Amazing how one small, innocent thing can make you feel just how cut off you are from people that were friends. Makes you realize you weren't the kind of friends you might have thought. This is not a terrible thing, just drives the point home. I'm not mad at the slight, as it was done without malice or intent, in my opinion. Just really made me go "huh, yeah, I guess that's how it is." I take my part of the responsibility for it, too; I'm not the best at keeping up with people, and I can't expect people to just consider me any kind of real friend when I don't go out of my way to contact them. Note that this make me appreciate those that DO still consider me a close friend, as it shows what i mean to them, and why what they mean to me what they do.

Anyway, that's how it goes.

Aw thanks, doll. It's not nearly as big a deal as this made it sound, just one of those things that hits ya.

I've experienced this with my friends from my hometown, over the years that I've been in Portland. While three of them stay in contact, the rest seem to have vanished. Some of it is also my fault, of course, but it's interesting to see who your real friends are, and who were more by association/acquaintance.

Kind of how I feel about Phoenix friends...there are only a few that go out of their way to message or contact me by (gasp) phone!


Dude, you're missed...I had a bad movie night on Saturday and I commented that the thing that would make the night even better, was, if you were there.

And I'm shitty at keeping in touch too...I sent you a Gchat message the other day; haven't seen you on...?

Haven't been logging into chat as much lately, but no, didn't see a message from ya.

Hope the movies were terrible!

It's always kinda bothered me that we don't seem to be able to maintain a long distance friendship - even though when I came to visit after 10 years, it was as if no time had passed.

I know what you mean. It's weird (though good) that we rarely keep in touch, but when we do, there's no catch-up or weirdness, it's just like it always was. I think that says something pretty deep.

So, we'll just get together in another 10 years. ;)

It makes me so sad to lose friends, but over time, I have gotten used to it. Unfortunately.
BUT- you are not getting rid of me that easily! I consider us to be internet BFF's. LOL.

That is always good to know. I know it appears that I have dropped off of the face of the earth. I am alive at least. I am just incredibly busy and have no life it seems.
