I don't think I am guilty of that. But those things are really happening. Sometimes people get too busy with their work, family and new friends... and unintentionally neglecting their old friends. I think the problem is on time management...

I have a very best friend that has been a great friend for 15 years now. We used to live in Michigan and 7 years ago moved away to Florida because of better job opportunities. My friend stayed in Michigan. Although it is hard to maintain a long distance friendship, we did so and visited each other for vacations twice a year for 2 weeks at a time, also we have unlimited long distance on our phones and called each other each weekend and talked for ours until I went into a deep depression. So deep that I couldn't get out of bed, had no interest in anything, even chatting with Joz (my bestest friend in the world. This went on for a year and a half. I was put on several different kinds of antidepressants...thankfully during this time my husband kept Joz updated on what was going on. So, yes we lost touch completely during this time. When I finally came out of this depression, the first thing I did was call Joz. We talked for 5 hours, actually I talked and cried and apologized and she listened and cried for me and accepted my appology. At that time we made a promise to each other. No matter what the other is going through we must at least to call to let the other know whats going on and promised to help each other through whatever was going on. She continues to be my BFF and always will be. In fact she will be here this November 10 for two weeks. We both have a guest room that we save just for each other. The guest room is ready for her arrival and so am I!!!

I'm not really good at making friends so the same friends I had in high school and middle school are my friends today.

it is a very common thing . we make new friends and accept new concepts ,share new feeling. but this do not mean ignoring old ones .they are still in our heart . i think it will be ok if we put them in our hearts and memory .at the same time they will make new friends too.

I like meeting new friends, from places all over the world too. And, that's also an excellent value of myLot community. I do try my best to keep in touch with old friends, though I don't get to see them as often as I would very much like to. Email has been the way to keep in touch. We some times write letters by snail mail, for places and friends who do not have the internet facility.

I feel guilty whenever I realise that I am forgetting my old friends. Whenever I think I'm on the wrong track, I try to make it up to them and let them feel how much I value them..
