Sometimes, in bars, tipsy women find me adorable. The way some people love those little bottles of Tobasco restaurants give you. For the most part, I go through life pretty anonymously, slipping in and out of grocery stores and bars without being noticed. I believe I'm part Hobbit, given my height and ability to go unnoticed. Me: understandably dateless You: probably don't exist
A stranger is a stranger you haven't met.
Hey there. I am here to read and comment occasionally as I see fit. Raised Catholic, but now atheist, I am a single mom raising a teenage daughter to think and reason and question things for herself. I often feel lonely, so this is a wonderful forum to visit and feel a connection with others. It would be great to meet people for discussions or activities.
Grilled cheese and tomato soup Almost anything in the crock pot- chili, soup, stew... Hot cocoa Warm brownies mmmmm
I am 30 years old, I have a beautiful daughter who will be 3 soon. I am an atheist. I am not good at bios. Wanna know more hit me up.
I am a pragmatist. Not optimistic nor pessimistic. I just really try to be in the real. I am a generally happy person. I love what I do. I am a statistician and see patterns in data. I also like sci-fi that makes you think and watching thought provoking films in general. In my opinion, British comedy is so much better than American but everyone is entitled to their own tastes. Such fun! I like to read and love the theatre. I love cycling and am getting into rowing albeit indoors. I also like to do things with my hands because my day job is so much work in my head. I have some really great friends and fabulous kids but it is always nice to meet new people. I am left of liberal and have a public health background. I like to be challenged to learn new things and can update my beliefs with new information. But, I really want to see the data.
I have a Ph.D. in history, read multiple languages, and have traveled often. I am an educator and an author. This site seems like an excellent place for someone who loves to engage with ideas without settling for conventions and conventional ideas.
I am an ambivert. Or an introvert with the ability to exhibit extroverted energy selectively. INTP / ENFJ I love to laugh ! Don't you ?
If it's the first time we're out and about or the first time it's done, I would personally let it slide. You never know what insecurities they might be dealing with. Maybe they ran late and forgot deodorant or blah blah blah. But if it's a constant thing. I would say something after the second or third time, at the end of the date.
I am a freelance artist/designer, movie nerd, music lover, book reader, and all around goofball. I was blessed and baptized as an infant, raised jewish, and went to a religious high school - I feel those all kind of cancelled each other out to make me the happy atheist I am today. I'm not the best at describing myself...
There are too many!
Life is what you make it. No truer words have been said, but sometimes circumstances can be quite the obstacle. The trauma of abuse is pervasive and cunning. Often times more than can be bared. For those of you who have lived with it, you have my sympathy and respect. This is not a test, it's all we have, and it's called life. I'm tired of lies and manipulation games and am breaking free from the bondage of abuse. Through it all, I'm just looking for low stress, conversations and wine.
Sometimes a little, sometimes a lot. But emails are awful too. Most of them i write at least 4 revisions before I send them.
Liberal. DIYer. Reader. Crafter. Gardener. Traveler. Always have projects, but take time for loved ones and friends. Kinda, sorta retired. Don't know how long that will last, but for the moment we will see how it goes. Cat Mom. I like dogs, and hope to have one again one day. Cats are my fur kids. I hope I am always kind (heavy traffic doesn't count... well, shouldn't) I have a good sense of humor and sense of what matters. I am very protective of those I care for. Have lived all over the US and overseas as well, 23 moves in my life. After 19 moves I ended up 50 miles from where I was born, I've lived in Omaha for 13 years. Mostly vegetarian but not militant about it or perfect. 420 friendly. Drinks sometimes. Chocoholic. They told me when I had a baby that my heart would be walking outside of my body, and that was pretty much true. Then I became a grandmother, and I learned that love had more depths than I ever dreamed. I don't plan to ever move away from the grandbabies. All my kids are within 25 miles. Not interested in long distance. I am looking for a long term relationship, partner in crime and travel, someone to ride off into the sunset with.
How cool! Do they taste like regular tomatoes?
Individual as in don't really subscribe to groups but instead assess situations and people on their merits. Like a good reasoned and logical debate. Decided long ago doctrine retards people's thinking process, so avoid arguing with theists as there is no point trying to reason with the retarded (not their fault, don't say retarded to be nasty. Just stating fact as I see it. Plus the retardant can be removed, the retarded's belief/adherence to whatever doctrine). Big believer in freedom of belief, no thought police. Especially immature/ developing minds aka kids. Kids should not be taught what and how to believe. Hate religion for this reason only. Pity those who have been indoctrinated, many from birth. It is not their fault. Believe what you will. Live and learn from experience rather than learn only from being taught. Cherish the moment as it's the only time you are really alive.
Single father to an amazing 4-year-old daughter. Born and raised in N.Y. Living in Ohio. Music lover, into reading, learning, growing, tea parties and arts and crafts with my little one.
Haha, foularious!! I love it!
Hi everyone, I really appreciate your independent thinking and welcome your thoughts. It is refreshing to be on a site with critically thinking folks regardless if I agree with your views I can respect that they are yours. Wellness everyone, Mark
I’m here in NC as well. Glad you are safe.
I'm an artist and curator in Katy, TX. I also work in Houston and the surrounding area. I'm outgoing, love to travel, artistic by nature and love most types of music and shows. I'm vegetarian and like to cook. I have a kitten or I should say he has me. Mother and grandmother. Time to update! I have cancer. But I still want a forever relationship. So I'm working the bucket list. No liars and cheats. I've had my fill of that bullshit and refuse to do it again. I'm sure there might be a few people on here that are religious but I definitely am not. Don't try that crap with me. I'm living for the now. I couldn't care less about what you believe. i know who I am. Not to sound angry or anything but there are those who think they can use another person. I'm not that person. I just had to put it up front.
I have a small horse farm with a couple of retired horses, a happy dog, a noisy parrot, lazy chickens and a few beehives. I'm very liberal in my thinking and voting. Absolutely non-religious, but very principled. I'm healthy and feel much younger than my years. I'm seeking the company of a partner that is also youthful in spirit and physically active. I enjoy exploring the outdoors, spontaneous adventures, picnics, bonfires, hanging with friends, canoeing, movies and local breweries. Mostly I enjoy spending quiet times at home, cooking, puttering about and just being with a good friend or lover.
When I was in the 4th grade, Sister Dorothy told my catechism class that people who don't attend mass will go to hell. My father didn't attend mass, and I knew that he was not destined for hell. So, I did what any intelligent, empowered 4th grader would do. I told her she was wrong. It was a sunny, Spring, Monday afternoon, and I'll never forget it. I lived in a small Catholic community, and while that moment in the 4th grade turned me off of the church, I still considered myself Catholic. I suppose you could say I was 'culturally Catholic.' That lasted until my mid-twenties. I was living in Southern California when the Pope came to Los Angeles in 1987. He held mass at the Coliseum, and his entire 'speech' was printed in the LA Times. I remember reading every word looking for confirmation that Sister Dorothy had it all wrong. He didn't. Somewhere in the speech he said that it was impossible to be a cafeteria Catholic. It was either all or nothing. In that case, I was definitely not Catholic. That quickly led me to question whether or not I was Christian. Nope. Definitely not Christian. What about the God of Abraham? No. That guy was definitely an ass. For a very long time I simply considered myself 'non-religious.' It took some time before I figured out that I am actually atheist. I will save that story for another time.... Fast forward to present day: I am a high school math teacher with 34 years in the classroom. I love what I do, and at the same time, I look forward to retiring in a few years. I have friends, hobbies, and passions which keep my life fresh and enjoyable. I have strategically placed friends all over the word at destination locations (ok, that's a joke, kind of), and I enjoy traveling when the time and funds allow. All in all, I have a pretty good life. I have no trouble being single, but it would be nice to meet that special someone to share adventures with .
Here to meet friends, if I happen to meet someone here for a relationship that would be great! I'm just having fun!
I saw it Friday night and I agree! Better than what I thought!
Working full time while obtaining a second - hopefully more practical - degree. I also began training at an MMA gym again recently. That being said I am rather busy but feel I still have time to meet someone new. I like getting to know someone before dating is viable. Looking for qualities that reflect my own: independent, empathetic, and conscientious.
Or maybe those could be great conversations to have. I'm sure they may know a lot that they could share as well
Single father of 3 children; 1 each in high school, middle school, and elementary school. I run an afterschool childcare program at an elementary school. Mostly just surviving from day to day.
Well I'm here chat with people and get a number of different perspectives from people from all over the place
I would definitely hard pass on that i think. Maybe once if i was asked to see how good your technique was and see if i like it bit as of right now i have never had a goid experience with teeth lol
I am originally from the Chicago area and now live in Tucson. I love playing and writing music, very few things I would rather do and then it's conditional. I am a fan of all artistic endeavors but I concentrate on music. I have a job I enjoy, i find it fulfilling. I am an animal lover but do not currently have any pets. I am of the mindset that no one ever has to many friends and look forward to making more here. I'm something of a sapiophile and I would be interested in meeting like minded women.
I love this band, they had all the angst of a punk band.
I suppose I should write something here... I am fun, funny, witty, sometimes sarcastic. I am also kind, compassionate, empathic and am liberal in my outlook on life. I am married with teenagers but am also polyamorous, so I'm open to the possibility of finding another localish partner if it is the right fit. I'm pretty much an open book so you can ask me anything. :-)
Hell no!! The image in my head is bad enough!!
I was raised in a very religious family with my father being a Methodist minister and my mother raised Southern Baptist. Never could wrap my mind around all beliefs of the christian faith. As I got older and studied history pertaining to the origins and manipulations of the bible any faith about what had been drilled into me faded away. I meet a very special person that introduced me to the pagan beliefs (which I have been reading about) that started opening my mind to a new world. I stumbled across this website and ready to learn about my new world.....be gentle. Hope to find new friends that I can learn from and maybe reenergize my beliefs in a totally different way.
I've learned alot of lessons!!!! Maybe I'm not learning from them.
Fan of the overlooked, despised and forgotten. Just a possum in love with the world.https://youtu.be/jpSWj0qrVoE
Too much to type. Mother, sister, daughter, ex. I am the only sane person in a difficult family. I am an avid consumer of media. I love non-fiction science books, Hannibal, and The Office. "I just want to go home and be all normal!" - Invader Zim
Alien. Also, Event Horizon, Galaxy Quest, Aliens....so many! The Expanse is a great TV show too.
