"honey, i'm so complex, i seriously wouldn't know where to start!"
most of the people i've known before, i'm either not in contact with anymore or only speak to them on speacial occasions e.g wishing them a happy christmas/new year and then making conversation from there, like asking what they've been up to etc. i tend to move from place to place and meet new ppl so sometimes i kinda forget about the ppl i knew before especially if i'm not around them as much anymore, it becomes a drag to meet up with old friends for old times sake, i'm more about "now" rather than "the past".

to get straight to the point, i never view people as interchangeable. it's not like i collect people as trophies and trade them for better ones. but i suppose i can understand why someone would think i see things that way. allow me to explain:
what makes a person irreplaceable to me: being genuinely caring and decent. someone who has shown that they are worthy of keeping around due to the fact that they can reciprocate the kindness, thoughtfulness, and support that i show them. someone who not only has never betrayed my trust, but who is trustworthy to all people they're close to. someone i can respect. and since it takes a lot to earn my respect (which does not necessarily mean being 10 steps ahead of me; walking beside me is fine, too ), there are very few people i consider irreplaceable (but i make it very clear from the beginning who is who and where someone stands).
there are many people i prefer not to waste my time on/with. they may remain acquaintances, but, if we should drift apart, i will move on from them very quickly, and, chances are, i will meet someone else i like more and i may become closer to them. but that does not make the initial acquaintance "interchangeable" in my mind. i'm just not going to waste time and energy on people i don't consider trustworthy. and yeah, i move on from those people as though they were never part of my life (because, when it comes down to it, they weren't - i don't allow them to become close enough to truly impact me). from my point of view, if they have a problem with that, it's not my fault if they can't tell who they are to me, because i communicate it thoroughly.
