Say goodbye to your friends because you are moving to a new place

It is a hard decision to make when you have to move to a new place to start over again. Especially you have to move because of your new job. You might see your best friends and good friends less and less. The only time you have probably on the holidays. I just move to a new place for my job, and I really don't know anyone here yet. I just miss my friends back in my hometown. Probably I might make some friends here, but at the meantime, I really miss them. Did anyone of you here feel the same?

yes, i felt it. It's really hard to go to other place, especially if you go to place where you needed to ride a plane and leave your friends. Because you will miss the everyday discussion or conversations or any get together with friends. I even felt its like end of the world when going to other place without friend. though we know we can meet other new friends from far away.

I'm one of the few people that actually likes moving around and making new starts. While I do miss my friends, I find it easy to move on when I have to because I'm so independent and don't like to be tied down to the one place for too long. I see it as an adventure, and as a result, have had many great experiences. I packed up three years ago and left Australia and spent two years in China. I'm now back in Australia, but am open to moving again for work or travel.

I havent moved away from family or friends, however I have them move it is just as hard. My daughter moved to Florida with our grandbaby and I miss them all the time. Good news is she is coming up for a visit soon for a month and a half! WE are all so excited! I know that when she leaves thou I again will miss her so much. *sigh*

I moved from one continent (Asia) to another continent (Europe). I did cry at times, when I thought about my old friends, but now, three years on, I am glad that I moved. I didn't know anyone over here, but I have made new friends, friends who mean more to me than many of my other friends did.

yes i felt like this when i left my school and went to high school inother city. But i want to say that friends are for life time.We never break fraiendship to anyone.Ones person becomes our friends then he or she will be our friend for life time.I studied two years in highschool and when i went back to hometown everything was normall. I didnt feel like i misses friend. So friends are for life time.

Oh it would be a hard time. I have been staying at this place for the past 8 years and all my friends live in the vicinity of my home, so I don't really have to travel far to meet them. But now we have to shift because of professional reasons and I' wondering how it would be to go to a new place and make new friends. I know making new friends sounds exciting, but I'm not sure I would find a group as great as the one I'm with. Looking forwards for this strange experience. bourne

hi pal!!! Its always hard time to say good bye. But don't ever say it. Just say will meet again. Because you will meet because of fate. There is one Indian movie Kabhi albida na kehna based on this. It's really a touching movie. cheers buddy

completely...I was in the airforce for a few years and in that time i had to get PCS'd to different bases. It is hard to leave everything you know to go somewhere just to start completely fresh. But if you just keep a positibe attitude about the whole situation you will realize you can hang out with the people you work with and meet the people they hang out with and just kind of network off of that. and you never know, it could be a blessing in disguise

It is hard saying goodbye to friends. And for me I have to say that life to me is like chapters, and with each new chapter comes new friends to go with it. Just because you are moving doesn't mean that you have to forget about them, or lose touch with them. The good old way to stay in contact would be the old pen and paper, and the phone. Next would be the internet: twitter; myspace; mylot; ect. Or make the monthley visit back for lunch and dinner. Just because you say goodbye doesn't mean you have to leave them behind. Stay in touch. :)
