Geese, so many middle aged people here. Where are all the young adults? Really not looking for someone much older than myself and the restrictions / profile preferences don't seem to alter the algorithm or anything. No offense middle aged adults, but you are NOT my type haha
I actually think you deserve a real answer without prejudice. Yes there are many middle age people here because of the life dynamics of losing a religion and gaining independence thinking. The stats show that religion is less important amongst millenials. For many here that view was imposed on them growing up. Many of us live, work and interact with theist zealots every day. This website is an outlet and a place to potentially find a like minded person later in life. Many have landed here thinking of finding a partner but have stayed because they found a community of rational speaking people.
If dating within your own age group is all you're looking for, this is probably not the right place (currently). It may change in the future since the site is still young and growing.
There are young people on here but they don't tend to post much or stay.
I've tried to get my girl on here, she's your age, but she can't be sussed to do it, being sucked up someplace else online. That's no reflection on you, but there are atheist young ppl out there that just won't bother with this. shrugs
You've got an edge tho in that not so many kids being raised religious as in the slightly older generations so you might be more likely to meet similar age/mindset IRL or in a multitude of other avenues online.
Otoh your delivery is a little bumpy, js.
I came here because I'm atheist and I'm also a free thinker. I never looked at the site as a dating site, but if I find someone here then so be it. I'm also a bit more than middle aged and I'm an activist and computer geek.
The younger generation is concerned with getting laid, or drunk, and maybe just playing games. Claims of many of them that they do not believe in gods are no more than rebellion because they seem to believe in so many other things and do so without evidence. There are no gods and there is nothing that goes bump in the night.
Best of luck on your dating whether you find someone here or in other places.
I'm not sure where I fall into your age category, but damn, some people got bitter about your post. hahaha. You have preferences in dating just like everyone else. It's completely acceptable you don't want to date someone middle aged (aka twice your age).
I've also noticed that a majority of people here are middle age to older adults, wondered what is the average age for members here and what are percentages of members based on age groups (Teens, 20s, 30s, 40s, etc). I like looking at statistics
But this site can be a good way to meet fellow atheists/agnostics/free-thinkers, form friendships, share ideas, or talk about random stuff.
