    I'm pretty bad at it, too, although if I happen to run into someone from my past I find it really easy to fall back into our old relationship, even if it's just for the one conversation.

    Facebook definitely helps, though. Sometimes I find myself randomly thinking about someone from my past, and the ability to look the up and send them a quick note makes me feel better about having lost touch in the first place.

    I'm very non-initiative and usually don't try to stay in contact if we don't see eachother everyday or if you (someone... anyone) make me feel safe or something. Honestly, it always feels weird to just stay in touch with someone if I don't really have anything in common with the person in question at that moment. If I don't have anything in common then I would probably want to have figure out some sort of plan (ala intj-style) of what to talk about.

    And well, Eck. I can be a stalker 24/7, loosing grip of reality because I feel so goofy and safe around that person. I might stay in touch with him/her extra much because that person creates a source of refillment of socialenergy or something (energy overall). A problem is though that I usually spend time staying in touch with only 1 person at the time wich may exhaust that person I'm staying in touch with, and makes me socially uncomfortable coming out of a comfort zone I just created and working so hard to sustain. This makes me seem weird to extraverts.

    I profoundly suck at it, though I hate losing touch with past friends. I always try to reconnect, but fail miserably at keeping it up.

    Thank goodness for Facebook. Penpal-ing it wasn't cutting it.

    Too true!

    Count me in as well as being horrible at staying in touch. And I thought I was the only one with screwy Fe.

    To go a step further, I have a problem with suddenly getting in contact with everybody, then very quickly falling completely off the face of the earth.

    I actually did this just two days ago. I wrote to my old best friend, and I see that she called me, but I haven't listened to her message nor called her back. More often, I'll make a Facebook or myspace profile, add a couple dozen people (who are all like 'yay! where've you been?!'), and within a few weeks, I'll delete the account.

    Why do I do this? I'm not really sure, but I have a few thoughts.

    1. I feel the urge to start with a clean slate from the past (and anything that people might know about me)
    2. I realize that my relationships are superficial, so I bail out wanting something more authentic (which is strange because...)
    3. I actually fear intimate relationships


    Pretty weird, I know.

    I'm bad at keeping in touch, and not very proud of it.
    I do try.. But it takes an effort.

    Hello, my name is Sade and I do that too.
    Perhaps for a bit different reasons, but do it none the less. I get this urge to get in touch with people, go out etc. I make an effort to balance it out, to make contact during the 'silent spell' too. And not go full on out when I'm feeling like contacting everyone. Makes me feel less guilty for leaving them hanging when I withdraw again.. But still, sounds very familiar.

    Ditto.

    I feel like my life works in phases where I'll start something and do that for some time, then soon quit it altogether just to move on to the next thing. And when I leave a phase of my life behind I leave all of those included in that phase behind as well.
