      were all college age and felt more like D&D group than a coven. I've looked for others since 2003. If I lived in the city, we'd spend time in Little Five Points, which is the counterculture area--but I live 45 miles away from the Atlanta border. Heck I even tried the kinky folk--but they were unfriendly as all get-out. After two years we gave up. Going to events was way too expensive to not make friends. The problem was that they are very divided by age down here, which meant the Goth people  had a cut-off at 50 (really dumb when Elder Goths can go up to 50=). And the other group disapproved of my corsets and Victorian style. Sometimes you gotta know when to quit, y'know?

      My politics are wrong too,. EVen the kinky people were basically Bill Cohen Republicans.

      This is the ONLY place where I've never made friends. I can talk to almost any body--but down here religion is such a big factor...

      The last time we mixed religion and politics people got burned at the stake.
