Two-Way Street?


Not sure about you, but I've always thought friendship was supposed to be a two-way street. If one person stops making an effort, the friendship turns into just being acquaintances or all contact is lost.
Sometimes people go down different paths in life, and relationships naturally end, other times life brings you back together, and the friendship picks up where it left off, like nothing has changed.
In other situations one person tries to stay in touch for a while, and when no response is given back....that person trying to maintain the friendship gives up all hope.

Why do people make things so frustrating? Why are people so rude? A simple response is appreciated and considered nice.....
Yes it stings a bit when someone you no longer talk to for whatever reasons delete you on FB...first world problems?
But when you're still "friends" on FB, instagram, twitter, used to double date, and are considered "sisters" it stings a little extra hard when they post on social media but don't have the time to text you back/fb chat you.
Maybe they changed their number? Doubt it.

I give up. Yes it hurts a little to slowly have your "good friends/friends" list dwindle over time....
Guess that means I need to get out more and meet new people? Get more involved in my free time?

Anyone else have this problem with people not following the two-way street unspoken rule when it comes to friendship?
