I think it’s so strange to walk by someone you used to be friends with and not acknowledge them. Today, I walked past a girl I used to hang out with a lot freshman year. I smiled at her, but she just kept looking forward!
We never had a falling out. We never even fought. We simply drifted.
It’s bizarre to know that I’ve had so many memories with this person, and they act like they don’t know you. This happens a lot at St. Bonaventure, and I wonder if it’s like that at other schools.
Since we’re a small college, it’s easy to know a majority of the people. Would it hurt to acknowledge them? I’m not asking for them to hang out with me, or even have a conversation. Just a smile or a nod would suffice.
Also, I think another rule should be: If you’re friends with them on Facebook, you should say hi. Do you guys follow this rule?
