"I'm looking for a long-term relationship, I'm interested in meeting an atheist, the last book I read was by Joyce Meyer."
If you're reading books by somebody like Joyce Meyer, you're not really interested in meeting atheists. At best, you're thinking, "Once I meet someone really nice, if they happen to be an atheist, I can bring them to God. And then we'll be so happy."
People really need to be honest with themselves before they're ready to meet someone else.
Here in central Iowa, most people don't honestly know what Agnostic means, so I don't bother listing myself as that on Batch in my profile. In the checklist of traits part of the profile, one of the categories you can use to ID yourself on religion is Spiritual, But Not Religious. I use that one, which is become sort of the code word on Batch for indicating that either you are not religious or else a non-believer. When you look at someone's profile, you can also see which categories of religious preference they are looking for in someone to date. Only about 25% of the women my age in my area are looking for someone or will accept someone who is Spiritual, but Not Religous. The whole term makes me cringe, but that's how the game is played here. Once in a blue moon I run across a woman's profile on Batch from my area that's my age identifying as an Agnostic, which I'm sure most of the men that see it have no idea what it means and probably don't care as long as she's hot- looking.
If I had a dollar ... I could buy myself a custom made man with the money I made from every theist that was gonna save my soul and fornicate with me. smh
(Just this passed week? 5 soul-savers. And this is with a disclaimer that I don't do religion or the religious. ? It's tough getting old, being single and being in the Bible Belt. They want to procreate when young, they're worried about dying/Heaven/Hell when older. And that sums up why I'm single, don't date, and am starting my cat collecting in earnest.) ???
