Getting free of religion is fantastic, isn’t it? Ever since I did, I continue to grow in excitement about life and its changes. I have learned to laugh easily. Now I am ready for a little traveling and a lot of new adventures. I love being around any bodies of water and hiking is amazing in the lush forests of Oregon.

Besides just doing things for fun, I enjoy working on household projects and problem solving. But they are much more fun when collaborating with another mind. Time spent with like minds is always richer.

I am happy and comfortable with me, so I am NOT desperate for a serious relationship! I am starting over, so if you want someone who already knows just what they want, it's not me, lol.

If you have been religious, how has being free of it affected your life?

Good stuff. And Keanu really looks like he means it so it's true for sure. :)
Can someone explain this to me? How is it possible in 21st century that there are 70.6% believers in...
thislife comments on Jul 8, 2018:
There's this thing called faith. They just use that when they come across any of it that doesn't make sense.

thislife comments on Jul 5, 2018:
By the way, I went to my settings and disabled the hovering feature. Now I miss it when I try to see someone's age or location, etc. after reading their comment, so I will turn it back on. It just doesn't make sense that the other member gets notified that I wanted a little background to analyze their comment. Or rather, I don't need to know when others do.

I believed for decades. It takes a lot of work and lying to yourself to believe irrational teachings. When I quit trying to believe, it was like stepping into fresh air. I will never look back.

My ideal is probably another introvert, or maybe better would be an extrovert who doesn't have the problem of talking too much (is that an oxymoron?).
