How do you usually keep contact with your roomates or classmates?

Well, I graduated from college 4 years ago. I did have a good relationship with my roomates that time. And we kept in touch with each other in the first two years after graduation. We talked about jobs, salaries, love, marriage or just made complaints etc. That was good. But I don't know from when the contacts among us are less and less. Sometimes eventhough when we are both online, we don't talk to each other as before. Maybe we just don't know how to start discussions without the same life experience. Now the most thing we do is texting some blessing messages when festival comes. How are your experiences at this?

We are in different cities now and don't have many chances to get together. Maybe we can try to have a small roomates-party and then know about each other more.

i keep in contact with my classmates, roomates, friends through virtual chatting and interaction like yahoo messenger or facebook, we also text each other when we have time... sometimes we go to outings and eat together, our bond is great.

hi:) I communicate with my high-school classmates through facebook and text messages, but some also are like your friends that even if I could see them online they don't even bother to say hi, but maybe they are waiting also for me to start the conversation, but I'm shy. :( sad but maybe they already have a new life and friends, so old friends don't matter anymore *sigh*:(

Yah, sometimes I saw they were online and started a convesation first, but just like how are you doing recently, how's your job etc. We don't know what to talk anymore, just keep quiet or send a smile express.

Yes, it seems that the longer since we graduated, the more difficult for us to talk.

Me and my friends still have contacts with each other..but we do not talk or text a lot but we sometimes go out if we have our extra time.. just like last sunday we visited one of my friends at their house because she just have her first baby.. i think everything changes evn our relations to our friends but still we are concern with them and still treats them as friends,.

Usually we communicate trough cellphone and social network like facebook. Sometime when one of us celebrate a birthday, we usually get together if there any chances. In our second and third year after graduation we talk about our career or Job, salary, our experiences. We laugh together and have some fun. But now, after five years, we talked about our family, baby, and even our career path. Thanks to modern invention cause we didn't loose communicating each other.

I keep up with friends who I usually don't get to see or text much anymore though Social Networking sites such as Facebook. They post pictures of their famililes and it make its so much easier to comment on each others status's and photo's and such. It also makes it much easier to invite each other to events such as birthday parties and things of that nature.

yes, it will be better for friends to talk if they know a bit about each other's current status. Good luck.

It's OK. I remembered when I was at the last year of college. I was so busy in doing experiments, preparing graduation papers and finding jobs etc. And then just graduated.
