    • One of the friends I’ve made at my job is a guy from California. He and I are sort of kindred spirits as well as both being “old fogies“.

       I’ve known he was going to head back to CA eventually, but now it seems he’s going any day.  I know I’m going to cry and I hate that.  And I neither he nor I are really the type to keep in touch.

      I hate goodbyes.  Never really figured out how to deal with them.  Years ago when one of my friends moved suddenly, I was so upset and heartbroken I couldn’t even stop at her house to say goodbye.

    • Seperations are never easy. I too am not a master at saying goodbye (who is?) and letting my emotions show.

      Moving a lot I had to say plenty of goodbyes and it is always hard. With people that really matter though I’ve stayed in touch; maybe it’s only a mail or a phone call every two years but still, I never broke completely the bond, which makes things easier for me. I never percieve a goodye as being totally final, even though things will definitely be different. The thought makes things go smoother.

      As far as crying goes, I say just let it out. Crying is underrated if you ask me. It just shows that you care and that you are human. What’s wrong about that?

    • I agree Mavikaya, crying is certainly healthy.

      T, I would probably give him a small gift or a token of our friendship, along with a note telling him to contact me when he is settled and keep in touch as the years go by..friendships don’t have to die.heart

    • heart  Thanks girls!  

      He was in a better frame of mind today and not prepared to rush off without a job lined up, thank goodness.  

      I like the idea of a little token gift.  Something to remind him of us girls every time he sees it. happy
