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.

Thanks for keeping me! :) Yeah, I don't understand when people add others and then don't bother to at least try to connect or maintain a relationship with them.

One of the reasons why I ended up moving to a new journal last year was partly because of all the abandoned journals and people I had on my flist. I didn't want to delete them but I also wanted a fresh start. :)

What's irritating too is when they will say "I still read" but they never comment or if they do it's once a year. It just leaves me scratching my head in confusion.

Yeah, that's a good idea. I just figured though since half had moved onto other journal sites they most likely were not coming back after several years.

ikr! I completely understand that sometimes people won't have anything to comment on for some posts but I don't understand someone continuously reading another persons journal but never engaging in them. I just don't get. XD

Yeah, unfortunately not. I miss when all the people I was close with used this site.
