In general I am pretty good about keeping up with friends but I can think of 2 who fit this description. One is my friend Victoria. We have been friends our whole life but just don’t have a lot in common any more, just our shared past. So I know if I needed something she would be there for me but we’re not super close.

Another is a girl named Paige. We were friends as kids and pen pals too but at some point the letters petered out and now I haven’t really talked to her in ages. We’re friends on Facebook so we’ve caught up a bit but I’m not very close to her any more either.
