Hello there, I mean those people that i have met with in real life. it's been years since i have met up with them. the last time they try to proposed a reunion but i declined because i didn't have the money. and i didn't want them to see me unemployed as they all have jobs,among the four of us only one made a dream come true in starting a business. I still think of what i should choose in my life, but for now, i just miss my friends. do you miss your friends outside mylot.?

Holly refrigerator ! What the frog have to do the that you were unemployed while others not ? Having a money limit is one, but just fact you feel strange you have not a job in that moment is not a reason not to go. At contrary, is a way to prove them you belong to the group: you are short on money BUT you won't let that to stop you to meet friends. I mean they should appreaciate your effort ... And beside all, who knows ? Maybe exactly because you were unemployed at the time maybe would have give to one of them an idea to help you short or long term (with a job or something) Don't sit and think what to do. Start doing someting. Why / because if you (as example) start fihing and later think is digging what you wanna do, is simply a shiting from fishing to digging. Else, would be a START, and to start is ... really difficult, making you wonder 'is it this sure what I want to do?' and instead to start you keep stay and think .. And time does not stop ..

Hello wmraul, because that part of me is also saying, it ain't worth my time, because am just another guy to them. frankly, i also don't want to see them, as i have move on even though sometimes i miss them. i don't think they can help me, they never did, except for one but i don't think he's reliable now. me being unemployed has everything to do with meeting other people, coz i don't like being asked where am i now, where do i work now? what's the salary...

yup..each and every one of them..since i'm not the outgoing type of person,i have very little friends to begin with..close friends i mean,and most of them are not in country currently,gone to further their studies.However,we have this annual meeting each year,spending a day or two in places that we can afford. maybe you can start this type of activities as well..or just hang out at the mall..window shopping,watching movies or just go picnic-ing..it's fun!

i do miss all my friends especially my friend in elementary. she is jen and we are so close since we were in grade 4 but something happened that i can't remember why our friendship ended up that way. until we graduated in elementary and we parted our ways in high school. I've got my own life and she's got her own too but yet we really don't have communication to each other. I've realized that neglecting a friend like jen would be a big mistake because she's a friend that deserves to be treasure. well, as of now I'm just so happy because i have found her one of this social network. I add her up and luckily she adds me in her account and i'm so happy that's she doing great. what i really like about what she said to me in her message is that our friendship is unending and irreplaceable. and that will be the sign for a new beginning for our friendship.

hello there, i remember those times that my college friends use to hang out in the mall or eat in a rice puddy fast food, which was a lot more fun every after school or exam. but some how, things didn't do well in the later part, friends come and go but i do miss them sometimes, it's just not the same anymore.

I do. I do miss my friends, especially when I get reminded of them on certain situations like, hearing a joke, feeling happy about it and then get reminded of the same feeling when a friend that delivered a good joke as well. Perhaps when you are just walking outside and you see a group of friends go by, you would end up recalling your own group of friends when you too walked with them to some destination. A lot of things can actually remind you of friends and being reminded just means that you can't forget them. I do try to meet with my friends every now and then, like whenever I have time, I guess I'd just communicate with them online or send text messages to see if any of us could be available on a particular time. As my colleague once told me, it takes effort. I'd add that effort from everyone involved in that particular friendship.

Yes I do. I moved away from Los Angeles, and when I go back there I just don't have time to see everybody. And it's not often enough too.

I do not missed my friends. I am in a loser mode this days and I don't need people who do not reply to my messages. They don't really care for me why would I care for them. If they are succesful with their life that is good, I am bitter now then its, still I don't care what is happening on them, and when I see them one day on the street , I will not even look at them nor greet them but ignore them and be happy with my life after. Those are my friends that text you when they are happy like they are dying with happiness, but when you text them and ask for their help it is like they lost their cellphone. Shame on you, maybe it is wrong to meet them anyway.

Hey Letran! I know that it is difficult when your friends have a job and you don't! I am not working either and some of my friends are and some aren't. I am on disability right now and so are a few of my friends so I don't have the money to spend to go out like some of them and I feel badly about it. But, I can still see them if I want to! And that shouldn't stop you from seeing your friends too! If they are true friends then they will understand!

Friends don't care whether or not you have a job. THat is what makes them friends. I say give it a shot. You miss them. They should know that.

I miss them so bad but they have totally different lives than mine. we had great memories that are beginning to fade. the kind of foolishness we did was beyond whats necessary and thats maybe why we had to part ways. some of them appear on facebook but i think they have forgotten me so i dont try to make contact further.

I have some friends that are away from me, and I miss them. I wanted to propose a reunion, like you said, but that is very hard because you have to plan and confirm the reunion, and such. I usually like reunions, but when my friends, including myself, are enjoying ourselves.

Actually no since we always meet at least once a week. You really should allot time for them. Why don't you set up another reunion so you are sure that you're free this time? Or you can meet 1 or 2 of your friends then do some stuff.

You know...I do...I hardly have any time for friends in the ‘real world’ these days. I meet a friend for lunch once a fortnight and my other friends I fit in whenever I can and it’s not often enough because I can’t afford to go out like I used to. I have not even come across reunions of any kind! I am sorry you could afford to go to your reunion; you should not feel ashamed of not having a job, real friend couldn’t care less about that sort of thing, it is you they should want to see! If they are any different they are not worth missing. Perhaps you could give an old friend a call and take it from there...

I meet my close friends from time to time. Shopping, watching movies, going KTV and BBQ on the weekend. In fact, if you are the real friends, they will not look down you. you needn't to have a trouble. when we grow up, more and more people leave and I'd better cherish the friends around me!

should have gone to the reunion. If they are your true friends than they would not have judge you for not having a job or achieving your dreams. I do miss my friends, they are all in another country, and even though we email and chat online it's still not the same as seeing them in person is it? I think you should save up some cash an arrange a reunion.
