Update: I haven't heard from the friend in six months, and I feel like I should just forget it and move on, BUT part of me wants to "cross the bridge" and contact her again. But I know the pattern will just repeat; we'll be in contact for a little while, then she'll shut off again. Someone else said she's really bad at doing her part in friendships (yet she bemoans not having many).

What's so special about this person that you want to be friends with them when they haven't contacted you in six months? I would just move on.

Then there is no mutual connection. Or she is simply not able to reciprocate and put equal amount of effort. Let it go.

Focus on finding news ones. And don't put all eggs in one basket. Have a few, so if one is like that again, you won't feel hurt too much.

But it's not about how hard you hit, it's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward, how much you can take and keep moving forward...
