Weird thing is almost all of my old friends (from years and decades past) have tracked me down on their own.. I’m seeing a group of them on a weekly basis now, another one I get together with for a drink about once a month, and I’m trying to make plans to meet up for a second time with another old friend I recently reconnected with.
I think I still have a ways to go to really rebuild those bonds, and I have a few other far-flung friends I need to reach out to, but I feel like I’ve made huge progress on this. 4 years ago
Years ago, after a moderately long illness, then meeting the woman of my dreams and getting married, I lost touch with all of my friends. This is my fault, but I want to try to correct the situation.
I’ve recently reconnected with 3 old friends (1 of them found me, I tracked down one, and the other was a bump-into thing), and I hope to keep up these relationships.
I have several more people to get back in touch with. Some I may need to track down, and some I just have to think of what to say to them after all these years. 6 years ago
How do I go about reconnecting with a friend I haven't spoken to in two years? What do I do and what should I say when I get in touch with them? Thanks. 7 years ago
But it’s worth it. Recently I caught up with two friends that I haven’t seen for well over ten years.
Both of these guys were housemates of mine back in the late 70’s / early 80’s while we taking undergraduate degrees. Sadly, as we pursued our lives after University we gradually grew more distant.
But when we met up it was like we just parted last weekend, pretty intense. The time didn’t matter. The distance didn’t matter. And I think they felt the same way.
I’m pushing for another meetup, this time to include others from that era, and I’m pusing hard that we all do this before the end of the year. 7 years ago
