Describe an old friend you got in contact with again
You should say
- Who he or she is
- What he or she is like
- How you got in contact
- And explain how you felt about it
Well, it is always a pleasant experience when we meet with old friends. It is quite joyful if we suddenly meet our loved ones after a long time.
Last year, I met with Paul who was my batchmate during my college days. We studied together during the first year in college and after completing the first two-semester Paul left college due to his personal matters. However, we became best friends.
Last December, he visited my hometown. Actually, we were not Facebook friends. He messaged me on Facebook messenger. I was not able to recognise him because he had a new look. When he told me about who he was, I was super excited to see him again. He told me to sent my cellphone number. He soon called me. He told me that he was in my hometown. First, I could not believe it and then he told me to meet at cafe coffee day in downtown. There we enjoyed a cup of coffee. We shared old memories and had a lot of fun. We also discussed our professional lives and future plans.
I asked him to stay at my home but he politely told me that he had to return back to his home. Also, he promised me to stay at my residence when he will come again. He also invited me to visit his hometown. So this was the time when I met with an old friend after a long time.
