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

Yes Patricia! :)

My Mom couldn't handle 2 shelter cats.  The little one is very nosy/naughty.  So I came up with the best plan!  My daughter is moving into a house with her friends next month.  Pets are allowed.  My daughter is "poor", my Mom is NOT.  My daughter has depression.  So, my Mom gave the little cat to my daughter, and bought all the stuff for her, and is going to pay for any care she needs, etc.  My daughter is happy having a pet of her very own to love and take care of.  She is such a cat lover and will take excellent care of her.  My Mom is relieved that the cat has an excellent "Mom," (She NEVER would have returned her to the shelter), and the older cat that she kept is Perfect for my Mom.  She just wants to lay on her lap all day, and doesn't even get into anything.  She's lazy! lol.  So everyone is happy, except my cats, who know there's another cat in my daughter's room right now.  The cat's name is now Lucy.  She LOVES my daughter, and adjusted right away.

America was not shut down properly. Would you like to start America in safe mode, with free healthcare and without the guns? (Recommended)
