Some Comments on Reconnecting with People from the Past

Since I have been on the internet in the mid 1990s, I have reconnected with several people from my past. It has been easier to find old "friends" through Facebook and make "friends" with them again. Some comments:
  • I have avoided contacting people who were close friends years ago. I am thinking of two people from my CCNY days. I found their e-mail addresses, but never contacted them.
  • I never reconnected with any of the girls I dated. I did find two of them on Facebook
  • Most of my reconnections were with casual acquaintances back then.
  • Most of my reconnections were very brief. I exchanged a few e-mails and then the contact just died out. I can think of one person from high school (he may still read this journal) with whom I reconnected online and have maintained contact for several years.
  • I have been friends with Roy for 42 years since we graduated from high school. He is on e-mail, but almost all of my contact with him has been through the telephone.
