Here's my situation. Back when I was in grade 11, I fell into an addiction known as "World of Warcraft" and stopped hanging out with my friends. I didn't purposefully reject any offers that they made to me to hang out, its just that I never put forth any effort into seeing them (after school ended, I would just go home and play for a couple hours, do my homework, and go to sleep) so I guess they just didn't bother to invite me to whatever they were doing.Fast forward to my sophomore year of college. I've made a new circle of friends in college, but to be honest, I still really attached to my old circle of friends. Over the course of 3.5 years, I might have seen a couple with them a few times and exchanged a couple of "hey long time no see" short conversations. I have made a new MSN account (because my old email address was kiddish) but felt a little bit awkward in readding them if I didn't have any intention of talking to them.The point is, I really want to catch up with them on how they're doing, and get close enough to them that we could start hanging out again just like old times but I'm not sure what my course of action is. Should I re-add them on MSN and start talking to them, or shall I use Facebook as a means of communication (I still have them as my list of friends on there) or something else? I don't feel comfortable using the phone right now even though it is the most direct form of communication there is (besides face to face of course)Thanks
How do I restart a friendship with old friends?
There's nothing better than face-to-face. It's difficult to keep high-school friendships after you finish school unless you see each other regularly. Otherwise they end up as the "long time no see" conversations that end with "we must get together sometime soon" - but it doesn't happen.
If I were in you I would plan a party and send them invitations (through email)..........it would be really nice for everyone to get together :wink: ..........later on you could start hanging out again with your high school buddies.
