Wow, pretty excited to see a social place to find like minded science loving people!

In terms of dating I am looking for a man but would also love to meet up with ladies in my local area for friendship!

I’m looking for a life best friend but sure is hard to find altruistic intelligent science literate people. This site gives me hope!

I travel for a living and have recently reached all my hard earned career goals. As a goal oriented person my next goal is to find a companion to share life with. I think finding someone that one can share life on an intimate level puts the cherry on top of the life cake.

I think intimacy, or a relationship in general, is on a triangle scale, body-heart-mind. If you find someone that stimulates you on all three then that’s when you know you’ve found your starmate (atheists version of soulmate). If you have the body, attraction is there but cannot have a deep conversation with the person on your intellectual level (mind) then the relationship cannot be fully fulfilling. I think that’s what the search is, to find someone that fulfills the triangle.

Life can be good and rather too short. There’s always learning to be had and would be wonderful to meet fellow freethinkers to learn from and share what life lessons come.

Has anyone ever had the challenge of dealing with a man who’s old school? I am close to a former male colleague who is like a brother to me. We really care for each other but there is like zero romantic attachment. I’m even thinking of asking him to deliver the eulogy at my funeral. He lives in another state but comes here for business 3-4 times a year and we always go out to dinner. I was telling my current flame about how jealous my husband would get over this. He said he felt the same way. I tried talking to him about it but the conversation went south in a hurry. I’m not quite sure what to do. The one thing I know for sure is that I’m not giving up my dinners with my friend. Any advice?

Oh goodness! It’s so common to have mixed sex friends these days (including LGBTQ), to not be ok with a friend of yours being other than the same sex as you is simply living with his head in the sand. Does he only have male friends? Perhaps this has a past nerve getting jostled? It is your life, he doesn’t own you first of all but if he cares for you he should be willing to communicate reasonably with you about it. Seems to me this situation should be handled with care and patience. Maybe let him bring it up next time if he feels ready to talk about it but in the mean time visit with your friend but keep it private.

People we meet.
SunshineBee comments:
That is the question? Was it “God’s will” or the “Universe’s will” (is there a difference?) or are we just being human giving meaning to random events?
I was ambushed again on my morning walk in the woods. Desperately lonely people attach themselves to me and have monologues about their: religion, pseudo-science, diet, How I saved myself from Western Medicine, husband's illness, etc. Is there a compassionate but effective way to disengage? I tried taking a new trail, she followed. I tried to redirect the conversation, but she was relentless. She wanted to know my schedule for walking, and I felt like I was being stalked. Is the following too mean? "May I speak for just a moment?Thank you. My morning walk is very important to me. I come here to listen to the birds and the wind in the trees and focus my thoughts to better cope with the turmoil in today's world. Your proselytizing is interfering with the objective of my walk and I would rather be alone. Have a nice walk". Suggestions?
SunshineBee comments:
Maybe keep it simple? “I’m an atheist” and watch her run?! ;-D
How well has this site worked for you? Have you met anyone, friends or otherwise? Yes, I'm being nosey!
SunshineBee comments:
I have had many wonderful discussions; individual conversations with members who have been insightful to talk to and now have two friends I talk to regularly. This place is still in its infancy yet is so refreshing and enjoyable to be a part of. Tickles the brain which is more than many other sites! I’m quite happy here :)
Love black cats ❤
SunshineBee comments:
Aaaawwwweeee, well said! I'll never look at my black cat the same again hah!
I am leaving this group because I think I have met my perfect hippie partner. @beansdad. I just wanted to share to encourage those still looking.
SunshineBee comments:
How wonderful!! Yes thank you for sharing this encouraging news!!
But of course.

RE: puking ..look what I found lol!
Created this meme after my last boyfriend and I broke up. What meme suits your best relationship?
SunshineBee comments:
I suppose this one, he taught me what incredible joy peace and happiness cuddling could bring:
Happy national donut day. Where's mine?
SunshineBee comments:
Hah! I ate mine years ago and there's still evidence of it I'm having trouble getting rid of so had to quit celebrating :( Was fun while I had good digestion and metabolism, oh well.
When you finally find that special person, make sure you let them know they're appreciate on a regular basis. Leave them a note at least once a week that says remember I could have smother you with a pillow last night but I didn't.
SunshineBee comments:
Aaawwweee, the romance from this is oozing, (L) Be still their heart!
Who created God?
SunshineBee comments:
Lol that one’s easy, humans invented ..errr created god. Hah! Suppose it’s easy to interpreted this as a beginning living on a planet where life has a beginning and an end. Space may not be so simple?
What was the happiest day of your life? For me it was the day I graduated from college. I was 45 and the first person in my family to get a bachelor’s degree. The ceremony took place a couple hours away from home so I rented a “sleeps a bazillion” cabin and was joined by my four sisters, a brother, two of my three sons (the other was in the USAF stationed in Europe), my soon to be daughter-in-law, my in-laws, many nieces and nephews. For the actual ceremony they were joined by my boss, his wife, and son, and my best friend, her husband and son. My best friend bought my dress and her husband gave me an ounce of pot. Afterwards I went on a week-long vacation with my sisters. Good times.

I’ve always been career oriented so after chasing a job for 17 years I finally got it despite going through a divorce and moving to a brand new location (lots of stress during the interview..of a lifetime). It was the hardest earned anything I’ve ever done and the absolute best day of my life when I got the good news!
Really feeling like I need a cigar and a glass of whiskey. And I don't smoke or drink anymore.
SunshineBee comments:
Sounds like you have a case of the Mondays?!
Just got my first 24 hour Facebook ban, for commenting on a post about religion. It was the usual old "If you don't like homosexuality because the bible says it's wrong, then you shouldn't eat shellfish, get tattoos etc." I followed up with something along the lines of "And the bible says it's okay to rape, as long as you marry your victim afterwards, and be sure to get a fair price when you sell your daughter." Goes against their community guidelines, apparently. Meanwhile, they're happy to do nothing about obvious scammers.
SunshineBee comments:
LOL!! For those moments I like to keep this handy:
What would it take to get you out on the Dance Floor?
SunshineBee comments:
Music that’s dance-to-able, a dance floor that is not empty, and a little bit of liquid courage!
We all have movies we like to watch over and over again. Some of those movies are better with someone snuggled up to your side. As a way of getting to know people, I feel like asking... What movie have you watched many times that you would still love to watch snuggled up with someone? Some people like horror and some love drama, though the internet suggests explicitly romantic movies like this list https://www.ranker.com/list/best-date-movies/ranker-film My personal favorite to watch and k about and talk to someone I vibe with about is probably V for Vendetta. It has so much to respond to and to feel and k about, making it a great shared experience if both people feel it.
SunshineBee comments:
Of all the movie genres I’d have to go with a comedy. The romantic stuff is fun but comedies seem to get the endorphins flowing and feels more intimate when it’s movie and cuddle time.
I'm starting to wonder about this online dating. Just not getting it. I'm not good at it. Anyone else like this?
SunshineBee comments:
Between the fake accounts, non-active active members, overall bad dates and the recent proud cross dresser narcissist, I’d say online dating is not what it once was. I’m leaning more towards this site and meetup.com. Though you may not necessarily find an agnostic with such and such age with such and such this and that, at least you are meeting people with shared interest (like hiking, biking, cooking...) and for the most part it’s free. Match/other is a waste of money in my opinion! Oh and if you cancel your match account, I suggest scrapping your information and pictures first, I have a sneaky suspicion they are used later when you are good and gone?!? That’s what it seems like at least.
Greetings to all. I'm new here. Just looking for some like minded folks to relate to. I live in an area of Idaho that's so rural they don't even deliver mail here. To top that off, the nearest place to shop is a BYU college town. I'm pretty isolated here!
SunshineBee comments:
Welcome! What has you living in such an isolated place?
In my head, this group is like the open-air lounge of a major spaceport. We teleport here and hang out to chat with fellow travelers during our layovers on our way to somewhere else. At least, that's how it starts. But the more we stop by and chat, we begin to notice that we see familiar faces. Some regularly, some infrequently, but always friendly. We meet some pretty interesting specimens of alien life we never knew existed, and celebrate the differences between our two species. The more we come and hang out, the more we get to know one another and the differences become unnoticeable. Some come here, meet, chat, get to know one another, and find love along the way. Sometimes romantically, and they begin traveling together, while others find kinship, and others find friendship. But, we always find something we needed, even if we didn't know we needed it until we found it. So we begin to look forward to our layovers here, and for some, such as myself, they become the highlight of our day, on our daily commute to wherever our final destinations might be. At least, that's how I feel about this place (and you all). Thanks for putting up with me! Cheers!

Oh my Odin I LOVE this geeky description!!! (L) (L) bravo, well said!
Hi, I'm john .. been single for over 27 and a half years and still can't find a good woman for me .. I keeps running into a lot of bad ones that only want money and not me for me ..im tired of that .. I'm too good to be hurt . I'm very sensitive guy that only wants to be liked and loved ..
SunshineBee comments:
Hi John! Forgive the question but why are they after your money? I ask because to be after money to me means they know you have it, are you projecting your wealth by chance? Sorry to hear youve had such little success, might I also add what a fun group this is, I think you’ll find this place quite refreshing :)
I would like to have a three hour coffee with ...

Alive today: Malala and Bill Nye Historical figure I’d love to know more about and ask many questions of: Hypatia and Carl Sagan
Such a rare find but when and if you do ever find, hold on and treat them well. It is all about the small simple gestures.

First date dinner or no dinner, movie or no movie?
SunshineBee comments:
First dates are scary!! I say keep it simple, coffee or a simple lunch; keep it simple cuz nerves can create odd eating/drinking capabilities, like the inability to, eekk! Besides if conversation is going well having food in front of you will just get cold then you’re eating food that may be cringe worthy and then your date may think you’re cringing at them.. so complicated! Keep it simple ;)
Since I've discovered Agnostic.com I have realized that it is an incredible tool that we Agnostics, Athiests, and Skeptics should embrace...Where else can we be free to express our beliefs as in depth as we can here? Even Facebook does not specifically cater to our direct wants and needs as expressly as this wonderful site does...I'm pretty damn hooked on it....
SunshineBee comments:
Agreed. Thanks to the add on FB I am here and how refreshing it is! Bravo to the creators!
