I met many people during my life, but I don't contact with them. I have some phone numbers and I had some contacts with known people on social media. Sometimes, I send them a message but they never reply. I see a few of them on book primotions or in the streets and I talk to them.

I have....some Soda Headers, another from elsewhere that I regret very much.

I think it leaves a heartache and it's better not to think about it.  I guess you have to keep moving?  I don't know exactly.  You can never predict what life takes away and what may wash ashore.


I have had many online friends that disappeared, most of them when SodaHead shut down. 


Hi Kninjanin,

Yes I have many old friends I do not see anymore...but life seems to bring new friends around, too! 

idk, I don't seem to have any regrets, somehow the old friendships do seem complete, no need to continue them...

The regret I do have is the same as Other Tink; the online friendships from a Q/A site, in my case it was ask. com. Those friendships were of a very special kind, and so delightful and tender too - and no way to really continue them when Ask went over to algorithms only!

(Rooster and Didge are two exceptions, we have kept in touch after Ask and even become closer friends and I cherish both of them.) <3  <3  <3

Many people are gone from my life and I don't regret.  It seems that many of them are not interested in communicating with me. I don't know even if they are live. I don't need to care about them.

Yes, I think about people sometimes and I know some of them are no longer living...life is bittersweet sometimes!


Yes, I've had many friends over the years who have either passed away or moved to other states but a couple I still keep in contact with when I have time. Many are gone to parts unknown and I probably won't ever see them again.

As far as online? I could count my friends there on one hand. Including the people here. Another site that I'm on, I just found out yesterday that a long time member was a phony and had been using someone else's name and pictures all along. Quite a shock actually as I had talked to her quite a bit. After a dark web search? I found the real person and it's quite possible as we're not done yet that this female just actually might be a man. Fooled a lot of people and just quit every site and disappeared. So, you really have to watch who you meet online.

I lost contact with almost everyone from Ask.com and blurtit.com. Never hear a thing from them and I don't reach out to them but once and if I don't get a reply? I move on.

Although we are few here? I feel like I know and trust all of you.

The Matrix Forum I mod on is just customers who have questions about the workings of certain games.
