Lots of ex-Christians seem to miss the social aspects of their old churches.
Others might recognise that socialising with people with common interests can work well.
Others again really don't want to spend too much time with other atheists - it can seem cliquey, and what is there in common other than a disbelief in the unproven?
I fit into the first two categories but I live in a place where I know of no other "out there" atheists - so if I want to have a beer with one, I have to fly to London to join the Skeptics in the Pub (great organisation). I'd like to meet up more with atheists and free thinkers - but it's proving difficult to find any!
Do you make an effort to spend time with other atheists and free thinkers, and if so, where and how? And if you do, does it work? ie do you enjoy it?
