"Mel, I'm also in Dayton, unfortunately more or less permanently.  Did the graduate school thing in Los Angeles, which indeed was a welcome respite from the drudgery of the Midwest.  But one adapts as well as one can, hopefully without…"

Mel Futrell replied to A Former Member's discussion Why are you single? in the group Atheist Singles
"I can relate to 95% of your description of Aspergers, and many of the follow-on comments. Makes me wonder if I would be diagnosed as such. Then, second thoughts find me questioning what such knowledge would do for me, anyway..."

Mel Futrell replied to A Former Member's discussion Why are you single? in the group Atheist Singles
"Danielle, you're absolutely right -- it's a liability, not an asset! I'm now 37, been back in school since just turning 30. Most of my classmates have been 10 to 15 years younger, and even many professors, my age or younger. So, I…"

Mel Futrell replied to A Former Member's discussion Why are you single? in the group Atheist Singles
"Well, the intro to this group says, "Are you single and looking? Then join!" I almost didn't join, because I'm single, but I'm not looking. More accurately, I'm single and open to meeting someone, but I'm not…"

Mel Futrell commented on Zeus's group Los Angeles
"I don't think LA is very active, from an organized perspective, because there's so much tolerance of disparate thought, it's not needed. I grew up in the Midwest, and have had business that takes me to the Bible Belt for weeks on end,…"

Mel Futrell replied to Gold Guy's discussion Could you date a highly religious person? in the group Atheist Singles
"Well, the problem is never really whether *I* would date a highly religious person, but more that highly religious people generally have a problem dating "Oh, [we] of little [i.e. no] faith", if they TRULY believe in their convictions.…"

Mel Futrell replied to A Former Member's discussion Member Survey: What languages can you speak, write, or read? in the group LINGUAPHILES & SESQUIPEDALIANS
"What languages can you speak, write, or read? I know I'm coming late to this party, but just wanted to weigh in. A subtle amendment to your question, however: What languages can you speak, write, read, or sign? Ah, now I can answer properly.…"

Mel, I'm also in Dayton, unfortunately more or less permanently.  Did the graduate school thing in Los Angeles, which indeed was a welcome respite from the drudgery of the Midwest.  But one adapts as well as one can, hopefully without futility.  But at least the Midwest doesn't have the vituperative religious stridency that we find even further south.  When's graduation?
