Information Introduction
Hello!

I should have done this introduction a long time ago, Ive been lurking around here for more then a year.

I am originally from Sweden, but since two years back I live in the US.
The move from Sweden to the US was a huge cultural change for me. Mostly because of the change from a secular country, to a more religious country - where religion plays a role in almost everything. In my years growing up, almost nobody in my group of friends were religious. And those few that were, kept it for themselves. Thinking back, I cannot name a single person from my years growing up that regularly went to church.

Two years ago i left to move to a country I had never been in before - I knew nobody and did not expect anything. I was going to study for three years at a small Christian University. One of my first encounters at the University was a discussion with a fellow classmate. After briefly getting to know her, it came out that I was an atheist. The first response that she gives me was "So you dont believe in love?". It blew my mind - and I knew that I had stepped in to a new world.

Its been very interesting so far, and I look forward to having some interesting discussion here in the future.

Cheers

Hej!

Welcome here, I hope you enjoy it.

I must also say this has got to be one of the dumbest things I've heard in my puff. And I've heard A LOT.

Hej Dreamer Smile

Almost noone here will ask you a dumb question like that Big Grin "So you don't believe in love"... I can think of only one member here, that would ask that haha
My grandparents used to talk Swedish to me but I forgot most of it.
Therefore a big welcome and "Jag skulle willja fem sju kronor frimarken" (and my spelling sucks)
