Staying in Touch with Friends
It's interesting to me:
Some people complain about me not staying in touch. And I know that some people don't complain but are a bit sad about it or feel offended.
So what is it that makes someone feel sad or offended?
What does it really mean if I (and perhaps people in general) "don't stay in touch"?
So I have those friends who I don't mail or talk to simply because our bond is not strong enough.
Then there are those friends who I mail or talk to simply because they somehow "force me" to stay in touch (or I am too Iranian to be impolite).
The majority are good friends that I don't mail or talk to regularly... only when there is really something going on... not the common superficial chat... but if we ever do I'm really happy about it...
Then there is very few of my very closest friends that I stay in touch with... a bit...
Finally, there is quite some very very close friends or people I highly respect or have experienced something special with, whom I hardly ever mail or talk to. To some of them I haven't talked to in years and to some of them I might never talk to again!
What does it say about our friendship?
Or maybe: "We share that special thing we do so there is no need to prove it!"
