How to Find People on the Internet

By: Kevin Browne

Want to know how to find people on the internet?

Let me ask you this FIRST...are you prepared to find them?

Here's the thing. It may be an old love, an old college or high school roommate, someone from your first job in the city, an old drinking friend, whatever, the point is that when you reach out and make that effort to re-find them, you are going to.

And a lot of emotions are going to flood back in...which is GREAT!

Allow yourself to feel those feelings again as you reconnect with that guy who taught you how to swing a 7 iron in your backyard all those years ago.

Let the memories of the old neighborhood wash over you as you reminisce with the neighbor who STILL hasn't returned your shovel

Give yourself the opportunity to breathe live back into those memories and feelings that affected you so deeply back when

The issue for all of us shouldn't be how to find people on the internet but should be how to find people on the internet fast???

Really.

Quick aside, I had wanted to reconnect with a woman that I knew from college FOR YEARS. But I was deathly afraid of those first several awkward moments. I knew deep down that the conversation would be strong after the initial hurdles were jumped, but I was deathly afraid of the first two reconnection minutes.

What I was not prepared for was the outpouring of funny memories that she had about me that I had all but forgotten. Riding in the trunks of cars to get food late at night because there was no room for the ninth person in a car that could fit 5!

The laughter we shared was so real, and so cleansing, I cannot begin to tell you how much.

And what it eventually taught me was that I will probably encounter more and more times when I really am glad I now know how to find people on the internet.

(Um, did I happen to mention that absolutely went into this knowing that it would cost me dollars to find her. And that when it DID NOT COST ANYTHING, my faith in the net was somewhat restored???)

Somewhat. LOL.
