....to contact someone you used to be mates with but haven't seen for donkey's years?

(Sub-text; is it weirder and creepier to ask complete strangers on an internet forum for their opinion?)

I might be off to Australia later in the year and there are three mates who emigrated over there years ago and I was thinking of getting in touch.

Freaky weird unwelcome stalker OR delightfully unexpected life-enhancing surprise?

the tabboists woul;d say yes, I say no.

depends if you come bearing gifts....

not freaky, at least you'll know people over there.

nothing worse than being isolated and not knowing anybody. worst that can happen is that they can deny all knowledge of ever knowing you.

I think it's weird you think it's weird to get in touch with old friends:?

of course not i expect they will be pleased to hear from you

Nothing wrong with it given your circumstances.

go for it i say, i add people on fb all the time i used to know and they add me too, surely if it was freaky etc, facebook wouldn't exist?

many years ago I was packing to move house and came across an old friends address and phone number who I'd lost contact with, decided to ring her and even though she had moved she had taken her phone number with her and for that I am so thankful, she is one of my closest friends and its one of the best decisions I have made, do it :thumbsup::thumbsup:

Yeah but BG1 - you are THE taboo breaker!

It's not weird at all. Go for it! You might get some useful info and advice regarding your move/trip to Australia.

Neither - just the normal thing that almost anyone would do in your situation. I would say to definitely get in touch now.

Three mates emigrated together?

Hope not, Ive been making contact just lately with people I've not seen for 10-15 years, plus several exes who strangely are quite pleased to hear from me LOL

Did they used to like you when you were mates? if they didn't, chances are they won't like you now. :thumbsup:
