Twice a year

Canada
February 17, 2011 4:39pm CST
Is the only time I talk to one of my friends. I call her on her birthday and we talk for about an hour or more and then she calls me on my birthday and thats it for the rest of the year. I usually listen to what she has to say because I dont have much to tell. What can you talk about when you havent been this close. I dont think of her as my friend anymore even though we were brought up together. She never got married and every time I talk about something, she always acts as if its not important. Do you have "friends" like this? Would you stop calling or you would still do once a year?

I think it depends on how you feel and what you think about your friend's situation. If you like calling her and receiving calls from here, then I would suggest to just keep it up. Also, if your friend seems to be a bit desperate for attention, "clingy," or in need of some love, keep calling. It is only twice a year, so it wouldn't be too big of a deal. If your friend doesn't seem to be like that, then it is up to how you feel.

I think its okay for you to still have constant communication with her. After all, she has been your longed friend.

I had a friend like this I stopped calling and so did she. The sad part was the only thing she wanted to talk about was cheating on her husband. She wanted me to visit her and bring one of her lovers with me. To stay at the hotel and she tell her husband she was staying with me. That was a super no no for me. So,she said to me he will come by hisself anyway. Well good for you whoree,you will need an excuse to be with him. It would not be me.

Im so sorry she tried to use you and not enjoy the time she could have had with you. I have a feeling she's NOT on your friends list anymore! Thanks for sharing!

Life sometimes brings us closer together and sometimes farther apart. I have had friends like that too and we called each other only once a year, too. I even had friends I stopped talking too. And then all of a sudden there is an incident or something going on in life and you enjoy talking more again.-With some friends it is as if I just had seen them yesterday we start talking as if nothing happened. I would keep it up. It is good to have friends which are so loyal that they call you and remember your birthday even if life made you drift apart a little.

I think everyone moves on in life, I have done the same thing with a long time friend, we take different roads in life and we all get different interests and then grow a part, that is life, even just being there if needed can be a friend.

You're right, we sure grow apart. I know Id be there for her if she needed me, I can only hope she would be also. Thanks!
