Hang With Friends

Come on in, pull up a chair!

Picture yourself spending some time with congenial friends, sharing your lives and pictures from your cell phones." They're curious about that cool game, song, movie, camping trip, art show, or other event that fascinated you. You talk about all kinds of stuff, poetry, styles, personal achievements, relationships, and bad days. You can share your inner child, and laugh together. They sympathetically listen to your feelings about serious topics like politics or climate change, even when they don't agree.

Personal validation comes from paying attention to one another, giving more than you get. Everyone respects you and themselves, despite our amazing range of personal tastes and interests. They'll tell you they don't agree with an idea or behavior without implying you're a bad person or somehow deficient. It's an "I'm OK, You're OK" kind of fellowship, where nobody tries to make himself look better by picking on somebody else.

Nobody here is into mind games. A discussion started with a loaded guilt-throwing question will be deleted.

This group is not intended to compete with other groups on topics they cover but to "fill in the cracks." Whenever a discussion dwells at length on a topic for which there's an existing group, we urge you to provide members a link to that group to continue along their tangent.

A comment is a shout-out, which will get lost in a few days, because the comment wall is just a random stack.

Please start a discussion to share stories, photos, and videos. Replies will pop up in your "latest activity" and a conversation can develop from the feelings and thoughts you contributed. Groups are built on discussions.

Saving Number 90 - From Seth Andrews (The Thinking Atheist)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo Jul 1. 9 Replies

Seth says himself that the following is a departure from the usual fare his YouTube channel features.  Personally, I think it's a positive and constructive move, because it demonstrates that no, we are NOT just about atheism.  We're also very much…Continue

Melinda, so you were away from the tornadoes, too.  I hope help gets to all the people who need it.

I was up til 3 am, making sure everything was safe here in my part of Missouri.  It was a crazy night for bad weather.  Hopefully, the people in the south, where this storm seems to be going next, will be ok.

Hi Rhonda!  I'm Melinda, I'm 44 and live in Northern Illinois. I'm married and we have a 17-year old son and a daughter, almost 20.  Glad you're back!

Wow!  This has been a long route to getting back here.  Haven't been on in quite a while, and had to make a new account.  Glad to see everyone here.

My name is Rhonda, and I am in Missouri.  I am a culinary school grad and sometimes barista. My kids are grown, but most of us live with the inlaws.  I like reading, and watching baseball, and a lot of other things.

I just saw this on CNN.com's home page this morning, and I thought I would share it with you ... because A|N IS an international community, and maybe sometimes we need a reminder that our problems are not necessarily unique to us ... or to U.S., if you get my meaning.

The lies they tell you! Not one word of truth about what he says on the Netherlands.
