I have just discovered that a friend of mine (known her for 7 or 8 years) moved house without telling me. I moved 400 miles away from where we both lived 5 years ago but kept in touch. She has been under a lot of strain due to 2 recent family bereavements. I sent a sympathy card but then found out her house had been sold in May of this year. When I contacted her to ask if she had moved as I'd sent a card, she said that it would reach her because she had a redirection service but didn't give me the new address or say where she had moved to. Last time I visited the area I ran out of time and couldn't see her and felt dreadful about it - I've apologised several times. Is this a tit for tat or am I being too thick to see that the friendship is over? Thanks
My sister and brother in law moved from near us to Devon a few months ago. I have twice asked her for her address (so that I could send her a card) but she has ignored my requests. She never asks about my family (two daughters and seven grandchildren). She has no children herself. We are worlds apart politically. I think our relationship has run its course.
