In the past year I have reconnected with 2 people I hadn't seen in 10-15 years. One happened unexpectedly. It was great! The other was a person I had been trying to get in touch with for a couple years. And, I finally found her. It happened to my dad once, too. One of his buddies from the Marines found him on the internet. He had thought this guy was dead. Has this ever happened to you? Have you ever found old friends?

Just about a year ago a friend I haven't seen in about 10 years found me on myspace. She was my childhood friend from kindergarten until 5th grade. At that time my family moved a couple of states away. I never expected to talk to her again!

Isn't that wonderful? And, it wouldn't be possible without the internet.

NO.Not really. Sometimes i will meet some old friends from primary school. But they all seems like already forget about me. I'm so shy and don't want to be shame. So i didn't talk to them.

That's pretty sad. You should talk to them. You might enjoy it.

I have a few old friends that I've reconnected with through myspace. One of my brothers college friends that I was friend with got in touch with me awhile back. He was in town last month so we had dinner together. I found a couple of other friends that I hadn't seen in 5 - 10 years as well. It was pretty cool to get back in touch with those people.

It's surprising to me when I find people I haven't talked to in such a long time.

Hello myfanwy65, Yes it had happened to me. I have found an old friend before which I have seen for almost 10 years. I found him through a friend who happens to pass him by at a town outside our city and got his number. Its been 2 years now and since then every year we would have reunion at least once with all my close friends. Its a nice feeling whenever you find and see old close friend that you haven't sen for quite a long time. Now I am still searching for one and still wondering where he is. :-)
