      You're from NZ, your opinion on what's cold or not doesn't count! And Iceland is practically a big ass hot spring because the whole damn place is an active volcano ^^

      Dude, seriously, Iceland averages 0 degrees C in the lowlands in the winter! It's cold! Hey Iceland and NZ share something - they both sit on volcanos! Kaboom baby!

      Have you thought about coming out on Tinder or Bumble? "Godless liberal, enjoys patios and walks along the beach..."

  3. I just cannot give a fuck about my latin homework. Worse case of senioritis.

  4. I am Paul Rudd in I Love You, Man except in female form.

  5. I would also get them to read about other religions (if their really interested) and read about what they all believe so that the kids can see that it's all as fake as fairy tales/fantasy, etc and that way they know to avoid religions in general if they know its all fake.
  6. SO EXCITED FOR THE FORCE AWAKENS

      It's the new star wars movie, episode 7. Set 30 years after the original trilogy of luke, leia and han solo.

  7. SO many god damn sex abuse scandals on the news and current events forum. Can we please post other things besides that please?

  8. I am so sorry, I can't imagine how you feel having to give up someone you love. We're talking about sexual repression from religion in this topic, if you want to join us. I grew up Christian so I have always been taught to be afraid of sex and I am a 23-year-old shy virgin. I feel socially behind due to this but after leaving religion, at least my depression went mostly away and my confidence has grown in the last few years tremendously http://www.ex-christian.net/topic/65409-religious-sexual-repression/#.VGbfYFfF90Y
  9. Totally agree Littlena, it's more of a subtle, ingrained thing in our culture when it comes to makeup and high heels, and the woman who don't wear it do feel pressured to wear those those things. It's all from other women but I have had a man passively tell me, in a general post, to put on make up and that hurt worse than sister or mom telling me to. When other women shame me for it, I just defensive and don't want to do it even more. Also, duderonomy, why would we wear heels in bed? I feel like men have been just as ingrained as women to find high heels attractive in our culture when the
  10. I used to be depressed and anxious too. I wondered why my non-religious friends were always so comfortable and confident with themselves and as soon as I realized it was all a lie, the weight of the world lifted off of my shoulders. I cried about it and about all the wasted tears and agony I put myself through but over the last few years, my confidence has improved a lot, although I am still shy about some stuff. As for guilt, all of mine completely went away as soon as I realized it was a lie and that dramatically improved my mood quickly. Although I still get depressed sometimes but it is a
  11. Thanks luke1993! Vigile, I'm waiting for the right guy to come along and I don't think I could ever do one-night stands, but I'm glad to know all of the anxiety disappeared after you had sex. Hopefully, that will happen for all of us too.
  12. Great pictures, its sad what is happening over there. I'm still amazed that women will defend the niqab (face covering veil) but that is probably due to the Stockholm Syndrome they experience.
  13. I am in the exact same boat as the OP, except I'm a female with guy problems. I've never been in a relationship and have only been on two dates where I was terrified to be touched by the two guys because I had been taught that pre-marital sex was life-ruining. I was also terrified of pregnancy and diseases so I was shy and withdrawn. No guys ever noticed me romantically, but I have no problem talking about everything else with both men and women. Thanks for all of the links, I know it will take time to grow past this and accept myself as a natural, healthy adult with normal urges.
  14. I understand what your saying, I miss an automatic social circle that got together every week more or less to discuss the thing they all had in common. I wish that I had a book club like that or that my internet friends who discuss tv/movies we love would be able to get together like that but they either live all over the world or there are no social groups anywhere near me that I am interested in. That is one of the most difficult things after deconverting. Its like do you still speak to them, especially since you didn't really have anything in common besides that. Even if you do, like I do w
