Autumn always makes me a little nostalgic, and I start thinking about friends I have lost along the way. I am just wondering if I should try to contact some of the people that I was once close with. Granted, one of the ones I am thinking of contacting..... well, we did not end things on the best of terms. It has been 5 or more years since I have seen some of them. Have you contacted long-lost friends? How did it go?

I moved from southern cali to chicago land about 8 years ago, leaving behind 5 really good friends and a what would prolly be a "girlfriend" now. After a year of moving, everything stopped, the phone calls and letters. About 2 months ago, i finally got a hold of this girl and we have been talking online everyday. I am going to cali to see her this xmas break. The hardest thing i ever heard from her was "if you were here, we would be going out." So i guess if you contact the right people, things will be ok.

Good luck.

I firmly believe in the idea that the phone rings both ways. I've tried in the past to keep in touch with old friends from high school. But when you wait first days, then weeks, then months for replies to come... it becomes frustrating. What is the bigger problem in the era of email it takes virtually no effort (pun intended) to keep in touch. No stamps, no paper cuts, no licking yucky tasting envelopes.

I've thought about looking up some old friends... but have decided against it for the time being.

Don't sweat it there, mate. Enjoy all the magnificently tall buildings in Chi-town there, and foo-get about her. She's just saying all that to get your attention. Most women like the idea that they can make a friend, ex, etc.. jealous or wanting on command. Obviously there is a lot I don't know, but I have seen this sort of thing many times before (Of course it's never happened to me, as I am way to cool with my laser vision, Big grin ), and it just looks that way to me.
You want to find a nice local, attractive byrd. Not saying anything badly about the travel, but the relationship part will get awful after a while.

Cheers

Actully yes, I did do that. Back in 1995 I went to a summer camp in Greenwich, CT and I met this really great guy named Josh. We became quite good friends but after October I lost contact with him. The next summer I decided to give him a call. What I got was a recording saying their number changed so I called the new one and asked "so whered you guys move to?" Now im expecting like Danbury or maybe Newburgh but what I got was Saratoga, California. Total kick in the crotch. For the next few months I called him twice and exchanged some letters but then again he dropped off my radar scope. In October of 2001, I was bored on the internet so I decided to do a random AOL search with his name and city. Remarkably he had put his full name and city into his profile. Two days later I imed him and it was like old times again. This October I went out to Saratoga (SJC) and hung out with him for a weekend. He's now what I consider my best friend and I have just one positive thing to say about AOL, you got me a friend back.

I've gotten back into contact with a couple of people using e-mail. It's interestng at first to find out what they're up to, but it's easy to run out of things to talk about.

It's worth giving a try. Some might be pleased to hear from you. And if they don't respond well (or at all), then you know that is that and you can just move on.
