    I had to say goodbye to 2 good buddies tonight, one a good gay bud and another a straight bud from long ago. I actually got to hang out with both though neither was ever friends before. It was nice to see them and get to share some brews. I hate saying goodbye for many months at a time, but it's how it goes I know.

    On a side note, my alcoholic once-best-friend decided to start hitting me out of the blue at a bar. I played it cool but it was certainly some $hitty behavior.

    Anybody else have to say goodbyes recently? I'm not too broken up, just kind of bummed at the moment and bored so I figured I'd share.

    That's the primary reason I seldom get close to people anymore (occasionally, but not often).
    People come and go way too much, and keeping up via internet and phone just isn't the same as hanging out in real life.

    At least you had a chance to say "good-bye"...
    In the last few months, I have lost TWO guys that I was REALLY close to... or so I thought.
    The first one just finally gave up trying to salvage anything from a "relationship" that probably should have never started to begin with..
    The second one was just last week. After six months of DAILY communication which lead up to a face to face meeting, the guy decided that I was "insecure".. and stopped ALL communication with me.
    It would have been nice to say "good-bye" to both of these guys.. but I'll never get the chance now. . icon_sad.gif

    I have been through this before when I was younger bouncing from Argentina, Japan, and Hawaii. I think technology has made it a little easier in terms of Skype and Facebook so you can remain in much better contact and ''see'' that person until the physical meeting.

    I am however sad and nervous to say goodbye to my friends and family here in Argentina next month as I head to the Middle East as I'm going to be completely alone (prior goodbyes were countered by warm welcomes from family and friends), and the fact that I'll be in intensive training for a good 8 weeks with limited to no online contact icon_sad.gif.
