Old Friends Reunited

Truly one of the greatest joys we can experience is to be reuniting with a long-lost friend. More so–when it’s an old flame! We never lose sight of the importance of reconnecting you with someone who help shape your life.Find my lost friend.

Ascending the wooden escalator like the one shown above reminds us of early 1960s London. To think most of the people scrambling up and down those stairs then are sadly no longer with. Anyway lets not be morbid.

To find a lost friend

We feel we should point out that, be in no doubt these ‘people finding’ tasks’ do present quite a few challenges along the way. Not to mention highly unpredictable outcomes.

More so if the relationship was of a romantic nature. Especially when it broke down in somewhat acrimonious circumstances.

Beware, the ‘injured party’ can often remain very unforgiving despite the passing of time. But have no fear old friends reunited is up for the challenge and will support you. Lost friends-seek and you shall find is our maxim. We can even help with the reintroduction.

Reconnecting with a lost love- Platitudes and nice words

Lost friends are up for it if – you are!

Despite the passing years I have never forgotten you. Yes, nice words but often the injured/spurned party can remain bitter. You shattered their love and devotion towards you. By all means give-it-a-go but be prepared for a rebuff. In any event don’t expect it to be a walk in the park

However, our service are dedicated to assisting people who wish to do- precisely that.

Find a childhood sweetheart

How to find old friends.

Here we offer some advice on how to go about it. It could be an old flame, childhood sweetheart, a long lost School, work, Military or indeed from any walk of life.

Let’s begin though by saying; reconnecting with someone whom you lost contact with ages ago, really and in total honesty- isn’t easy!

Of course in these days of multiple digital routes, you can, on the face of it far more easily, pursue finding lost friends

But, logically we at Friends reconnected would not be in existence if it was that easy.

Our average request involves tracing back 50 years and beyond. This is a vastly more complicated affair than some of the ‘same day’ search offers.

It does require a totally different more creative/ lateral thinking and intellectual approach.

A truly rewarding, challenging, as well as an intriguing experience. With the added bonus of lots of twists and turns along the way.

The search for lost friends

Our researchers who are also family members-(Dads Army we call them) Often find themselves burning the ‘midnight oil’ in attempting to find your long last friend.

Totally engrossed, and becoming more and more embroiled. – Rather like being locked into a ‘kind- of’ time warp. Immersed in the often-intriguing trail of numerous dead-end routes, and disappointing false starts.

The journey takes us back through the decades

As a bonus for our researcher’s- (retired folk), it evokes many pleasant memories for them too.

Indeed it’s fair to say they are never bored. If they were then they wouldn’t do it. On the contrary, we often find ourselves having to drag them away from their research work.

Our founder John now age 74, has priceless knowledge and first-hand experience in this field. Having himself lived through the decades we now find ourselves covering.

John, being from the baby boomer era himself, adds something special to what we do. It becomes interwoven into some fond personal memories and experiences with his own past too. Somehow, we feel at times gives us an edge.

We liken it for example- a soldier recalling landing on the beaches of Normandy on D day.

Nobody can describe it as he can. Unless-they were there too.

Here are some snippets he mentions relating to his own real experiences aboard the time passage machine. Many of which our older enquirers might relate to.

1954. A trip with grandma to a “Lyons Corner House,” A truly wonderful treat for a small child. Or, accompanying his Mum to a local very up-market “Home and Colonial” store.

Being allowed to go on camping trips with the cubs and scouts. Memories of  Living under canvass and cooking sausages on a stick over the campfire. The bus which transported them: a “Leyland Tiger” omnibus.

1958. Asking dad for an ‘all the rage’ at that time- ‘Claud Butler’ racing cycle. Only to have his hopes dashed as it was out of dad’s financial reach.

1964. Sitting in a worker’s café in 1964 enjoying a fried breakfast (as you do) and listening to the jukebox. Recalling being absolutely spellbound by the ‘Walker Brothers’, Or the magical voice of Jackie Trent,  Dusty Springfield, Jimmy Ruffin, it’s like we are back there again. Click on any of the above artist/group to play their wonderful music- Youtube.

1968. Woodstock Era.

The list goes on. But of course, that’s just a few snippets from his own personal memories.  However, he recognises that too many what he remembers may seem to others rather boring, and mundane.

Revisiting our past

As we grow older many of us wish to reconnect with those whom we lost along the way. This is what we do and indeed enjoy doing. There are various reasons including: –

Saying sorry

To convey regrets and thank that special person for once spending part of their lives with you. To say now many things now unsaid 50 years ago. Confessing to being a complete inconsiderate bum in those days. “I would like to make it up to you”.

So without appearing morbid lets- go before it’s too late!

Search for my old friend

If it’s an ex-sweetheart then it can be a very sensitive area. Even when we find them, we then have to pitch the approach in a non-threatening way.

Finding an old friend. Let’s go!
