How do you stay in touch with old friends? Do you have many old friends whom you’ve known for a long time?

Keeping In touch

These days, many of us have friends all over the world, not to mention in different cities and parts of the country. It’s also easier than ever to <a onmousemove="showTooltip(event,'keep in contact, continue to communicate');return false" onmouseout="hideTooltip()" href="javascript:openpop('/lesson_vocab/list/5269?context=default','6548', '400', '400');">stay in touch</a> with people, no matter how far away they live.

But even with email and <a onmousemove="showTooltip(event,'online community; website where you meet people');return false" onmouseout="hideTooltip()" href="javascript:openpop('/lesson_vocab/list/5269?context=default','13499', '400', '400');">social networking sites</a> to help you keep track of your friends, staying in touch takes effort and loyalty on both sides.

i can't agree anymore. Frienship is a mutual thing.  I used to measure  friendship by time, and believed that time could be the best thing to keep friendship well, but actually, environments, woks, new social lives could greatly change a person. so as you said, even though we can stay in touch with friends by internet or phone, it never get better than meet each other and talk face to face.

I don't have many old friends, and for some reason i couldn't stay in touch with a childhood friend, in the last 6 years. I found strange the fact that in the time we were sending letters to each other, we could perfectly keep writting, but when we started trying emailing we failed and now i don't talk anymore with her...so, even it's "easier" with internet, it doesn't mean we'll can talk forever with someone, that's what i think.

I have many "old" friends and maintain our relationships in two ways: meeting at least once a year and get in touch with e-mail, social network and Internet (skype):)))))
