I heard from an old friend, she calls me every year around my birthday and I am always surprised until I remember that is when she calls each year. I love to hear from her but each year it become more difficult to find thing in common. Do you have old friends like that?

I can relate to feeling that way. I have a profile in Facebook and a couple of months ago I decided to search for old friends I had lost touch with. I did my search and managed to locate a friend I had not seen for almost 15 years. We used to be quite close and shared a lot at the time. I contacted him via Facebook message, added him to my friends list and we chatted via email, caught up on each other's lives and that's it, nothing left to talk about! It's hard to believe we were such close friends! We haven't emailed for a while now, we don't have anything in common anymore and although it felt sad at first I guess that's life; people go in and out of your life for different reasons and for us this is confirmation that we have both moved in different directions and that's OK!

Hi savypat, I know exactly what you mean as I have friends that I grew up with and rarely see or hear from anymore.We chose different career paths, got married and raised families in different cities or different parts of the same city, in short, we just drifted apart. Now if we happen to meet we can chat for a few minutes but soon realize that we have practically nothing in common anymore. Blessings.
