How do you keep in touch and maintain close friends beyond college?

I met my best friend in college, and we became virtually inseparable from the start. I mean, we went everywhere together, shared everything; our parents accepted us as an extension of their respective families. But then we graduated from college, got married, had our respective careers, and I moved to another city. Now, we see each other about once a year. And I feel as if we are no longer as close as before. We are both so busy at work that we almost have no time to get in touch. How do keep in touch and maintain close friends when you are juggling a demanding career, family and postgrad studies? Any tips you can share?

Friendhsip has to be kept alive in order to feel its warmth. We can arrange for a get together with college friends by sending them email.Even if you dont have all their ids you may have some and them in turn will have some more. I followed this and with the help of my close friends organized a get together which went on successfully. Now we have planned for another get together next month with some fun activities added.

I have a best friend in high school. She now lives in Germany. She married a german citizen. Because of the poverty in our province. She forced herself to marry that German guy. I'm just grateful that she learn to love him. They already had a son. We see each other three years ago. We still have communication through internet by chatting and e-mail. Were still close no matter how far the distance separates us. I really missed her. But I have to accept the fact that our lives are different way back high school life.
