Are you about to go off to college? Or maybe you and your family have just moved and you are starting a new school? Lots of situations arise where you are forced to make new friends, which is a great thing! That’s what we are all about here at Friends.com! However, it’s important to stay in touch and maintain your old friendships as well!
While moving to a new town or starting a new school can be traumatic, the only way to successfully cope is to make new friends! Making new friends is the easy part (we do have a whole site devoted to it!) but it’s a little harder keeping in touch with your old ones! Especially initially, it is very important to put in the extra effort when keeping up with your old friends. That extra phone call or text message to say you are thinking about them will really make a difference!
Making a special effort to visit your old friends is important. Whether you are close enough to visit once a month, or only once a year it’s important to make those visits count! We are sure you’ll find your friendships just as easy and wonderful as when you saw each other every day! Planning a yearly reunion around the holidays or a birthday is always a good idea! It gives you something to look forward to, making your time apart seem shorter!
When you off having fun with your new friends (which you should be doing!) don’t forget about the old ones. You had great times with them too, and don’t forget to remind them about those great memories once in a while too!
