Old friend wants to meet but I have nothing positive to say :S watch

    • Thread Starter

    My best friend from school days wants to meet up for a catch up. We did this back in Summer and we haven't really spoken/seen each other since.

    The problem is that since we last saw each other, literally nothing good has been going on my life. In fact, it's pretty much all been bad! I would like to meet up with her and hear about what she's been upto, but when it's my turn to catch her up with my life, I don't want to be a negative bore.

    I'd like to have something good to say; I'm kind of embarassed that my life is in a bit of a shambles at the moment

    I guess I'm just looking for advice on how to approach this... I'll fill her in and keep it light-hearted, but what else could I talk about? So that not everything I say is negative lol.

    surely conversation will just flow naturally, you don't meet up, reel off everything that has happened to you and then leave.

    you can tell her about what's happened to you, even if stuff's not being going great it's good to have a laugh at yourself and your misfortune, just don't sit there and cry about it.

    as long as you're not a depressing boring person your conversations won't be.
