    text and in-person meetings with friends who are neighbors

    In a lot of ways, I don't. I don't do social media. Several friends have moved away and the only method of contact is through that, since don't have addresses.
    The ones I do, is mostly physical visits. Some phone calls, but those are more intrusive. Rare email. Then you have the issue where I am at one end of the spectrum and so many friends are at another when it comes to income/time/family, etc.

    I lost most of my friends when they moved to Facebook. You find out who your friends are....

    Mostly phone and email. T doesn’t do email and she knows I probably won’t answer the phone if I’m home (outside) so she just comes to my house.

    also snail mail -mostly my mom, dh aunt, Christmas letters (received, not sent)
    and facetime for immediate family - mom, kids.

    What I do with phone calls is that I’ll text the friend and see if they’re available to talk. I’ve got friends all over the country in different time zones with different work schedules, so this works the best.

    I should have stipulated in original post that this was for people you don’t see often.
