Meet Other Skeptics:
In Real Life:
If you’re looking for that special someone, but would like to be able to talk about ideas and concepts without rolling your eyes, then simply state in your dating profile that you’re searching for a fellow skeptic. Going through life with someone intelligent is a wonderful experience. Some of the good dating sites:
- Match.com (use this page to save on memberships)
These are communities where you can discuss ideas and concepts with fellow skeptics. It’s difficult to parse out “intellectually curious people interested in exploring ideas without ideological nonsense getting in the way” from “cynical a__holes”, but that comes with practice:
- Skeptic Magazine
- Mythbusters (the TV Show’s Website)
- The Straight Dope
- Snopes – mainly focused on exploring urban myths.
- /r/skeptic – A Reddit community focused on skepticism. Heavy the ‘second type’ of skeptic we described in the opening paragraph.
