Meeting up for the first time in five years - August 20th 2009, 12:36 AM

Ok so here's my situation. My best childhood friend had to move away when I was going into the sixth grade, him going into the fifth. We spent practically everyday together before the day he moved which would have added up to nine years of talking, playing, and hanging out. We could tell each other anything and at one point he said that he really liked me. I know that was kid love because at the time we were both only nine years old. After he moved away we would only talk maybe once every five months online because neither of us had the time to get online. Then out of the blue he disappeared for two years. Three days ago my brother found him on facebook and so I started talking to lets call him Rick again. I went out and got a phone so we could text each other. we've texted non stop and my minutes are already wearing down on the phone but I can't stop talking to him. I've missed him so much over the years and I never realized how much I actually liked him. I got really depressed when he left and I haven't felt this happy in years now that I'm talking to him again. I smile every time I get a message from him. Anyways, tomorrow he's coming up to the town again and will be at a local pool then he might be coming to our street because his siblings have friends they too want to see. So what I want to know is what should I expect? I don't want it to be awkward but we're not kids anymore so it's not like I'll be able to break out the Legos and everything will be like it used to be. I don't know what I should say or do. Any advice?

Hey,

I think that this reunion is just so awesome! I really like it.

I think that you should just be the way you always are. Try not to make things awkward, but if something awkward happens, laugh it off and continue. Talk about your past, and what has been up lately. Ask him about his move. Talk about anything. Maybe watch a movie while he is visiting. I'm sure you two will have a fun together again.

I wouldn't be so worried. You just be yourself, and he will be himself, and hopefully things will go well, though I'm sure they will.

Take care,
