So true. I've had work friends who I was incredibly close to, but as soon as one of changed jobs it was like the other barely exists. When we see each other we can strike it up again real fast. But for the most part if people aren't right in front of you it's really damn hard to stay in touch. Most people are friends with people because they are nearby, and it's convenient. It's just the nature of things.
