Going to a high school reunion this summer? How long has it been since you saw your former classmates? When you think about it, the answer might surprise you. After graduation we all go our separate ways. And it’s just so easy to lose touch.
This summer, people across the country will reconnect with friends they haven’t seen in more than a decade. Getting ready for a high school reunion can be an exciting experience. You’re eager to see everyone and reminisce about old times. But the weeks leading up to the big day can be surprisingly stressful.
Sometimes the thrill of catching up with classmates is overshadowed by feelings of apprehension.
We’ve said it before. It’s easy to lose touch. People get wrapped up in their fast-paced lives and time slips away so quickly.
At PeopleFinders, we believe it’s never too late to reconnect with people from your past. That’s why we’re issuing the People Finding Challenge. We’re urging you to start your own people finding adventure so you can reunite with family, friends and anyone else.

This study produced a list of Top Ten regrets. It didn’t hold many surprises. Though we come from wildly different backgrounds, we all share common experiences.
The study concluded that most people spend at least 45 minutes dwelling on their personal regrets every week. No surprise there, either. We can’t help thinking about things that went wrong in the past, and inadvertently torturing ourselves by pondering what we should have done differently.
Number 6 on the list of regrets really caught our attention. It’s something that many of us at PeopleFinders think about each day:

Imagine being separated from your family. Years go by without contact. You wonder where they live, if they’re doing well, and if they ever think about you.
