True words. Making of an effort of the time is not a friendship. I've found this out the hard way... once the effort stopped on my part all communication stopped. I guess I wasn't the friend to her that I thought I was!! It's too bad b/c I miss her!!

I don't think this is true for all, but it is true for me. It doesn't matter what people say, if they get close, they always end up leaving. Casual friendships can last indefinitely - it's the people I really let inside my heart that end up leaving and taking a piece of me with them.
