I keep in touch with my 2 friends since we were 6 years old child. Because we are the best friends. I also communicate with my university mates. They are closer than my classmates. Actually I graduated university 3 years ago. It is not such a long time. It can be the main cause of keeping in touch still. I wish I will converse with them for the rest of my life.

Yes but only by msg from WhatsApp. Unfortunatelly.

Unfortunately living down under New Zealand doesn't make keeping in touch with old friends easy. Thanks to social media we are able to know what old friends have been up to or have become and viewing their photos. I recently had a visit of a friend I haven't seen since we were 5 years old. We are now both married and have kids. Our children got on really well. We spent a whole week talking about the good old days at Primary school and our friends in the area where we grew up.

every task that I open have give me this
" refused to connect."

is this something wrong? or its just me?

not really, I have rarely meet with them

Yes, I am. The old is gold, with old friends you can enjoy to remember the childish and interesting things you did in past. I want to share my experience of a get together on last to last monday with my college roommate and off-course very close friend (SID). I visited on his flat and we enjoyed the memories of college time that how we passed our college time. We both felt sad to share that now we have money but no time to enjoy with friends. I shared my love life with Sid and made him realize how complicate is inter-religion marriage in INDIA. On the roof of house we sit on a folding bed and enjoyed our beer, We enjoyed our beer and conversation about personal and professional life approx. 2 hours.

It's a good lesson.

for the first time i can answer all the questions correctly.. very nice..
