Do you keep in touch with old friends?
It happens in everybody’s life, when they graduate, move, or find a new job, and they leave friends behind. Or perhaps, it’s the friends who leave you behind.
I rarely make any special effort to keep in touch with old friends, as I tend to think that new friends are just as good and easier to find. Nonetheless, I sometimes meet up with old friends. There was a group from undergrad who would hold board game nights for several years after we graduated. There’s another group graduated from my current university doing the same thing. There was the childhood friend who I met with several times after he ran into my mother. I also enjoy chance run-ins.
Sometimes, awkwardly, some old friends put a lot more effort into it than I do. I’m never really sure what to say about that. I’ll meet people part way but I’m not going to force it.
