Atheist
About Me:
I was raised Christian in the Bible Belt and still deal with the reality of religious oppression on a daily basis. I considered myself agnostic on and off through my late teens and early 20s. I finally stopped going to church when I was 20 and I never looked back. I read the God Delusion by Richard Dawkins when I was 23 along with some other great texts. Then, I realized I was atheist all along, I just needed someone to tell me that it was okay for me to be that way. If I really would put an age on it, I suppose when I started questioning Santa Claus, I started questioning everything.

25-30

I simply want somewhere to vent when I'm in a very militant mood.

Now, to give a back story on the actual topic... I'm a serial online dater.  The first step after talking via messages or e-mails is to get a phone number.  In this day and age, a phone number is for texting and you need extra permission before actually talking on the phone.  Well, you could wing it,…
