5 Ways to Stay Connected With Your Friends as Life Changes

"People are in your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime . . . If a friendship is strong, then it will survive change. If it is less strong, then it will not, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't cherish all the good times you had." That's how user Onlysourcherry responded yesterday when I asked how you cope when your friends make lifestyle changes, like getting married or having kids. On the post and on Facebook, readers shared some great tips for staying connected if you want to really remain best friends forever. Here are five!

  1. Make a Skype date.
  2. Keep up with them on Facebook.
  3. Schedule girl days.
  4. Regularly exchange funny photos via email.
  5. Make plans for a weekday lunch.

And many of you agree that it's OK to take a break. User Not Princess22 explains how she's moved on after her friends started families, while she went to grad school: "I decided that I needed fresh air, started meeting young, child-free couples and having a joy with my new friends. I still consider the others my best friends, but I need a break from them."
