Reuniting With Long Lost Friends and Lovers

We all have lost touch with old friends. People we dated in HS, old coworkers, distant relatives we used to play with as children. As time goes by we drift apart, lose touch. We move around, change phone numbers, lose address books and the next thing you know that old buddy is completely out of contact. Then they might remarry and no longer use a maiden name and that makes the trail even colder.

I've been doing locates for years. More than I can count and I can assure you of a few things.

1. If you are thinking about them, they are most likely also thinking of you.
That's just the way close relationships work. We're all human and share the same emotions. You miss them, they miss you.

2. People are incredibly forgiving. I have never had a case where someone was looking for an old friend and after a reunion the friend was angry to hear from them because they lost touch.
In fact people are always happy to hear from and old friend.

3 First love is always the strongest and lasts the longest. That love you had for your high school sweetheart was real and believe it or not if done properly can be rekindled. I've seen it a hundred times.

Knowing what I know about locating people I wonder why more people don't just do it? Maybe they think it's too difficult or too expensive or that the trail has gone cold.
That could not be more untrue.

The way online databases are set up today you can easily and inexpensively locate that old friend or lover with an old street address or an old phone number or old name and date of birth. It's incredibly quick and easy.

But beware on cheap online instant database searches. Most of them just return stale information. Take the time to find a reliable people locater service that's run by an experienced private investigator. They can take the raw data and analyze it to locate your friend.

When searching for a reliable investigator do a Google search on his name to see if he is recognized as an authority in online investigations and locates.

Either way. What are you waiting for? Do you want another 10 years to go by?
