High school is a time of learning, of growing, and of discovering who you are as a person, but many people lose touch after high school. Even people you thought you would be friends with forever and people who promised you would stay close can sometimes drift away. Keeping in touch with high school classmates is challenging, especially as you get older, get jobs, and get married. Once people move away from your hometown, keeping in touch can be even more difficult.
Fortunately, there are many ways you can try to keep in touch with classmates. Make sure you exchange email addresses and phone numbers of classmates of whom you want to keep in touch. With cell phones and constant Internet access, being able to send someone a quick message is even easier.
If you’ve already lost touch with someone and want to reconnect with them, you can go the old-fashioned route and give their parents a call to ask for current contact information. If that’s not for you, though, you can sign up for a website service such as MyLife. While there is a fee associated with using the website, you can request a MyLife refund if it isn’t what you expected. Additionally, many classmates will be on social networking websites and often include their maiden names on their profiles, so don’t forget to look for classmates through websites such as Facebook and Twitter.
