Cupid’s Advice:

Making new friends is great, but everyone knows the friends you’ve known for forever will always hold a special place in your heart. Cupid has some tips on how to keep that close bond you have with old friends strong:

1. Keep in touch: It sounds obvious, but frequent communication is really one of the most important ways to stay connected to old friends. Make a texting group chat with your old friend group so you guys can update each other about what’s going on in your lives.
