She is my good friend from college. In the past I always greeted her happy birthday today by SMS. Sometimes I will leave her comments in her social apps. As time goes by, I think she has changed. Such as she has never greeted my birthday by any kind of methods. And she also has never replied to my comments. So perhaps I think it is time for me to leave from her life because we all have different kinds of lives. And we are also busy with ours. I will not send SMS today although it is her birthday. It doesn't matter that there will be without my greeting. She shall has friends and family who will greet her happy birthday today.

I know you are right, but I just let it go. I am not sure whether she expects to my greeting.

It happened with me too. Some of the friends which I considered very dear to me didn't wish me on my birthday. I have always been wishing them. I guess they are busy now

I think if a friend who really cares about you, he/she can always squeeze the time.

I don't think so. In fact I just think it is alright to keep in touch sometimes and that's all. After all, we were good friends and we even had a travel together in the past.

@youless my friends contact me once in a while to have get-togethers, then after that, long stretch of no communication. so when they decide to meetup, we drop everything and go.

Yes, time change people. I too wished a friend almost every year but once I didn't due to some other reasons (not forgotten). That time she too not wished me (my bday comes after her). I felt bit bad, people only respond on us what we do for them. Then I stopped wishing her, I remember her birthday well. But I don't really need wishes from such friends.

But I had kept sending her birthday greetings and important festival greetings for years. There is no response. I left comments to her social apps when I learned from her status. There is no response, too. So I think I may have to leave as she may not even regards me as a friend.

@youless I understand your points. neglecting something we can't tolerate. It is really great of you, you keep on sending wishes for long time.

Nothing to lose if you still greet her, perhaps she has valid reasons. Send her red envelope in Wechat

Sometimes it will make me a little upset because I pay attention to the friendship.

if you've left comments, messages, greetings all these years and she never acknowledged them, or did the same, then maybe she won't even notice when you stop doing it for good.
