Goodbye old friends  
My friends list just got a lot smaller. I decided to finally do a friends cut after all this time. I still kept a few who I should probably delete since the last time they updated was back in 2012 and then there are some that have just never bothered to interact regardless of me trying with them. I don't know why people do that. They never comment on your journal yet the expect you to on theirs. The whole point of adding people to your friends list is to interact and actually be friends.

I cut people who haven’t updated since 2011 or people who abandon their journals for dreamwidth and were not going to make a return to livejournal. It was bittersweet because I felt I was just holding onto those journals for old memory sake since some of them I had known since I was 19. Hopefully I didn't cut anyone I didn't mean too. I tried very careful when I went down the line.

Omg this so much ;n; I completely understand.

I also understand not wanting to cut someone you were close with once, but they've abandoned their journal. It's more sentimental reasons than any. But to kick it up a notch, when I moved journals, I added those who I was close with who haven't updated in a year or more. A few have yet to add me back, so I guess I keep out hope they will come back /sadface

That's become an LJ pet-peeve of mine lol. Don't add someone if they're only going to become a number to you, that's just horrible.

Oh I know what you mean. I used to do that and then I finally was like, why am I doing this? It took me a a little while to do a proper friends cut years ago and then actually jump into the add____ communities.
