In February I posted an ad on Craigslist.org looking for some new friends or activity partners to discuss a few topics, and to my surprise, quite a few people responded positively. Shortly there after, my little activity partner search turned up more awesome people than I could interact with so we started doing weekly meetups at a local coffee shop.
We soon realized that we needed a website to keep everyone up to date on previous topics, emails, ideas, and meetings so this website was launched as a virtual meeting place to keep track of what we talk about.
The Craigslist ad is as follows and if YOU can relate, please JOIN US:
I know this post is going to sound strange to some but try to bare with me here if you’re interested in making a new friend. I’m basically posting a little about me and some of my beliefs because I’m looking for an intellectual person to share thought provoking ideas with – someone I can see eye to eye with. Average people are not capable of this it seems and I’m not trying to say I’m better than anyone, I’m saying that the things I find interesting, know, understand, and believe are “not normal” ideas and so it’s hard to have an intellectual conversation with people most of the time.
So if there’s another (not normal) person out there who knows what I’m talking about in this post, I’d sure love to hear from you. I’m not looking for anything other than a normal friendship with a person (male or female) who can relate.
…. Here’s an example, there is a newly discovered, very large planet coming our way that has been discovered and randomly talked about in the last few decades (since 1983 and more recently in the whole 2012 nonsense) that the government is not talking about. The planet is real, it is headed our way, nobody knows exactly when but because the government is trying to keep it covered up, anyone who talks about this is a nut job conspiracy theorist..
I consider myself an educated intellectual person with only a few friends (none in fact that I can actually sit down and have a stimulating conversation with – and that’s what I’m looking for). I read a lot and I love learning new things. I’ve been a sponge for knowledge on all subjects for about 20 years now since my awakening in the late 1990s.
However it seems that the more I educate myself, the more I move right up out of my social group. For example, I don’t hunt, fish, drink, smoke or watch mind-numbing sports or television and so I’m not usually the guy to “fit in” with the average “normal people” And what’s worse, is that I’m Vegan! If I mention any of this to the normal people, they look at me funny like something’s wrong with me when in fact is it they who need to be (or should be) educated. The things I want to talk about, are not things the average person has any idea about or they want to argue and get upset about things they have not educated themselves on and it’s frustrating – where are the open minded people ?
I am very well versed and knowledgeable on many religions and so as you can imagine, I am not a “religious person”, though I do believe in a creator – just not what we have been told about one. I know more about religions and Christianity than most priests, pastors and ministers but I can’t talk to them about religion because it would shake their faith and I don’t want to do that to anyone.
I am not of any political slant as they are all ploy to confuse and divide the people for more control and taxation. We are all slaves to the system and most people are still asleep to what’s really going on in the world. If you want to learn more about what I’m suggesting or talk about politics and you have an open mind and are ready to discuss the truth with someone, I welcome the challenge, but I didn’t post this to find a political debate partner.
I don’t harm or eat animals (I’m vegan) and I know more about diet and nutrition than most doctors and so called experts (nutritionists). So if you truly want to loose weight, reverse many medical illnesses, or simply get healthy and you have an open mind, I can point you in the right direction but that’s not what this post is about either.
I have literally hundreds of interests and hobbies and they change with the weather it seems. Currently I practice martial arts and work out at a gym but I have no one to share these interests with either. I’m half tempted to start going to yoga with my wife just to try and pretend I can fit in somewhere.
If you have managed to make it through this very unusual post, you can be any age, you can be married or single, male or female, healthy or not, skinny, fat, need help or want to help me – either way I don’t care. But if you know what I’m talking about in this post and or have a similar situation, please text or email. I hope I am not the only nut job / conspiracy theorist / wacko / weird person in Grand Rapids – I’m sure there has to be at least one more like me out there and if you find this, let me know 🙂
