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.

LOL sk8eycat!  But I know you're an Atheist and I still think you're nice. :)  A lady once said to my Atheist mom "so you don't believe in god and you're good anyway?" LOLOL

@booklover:  LOL  I don't think I'm particularly nice (I enjoy seeing greedy, arrogant, and/or self-righteous people fall on their a$$es ... publicly, for one thing.  I enjoy helping them do that even more.

But it's funny, for the past 30+ years I have gotten the same response when I tell someone I'm a hard-line atheist, "But?  But?  But, you're so NICE!"

WTF do they think we are?

I had 256, almost all posts from A/N. Wow! First time for me, since only been here 3 mos.

Comment by booklover on May 30, 2012 at 2:58pm

Today  I opened my e-mail and I had 176! lol.  Almost all from AN and old posts!

Comment by The Flying Atheist on May 30, 2012 at 2:19pm

@Sk8eycat.  Yes, me too.  I'm getting e-mail notices of postings here on A/N that are eight days old!!   This is not the first time either.  This problem seems to pop up every now and then.  It's frustrating. 

Comment by booklover on May 30, 2012 at 2:05pm

Thanks Sk8eycat!  If she wins, I will let you guys know so she can read it.  She has always been an Atheist and she could read since just before she was 2 (I swear, and nobody taught her.)  She is a Journalism Major/History Minor, smart as a whip, but can't do math to save her life, lol.

And no, you're not being snoopy!  I have what the gastro calls a neuropathy of the digestive-system, but he doesn't really have a full diagnosis.  SO lucky the first med he tried restored me to being a functional person again.  I literally laid on the couch and cried for at least a week out of every month I was so horribly nauseous. And I was NEVER nauseous with my pregnancies!

I'm so sorry you lost your friend.

Thanks for all the good wishes!  You are so nice!

booklover, I would LOVE to see your daughter win one of the FFRF scholarships!  Every single one that I've read over the years in Freethought Today has just blown me away!  I could never have written such intelligent essays when I was in high school; of course I was still breaking my butt trying to believe in Jeebus back then, so my brayne was only working at half-power at the time.

Ummmm...if I'm being too snoopy, just tell me to STFU, but you don't have Crohn's, do you?  I have had a couple of frieinds who had/have it, and it's a total mystery, as far as I know.  And miserable.  (One frieind died almost 20 years ago, but NOT of Crohn's...he was careless, and caught HIV/AIDS.  I still miss him dreadfully.)

Best wishes to you and your daughter!  Feel better, please!  If I owned a Thinking Cap, I would send it to her, but she probably doesn't need one.
