This past week I’ve had two different people from my past make contact with me. An old neighbor spotted me on Facebook and reached out to me via Messenger. We had a brief back and forth exchange and that was it. The other was a coworker from a previous employer. She added me on LinkedIn. I reached out to her via LinkedIn’s messaging system and again, there was a brief exchange and that was it.
Kind of disappointing on both counts. I would really like to reconnect with both these folk and see how their life is going but they seem content with just superficial contact. They just wanted to know that I was still out there somewhere… and that’s it. So much for social networking. 🙂
That’s okay. I’m glad to know they’re both still out there somewhere too.
