Are friends who don't call, friends?

I've written about this before.

I'm lucky - I have lots of friends. I had a great Italian evening this last Sunday where I cooked for 12 friends - it was great fun and good to be with so many people I know.

But so many "friends" are so lousy at keeping in contact. I invite them to meet up and hear nothing more from them.

Well, my focus is on those who want to be around me from now on. The others who hear less from me? I'll touch base now and again, but they can assume from the less effort on my part that I have taken their lack of interest as meaning they regard me as peripheral. And hence I will do the same.

I know exactly what you mean. Many of my old friends have now fallen by the wayside. If I don't contact them, I don't hear from them at all. Sometimes it makes me wonder if I even matter to them, but like you said it's better to focus on those who value your company.
