Last night I said goodbye to a close friend for the past year. A German exchange student that came here for a year of school had her going away party last night, and at the end of the party when I was leaving and we hugged and whispered "I'll miss you" to each other, I got the worst feeling as I walked off and said "goodbye". It was a genuine goodbye, not one where you might run into the person at Target a week later, because I will most likely never see this girl again in my life. It sucks

Have ya'll ever had to say goodbye to a close friend?

This happens in life mate. People come and go. Get her facebook, MSN or phone number. Just because you can't see doesn't mean you can't keep in touch.

LMAO this killed the whole moment!!!

yea we live in the age of internet and high speed communication keeping in touch shouldn't be too difficult, and you can always save up some money or study abroad and go visit her..then you can tap that!

ive moved plenty in my life, six different schools for six years of elementary school, and two different middle schools. i've said goodbye to good friends plenty of times, and this was all before the internet/facebook (think 1999)

people enter and leave our lives as they please, but its the ways they affect you and shape you that will stay with you forever. i dunno if you got her info or anything, but you can always take comfort in the memories of being close to another person and allowing them to change you little by little.

everything eventually becomes memories anyway.

A chinese exchange student. She taught me a bit of chinese and I helped here with her english so we could talk more. When she left she wrote me a note in chinese, and told me to work it out myself. It took me three years to move away and find someone to translate it for me. [She was the only chinese person where I lived.]

It said a bunch of personal stuff which just tore me apart, and then it said, "if you ever learn to ask me to kiss you in chinese, I will kiss you." Which sucks. She is in China now.
...In my opinion.

Got a really creepy image here lol, but yes Skype/Facebook I moved away from the US 10 years ago and my best friend then is my best friend now and now that I've moved back it's like I'd never left.
Interwebz is an amazing thing.

yeah, just get her MSN, facebook etc and keep in touch online. if you're really good friends, you will keep in touch with each other, and who knows, you could always meet up again in the future when either of you have a bit of money and can travel.

but if in some weird case that she doesn't have any form of contact, then you're just gonna have to put up with it. you'll get over her eventually, it's like breaking up with a girl who you really like, you miss them for a while, but you'll end up moving on and getting over her.

no...not tina

ya, we are friends on Facebook, i knew we would still talk some, but as i drove off i just had that horrible feeling in my gut like i swallowed a cinder block. But unless she gets to come back to America for college (unlikely) I will probably never see her face to face again. But I guess I need to go by what I wrote in a note to her "life is full of goodbyes, which are often followed by many hellos"

Dude, when you have the money and independence to do so, you should go on an epic ****ing quest to China and find her. Since she was an exchange student, I'm assuming you know the city she was from? It shouldn't be that hard. If it's been too long I understand, but you can't deny it would be epic.


I've never had to say a permenant good bye to a close friend yet, other than pets dying, but this summer I will probably have to for my first time. Not looking forward to it

After this exchange, were you driven away in a taxi to the sound of "Just Like Honey" by the Jesus and Mary Chain?

Moving often is a bag of cocks.
It's what you described, but saying goodbye to everyone you know and leaving your area.
5 elementary schools
2 middle schools
2 high schools this year (first year) soon to be another.

You'll get through it though, not to worry.

Just step yourself outside, and look up at the stars above.

I've known a few people that came over on EVS schemes, (work experience) and it sucks saying goodbye, but if you can keep in contact with them it's really cool, especially if you ever go on holiday to their area

An exchange student from brazil has been living with me for the past year now and he goes back Friday. Really sucks because I will probably never see him again and he's turned out to be a really close friend.
