I took the personality type test on a whim. I am type ESTJ-T and it says my role is sentinel. My strategy is social engagement. In my youth I studied to be a Pentecostal minister. It's the worst thing I ever did and it haunted me for years because I dropped away from it until I realized that gods are imaginary. For the first time I have real freedom now. I was married twice and have 2 daughters by the second wife. Later I lived with a woman until she died of heart problems. My last attempt at wedded bliss lasted 12 years and she was a Kenyan woman. We are still friends today. I'm open to meeting women but not into drama or manipulation. My belief is that two people can be themselves and get along fine even if they are not tied at the hip. Talk to each other and share experiences and what makes it all OK is that each of you know who you are coming home to at night. I'm a political activist of sorts, I have designed my own TV antenna, and I'm a self taught computer nerd who watches TV on computer. I watch all my programs and get news from all over the world. I'm also a big talker and if you wanna know something just ask me. I forgot to add that I am ex military. I was 3 years active in Germany in the 1960's. Nurnberg was quite an experience and I was able to travel Europe some.
Absolutely not. There are no such things as holy books.
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 ?
I was literally raised in a Baptist Church (and I mean Sunday morning, Sunday Night, Monday night Boys club, Wednesday night Prayer Meeting. Saturdays I cleaned the church and set up for Sunday for $1.75 an hour. I was immersed - think Baptism. I could quote 1100 bible verses by the time I was 11.) I remember distinctly sitting in the back of the church when I was 12 and thinking as soon as i am old enough, I am out of here. I hold no enmity for true believers because I was surrounded by church families that treated me as one of their own, their parents were my parents. In those days there was a complete separation of Church and State. Churches were not political. But there were too many questions that were not getting answered. I have traveled this country extensively and just moved back to my home state after 40 years. I write stories (whistledownthewinddotorg1.wordpress.com)and am a woefully inept photographer, decent eye but no technical expertise. I take politics seriously. I research my candidates. I've been a Socialist Democrat since the 70's when Zolton Ferency ran for governor of Michigan. I voted for Hillary (one L or two?) because the alternative was too hideous. I take to the streets and march for things I believe in. I'm proud to say that almost every female friend I have donned the pink pussy hat and marched in Washington, Sacramento, Tampa and Atlanta. That one I missed. I won't miss another. I find Narcissist's far more terrifying than the average individual (personal experience). I make a lot of mistakes and I will make a lot more before I leave this Earth. When you are wrong you adjust/learn. Being right only buffs your current mindset. So I take chances. I wear a pillow on my ass and I can throw a decent punch if necessary. If I believe in something with enough conviction, you will find me at the front of the pack. Given our current political nightmare, I am fed up with being nice. I adore Michelle Obama and fully understand her "We go high when they go low" attitude but I am not Michelle Obama. Nice hasn't worked. Why I'm here? Conversation, kinship with like minds, amusement, enlightenment - whatever I can get. I can talk with just about anyone but there are times when a like mind just relaxes me. I didn't come here looking for a dating site but I would be a fool for an interesting woman with a beating heart. I do like being in love. .
Wheres he live? I know some boys here in Detroit.
I’m curious about people. Everyone has a story. It feels best to discover these stories over dinner. Or coffee. My long term goal would be to find like-minded others, for friendship and more.
I live in Salt Lake City. However being on the agnostic side of atheism & (I dislike the term.,.) a gay man. To say the least I'm counterculture. I thought this was a dating site. Haha, And then I found it to fulfill my inquisitive and philosophical side. So, no loss is a loss...
To sum it all up... I’m a Certified Medical Assistant, Movie Enthusiasts, Dc/Marvel fan, Minimalist, Geek, Coffee Addicted (ha), Hammocker, Camper, Vanlife, former Boy Scout Leader, former mobile Disc Jockey,Technology Enthusiasts, 1st Degree Black Belt in TKD, Photographer, Videographer, & I am a Youtuber - Reactor & Vlogger. AND I’M SINGLE. (Insert laughter here!) Way tooo many interests & hobbies to list in this box.
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.
I was born in SLC. My father was a jack Mormon, but my mother was a Congregationalist. I was never impresssed with religion and when I started studying philosophy I found out why. I attended Westminster college and the university of Utah and studied psychology, sociology, anthropology and philosophy. I joined the navy at 27 and spent twenty years working as a power tech. In the process I finished 2 degrees in math and philosophy. I retired in 2008 and became a secondary math teacher. I moved to TX from California to be with my daughter. My wife, unstable at best, died in 2014. I’m a single dad of a beautiful blonde 11 year old girl. She’s my main focus. “Patroclus was a better man than you, but death did not spare him”-Calisthenes
It’s childish. I use it with my daughter, but she’s growing out of it.
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 am a young 74 years old. Love riding my bicycle to keep fit.I live in CapeTown, South Africa, one of the most beautiful cities in the world. I have been an athiest for as as I can remember, but the movement keeps growing so my circle of friends keep getting bigger. I have a wide general knowledge so can chat on a variety of subjects. Love to be obtuse and stirring the pot. Not so interested in a love relationship as in friendship. I have a wonderful girlfriend, but she is very religious so keep wondering how long our relationship will last ?
" Yummy ! A moist cluster fuck. Yum yum, my favourite words in one delish sentence. "
I am a hair color specialist. Live with my cat child in Louisville. I google everything. Can agree to disagree. Bikram hot yoga. Tattoos. Horseracing and Bourbon, cliche, I know. Animal lover. INTJ and Pisces, weird right? Diverse interests.
Not embarrassing, just fun throwbacks. I still am awkward so that hasn’t changed. lol.
I will make my way into your heart... then slowly devour it. But don't let that scare you! I'm a super sweet PTA mom!! Native Pacific northwest gal here. I love my city! Im in sales and am a professional temporary body artist. (Face paint, body art and henna.) I love to create and I love people!

Best way by far to bring up kids is with both parents together, marriage strengthens a couple, or should. But few take the vow seriously. I you don't get on, don't have kids, once you do have kids you owe it to them for you both to get on.
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.
It could be nice to connect with similar minds, to exchange perspectives. I love learning about different cultures and meeting new people, exploring history and behavior, to gather insight into the human experience. Socrates summed it up, so well, when he said "The only true wisdom is to know I know nothing". I love beautiful things, that lift the spirit. Music, art, nature, architecture. I'm a strong proponent of compassion. Kindness is not weakness, and niceness is not kindness.
In the process. They're between 10 and 20. I'm kind of no-nonsense. They know I mean what I say. Respect is expected from them and given to them, as individuals. I want them to think before they align themselves with any beliefs. They don't have to think what I think, but please think... However, our running joke is, the only thing you could ever do you break your mothers heart is become a baptist. 😂 There are not any other people, in the world, whose company I enjoy more.
I am at the age where I am tired of the pretense and bullshit...time to be what I am openly. I am educated, have common sense, care about people, and like to discuss things in a fact driven manner, but I am open to new ideas and am curious about how others have come to their views. Not looking for a long term relationship...just some adult fun, whatever we can handle with no expectations and no bullshit. Sure, I have dirty pictures, but they cost...earn my respect and interest and be fucking nice to me and everyone else. I am a consummate flirt because it is good old fashion fun. Join in, if you want. Life is too short to mince words. ********************************************************** Because for some reason, people want to know: Military Brat who has traveled all over the world. Still traveling. Married 40 years to the same man. In a complicated love relationship with another man as well. And, also love a special woman. Don't ask. Attended undergrad at Purdue with degrees in psychology, English and Russian literature Attended graduate school at Krannert Graduate School/Purdue with an MBA specializing in accounting and computer science. Love cats and dogs and have both...all black furbabies. I lift weights three times a week and follow keto. I love to swim, scuba dive, and hang out at the beach. I also like to bowl and I do virtual races because I love the medals. My ice cream flavor is vanilla. Don't hate me, but I am not a chocolate or a peanut butter fan. I like sexy underwear even though no one sees them. I also love shoes, handbags, and I own probably 50 lipsticks at any one time. I am a Pisces but I don't believe in that shit. I just like the artwork...two fishes. I am 5'5" tall and weight XXX pounds...never ask a woman her age or her weight unless you are an idiot. I cuss like a sailor and I tell off color jokes and stories. My favorite words are fuck, cunt, shithole and ass wipe. I use them daily whenever I can. I like people and appreciate the unique qualities in each person. We all have our gifts and sharing them makes us human beings. I like being a human being.
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.
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.
Divorced dad and recovering born again looking to accept the void. I love learning, laughing, wine, and giving a quality foot rub. Huge movie fan, and I equally enjoy BBC dramas and rude American cartoons meant for grown ups. The chance is extremely high my music collection is bigger than yours. On the sapiophile and demisexual spectrums, I prefer intelligence, humor, and a little sentimentality in my partners. I have a thing for strong willed women and lady geeks living out their passions. Currently geeking out on mindfulness, how our brains work, and how moral psychology exposes the fallacy of the left/right divide.
devoted, smart, funny, perverted slut
"There was a young man who said though, it seems that I know that I know, but what I would like to see is the I that knows me when I know that I know that I know." Alan Watts But me , I've always been here. Have a seat talk with me , so that we can get to know one another.

Native of Northern California, grew up in the Bay Area, New York City and divided Germany. Have lived in the Denver area now almost 30 years, raised both of my adult daughters here. Currently living with a family of three once feral cats and a few rescued guitars. Fascinated with 20th Century European History, music and historical travel. You’ve never met anyone like me. The only dogma to which I adhere is the variant on the Golden Rule. In my time , I’ve been exposed to many thoughts, dogmas, politics, religions, beliefs and in many of them I have found something worthy of adoption. But there are many more that I have found to be obstacles to maximizing this opportunity called human life. Life is a series of great privileges – including fatherhood, providing a safe home for pets and local wildlife, a workplace full of brilliant and funny people, the knowledge of ancestry and family history, life-long friends, the ability to peek into history through the art form of cinema, witnessing history in the making, the pleasure of seeing some of the great performers of my time – athletes, actors, musicians, comedians, playing a beautiful instrument, living in a foreign country for an extended period of time, learning languages, seeing plants grow, travel, food, loving and being loved, and best of all, the opportunity to make a difference. Every chance I get, I express my thanks to those of the Greatest Generation for making possible this wonderful life I enjoy. I like adventure, but did most of the dangerous stuff when I was young and still immortal. Now, I have no aspiration for skydiving, motorcycles, mountain climbing, firearms, eating puffer fish, or trying to drive after a Jimmy Buffet concert. I find plenty of ways to injure myself in never ending home improvement projects, and that will suffice.
