Friendships are precious, some friendships even dating as far back as school days. Some friends continue living in the same town making it possible for them to often do things together or else spending time for chats. The way of the world today, results with many friendships broken through people moving and living in other countries and not keeping up any contact. Another reason for lack of contact may be fallout over some trivial matter you now regret, but are not sure of how to rectify. In such a case, encouraging them to meet with you face to face, and apologizing, even if you are the one in the right, can end with an amicable result.
Make a point of reconnecting
Nobody really enjoys doing activities on their own and even though time may be limited, making a point to reconnect friendship with pals you seldom see and catching up on news and doing activities together is gratifying for both of you. Arranging to see a movie or a play together or simply meeting for a cup of coffee now and then, is a good way for keeping a friendship alive.
Keep in contact online
Modern times have introduced us to the internet, meaning there are many things you can participate in together with friends online. Among the things to do if you both like having the odd bit of fun with gambling, is to gamble online. You can enjoy many bonuses and free spins offered on the games at the gambling sites, as well as having the feel of being in a live casino.. Another way to rekindle friendships is by remembering special occasions such as birthdays and anniversaries. Sending a card by post or e-mail is a message that is always appreciated by the receiver.
Hear from long lost friends
Use Skype for making phone calls or messaging to long lost friends who have moved country. Their interests and yours may no longer be the same, but it is always good to hear of what has happened to them over the years. Likewise, they will enjoy hearing the stories of what you have been up to as talking is one of the best forms of communication and reconnecting a friendship. Remember that people’s lives have moved on and if you constantly recall past happenings, it may have the tendency to become a boring conversation. Rather keep the tone light and friendly when you first make contact, you can always refer to past occurrences at a later stage when your friendship is reestablished.
Be there for friends who need help
Helping a friend you haven’t seen for a while but you hear is in need is a considerate and kind gesture and a sure way to rekindle an old friendship. In general, there is often an avoidance of people when they need things done for them.
