I Have Trouble Connecting With People

Sometimes...because I'm not religious. I don't believe in Jesus, or Allah, or the Buddha. I respect other people's right to do so, and I can understand people's need for religion, but for me...it's just not there. I feel like that causes issues for me

Anybody else?

Edit: I don't have trouble connecting with people in general. I'm very good at connecting with people irl, it's that I have trouble connecting with uber religious people.

Do you live in a very religious country? Society maybe?

That should be hard to make friends indeed...

In North America people are not very religious, it's easier to connect with people
It's not that i have trouble connecting with people. It's due to the fact I prefer to stay my distant. And I wouldn't think being religious, a born again Christian or whether or not you believe there's a god. I'm not religious nor am I a Christian and still don't connect.

I live in the south, in the US. Not the deep south, mind you, but the south none the less.

I have trouble connecting with people, but not for that reason. I just get taken very seriously when I am joking around. There is more to it than that but that is the simplist way to explain it.

Do you find that those who are religious have an issue with you not being so? That's unfortunate if that is the case

I see myself as more spiritual than super religious but I have been fortunate that those I have in my life accept me for my beliefs and I accept them for theirs.

I don't have any trouble connecting with people, I have trouble connecting on a deeper level with people that are really religious.

The title I chose for the thread is a bit misleading, unintentionally, of course.

I'm not religious, I consider myself spiritual. I sometimes find it a little more difficult to connect w/people on that level but I just remember that not everyone is the same. If it was that way life would be boring...

I find it interesting listening to people that contrast to me. Push me outta my comfort zone. If you believe in someTHING or someONE then tell me why. It's not about the differering opinions to me, it's about the learning opportunity.

Everybody wants to pray for me and I can feel their mind emanations draining me of life force whilst I'm trying to nap. lol

I actually connect with people rather well, it's just that when I meet people that are really religious, I have trouble maintaining that connection, or allowing it to deepen.

I live in the south also, and most Christians aren't very tolerant people. At least the one's I've met. It kills everything, especially dating.

I consider myself spiritual as well. I just don't see God as most people do.

It's mostly really devout people that I have trouble connecting with.

Yes.

I do have a hard time with folks that aren't willing to listen to others thoughts, views, feelings on anything different from their own beliefs. Like i said, those closest to me are not like that and that is because i have a hard time being around someone that closed minded. Just because I don't feel the same about 'your God" or practice, does not mean to shut me down and close all conversations about something different, ya know.

Oh...

Is it a very religious area?
I'm in Canada... People are not very religious here...

In my head it's the same thing everywhere in North America...

Do you want to connect with uber religious people? It's ok if you dont connect with EVERYONE. That is the beauty of living, to choose who you want to associate with and who you dont.

There is a more fundamentalist nature to religion here. Not all are fundamentalists, but there is a tendency toward it, especially older people.

I Understand, pisces moon is super receptive.

Closed mindedness is a terrible thing. I am a firm believer that everyone can teach others, if both folks are willing to learn. Maybe because i was raised in the PNW i was exposed to more of a hippie, free choice type of thing. Never really spent much time in the South, but i do know religion is very predominate. You just haven't meet the right girl yet in the dating scene is all.
