Hang With Friends

Location: Earth
Members: 833
Latest Activity: 53 minutes 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.

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

Congratulations for your courage!  I've been a non-believer for almost 50 years, but I didn't say Jack schidt about it for nearly 25 years.  Mostly the subject just never came up, and I had stopped going to church about 10 years before I figured out that all religions were preposterous.

GOOD FOR YOU!

Hi Destiny.  I see you are new to Atheist/Nexus.  Welcome!!  Your announcement on Facebook felt refreshing, I'm sure.  It's times like those when you find out who your true friends and supporters are, and that's a good thing.  It makes those relationships stronger and more cherished, which in turn makes life better.  

You're in a GREAT group here in Hang With Friends.  Some of the nicest (and funniest) people to associate with.  I wish we could all meet for a big bash of great pot-luck food and drink.  I know it would be a blast.

Happy Friday, everybody!   

(**Special shout-out to Sk8eycat: you crack me up.)

I'm late! Soo late!
I have always liked the name Melinda! Destiny Tripp is my actual name. An atheist named "Destiny Tripp". A bit ironic, huh? My poor brothers name is Chrstian, also an atheist! Anyone is welcome to find me on fb btw

Sorry, Destiny, I left Facebook a long time ago.

Thanx for the friend request! And the words of encouragement! I may be young but I feel old! I JUST gained access to the internet and because of groups like this, I would have felt enough support to come out YEARS ago! This point in my life I just feel like those who matter dont mind, and those who mind DON'T MATTER!

I'm sure they are adorable!  There are SO many cat-lovers here!

Comment by Destiny Tripp on July 13, 2012 at 3:42pm
Also, I have been trying to share a pic from my phone to booklover. I have here with me 3 adorable, fluffy kittens! Try to just picture them, 2 black and ome grey. =^..^=
