At what point do you give up on a friendship? Good friends are hard to find and important to keep, but what about friends who are-- who were good friends, but now are something else. They're not bad friends. They don't do mean things. They simply aren't around. They are in the same postal code, but they just don't call or make an effort. You try to make efforts in hopes of maintaining a friendship, but there is no reply.
When do you stop dialing?
It doesn't mean I'll stop picking up, but answering machines just aren't worth the dialing.
