I have a lost friendship like that that I lose sleep over. I met this girl when I was in second grade and she was in first. We reconnected in high school and were best friends throughout, but grew apart during college. I moved to a few different states and got married and she never left home and can't seem to find the right guy. I suppose I could strike it back up again online, but... I don't. And I hate it that I don't.


I think what's interesting is that so many of us can relate to such friendships. Sometimes we reconnect with these people, but most often we do not. And you are right when you ask do they loose sleep over it? Do they think of our friendship? Friendship is a two way street, and I believe for it to work it has to come from both sides a little. Maybe that's my reason for not trying to reconnect anymore.

Reading this post is another "Bolt out of the Blue" (BOB) demonstration of why you should write books. This post reads like a teaser for the back cover that forces you to but the book and read it.


It can be sad to lose friends, part ways, move on but what I realize now, with FB, is that 90 percent of the time, there is no chance that reaching out is going to do anything other than perhaps let people move on themselves. If you've already moved on, this may not be necessary for you. For me personally, I do miss certain friends but I've had so many experiences that are so different than what they had, that we can't connect on anything OTHER than high school/college. So,I'd say, if you are interested, do it. But don't be yourself up if you aren't. Chances are a few emails is all it would be and then you'd both move on.


Dear Old Warrior...I was thinking the exact same thing!!!!
