I’m a single mom, raising a teen son. I’m vegan and involved in dog rescue.
Thank you for saving them! 💜
Glad to connect with so many like-minded people via this app. Other social networking and dating sites frustrate me due to people playing games. I'm a nerdy, sarcastic, intelligent woman. I'm fairly eclectic in my tastes in just about every area. This comes from my upbringing. I was raised by two baby boomers. My dad is a recovering Catholic and my mom a disillusioned Lutheran. They were hip, young parents who wanted to make sure we understood the world and weren't going to be blindsided by life. I'm from Minnesota originally, but grew up in Detroit in the '80s. It was the best! We had sports, museums, culture, and Canada right across the river. I lived in a neighborhood of immigrants and working class folks. I had friends from all over the world right in my backyard. This led to an openness and interest in other people that eventually led me to teaching. I'm a progressive, children are the future, help the poor, screw the rich, stop human traffiking, save the planet and all the animals kind of gal. But I'm also a hypocrite because I love me some steak, and pork chops, ooh, and don't forget the bacon. I read a lot. Love movies, especially cult classics. I enjoy spending time in the woods walking, reading, exploring but I also enjoy spending time in the city. Music is huge in my life, so there is always something playing--genre depends on my mood. I have a penchant for Broadway shows and musicals (Current faves are Hamilton, Waitress, Dear Evan Hanson, and Greatest Showman). I'm also a sci-fi nerd specializing in Star Wars and Doctor Who. I'm a single mom of the funniest and sweetest kid you'll ever meet. He is my world even as he morphs into a surly teen. My three cats (yes, I know... in my defense, two are foster fails) are my fur babies. I live on the southeast side of Cbus in a one stop-light town. Its 4 miles to civilization, 20 minutes to downtown, and I like it this way...for now.

Note: This bio is a WIP (work in progress). I'm adding to it periodically, so it might look a little disjointed. Thanks for stoppin' by! I want to say I really enjoy the sense of community that exists here. I love the intelligent questions and comments and am having a great time. (Still feel this way as of 5/10/18.) I'm a tall, bald, in decent shape "older" guy with two kids from two marriages. One is an adult (sort of) and the other lives P/T with me and with her mom. She's a teenager. I could go on and on about her, but this is supposed to be about MEEEE! LOL! I love sci-fi/fantasy films & books. Well versed in most seasons and feature film versions of Star Trek. Norwegian CL is now doing Star Trek cruises and the geeky fanboy in me is dying to go! I consider myself brutally honest. With age, I have had to work to keep my metabolism steaming along so I try to exercise vigorously and regularly. I'm kind of a Disney nut too (despite the fact that they seem to be rapidly pricing themselves out of their original target demographic; middle-class families. I still feel the "magic" when I stroll through Disneyland and love that they now own Marvel, Lucasfilm, and Pixar, of course. It's a perfect marriage that is yielding some wonderful results. I also love vacationing in Hawaii and cruising in tropical climes. I have a (real) fantasy of retiring in HI (and I do mean fantasy), but the cost of living there is just too high so I'll have to "settle" for someplace more affordable. South Florida, maybe? Locally, I have had a love affair with Lake Tahoe since my first visit there in 1977. I have enjoyed both summer and winter activity there and would love to own a cabin or some sort of vacation home in the Tahoe basin. I consider myself beyond Libertarian (but you can call me a Libertarian), politically, and very pro Capitalist (real Capitalism, not the watered-down "crony" version we currently enjoy). I'm kind of a late bloomer to Atheism and even to religion. I was "recruited" into the Baptist religion at age 16 by a youth minister who "witnessed" to me in the middle of the street. At the time, I bought it hook, line, and sinker and proceeded to piss everyone I knew off by trying to "save" them. LOL! A few years later, I saw the light and how ridiculous the whole, mystical thing really is. I'm a wino and am fortunate enough to live in a large wine-producing area, sitting within 30 minutes to 1HR drive of 3 Appalachians (4 if you count Napa Valley). I'm fond of Zins (and we have many in the area) and love going tasting. I also enjoy craft beers and LOVE how this industry has exploded. Would love to hook up (as in meet, ok?) other local winos for tasting and socializing. Karaoke anyone? I "sing" a small repertoire of songs, some of which I have convinced myself I can do well. LOL! If you're in the greater Sacramento area...Hmmm. =] Again, I love the sense of community here, and the nice, intelligent people who continue to populate it, despite the massive growth it is experiencing.
NOBODY puts Baby in the corner!
born a german heathen, i got used early on to being the odd one out, the dreamer, the loner. over the years i acquired a deep respect for the natural life on this planet, yet when it comes to my fellow humans i still have to learn a lot about owning my experience fully responsible & with love. i am here for open-minded communication with kind, mature & intelligent humans ;)
seriously? or just a depraved sense of humour?
I'm recently divorced and looking to meet new people - hoping to meet someone special! I love music a lot and primarily listen to classic rock, rock, rock and metal. Not a fan of country music. Some favorite bands would be Zeppelin, Steely Dan, Elton John, Blind Melon, Alice in Chains, System of a Down, Rage Against the Machine, Megadeth, Slayer, etc. While I can totally get into something slow and melodic, I definitely like heavy stuff that gets my heart pumping! I have played drums for almost 30 years and recently bought a bass guitar to play with. Nothing serious - just a hobby. I like fast or extreme amusement park rides and ride a motorcycle (cruiser but not a Harley). I'm a bit of a geek at heart. I love technology, space related stuff and gadgets. I like watching short indie films (~3 minute movies) and have interests in making and editing them. I work shift work and that includes days, nights, weekends and holidays. I do get days off of course but it's not your typical 'nights and weekends off' kind of lifestyle. I'm dependable and responsible but I haven't forgotten how to have fun and enjoy life - I am most definitely a goofball. My kids would tell you that I'm arguably the coolest dad they know.
Math/CS Professor at nearby liberal arts college. Love dancing, hiking, kayaking. theater. travel. Looking for a compassionate, intelligent companion who is looking to enjoy life to its fullest and does not sweat the small stuff. I am quite a left-leaning liberal but I enjoy hearing and discussing other perspectives. Having said that, I tend to shy away from extreme right-wing conservatives. I love animals and currently own (or shall I say am owned by) two cats. I love dogs but my current lifestyle and living space do not support owning one. I love travel and would like to do more. I love visiting NYC and do so whenever time allows. However, I love living in the "valley", where I was born, raised, went to school and have worked my entire life. Although I am not averse to dating women, trans, etc., I have not done so in the past and can't comment on whether I have a preference to anything other than men at this point. I would not out the possibility however, if I found myself attracted to someone of a different identity or sexual preference.
Happy Terrian, evolving towards more eco-social responsibility, a translator by profession, am looking for a man with similar views, to share life, dreams and deeds.
Things can still be reversed, improved through a plant-based diet, with certain rebalance and healing effects. Toxic, cancerigen industrialized food must be avoided, replaced with bio vegetables, seeds and fruits with proven biochemical qualities. Avoid what is harmful!

Both reports issue scathing indictments of U.S. and global regulatory systems that collude with chemical companies to hide the truth from the public, while they fill their coffers with ill-gotten profits." Progresses will be seen gradually. Take it easy! Lots of health and happiness!
HI! Traveling is my passion (have been to over 25 different countries). I like to laugh, dance and take long walks on the beach. Watching paint dry would be fun with the Your intelligence, quick wit and playfulness multiplies your attractiveness to me. We need to live/work relatively near each other so we can see each other regularly. You'll find that you can always count on me and know that I'll always have your back. Originally from Detroit, I'm a successful attorney and was a prosecutor for 20 years. I'm currently heading into new legal territory. On the side I combine my legal and real estate licenses as "Your Attorney Real Estate Agent." I donate time to ASU law school judging various competitions. I'm allergic to cats. I'm looking for six simple attributes in my companion (in no particular order) and to be read with a sense of humor (because if you don't have one you're already in the hole): 1. Brain in head 2. Considerate 3. Sense of humor 4. Sports tolerant (I'm not a fanatic but I like to follow my teams and there are only a handful of games I must watch each year) 5. A social conscience 6. Attractive (to me of course, on the thinner side) Wish list: If you can even name a comedian (living) you get extra points :) If you're interested, please reach out, even if you're shy. I'll take it from there :)
That's wonderful! Congratulations!
Athiest Humanist. Married with two daughters. Consider myself Liberal poltically. Likes: Good wine, great food, good company and intelligent conversation. I love all most types of music, but if I had to choose one type of music it would be classical music. My favourite composers from the old school would be Bach and Mozart. I also like contemporary composers like Ennio Morricone and may others too. I also love Baroque style classical choral music. I like to listen to Andrea Bocelli a lot, especially when cooking for some reason.. Also love all the Crooners Sinatra..Bublé etc. Love animals and have not given up on humanity yet either. I am interested in history, literature, science and politics. My favourite food is Thai cuisine. I like movies as long as they are good, too many trash movies being churned out these days, so although occasionally I have been pleasantly surprised. So I have a fondness and respect for older movies that take their time to honour the story and the craft. I like and appreciate people that have manners, and although a confirmed Athiest still respect one element of Christianity that encourages people to treat people the way they would like to be treated. Even a broken clock is right twice a day! I quit smoking about 10 years ago. I am now a vaper, so I have swapped one highly dangerous vice for another in my view much more enjoyable and safe one. Dislikes: Hypocracy, Fanaticism, Polution & Global Warming deniers, Religious Fundamentalism, Cruelty to Any Humans or Animals. Trophy Hunters. Trump and his Diciples. Favourite People both living and dead: Spike Milligan. Dave Allen. David Attenborough. Christopher Hitchens. Stephen Fry. Richard Dawkins. Peter Ustinov. Bill Hicks. Stephen Hawkins. Erwin Rommell. Carl Sagan. Albert Einstein. John Hurt. John F Kennedy. Morgan Freeman. Lawrence Krauss. Charlie Chaplin. Martin Luther King. Laurel & Hardy. James Randi. Penn & Teller. William Shakespeare. Mahatma Gandhi. Emily Dickinson. Anthony Hopkins. JRR Tolkien. Mozart. Charles Darwin. Richard Gielgud. Woody Allen. J S Bach. Alan Turing. Charles Dickens. Rosa Parks. Oscar Wilde. Claus Von Stauffenberg. Michael Collins. Stephen King. Nelson Mandela. Robert Frost. Barak Obama. Ruby Wax. There are so many more inspiring and great Human beings... But these are but a few that appeal to me.

Hello all! I am looking for new friends, as well as being open to the possibility of dating or eventually a relationship. I live in a tiny cow town named Enumclaw. My family, which includes my animals, is the most important thing to me. I am open to new ideas and I actually enjoy learning about different religions/beliefs, but I don't care for people who push those beliefs on others. I find the similarities fascinating, while thinking its a bit silly that they can't get along. If you are up for a chat, say hi. I look forward to making new friends!
i just recently left a three year relationship with a fellow who was like this probably 98% of the time. in three years, i only saw him get angry enough to show it once, and heard about and saw the aftermath of another episode only once. both times he was drunk. he went from almost catatonic to violent in seconds. when i was in labor with our son, he sat in a chair across the room and messaged people on his phone only glancing up a few time. he spends time with our son, but never engages him much more than a hello and then he turns on a tablet for him and gets back on his phone. eventually found out he had been sleeping with a few of my friends who live in my apartments. one was my best friend of 15 years. when i confronted him about it, he let me say what i had to say, which started out pretty calm but ended up kinda loud (i have a temper) and then just sat there. i eventually asked him why. i had told him from the very beginning that if he didnt want the same thing as i did in the relationship to please just say so, then we could be cool, we could go our separate ways, still be friends, co-parent, no worries. he never gave me a very good answer. the best i got was he figured i knew about it already, and since i hadnt mentioned it, he figured it was no big deal. which would have been fine if we hadnt already sat down and both laid out on the table what we wanted, what we were ok with, and what was grounds for a break up. anyhow, sorry thats so long, ill try to hurry this up a bit. in answer to your question of how do i deal with it, well for one, i guess i cant say i have no regrets, but im still glad i met him, if only because of our son. i probably should have left sooner tho. but you wanna know how ive been dealing with it? i gave myself 3 days, maybe a week, to mope and cry and say as many awful things as i could think of, not to him, but to myself or a close friend. then i made some mental lists. first i named off everything i could think of that sucked in my life at that moment. then the next list was for things that i could do to improve these crappy parts of my life, my health, my living situation, my finances, especially with a new baby. i came up with at least one solution to each problem, some of them depended on how well the other ones went, but i had a clear list of goals, all leading up to a big goal, moving away from this dreadful apartment complex. this took a long time to write, and it took even longer to plan out. it was late at night when i finished. i rewarded myself with a snack, went to bed, and as soon as i woke up, i started making calls. i got things started, and havent stopped since. it was so monumentally hard at first. but you keep going. you get up every day and find a way to improve yourself. eventually you think more about how to make things right with you, instead of always thinking about what went wrong with them. also, one of my goals i set that i think could apply to your situation, was to make sure you dont get lost in your head, go out, even if you have no destination, talk to people, see old friends, make new ones, but keep yourself busy. um ok, sorry again this was so long, but i hope you can maybe find something in it you can use.
Born and raised in Charlotte,NC. Pretty much a free thinker. I questioned religion at the ripe age of about 9 or 10. It just wasn’t my thing to believe in something that is installed out of fear. Anyway......I am a dog lover,plumber,musician,and a person who practices a heathy lifestyle. I am always active...it keeps the old age away,lol. Hopefully I can find some people who feels the same on this site.
Please feel free to follow or PM me for whatever non nefarious reason you wish. Looking to meet interesting, quirky people for lively discussion. No tinkers, pests, dullards, damaged goods or needy persons. Toilet humour preferred but not essential. No dick pics or marriage proposals without prior arrangement. On a serious note I enjoy lively discussion with all political persuasions and beliefs but I don't engage with extremists. If you feel compelled to make arguments by posting questionable memes, videos or articles and unable to articulate your own ideas then please move on. I block anyone who blindly re-posts hate material, including EDL, National Front, Britain First, Fox etc without a narrative or serious intention to discuss. Please do not take everyg I post literally and then PM me to tell me I'm evil. I already know this. If you have a wildly different sense of humour (or none at all) then we're probably not going to hit it off anyway.
Ask this genius.

Republican Atheists was founded in 2017. The organization is for those who identify as Atheist, Agnostic, Secular and related and are registered Republicans or take interest in the Republican Party.
Not all atheists view religion as top priority to challenge. Many atheists are concerned about other issues such as health care, abortion, education, foreign affairs, military, etc. which will lead them to associate with anyone who supports their stances on those issues, even if the person is religious. This is why some atheist groups have participated in events that include religious groups - they share similar values.
I'm a creative type. I work as a professional sculptor and scenic artist for film, television and theme parks. I am super creative and I love to build and work with my hands. I can build basically anythng out of Styrofoam, so that's what I do. I occasionally have to travel for work and sometimes work crazy hours, because of this my location is flexible. I can cook and bake and I tend to eat very healthy organic food and meals. I am intelligent, single, very liberal, super easy going and kind. I love art, activism, nature, vintage items and people, recycling, gardening. plants, animals, camping, concerts, music, and travel. I dislike Trump and have little to no interest in Republicans, Conservatives, and believers. I am bored easily with small talk, one word messages, and members looking for hookups. I'm hardly ever serious while posting here and gravitate towards others who display a twisted sense of humor. I'm here to have fun, make friends and learn from others. If you are an asshole to me, or a general dick on the site, regardless of gender, Idgaf who you are I will block you. I live with a couple dogs and cats and just adore other pet people so if you also love dogs that's a huge plus. I identify as Sapiosexual. I'm looking for a partner, boyfriend or even friends. I'd like to connect emotionally with a man who is also creative, has skills and works with his hands, one who shares my political views, my interests, and my values. This is very important to me. I'm open to dating men and making new friends both male and female. I'm very happy to be here with like-minded people and grateful that this site exists. Xoxo.
Thank you, very informative! (L)

It takes time for that circumstance that will solve your problem to arise. I spent 3 and half years looking before I solved the problem and found my current job. I was partially employed in alternative jobs but not a full time salaried employee during that time.
