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

Lillie, what a sweet memory!  How cute. :)

Thanks for the hug back Grinning Cat!

Ruth, my bed got here, and 2 of my cats, and my dog all hopped right on it!  My cat Lula will be terrified of it for a while since it's something new, and the fact that 2 strange men brought it into our house. lol  Yes, I am always wary of Trolls, but on Facebook it was actually people I know that I just don't want really anything to do with.  I wish them well, but life is short, and I'd rather spend it with family, friends I have things in common with (like you guys on here!), and, of course, animals. I love my dog, but I am definitely a cat person!!!!  I wish my dandruffy, long-haired, black cat Dale, age 12 would let me brush him, but he never has, and never will.  He screams!   I love the Daily Job Moods at Work.  I'll show my husband.  I'm sure he can relate!!!

Thought you'd appreciate this.

A new bed with more room for cats? Bravo! Booklover, we are “real-life” people,  minus the theistic mind poisoning.  Though AN is far superior to Facebook at keeping trolls to a minimum.

My tuxedo cat's black back used to feel rough and have lots of dandruff. Now that she's acclimated to a loving household and lets herself be brush and petted often, her back is shiny and soft.

Hugs back to you, Melinda, and hugs to everyone here!

("To claim your life would have no meaning..." is a keeper, for sure.)

And Steph, I'll have what you're having! :)

Make mine a double, too.  lol.  When I was a child, my grandmother had bantam hens and she always saved the tiny eggs for me.  I felt very special having my own eggs small like me.

lol, cute picture Steph!  I'll have a double Margarita, AND two kittens please! :)

oh booklover that is so cute!! Love it.

Hugs to you Melinda.

Group hug for everyone.

Joan I love the chick picture - could you also think about posting it for the Bird group? I think the bird group would love to see it.

Always appreciate your contributions.
