Unfortunately, that's also been my experience: out of sight, out of mind. Or something I said a few months ago: The first to be forgotten, the last to be remembered.

It's really sad that some people say one thing and do the exact opposite. As well as what you've

One would think that with all the technology (email, Facebook) that people would be better at keeping in touch. Even a quick hello. Everyone claims to be soooo busy, with their lives they forget about their old friends. I admit I'm not the best either at keeping in touch. Our lives sometimes takes different routes and we tend to invest more time in the people who are in our presence. I haven't moved far away in a long time, but I have changed jobs. The same sort of thing has happened to me, where some of my old friends just dropped off the face of the earth.

mizani, you have nothing to feel foolish about (although I fully understand what you’re talking about).

I moved away after college and a lot of my friends and I got reconnected 2 years ago at our 20th reunion. They are pretty bad about keeping in touch. I try, but I can be lax about it too.

Cheer up! that is how friendships go sometimes. some friendships are seasonal as one poster explained. maybe you both hated your boss as one of the other posters said and that is what brought you together, you know what i mean. Sometimes you hardly keep in touch with friends, but when you talk, you still feel a sense of closeness. i have reconnected with friends and schoolmates who i haven't seen for ages through Facebook. These friends reside overseas and i live in the Caribbean. We keep in touch via Facebook mostly and i called some of them for Christmas. you find that when some friends migrate as in the case of these persons, it is hard to keep in touch. so facebook helps in that respect. i have two close friends from highschool who are not on facebook. they don't like it (facebook that is)and they live overseas. We e-mail once in a while. One of them, the last time i spoke to her was in January. i heard from her recently and i will call both of them tomorrow to wish them happy new year. i know its gonna be a long chat with them.

I feel your pain. The same thing is happening to me. I moved a few months ago and it's like I never existed to my friends back home. There seems to be an attitude of, 'well, she decided to
