A select few.... I went to an international type school and I also moved about a lot, but we do make it for reunions and such.

But am only close to a select few who happen to work in the same industry.

Much closer to people I was friends in while at university.

I did for about a year but then stopped bothering. We were friends in school and I think that is the only place we would ever have been friends. We didn't have all that much in common, and I got a bit fed up with their immaturity.

Yeah, all of mine are in my basement. They're kind of like living souvenirs.

A couple. Just the guy mates that actually mean something to me; like my first 'ex' - he's a lifelong friend.

The girls, not so much. I didn't get on too well with the girls at school; too much competition and *****ing.

A lot of them yeah. I still find that I have a lot in common with the majority of them so I do value their friendships. Although to be honest, there are some who I keep in contact with via phone/facebook who I don't see much in real life so I don't know if that would still b classed as 'keeping' them??

I moved around a lot when I was younger so I've been to several different high schools.

I've kept friends with 3 people that I went to primary school with & I've remained friends with a good few people from the different high schools I went to. We aren't as close friends anymore & a lot of them are from Ireland where I lived for some time so I'd never really be able to meet up with them lot. The friends I made in 6th form are all at Uni now (where else I'm in my gap yr) so we only get to meet up every 3 months or there abouts.

Whether I'll still remain friends with them once I've been & finished Uni Idk, maybe. Tbh I'm only still friends with the majority of them because we have been able to keep in contact with each other via facebook so if any of them (esp the ones from Ireland) were to stop using fb then I doubt we'd remain friends .

Ask again in 5 yrs lol! .

Some of the people I went to school with are friends still, the others I either don't see or are acquaintances now.

I kept one high school friend, we still talk and hang out regularly. There are a few others who I keep in touch with but we talk very sparingly.

Yes, in fact I have more friends from school than college. Probably because they attract in general different people.

Only one, but I've been friends with her since the beginning of primary school. The rest I occasionally talk to through facebook but not very often.

I have most of them on Facebook, even though I rarely use it.

I tried to stay in touch with the friends who I was much closer with. And try not to loose contact with my best friends. (Ofcourse)

Lost most of them when I went to 6th form. Lost more after that. And now, hardly see anyone. QQ

A friend planned a reunion this summer. So should be able to see most of them again. (I hope)
