    Just thinking about the friends i've had some fairly recent, some past, that just one day you realised you haven't seen them in a while, and then you never see them again. what happened to them? is never really knowing supposed to help you forget?

    For me, unfortunately not. I'm kind of emotional about old friends. I like to know what happened to them. I say unfortunately because it seems they are not as interested in knowing what happened to me, in general. I've made contact with a few who I knew how to contact and it went well with some.

    Some said they had no time to catch up. Maybe their marriages are crumbling, i don't know...but these were pretty good friends. Well, times are tough right now, but to me...that means that old friends should try and stick together and like I said it was great with a few, but for the most part, they didn't seem to care much...almost like we were never friends at all.

    Yeah, I've lost a lot of friends I kinda want to get in touch with again.
    But it's like Mike said...
    I don't really know if they'd want to hear from me again.
    I'll never forget about them though.

    I would HATE to meet old friends. I have 3 friends. My brother, a friend from college and my wife. That's way enough. I also have 3 kids. To be honest, I don't ever want a friend. Contact with people makes me nervy and self conscious and paranoid. It has taken me 25 years to acknowledge that. My goal in life, jez I've just put it in writing for the first time... is to be alone in the garden with the sun shining and cutting grass with a scissors, knowing my kids are ok.:sad:

    Everyone I've let go up to this point was cut off for a good reason, so I hope they don't return. However, I feel myself drifting away from good people that I care about, all due to feeling unworthy of their affection. How do I ask them to stay?
