Have you found old classmates or other friends using any of the contact sites that are out there now? I recently contacted someone for whom I was a nanny nearly forty years ago! It was amazing exchanging news again after so long ( we'd lost contact after moves and a divorce) Sites like classmates and friendreunited are fun Do you belong? have you found an old friend?

yeah i have got ahold of numorous people i have lost contact with on the internet. the day my daughter was being born at the hospital, a friend of mine contacted me on myspace. we were friends from about 5 years old till we were 18 and had lost touch once he moved. so that was really cool to finally be back in touch with him.

The internet may have killed snail mail but it does make it so easy to find people who would otherwise be lsot forever.

I joined myspace and facebook. Myspace didn't get me anyone really, but with facebook I found friends from elementary school and even a girl I was friends with when I was about three or four. It's really cool to be able to find your old friends and see what they are up to.

Facebook which I signed up with quite recently is brilliant for keeping in vague contact with a lot of people - which in my situation living in another country to my "home" It's great for the one liners when you can't manage a whole letter or email.

Yes. I signed up for one site and ended up being contacted by 3 of my old friends. Funny thing was...they were all ex-boyfriends. I haven't been contacted by any of my female friends. Ah well. It is definitely neat to be able to catch up and reminisce a bit. Probably won't hear from the again. But the experience is still cool.
