So my marriage of 5 years is ending (nobody's fault; our own unaddressed personal issues grew until they drove a wedge between us), and I'm about to find myself on the market for the first time in over a decade. While that's obviously intimidating for many reasons, one major one that's been bugging me is that I'm an atheist living in Oklahoma, and it's more than a little depressing to skim through dating profiles and see almost nothing but "Christian" listed in the "religious views" field.
Understand, I don't have a problem with the notion of dating a non-atheist, provided she understands and respects that I'm not going to convert and I won't a participant in religious ceremonies and events, it's just hard enough to meet new people without worrying whether someone is "Christian" or "CHRISTIAN!!!", if you get my drift.
Anyone else here in a similar situation, past or present? Any helpful tips or amusing anecdotes?
