas anymore. Most of the "spiritual" ones tend to be deist Christian hybrids. The way I've figured it lately is if you don't know what atheist or even list yourself as agnostic…"
"Could'n't have said it better myself Orson.
So you must sift and surf. Alot of the non believing women use other terms, such as; other, not religious and spiritual. You'd be surprised how many people (not just women) don't know…"
