Hey! How are you!! Long time, no see!! No really. I haven't seen or heard from you since my wedding. That you were in...Remember that? You were the one standing right next to me as my Maid of Honor.
I tried reaching out to you afterwards. We were in the same city for a while. I thought that was going to be fun, since we'd never lived in the same city before. It's odd that we were so good at a long distance friendship, but once we lived within 10 miles of each other, it just didn't work any more.
I'll admit, I was hurt for a while. I was ghosted before that was even a thing! I was busy with married life and you were busy with medical school. Eventually I moved on and gave up trying to contact you.
I've thought of you often over the years. Our moms are still friends so I hear updates from time to time. Those don't hurt as much as they used to. I wonder if your mom shares stories about me with you.
I realize that friendships and people change. I don't expect that we would ever be friends again. I do still wonder if I did something wrong. If I offended you or hurt you in some way, I'm sorry. I wish you would have told me. If the friendship had just run it's course, I wish you would have told me that too.
I bear you no ill will. I wish you the best in life.
