Hi everyone! I'm a pretty down to earth kinda guy. I've noticed lately that I'm a mix of 3 different things. I'm a little skeptic, Spiritual & a freethinker. A few years ago I started a journey with a nonreligious group. But they were Spiritual. The Laws of the Universe kinda stuff & I love it. Through my connections I got to do a Warrior weekend with the Mankind project & it was incredible! My eyes were opened to a whole new me. Since then I've been able to feel energies & vibrations that I've never felt. Plus feeling energy from other people. I'm still trying to learn how to tap into it a little bit better. It's made me change the way I think & I love the man who I'm becoming today.
Ooh! There you are!! It's been awhile, but I'm so excited I found you! Happy 4th of July!!
I'm an ENFJ-T, and graduate student at a local college. Science is life! If you find a woman with a brain, and a mouth to back it up, attractive, here I am. Remember, the only place I want to be submissive, is in the boudoir. :) I'm ambitious and driven, and won't settle. I wouldn't want you to either. I'm originally from Washington State. Moved to Arkansas in 2004. I'm hoping to move closer to an area with more atheists. Hopefully this will happen sooner than later. Please message me if you would like to chat. ;) https://youtu.be/jYO9Knn0yVE "Lay all your troubles down."
I'm in search of a good friend to collaborate on two pieces I want to write. Writing skills, imagination, politically left, intelligent and near Citrus County Fl. are important. One is a politically motivated SA/Proposal.... The second is a fiction novel/screenplay about a hidden, unknown society living amongst us...... Anyone interested ?
Good natured man with a sense of humor that's quick and irrelevant. I'm decently smart and love to talk about nothing and everything. I'm very casual, open minded, and accepting of people the way they are - if you're comfortable with who you are I'm comfortable with you. I've been told (by non family members) that I'm fun to be around, hilarious, caring, smart (with the occasional ass added), and a genuinely good person. List of bad things I've been called available upon request in PDF format. I love listening to music live and canned and love to dance - just not with a lot of other people watching - you'll see if you sign the "I won't laugh in your face" form before the music starts. I keep up with what's happening in the world and enjoy discussing what's going on, and I'm fascinated with how things work - people, societies, you name it. There's a lot more to me than can really be put here without writing a novella so if you want to know more go ahead and ask - I only bite upon request. What am I looking for in a woman? I'd have to say smart, likes dogs, has a very good sense of humor and lives close enough that the airport isn't step one on a date (these aren't lines in the sand that can't be crossed, just what I think I want - and I'm wrong quite a bit :) ) . I'm looking for someone to share this wonderful life with simply because life is so much better when it's shared with someone you care about. A bit of a spontaneous streak to complement mine is a must. I'm not what you'd call impulsive, yet there are times when a good idea, event, or opportunity pops up unexpectedly and you just gotta do it. Some of life's best moments can't be planned for, why should we miss them?
Yes, for both reasons before.
I was born in Singapore and live in the UK. I was totally put off religion after spending 10 years at a Catholic convent boarding school; I was confirmed into the Church of England. Twice divorced, I'm enjoying the single life, and getting to know and like myself again. I work part-time from home and part-time at the local College. I've joined this site for community and conversation mainly. I love reading, writing (unpublished and for my own pleasure), photography, art, craft, walking, traveling, listening to music, good food, good conversation and good company; there's nothing better than chilling in good company and talking about everything and nothing. I'd describe myself as an introvert, I do have my extrovert moments but they are fleeting and rare, brave, strong, caring, passionate, independent and adventurous. The following is the story behind my nickname, taken from my musings on walking the Camino de Santiago and wilderness experiences in South Africa. **On Ladybirds and Keymaidens** I was still with Aidan and we had left Burgos early that morning; it was Day 15 of our Camino and Day 1 on the Meseta, the flat plains on the central Spanish plateau between Burgos and Astorga. It is one of the hardest stages of the Camino as there is little shade and villages are few and far between, which means water and food stops are scarce, so you have to carry supplies with you, just in case. I started well and the first nine kilometres flew by, but as we passed through Tarjados I really started to feel it in a bad way. My knees, back and shoulders all ached and my energy just seemed to ebb away. We had planned to finish at Hortanas that day but it wasn’t in me to do another ten kilometres so I stopped in a small village called Hornillos del Camino; Aidan chose to stop too despite me telling her to go on and that I’d catch up with her along the way. So, we both checked in at the albergue next to the church in the centre of the village and spent the afternoon sitting in the sun drinking cerveza, chatting with fellow pilgrims and playing guess the colour of the tractor. We’d noticed that every other vehicle that passed through the village was a tractor, usually coloured red, green or yellow, so as you can imagine the game was very simple, but very funny and that combined with the good company, the warm sun and alcohol my aches and pains were soon forgotten. Budu, a German guy we’d bumped into on and off along the way was there and a couple of Swedes called Per and Sylvia. During the course of the conversation Per told us that he was a Shaman; he even had a business card. He’d spotted the ladybird tattoo on my foot, which amazed me as most people don’t see it because it’s so small and badly done, it's often mistaken for a mole or birth mark. He also noticed the silver Viking key which I was wearing on a leather thong around my neck. My sister had given it to me just before I left home, she had bought it from a Norwegian silversmith at a medieval festival, who had told her that it symbolised female strength and independence. Per went on to tell me that the Swedish word for ladybird is ‘nyckelpiga’ which actually translates as ‘key maid’. I was fascinated and delighted with the connection and Per wondered if I had been aware of it. Of course, I hadn’t; I’d had the tattoo done about twenty years before my sister gave me the key, but I found it made me smile inside and made the key, which was already very precious to me, even more so. Since then I’ve often wondered whether in my over tired, tipsy state I’d misheard or misinterpreted what Per said, but I checked recently and it’s true. Ladybirds are Key Maids in Sweden.
I've been on two wilderness trails in South Africa. Each time I spent a week in the bush with a small group including a Trail Guide and a Tracker. We slept around a camp fire under the stars; no canvas, set up camp and cooked as a group. They were incredible, leveling, life changing experiences. Just 'being', no phones or watches to distract us, observing and learning about the flora and fauna, and enjoying the company of like minded people was a privilege. I also walked the Camino de Santiago in 2006 and the Camino Fisterre in 2007. No camping involved; I stayed in the Alberges, but the experience of walking with time to think and meditate was amazing; an emotional, mental and physical challenge but worth every step, blister and tear.
I'm a scientist and non-believer of more than thirty years standing. Despite this I still think humans need belong something that transcends themselves and I choose our lovely blue planet. I love escape her wild places - that is a true spiritual experience! As you might have guessed, if I believed in a god She would be female. Not here for dating but willing converse on any subject. INTP if that matters. Things I'm into: cooking, home brew, travel, wine, whisky, reading sci-fi and fantasy, running, daydreaming. Can't smile in selfies.
There's not much interesting to say about myself really. I'm a mom to 2 great kids. I work full time and love my job. I'm recently divorced but separated for over two years. I'm very laid back and easy going. I would love to meet the man of my dreams and live happily ever after but I'm fairly certain that won't be happening for me. I've been very unlucky in love. I'm content with finding some cool new friends too.
To sum it all up...

If you want to know something, ask me. I might answer, I might not.
Depends on the context. The word itself doesn't bother me at all.
Just an average guy who took the red pill and unplugged and who is trying to make it through this life a day at a time. Since age and death are chasing me I run (5k, 10k, 15k, 1/2 marathons) as much as I can. Decided while I may not be able to outrun them I won’t make it easy for ‘em. They will eventually catch me but they will have to work for it.
I love politics, movies, music, cooking and growing things. I write poetry and make my own soap.
They want to change you… they are on a mission! 😆😆
I am a very open person just looking for someone to spend time with movies dinner ride bikes walks and sometimes just hang out
I like how it is most men who tell women what they should be doing with there bodies
I came here to be reminded that I'm not "damaged goods" in the social realm being that I'm an Atheist bound by logic and reason. Also, since I've had a vasectomy I've felt more alienated in the dating world so I hope to find my niche here. Age is but a number and time is a construct. The present, you, here, and life is now. I prefer the face to face interactions of others rather than a monitor. It's harder to fake being genuine there.

Just like many people music is a big part of my every day life. I've experienced many generations of music through many genres. I typically lean towards high energy, heavy music. Whether that comes in the form of metal, hip hop, techno/edm/dubstep, and even orchestra. Typically go through phases of each. Currently its hip hop. I love suggestion for music so please feel free with just about anything. Country is forbidden zone for me. Staples: Red Hot Chilli Peppers, System of a Down, Avenged Sevenfold, Born of Osiris. August Burns Red, The Rolling Stones, Veil of Maya, Token, Hopsin, Futuristic, Cage the Elephant, The Offspring, Modest Mouse, Devil Wears Prada, The White Stripes, Mindless Self Indulgence, The Gorillaz, and basically every 80s-90s 1 hit wonder.

I don't appreciate the tone this has towards atheism. Atheists aren't asserting anything. Atheism isn't a belief that people choose or dont choose. It is simply the lack of belief. If it wasn't for religion dominating the world since the dawn of time we wouldn't even need a label to describe it. Just as there isn't a label for nonbelievers in Santa, the tooth fairy, or Thor, simply they are just people that have grown away from believing unsupported claims. I despise that we must be placed in a group as opposed to just existing without the imposition of religion, but it is the unfortunate truth of our society. There is no "missed mark" of atheism. It isn't a counterculture nor a movement. We all ascribe to many movements and cultures as atheists, but atheism isn't one.

I aspire to a life of sun, water, laughter and travels. Of always learning, loving and growing. I love to imagine and create ... to realize dreams - be they my own or those of the ones I love. I love trying new things and meeting new people - and I love cozy cuddly rituals and quiet nights. I'm here to meet new people and hear new perspectives. If something romantic happens, cool! If not, cool! I value intelligence, logic, and practicality ... playfulness, humor, and adventure. I value honesty, integrity and strength of character ... open-mindedness, kindness and compassion. My grown-up job keeps me financially independent and intellectually challenged. My side job is one of my passions! I am a costumer (I made everything I'm wearing in my full body pics) and jewelry maker. My other passion is my children. I have 3 (one is grown up), and they take up most of my time. Outside of that, I enjoy time with friends, swimming, jogging, rollerskating, gardening, home improvement. Oh ... and roleplaying (live action occasionally, and table top - presently, Marvel, In Nomine, D&D, and Omniverse). I'm tall - 5'10", and curvy. If your thing is small and willowy, I'm not it. I'm fit, but not skinny. I figure that's fair, though - I like big guys, and they know that they don't have to be afraid of breaking me when we wrestle. I love deeply when I do, but you won't be my world and I won't expect to be yours. I figure we're each on our own paths, and we're holding hands as we walk them. I'm not going to walk your path for you or try tell you how to walk it. I'm going cheer you on, and probably ogle you and grope you along the way. *waggles eyebrows*

Hello, all. I came to atheism late in life after a long period of skepticism, finally I decided that without compelling evidence the only rational choice is to be an atheist. If I hear a voice out of a burning bush tomorrow, and can't find any hidden speakers, don't have a brain tumor, etc... well, I would have to re-evaluate my stand I suppose. I'm divorced and a father of one (who doesn't live with me but visits a lot), I'm interested in meeting ladies who share my interests: movies, reading, travel... and I'm open to building new interests. I'm a socially liberal Democrat, regardless of that I own and shoot a number of handguns for sport and defense. I believe we need a more equitable distribution of wealth in our society but we won't get that by rioting and looting big-screen TVs.
I can tell when it's time to take some days off because I'm dreaming about work. I'm at my usual place, but the buildings are different, non-geometric, stairs lead nowhere, and no matter where I go I can't get out. Rooms increase in size to the point I can't even see the far wall... and all the while people are making demands of me. That's just one. There are others... maybe I'll post when I feel up to it. If I could figure out some way to have a *happy* recurring dream.
I'm a 49-year-old single dad to a daughter who is 11 going on 18. I was brought up in an Episcopalian household (baptized, confirmed, even served as an acolyte - mom taught Sunday school and is still very active with the church) but it just never quite clicked with me (I'm an ISTP so logic always wins out). I grew up in TX, moved to the SF Bay Area for grad school and work, and am now back to be near family. Maybe it's just me, but TX seems more religious than ever so it's nice to see a big community of like-minded people here to get to know and hang out with. Just please bear with me because I'm a bit on the shy side but will open up once I get to know you better. Cheers!
I like everyone. I set boundaries because I have I'm pretty focused and that means I'll usually achieve whatever goal I set for myself. I've made mistakes and I've learned from them. Keep going forward, don't look back. (Looks like the liberal Gremlins have been messing with my profile if anything is deleted, as a side note.)

I don't adhere to any particular philosophy except for whatever drives me in that moment. Much like combat even the best made plans disappear once the first shot is fired and the rest is METTC (basically adapt, improvise and overcome and deal with the situation as it comes at you).
