    I'm dating this girl, and the other day I was just looking through her profile.

    When she was at school she used to be very popular, go out a lot, has tons of people posting **** on her wall.

    Now she is more reserved, prefers to go out one on one rather than large groups and getting drunk.

    So how come people do through these changes?

    Well, the opposite applies to me. I was an extremely shy girl at school, then when I started uni and moved countries I became this whole other person. Sociable, fairly popular and pretty much different in every way. Now, though, I've calmed down a lot and I'm back to my reserved self.

    For me, it was a sense of changing up what had been and experiencing all these things and feelings I never had before. For her, she's probably matured, figured out that being popular isn't the end all and be all in life, and she's seeing the benefit in having fewer friends.

    I can't say for sure though. Why don't you ask her?

    Your right it would be a good question and a conversation to have

    Maybe your right, people get nature and rather have one or two close friends
