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.

I've been into genealogy for a long time. It's fun, especially with internet help, but increasingly frustrating. You see, I've hit "brick walls". And being a Smith doesn't make research any easier.Wouldn't you think I could find the death date and…Continue

I'm not a news hound by any stretch, but I do like to stay informed about what's going on in the world. (I despise "local" news with all the reports of murders, robberies, fires, etc.)The national "evening" news shows really irritate me. I hate…Continue

Loren and Patricia, LOVE LOVE LOVE the posts!

Steph, cute cat pic as always!  Well, the "young love" is not there. lol.  He told her he just wanted to be friends and wasn't looking for a relationship.  Obviously not true since he pursued her, and told her he really liked her.  It was she who was hesitant.  He said he couldn't wait to be a dad.  She doesn't want kids unless she adopts a child that probably no one else would adopt.  He wants to live here, she wants to live in Chicago, etc...  I think he was really attracted to her ( she's beautiful, but I am biased!) and wanted a girlfriend who looked like her, but knew she would never be what he wanted, and she knows he wasn't for her either.  I did make her laugh though since she broke-up with him when she was 14, I said maybe he'd been plotting this all along, and just crossed it off his list with crayon! lol

When I watch the dancing prisoners from Cebu, I wonder what happened to them. Cebu was one of the hardest hit islands. Is that prison even still standing?

What a cute story Booklover. Young love

Comment by booklover on November 13, 2013 at 8:11am

Joan, glad you subscribed.  Some of the videos are awesome.  This a.m. I have to go over to my Mom's.  My daughter and the guy she is dating are going to watch a movie here.  Our house is small, they both live at home still, and they are both broke.  So they really have no where to hang-out.  I volunteered to run errands.  There won't be any "funny business", lol because they just started dating, and my daughter has a bad head cold. They are both 21 though.  They used to date when they were 14.  I would have left them alone then too because one reason she broke up with him was that he never even kissed her once. LOL
