I lost touch with some friends but with some of them I still keep in touch

Well, I keep in touch with few old friends. When we finished high school, we all took different paths, this was thirteen years ago. Recently, my friends originated a meeting, but I was traveling and I couldn't go.

Really not, I have a long time that I don't have any contact with my Frinds of University, My old best Friend lives in Australia, two years ago he was in my city but I couldn't see him.

for a couple of months I have met with a classmate of the university.
last time we saw him at least, was twenty years ago!
I think how time flies!
He lives in another city and he's a bit overweight and doesn't appear his age.We talked a lot about diferent things and our families.
It was nice to meet .

2 years ago, I was walking in the street in Spania and I saw an old friend whose I played rugby with him 15 years ago. I was very happy to meet him and discuss about his life. We have been ages and many white hairs. It was touching.

Do you keep in touch with old friends?

About 35 years ago, when I was studying at university had a roommate that we were very friendly together. After graduation, he went to Canada and married a Chinese lady, and I had no news of him. Recently. I found him on LinkedIn, and we did chat together.


Five years ago, I met an old friend from the Haute Ecole Normale de Nivelles. Jean-Marie was my best friend. He lived in Brittany where he spent his retirement. And I for eight years, I have lived in the south of France in "AUDE" where I also spend my retirement. A year later, during his vacation not far from my home, he came to see me with all his family.
What a beautiful day we spent remembering the beautiful moments we spent together. Alas today, this old friend has passed away. I had a lot of pain. I often have a thought for him.

I keep in touch with one of my old friends.
we are the best friends and we travel with each other from time to time. it’s so interesting to remind the best period of our life sometimes, that could be a nostalgia.
we were at high school together. We remember the other friends and reminds nice memories we feel sympathy as we talk about how our rights were lost at the time of university entrance exam because of the inaccurate arrangements that some people are given special privileges.

Since 2015 I have ever seen my best friend. He went to Bobo-Dioullaso when I was taking my high school diploma exam and I went to Algeria at fall 2015. It is really a long time. I miss him and I hope that we will enjoy our next meeting at summer 2020. So exciting to be with my bestie.
