Why do people lose touch?

Many American people move out of their hometowns after high school.

Our country is so big so you can never guarantee that you’ll be in touch with the same people throughout your life.

We change as people and we get busy.


Phrases to catch up with an old friend:

  • “It’s been so/too long, how have you been? “
  • “I’m sorry I haven’t called to congratulate you!”
  • “I’ve been thinking about you. How are things?”
  • “I’ve really missed you! I’d love to chat more often.”
  • “We should chat more often. It’s so nice to catch up.”
  • “I feel like it’s been forever.”

Pro tip! Be honest about how you feel!
