I've just reconnected with an old acquaintance.. and it's nice... This guy I met about three years ago at a festival, friend of a friend.. ended up exchanging epic emails for about a year... but only ever caught up in a social scenario once (I kept ditching him and his friend).. but then we kind of lost touch when he hooked up with this girl.. only exchanging the odd texts, from say, when I was in Thailand over xmas and he was in Boston in the snow... ANYWAY - I cc'd him into a group email and received back the most lovely long reply from him - he's a very very witty guy - and now we are back in touch! It's very platonic... he has a GF now and at the time I met him, I had a BF... Sorry, just wanted to share, but isn't it wonderful when you reconnect with people after a time apart?
Do you make a conscious effort to stay in touch with people who you DON'T know from the net?
I actively do, although the last six months of my life, I have been exceptionally lazy in this department - I blame my move to east London, myspace, DiS, and spending my time blabbering to you lot ;-) xx
