I'm not sure what you mean by "as an atheist," for me it could as easily say as a skeptic, as a human, or as a man. Atheist is just one category of the many I fit into.

Otherwise, to answer your question in general terms infrequently, awkwardly, and ultimately unsuccessfully. I think I have developed a talent for pushing people away, but that may not apply entirely to dating.

Sorry I put up a photo. I am new and it looked like it was prompting me for one LOL


Easy I don't date I seem to get along with myself best so I think I found a perfect match I think I'm the one


I use too not bring it up until I ended up on a dated with a woman who used her faith as an excuse to be a bigot.


I don’t worry about it in an existential way. Associated attitudes and behavior had an effect.


I noticed the maple leaf are you canadian


I never think about it unless they say they have Jesus in their life, then I'm out. I won't share.


Like it is nitrogylcerin.....


I’m undateable...


Easy..I NEVER encourage or consider anyone who is religious. If they approach me on Facebook or on a dating site, I just block them.
If in person, I say I'm not interested in dating them, and walk away. No more interaction.

By the way, this website has a bit of a learning curve.

For members who are open to dating, certain thumbnails and profiles have a heart symbol on them with a percentage. This identifies which members are open to dating, and the percent shows approximately how compatible others are with them.

You can improve your website score in general by answering all the profile questions and writing a bio, which also earns website points, and helps other members get to know you.

Commenting on posts and writing your own posts earns more points. At level two you can private message people, and at level eight you get an agnostic T-shirt.

If you want to date, the website uses profile algorithms to find member matches, so the more details one includes, the better the match.

Many people prefer to see a written profile talking about interests, hobbies, and backgrounds that can be quickly perused to find others who are compatible with them.

In case you didn't know yet, to find members near you, click on the "Browse" button at the top of the page, then on "Members," and enter your preferred search parameters.
Click on the "Discuss" button, then "Nearby" to find members near you also.
Or click on the "About" button at the top left of the page to find links to FAQ or the website tutorial.
Points are now being given to level 3+ members who chat. You can see chat rooms on the group main page or at [].

Thanks. I am new as of just a few days ago. Still learning.


I would welcome that more than any thing. Most people I deal with have no idea what level I am on assume that I agree with their convoluted ideas. Think to be able to share my thought with someone that gets it would almost as good as sex.


My divorce was because of religion so I’m very upfront about it now.


As a male surrounded by theists, I don't.
