When one door closes our optimism suggests another one opens. Better tomorrows than yesterdays. Enjoy...well here we are on the other side of midnight and what's the difference besides a calendar on the wall? A hat full of stars and promises in my shoes. "It's opener out there in the wide open air." And ever after? This story is being written on paper made from clouds. I became a first time parent later in life. Some people seem to think that older folks have matured but I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up. Older seems to be the logical conclusion. Note that my search radius is more of an arc that radiates north towards my son. He lives 90 miles North-northeast. I'm just willing to move closer to mine if that brings me closer to you. But what if, just supposing, we're hoping it goes well and relocating our households isn't part of the plan? I'm not crazy about spending 20 hours a month commuting to work and back but it's what we do...for money. For love or for really, really (no really) *like* each other then what is a bridge too far? 20, 40, 100 miles? Consider my son: he is not a knee scrap away and this parent missing simple events is an accumulation of loss. No LDRelationships by choice. Cat person who imposes a 2 cat max per me. Two hands-two cats. Dog people understand that a dog is a family member not an accessory or a hobby. I'm a dog person who doesn't have a dog...it's simply not fair to the dog. Motorcycles are okay (4 of them) but I love the comfort of 4/4/4: 4 wheels, 4 doors and 4 real conversations (heat when it's cold, air-conditioning when its ~hot~ is nice too)! Steampunk and Nerf wars and live theater. Hiking and being gawd-awful lazy at times. I have gone camping with my son a few times this year. Here's the thing: I can't stand (and scarcely want to sit down in) portapottys. I'd rather dig my own hole than use them. So if it's a camping trip then flush toilets and running water nearby. NASCAR/racing of any sort? I took my 9 year old son (approaching 14) to motocross races. After 6-7 heats my son said it's boring (no argument from me). If I miss a Packers game it's mind over matter: I don't mind and it doesn't matter. If they win great! If they lose? What, I'm supposed to get bent out if shape? I don't think so. Barflys and hangovers? Pick one or the other! Just kidding. Now an occasional bar band is fine for a few songs but let the 20-30 year olds close the joint. Classic rock and even more top 100 hits have been playing ad nauseum. Think of any radio friendly artist. Yep! You already know which songs gets played. Those so-called "deep cuts?" Please!! I like what I like in music. New Wave, New Age/electronica, Classical, Punk, Ambient, Alternative as in obscure ~not~ what the music industry labels it...like that. Pull up Pandora, put in William Orbit or Parov Stelar or Beats Antique. I'll probably like what you listen to but won't insist that you listen to, for example, Koyannisqatsi by Philip Glass. There's always the section about family and friends. When you have folks that help create a more perfect world around each other it's important to maintain those healthy relationships. Toxic people...not so much. There's a line in a poem that goes: "Maybe it's better to forget." Exclaimer: If meeting you tomorrow is about you today then recent photos are a must. Fair is fair. Pictures that were new five or six years ago are lovely and our inner eye tends to see ourselves that way but here's the thing: If we don't look better than our worst photos then what's the point? Sure I've posted an old photo: One. Politics...I stand firm as a liberal. Writing is not a substitute for actual conversation.
Expect a lot of M.A.S. posturing. Male Answer Syndrome Real Men (TM) can't let any situation remain unanswered. Real Men (TM) tend to take what little Real Men (TM) know and expound to infinity and beyond. Men who are not Real Men (TM) are derided for not knowing what the answer(s) could be. Sexism? Male entitlement? Is that missing leg from the Y chromosome dangling between the legs? I don't have a clue.
Hello and welcome. Thought I'd stop by and give this a try before going back to the more traditional sites for meeting people. For better or worse all my photos are current, limited editions, and obviously taken on the same day. Anyway back to the bio, never married with no children. And no, never incarcerated or institutionalized. I'm 5 ft. 7 in., 167 lbs., thinning hair, 2 cats, 1 dog, 1 home. Same employer since 2003. I'm originally from the Bay Area and my interests are Baseball, the wonderful world of Pop Culture, Rock Music (all genres), Socially liberal causes and of course, animals. Wow! Now that was one helluva sales job I must say.
What's the average amount of time you spend watching cat video threads on YouTube?
I'm a down-to-Earth, open-minded woman looking for friends (or a relationship) with those who share my views and values. I'm a helping professional and care deeply for the people I serve. My empathy for others runs deep, which is both a positive and a negative depending on how you look at it. Although I'm spiritual I'm accepting of all. I don't care for religion and the control that it has over people. I follow my heart but lead with my head. I'm a critical thinker and a passionate person. An introvert in every sense. INFJ. My spiritual beliefs are mine and I don't expect others to believe the same. I can fully respect your beliefs, and hope you can do the same for me.
My girl Tyler. She's 18 years old.
I want to learn Spanish and anything else hat I don't know.
I don't know, religion has sort of shaped society as we know it.
I'm known on this planet as a human female, my sexual orientation is the same sex. My educational background is agricultural science, astronomy, business in making soy candles and 2 year degree in child developmental education. Here only for friendly conversation.
Confront then block. No one has been rude to me in a post, just in the messanger. Would not take no for an answer.
Greeting to my fellow members on this site. First I would like to thank the creators of this site for doing such a wonderful job and allowing those of us with non religious views to network with like minded people. I was raised in an urban area in New Jersey with Christianity being my parents choice of religion, Even though I grew up in a Christian household I have always had my doubts. I am an introvert that can do well in social climates as well, My hobbies are exercise, aerobics, reading, dancing and hiking, I am very a liberal agnostic and have no desire to debate the existence or non existence of god, Whatever the next man chooses as their belief is their prerogative, Though I am on here primarily for community I am open to meeting a single like minded woman,
A father of one (Daughter) who grew up in CA but lives in Millbrook as a qualified and reputable media personnel, I've actually travelled across Europe and Asia for an atom of flair and business... I trust nature and believe so much in humanity!
Lovely book,had a brief of it

Single mom. Favorite activities are writing, singing, playing the ukulele, biking, camping, reading, and laughing. Laughing is my favorite. I'm shy until the ice is broken. After that, all bets are off! Thanks for visiting.
Just a middle-aged atheist in Jerry Falwell's backyard. I've never been a religious person, though I tried to pick it up a few times. Growing up in deep South Louisiana I was surrounded by religies, so I thought something was wrong with me. I just never could make myself believe. I'm a retired Air Force guy, and I fully retired from my career as a physician assistant three years ago. Now I travel sometimes, do a little photography, and pretty much do whatever I want (as long as it's not expensive!). I've recently switched to a WFPB diet for better health.
Happy atheist with passions for science and cosmology :)
Well, this helps me: first, everything and everyone will die someday and I'm not the only one. Even the Sun will die. In fact, if someone told me that I'd never die,then I'd be concerned. Second, before I was born, I was dead for a really long time (13 billion years or so), yet I don't recall anything dreadful happening to me. Hope this helps you :P
More snippets of info. First, call me Bev. Greatly influenced by sci fi, alternate ways of viewing society. (2/26-addition), easy water kayaking ROCKS! Enjoy/ed all forms of music, even as a young teen (barring shrill or whiny. They hurt my ears). , classical. Especially classical. .. + some C&W, some regae (sic?, ) some heavy metal, a lot of folk, musicals, love musicals, AND naturally, the popular music of my era, (timeless, some of it) like the protest songs. Shy, as a kid and teen, I got better, as I got older ( PS, am not done getting better, yet) raised children, eventually worked, went back to school, worked more interesting jobs, then retired. My 2 x's were poor choices on my part, and aren't any part of my life. Since retiring, I've been a little directionless, but am working in different ways to accomplish some good things in whatever time I have. I've been in a couple plays now, and love acting!!! I hate labels. I think that whenever you label yourself you LIMIT yourself. With that said, tho, we must use some words to indicate our identities. So. Zen-ish, tending toward a belief in (if anything) a paganistic view that (perhaps) the intrinsic energy in EVERYTHING, could be something we humans don't and CANNOT understand. Or not.... Moot point. I'm heavier than I want, have a tendency to hog a soapbox, or play devil's advocate, not any huge ambitions.... Perhaps I'm open-minded to an extreme, because reading about quantum science allows me to question our perceived reality. Hence, I'll play with tarot cards, not take them too seriously, and in my next breath, scoff at others doing equally inane things. Love board games, dice, card games, Morrowind/Elder Scrolls, thinking, reading, watching/reading about unanswered stuff from the past. I love people, socializing, talking about ideas. I also NEED alone time. I've been mostly on my own for many years, and am fine, don't need anyone to micro manage, "protect", etc. Disclaimer time. My picture doesn't show wrinkles much thankfully, and is with a bit of makeup on the e. Hey, I'm 66, deal. I thought about what others showed of their lives, and figured I should be a bit more open about mine, so I'm adding more pix of my living space, (after it's picked up, of course. I have no doubt I'll add more here eventually. Brace yourselves. And it's STILL my rant, and I'm stickin' to it. Original post It's difficult to find compatible friends/whatever anywhere, so please, let's read profiles. Altho' I do not follow or like religions, I have found worthwhile thoughts in the Zen area. Conventional thinking rarely influences me, so I can be misunderstood. Ask if I am not clear. Kindness and and truth matter. And I have no desire to have a bickering relationship of any kind. FYI, I've no wealth to speak of, no desire to be a green card vendor, nor am I an easy mark for any unscrupulous person. I look forward to speaking to any of you who've made it this far!!!! This is my rant, and I'm stickin' to it!!!
Aboriginals, from whatever area, are ignored, After all, to have worthwhile gods, you can't be one with nature, can you?
Tall, burly, 50/50 sweet to salty ratio. Midwestern born and raised. I have a propensity towards snarkiness, sarcasm, satire, clownishness and inappropriate commentary. I love a hearty IPA and a peaty scotch. I am more than handy in the kitchen and enjoy cooking for people I care about. I tend to cook and eat on the spicier side of the food spectrum. Television isn't something that occupies much of my time, but I have been known to binge on a few shows now and then. Most recently, Sneaky Pete, Flint Town and the reboot of The Tick have eaten up some of my life. I work for a sizeable steel processing corporation in a tiny town in rural mid-Michigan on the midnight shift. As would be expected, this makes for a crappy dating situation, so I am happy to have been introduced to Agnostic.com. I haven't found anyone close by, but I am looking to possibly relocate sometime in the next year. Trying to promote myself online isn't exactly my passion in life, so if you want to know something else about me, send me a message. I'm honest and real to a fault.
Moved to Peterborough where I don't know anybody so I could be nearer my son, don't know anyone here and it's pretty lonely, hope some likeminded people in the world might make it easier, say Hi

Wow, pretty excited to see a social place to find like minded science loving people! 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. I suppose being new to this site I’ll call this Bio a “work in progress” while I try and figure out what exactly to put here. But for now I’m enjoying exploring all this site has to offer :)
Lol, a co-worker and I were engaged in conversation about dating and I dropped the “A” word, agnostic. After his initial Christian inspired shock he asked me to reconsider if I wanted to find someone because “A belief in a higher being than themselves helps men keep their ego in check so that they can be better people and thus treat women better and with more respect, thus help you find a good guy.” Long story short uughhh.
I am a rational left-leaning nerd who is also somewhat of an adventurer. My interests are numerous and varied. I enjoy outdoorsy pursuits like hiking, cycling, and mountain biking, and indoorsy pursuits like movies, books, and live theater. I have three rescue dogs and three wonderful grown kids, no grands. I don't drink, smoke, or use drugs. . I desire a caring and committed relationship with someone who is spontaneous and romantic (like me!). I've had disappointments but I'm not jaded. I still believe my true love is out there somewhere. Obviously closer geographically is better, but I won't rule out a good guy just because of distance. . No Trumpsters, no hookups, no poly and/or "open marriage" men, and no Believers. Seriously, NO! I do not suffer fools gladly, so read my profile (it's not *that* long) before you message if you want me to respond.
Hair disasters- I've certainly had them. I took my dad to lunch right after going "auburn". I thought my hair turned out okay...until Dad proceeded to ask the waitress, the busboy, and a random couple walking by, "Doesn't my daughter look exactly like Carrot Top?". Gee, thanks Dad!!
