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.

Happily, I am now a five year breast cancer survivor, and I am thankful to my friends, family, my health care team, and to science and medical discoveries. Dealing with cancer and treatment is never easy and it's damned scary, but it is easier when…Continue

Felaine, that Flashmob brought tears to my eyes.  Human Beings can sometimes be so awesome. Thank you for sharing that!!!

Ian, I am happy for your daughter and for you. :)

Steph, love the hoodie cat.

Tony, love the science joke!

All of you have a wonderful week and be good to yourselves! ~ Melinda

Thanks Joan. I will survive. Might swear and curse somewhat though.

The good news: my daughter, age 25, has a boyfriend that she feels comfortable telling me about. I met the one she had when she was 18 but she dumped him because he was more interested in beer and football than anything else. There have been others but she hasn't said anything about them. All I know so far is that his name's Martin, he's also a student at business school and they met working the same weekend job at a supermarket chain's call centre. The other thing they have in common is that his Dad is English too. I'm looking forward to meeting him at some point. He'll be all right 'cause my daughter chose him but I doubt that anyone's really good enough for my little girl :-D

Booklover and Patricia I really like your Atheism posts - I agree.

I'm saving the pictures and reading up on how everything is going on with all of you. I did not watch the Superbowl - I am just not interested in that. But I am wondering if there were any commercials that stood out. I think there's a webpage that goes over the Superbowl commercials.
