Hang With Friends

Location: Earth
Members: 839
Latest Activity: 1 hour ago

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.

You're right Patricia!  In the daytime my bed is Dale and Dora's, but at night, it's only Lula's. lol

Ha Carl.

Yes she is Steph!  She just went to visit her best friend from college whose boyfriend of over 5 years just broke up with her.  They had plans to move to Arizona and get married.  He's been an Atheist as long as she's known him.  He just decided he's a Mormon again like his family.  He had an "epiphany," and decided to move to California with his brother.  Better she finds out now I guess!

Thanks for the link Flying Atheist - love cats.

Your daughter sounds very unique Booklover - very independent thinking.

How is everyone?

Comment by Patricia on April 5, 2014 at 2:42pm

Yes, kitties & their routines.....I swear they wear ''wrist'' watches when it's treat/feeding time! Then of course there is play time & many nap times, but they each have their places & change places depending on the time as well. The war still goes on about who gets my husband's chair, & when.

Yes, cats are grand, aren't they.

I loved "I think my cat is a Republican," Carl. Lol

My daughter went on another date last night with the same guy. I ask her and she says she doesn't want to talk about it. They are going Tuesday to the Art Institute in Chicago. I'll tell her to wave to you Carl;). She may just be one if those people that don't want anyone in their personal space too long, excluding cats! If she's happy alone, that's great! But I don't want her to decide that at 22 without trying it or at least talking to a therapist about it more. She has an active social life. I am content to have Grandcats! :)

For all you cat lovers (I think there may be one or two of you here) I wanted to post this link from "Daily Kos" I Think My Cat is a Republican.  It's pretty funny.  Also, if you scroll through the comments section there are lots of cute pictures.

You won't believe me, I don't read the main stream news. I just read satire news websites (for the most part). I like humour. I LOVE humour.

Laughing is the best thing you can do in this world full of sorrow.

I think laughter is very good for us.  For one thing, it helps us face the challenges of life and overcome anger and depression.  It's the reason I watch my favorite comedy movies once a year, as well as the few comedies on TV I can find.

I wish I were like Mindy and could laugh a lot.  I can if I'm with the right people, but those people are few and far between.

Good one Loren.  That's a keeper.
