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.

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

Thank you booklover - you are a joy! What a cute kitty named Dale - I would love to see a picture of your beautiful cat Melinda.

Tony, I LOVE that picture, and thank-you SO much!  You are my friend too!!!~ Melinda

Loren, such a nice picture!!

@ Tammy, I love that "anti-homicide medication!"  There was an e-card on Facebook I thought was hysterical, it said "I don't get nearly enough credit for not being a homicidal maniac!" LOL.  And yes, my husband and kids tell me to quit getting so upset over the news, politics, etc.  I say I can't help it, I just can't take the stupid anymore! lol.  I never get mad at my kids, they are my world.  They probably wish I would get more of a life! lol. 

@ Steph, you're welcome, and I want to be nicer like you are!  Also, I have a big, black cat whose name is DALE of all things.  Hubby named him. lol.

For you, my friend Melinda. You are special, and I always seek out what you, Steph, Loren, SB, Joan, Ruth, FA, and a few others are posting. I work 14 hrs a day, and don't get to post as much as I like, but you are wonderful,  insightful, funny, witty, and I like you. So, big hug from me. too.

Loren that is a great picture of you and your cat! There are many cat lovers here - yes! I love cats - especially the black ones.

Comment by Tammy S on July 20, 2012 at 11:06am

LOL Melinda I'm so glad you get my humor, I try never to take anything too seriously. I'm seriously hormonal of late... (mentalpause) and all the stupidity in the world seems to get to me a lot more than it used to, humor is my anti-homicide medication!

Comment by Loren Miller on July 20, 2012 at 11:06am

Did someone here mention cat-lovers?

Comment by booklover on July 20, 2012 at 11:02am

Hey, I also LOVE that a ton of people on here are cat-lovers! lol :)

Comment by booklover on July 20, 2012 at 11:01am
