Nowadays, the world feels so small. Friends and relatives can sometimes visit or go to college in a foreign county and in some cases they decide to stay there. Other times, maybe a person from France visited you country, became friends with you but eventually had to go back.
Such things happen all the time, especially in times of economic unbalance when people go abroad to find themselves a better future. But with life being so fast and sometimes stressful, we tend to keep ourselves busy with the matters at hand and eventually lose touch with people who live far away and we care for.
As the years go by, both of you may lose contact information or change addresses and phone numbers without notifying everyone. After a few years when you ache to reconnect with them, it will be hard to find someone called, for example, Mark Brown in the entire France.
Don’t let your hopes down
There is always a way to find them. One way is to post an add on Craigslist for missing contact. However, the chances that he or she will see it, are slim at best.
Another way is to use social media and page blanches (white pages). Social media alone can’t always help you, since your friend may have the name written in a different way. But after finding him or her on a telephone directory you can find the location and a phone number. Many social media users have their mobile numbers connected to them and if you are lucky, you will find the person you are looking for immediately. Worst case scenario, you will at least have an address and it will help you narrow down all the potential candidates to look through.
After that, the person you where looking for is just a friend request or a phone call away.
There is always a way
In modern world it may have become easier to travel to far away lands and possibly lose touch with the people we love. On the other hand however, it is now easier than ever before, to find them and reconnect with them. Everyone has a phone number, and possibly a social media account, Skype or a similar service, and an email account.
With so many options to choose from, you will always be able to stay in touch.
