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

Patricia, I think we're going to make a ramp to the bed for our dog (Molly)! lol

Carl, Happy Thanksgiving to you too, and to all the AN friends!  I am very glad all of you are here and that we became friends.  <3  Mindy

Happy Thanksgiving to all my friends who are celebrating today.  I hope you have an enjoyable and satisfying day.  Thanks for being such a wonderful group of people.

Exactly Steph! We are thinking of getting our dog a bed for the floor now that she's old and having a hard time getting up on the couch, etc., but we think the cats will probably take it over! Maybe if we put a box next to it... Lol

Ha ha Carl, no one friend-requests me anymore because I have friended and unfriended everyone so much.  Not kidding!  It's like an OCD thing!  I'm friendly, someone pisses me off, I unfriend everyone or leave Facebook.  Seriously.  People on Facebook think I'm disturbed.  LOL.  I will stay strong this time though Carl and not friend anyone again! ha ha

Mindy, it sounds like Facebook will be a better experience for you as long as you stick to your stated goals.  I imagine there will be pressure on you to accept friendship requests from family and acquaintances, but now you know from experience not to open that can of worms again.  Good luck.  Be strong, my friend, and may the force of refusal be with you, my child.

Okay, so talking with Joan about Facebook, and my sister saying she missed me on Facebook, made me get back on Facebook. BUT... I am only friends with a very few people who I won't argue with, and I play online instant-win games a lot and was missing-out on a lot of them that require Facebook, and, like Joan said, she liked the info. that comes to her through it.  So I'm going to use it less as a social network, and more as a "get funny pictures and jokes, win prizes, and occasionally talk to a select few people page."  ;)  Also, I'm going to try and only check it once a day.
