I have a big problem, guys.
I am a pretty damn militant Atheist who hates all religion, but it seems that most people that are attracted to me are Catholics. As in devout, practicing Catholics. I've dated 3 (only one put out), and I can name 4 women that have had crushes on me that were practicing Catholics. Right now, I have this girl that is really creeping me out with her pursuit towards me (to the point of it getting to be stalkerish) is a devout Catholic except in terms of sexuality. And that's not counting those who were simply raised Catholics...

I think to say that is harsh and a misunderstanding of the nature of my Atheism. I personally find theism to be an unscientific and destructive force in society; however, I understand the material and social basis and why so many turn to religion. I see people who are religious as simply misguided, and hey, we all have our hang-ups. I still maintain that people must have the right to religious freedom and should be able to practice what they shall (I have many, many close Christian friends who I do not look down upon). Yet I am very confident of my beliefs, and I will state my opinion if you ask for it... but I digress.
They go after you because you are Athiest. Isn't this obvious?
What do you mean material basis?
Almost all religions are anti-materialistic.
He's right Crucified, they go after you because you are Atheist. Most women search for adventurous, or rebels, and this is when you appear, you are a rebel.
Just moonlight as a Catholic and maybe that'll turn around.
Lolz, conquer and convert.
I'm an atheist. I don't attract anybody. My big problem > your big problem, unless you also have a problem "down there."
Why do people assume everyone is a troll these days? Have a little faith. Even if this is a troll, that shouldn't stop us from giving helpful advice or comments, if only for other people to see.
>>14 agree completely... This "you're a troll, you're a troll" bs needs to stop, now... There's a pretty obvious difference between trolls & nontrolls.... And even trolls w/ decent stories deserve helpful advice...
'An athiest is a person who hopes god wont shake his disbelief'
'I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours.'
in that case, have you tried telling her to fuck off?
catholicism tends to develop a level of codependency in its followers, especially the ones who start young. so while >>7,9 are right about them being attracted to the rebel/outsider, they also subconsciously see someone lost and in need of help, and they want to "heal" you. that won't come out till a little later, of course, so i'd advise you stay on your current course and stay away.
>they also subconsciously see someone lost and in need of help, and they want to "heal" you.
>>19 Nice way to completely generalize a massive group.
...and you wonder why people call all these posts trollbait? I've found that Catholics generally do not engage in prostelyzation at least using the methods evangelical Protestants use.
I fully agree with that. When I made a post earlier (Shadow of the Prom) is was shot down as a 'troll post'. Although a few people gave tips that I feel greatly helped in my eventual success.
Catholics are lost people who have no self confidence. Trust me. I was raised that way.
Catholicism is all about "THE CHURCH". That is, the institutional rules and regulations of this large, infallible institution of old men who are somehow more in touch with God than the rest of us...and we have to listen to how they tell us to live our lifestyle or else go to confession, or else go to hell.
I'm guessing none of these catholics are hot?
That's probably the main problem here. Cause, speaking as an atheist, having a bunch of naÏve, god-fearing, effectively sinning, sex-guilty, hot little catholic-school girls crawling all over me sounds like a good thing.
>>23 maybe for an one night stand, but for a real relationship.
How bad can it be? If they like you enough, maybe you can de-catholicize them.
i didn't mean to say they want to convert anyone, i've found that to be rather untrue about catholics actually. what i said was that the religion develops and fosters codependent personalities, and that sort of person will see a "bad boy" or rebel and think that she can "fix" him through the power of her love and care. many women (and people for that matter) fall into this category, it just seems like an awful lot of them are catholics. see also: non-alcoholic children of alcoholics.
Heheh...I just had to read this cause of the title. If you want to ward off Catholics from becoming romantic and gushy on you, search up "101 ways to bug catholics" or something like that. Mind you, some are rather good looking though, and great in bed. Not all Catholics are created equal (in the bedroom or otherwise). If worst comes to worst, pretend you're buddist or sikh or something. Or start wearing Scientology t-shirts.
>Or start wearing Scientology t-shirts.
Not something to joke about.
Well, I have a hot date tonight.
....with a Catholic.
Ah, I see. Well, I personally think of Scientology as a big joke with a cult following. Though I won't bring it up here, a bit off topic. >>30, report in on your date! :D
It was awkward and while she was very very hot, intelligent and sweet, she is all about LIFETEEN YOUTH GROUP ^______^ and ZOMG PRO-LIFE AND TEH CELIBECAYYY!1111.
sighs reminds me of the Army of Lovers song: I'm cruuuucified, crucifiiiiied, like my Saviour~
This song (but not the music video) aptly describes my feelings on my dilemma...
Well guys. You know how there are the 5 Stages of reaction: Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, and Acceptance. I have now reached acceptance.
I realized "Hey, at least I have somethin' goin' for me", and I've been repeatedly seeing this one woman repeatedly lately...
