    I just realised that I don't. But I still meet my middle childhood (from around 7 to 11 years old) friends. Seems like when you change work/school or set off to university you are bound to lose a great amount of friends. Isn't that sad?
    Well, answer to the topic.

    I think about this every few months and it makes me feel like ****. I pretty much grew up with some of these people (from reception to sixth form) and I miss them loads but I'll probably never talk to them again.

    Only one, we're good friends - we have coffee/lunch from time to time. When we meet up it's as if we're back in school again and no time has passed - same sense of humour and views on life, we both ended up at the same uni doing different courses though. Everyone else from my school days have changed a lot, quite a lot of my school friends have got kids now and we've drifted apart and the others are busy working and we don't have the the same interests anymore - nothing in common.

    Still in (occasional) contact with 3 friends I've known since I was 4 years old, don't often meet them though perhaps twice a year at the most.

    If I see some of my old friends on the bus I'll say hi, but I didn't go to my local comp so I stopped talking to a lot of my old friends not long after starting secondary school. You just have to make new friends and move on :/

    I still regularly talk to and see one friend I made when I was 6/7 as we went to the same school as each other until we were 16 and had the same group of friends. She's the only person from my primary school that I still talk to because she was the only one to go to my secondary school and she was the only one I really got on with anyway. I have two friends who lived down my road who I've known since I was 8 and then I made friends with all my other friends from 11 onwards.

    I live opposite my old best friend, but we hardly ever speak to each other. We don't really have anything to talk about now. We went to the same high school, stayed in the same friendship group but just drifted apart. It's sad but thats just life.

    :sad:



    I've known my best friend since primary school, and I doubt we'll ever lose contact. I have however, lost contact with most of my early childhood friends

    I guess. For me its been more a case of that I only now talk to the people from school that are my actual friends.. and even with some of those I'm starting to lose contact. But I suppose you go on, you make new friends. Nothing ever stays the same; its great but sucks at the same time.

    Still best friends with my oldest friend. The friendship group around us have evolved and settling down after about 13 but the two of us have always stuck together.
