  • I wouldn't say we are friends anymore. More like we still know eachothers name and thats about it
  • Yep ! I've had one real friend in my lifetime and many many aquaintances . We are still best friends and have been since first grade way back in 1970.
  • Yes, two of them. One that I met when we were 4, and the other I met when we were 10. The one I met at age 10 is my son's Godmother. We both stood as maid/matron of honor at each other's weddings.
  • Yes, we're still friends even though we don't get to visit that often. We met in the 8th grade, I was a new student and new to Texas, we had several classes together and she was nice enough to invite me to have lunch with her friends. That was in 1978.
  • Yes. We've been through hell & back with deaths, divorces & also the great times. We met in 2nd grade & will be friends forever
  • Unfortunately, my family moved several times when I was young, and I lost track of all the friends I made as a kid. Eh, bien.
  • My original best friend and I had quite a falling-out when we were about 15. We were still say hello if we see eachother, but I doubt we will ever be 'friends' again. The fight was a long time ago, but it was kind of a big deal.
  • From my early childhood, no. My best friend when I was 14 is still currently my best friend at age 46.
  • I've been best friends with the same person since I can remember, and pictures of us go way back to when I was born. We've been through everything... changing schools, deaths, relationships, and her going away to college. We're only 19 & 20, but we have faced so much already and I am confident we will still be best friends when we're old(er) - just like our mothers. We're soulmates in the friendship kind of way. I'd be completely lost without her :)
  • Well i lost contact with Becky for gawd 12 years but she found me on myspace and i was sooooo happy. We talk all the time. I wish i could find my other friend it would be neat to talk to her again.
  • Yes.. my sister... She was my childhood best friend and were still best friends... but i'm also best friends with my friends from middle school...
  • Nope! Even though I forgive her for her actions, I will never forget that she tried to steal every boyfriend I've ever had. I didn't realize what she was really trying to do until she pulled a "single white female" on me and came to school with the same haircut and outfit I had. That was enough for me.
  • I though I would stay in touch with my childhood best friend forever but my family decided to move abroad suddenly for no reason whatsoever when I was 11. We tried to keep in touch through e-mail but unfortunately after sometime we became too busy to write long e-mails and so completely lost touch with each other. But recently I went to visit my old place and I met my best friend and we had the best time ever. We both promised each other that we would call and mail each other but i don't know if that's going to happen for long!
  • No, not for any odd reason, we just simply grew apart.
  • Yes, I'm still friends with my childhood best friend. Her name is Natalie and we've been best friends for about 22 years.
  • I wish I was but I'm sorry to have to say that they(3) have all pass over ...and for that I am truly sorry
  • Yep. I'm still great friends with my best friend from when we were 4. Although we both have different circles of friends now too and she also has two children aswell so doesn't come out to the pub as much as I do still, but we do see each other regularly and have never fallen out in 20 years.
  • No, first my family moved, then his family moved and I lost touch.
  • My childhood best friend moved in next door when we were 5. (Her parents partly bought the house because we got along so well!) We grew apart when we hit High School though. She got very into sex, drugs, drinking and her school friends, and I was homeschooled, and not at all interested in sex, drugs, drinking, "partying" or anything of the sort. Eventually, she dabbled into being bisexual, and decided that she was interested in me, which since it was not mutual, really rather ruined whatever was left of our friendship. At this point, we still see each other once in a while - our parents still live next door to each other - and always say we should get together and do something, but she's semi-single, interested in arts and subcultures and insisting upon being called "ee" and "im" instead of claiming either gender and being "she" and "her" or "he" and "him"... and I am married, have a daughter, and am expecting another, and have little time for or interest in going out to bars or partying, and have a hard time identifying with someone whose thoughts are so frequently wrapped up in being genderless and role defying. So basically, no, we're not really friends anymore, though I still hold out hope we'll find common ground again, and reestablish friendship as we both grow, perhaps together again instead of farther apart.
  • Yes, my childhood best friend and I still keep in touch.
  • No, I have detached myself from almost everyone in my past. I truly don't have any friends and it's just easier this way.
  • He's not alive anymore, but yes...I am.
  • no not anymore...
  • We're still best friends, brothers even. We've known each other for over twenty years and still hang out most every weekend! At one point we had gone to colleges in different cities and still kept in touch. Now we both live in Miami, so it makes things easy! Now if I can just get him married off! LOL.
  • I'm still friends with a girl I met when I was seven. Although we don't see each other very often anymore, when we do get together, it's like no time has passed.
  • Childhood, no. Teens, yes, as I met my husband when I was 14.
  • Unfortunately, no. My best friend moved out of state 35 years ago. Shortly thereafter his parents both died within 4 months of one another. He has vowed not to return to my hometown because of the sadness he feels over losing his parents. He was an only child and we haven't been in contact with one another for over 20 years. Sometimes I think it is better to leave well enough alone. Trying to restart an old friendship can only make things more complicated for yourself and your old friend. Friendships have to be worked at and they require constant maintenance. Someone once told me that the number of our real friends is probably no more than five. If this is so, I feel blessed by my few friends; they are more precious than gold.
  • Nah, she changed when she moved to the UPPER middle-class side of town. :)
  • yea I love her she is a great person and now she is married and has a child she still lives in the same house she grew up in i use to live next door but even though i moved we r still close
  • no i am not. Though my mother stays in contact with the mothers of my friends from back in the day
  • Yes! We've known each other since we were babies.
  • yeah, my friend mariah moved to tennessee when i was 6 and i had known her since before i had memories, we still talk on the phone every now and then
  • I was, and Carol was killed in a house fire this past week. Our friendship dated back to age 12, 44 years. Back then we did everything together from rollerskating to skipping school in order to ride around in her maroon "boat" convertible all day while we picked up other friends.We may have even shared a boyfriend or two.We survived the 60's, her husband having survived Vietnam and we survived adolescence.Later, we raised our babies together and it was Carol who helped me pack after my second baby was born when my husband and I parted. Throughout the years, while we lived in the same town, our lives took different paths, and while we did not see each other as often, sometimes for years,in our hearts we knew we we would always be best friends. It seemed there was no need to prove our friendship. When one of us would contact the other, the childhood bond would always resurface as though we were back in her convertible, as though we had been together everyday and we would reminisce about those times. Someone once said, that the friends you have in childhood are the best friends you will ever have. How true this is, and how short life is. I am saddened now by her death as I would have been at any point in our lives, yet I know in my heart, our friendship will last forever.
  • Yes, but we're not close. I'd say we're more like acquaintances now. Still, who knows what will happen when our children grow up an not need us so much? We may reconnect.
  • I have not seen or talked to him in over 30 years.
  • No. I moved away. I did recently send an email to his brother. But haven't spoken to or seen him in 27 years.
  • my best friend from the childhood is my cousin , her name is Samrah. she was born on 3rd january and i was born on 6th january, we are at the same age, and we like the same things, the same boys . lol. our houses are in front of each other so we spend all of our time together, we go to the same school and to the same class. but we are very friendly, i am very happy that i have such good cousin and best friend:):)
  • Yes I have one childhood friend left
  • Me and Joey met in Kindergarten and we are still friends.
  • yes. i am i meet her when i was 11, i do not know what i will do with out her.
  • Yep my friend Josh and I have been friends since preschool
  • I had three childhood best friends. One who I knew since I was born, and two (twins) who I knew since I was 4. I'm still friends with all of them, but the one I knew first I rarely speak to. The other two I'm as close with now as ever. I've moved a few times since then, so the fact that we're all still pals is pretty awesome. :)
  • One from childhood (near-neighborhood and grade-school though college), one from high-school, and one from college. We live in different cities so don't see each other much, but I still consider them all friends.
  • Yes. My best friend has been my best friend since 4th grade.
  • No, I met her when I was 14 and knew her for 30 years but haven't spoken in 10 years. Had a falling-out over a minor thing. She ended the friendship and has not contacted me since. She did not forgive easily. She got upset over the silliest things. I don't think she understood me very well, but I believe I was a loyal friend. I think about finding her again, but don't know if that's a good idea. I think a true friend forgives you for the mistakes you make.
  • As a matter of fact I am. We have been friends since junior high. That would be half of my life
  • No, we drifted FAR apart in personality and likes.
  • We're more like acquaintances, really. He comes to town every now and then and calls me when he's here, but we don't really talk much outside of that.
  • She told me I was a bad example because I got my tongue pierced and that I wasn't allowed into her house anymore (we are in our 30's). I told her she was a bad example for treating me differently because of something cosmetic and that I was the same person I was the day before. I've tried to send her birthday and Christmas cards and stuff, but haven't heard back from her since. This was a few years ago, so I guess we're not friends anymore!
  • No and I feel like it's a part of life. People come and go but those who want to stick around, will do so.
  • I believe you will always have a handful (and only a handful) of friends who you will always grow up with. Right now I'm in college and I remember how so many of my friends from high school told eachother that we'd always keep in touch and so on, but the reality is that doesn't happen and peopel move on. However you will always have a few true friends, who you have been friends with for ages, who will stick with you no matter what. I can think of a few friends I know who despite the fact that they go to different colleges will never lose touch with me.
  • Yes, very good friends in fact :)
  • no i am not........coz no one was like i expected.....................
  • No, we moved so many times my best friend was my sister. Sadly the alcholic the took over her body has made it so we can no longer be friends.
  • No. I've moved so many times in my youth, I never had just one childhood best friend. By the time I was 12, I had lived in 8 different places! But now, my bff is my sister. And that's a pretty solid relationship.
  • we aren't extremely close we have become more like acquaintances but we still share all those memories. I have other friends and a best friend now who I would go above and beyond for.
  • nope. I kind of wish thow.
  • Yes, we met in 7th grade, we were 14 and are still friends today, age 39. Just went to our 20th high school reunion last summer together, it didn't surprise any one that we showed up together (without hubbies)
  • I still KNOW her, but we are half a country apart and I acknowledge, we only e-mail/ phone once every 1-2 years.
  • No. I was friends with her for 9 years though but once we were in middle school things started to change and we stopped being friends in 7th grade.
  • No,She lives on the other side of the country now.
  • Yes, but we hardly ever see each other.
  • Yes I am. She has been my very best friend since grade 5. We have taken every holiday toegether, gone around the world together, lived a block away from each other our whole lives and have remained best friends for 15 years now. I couldn't ask for a better friend. We're inseperable.
  • no, i was until grade11 but sadly we split. but we have known eachother since we were 5
  • Of course i'm still friends with the girl who pushed me into the sand box way back then! i could never Be not freinds with her, we've fallen down the stairs of hell many times, and up and down the elavator to heaven countless of times. :) I can't even remeber a time when we haven't gotten wasted together. Mann, just talking about her wants me to go spend time with her lol, ohh shitt nvm, she's beside me ^_^
  • From Kindergarten till NOW. I love that puta!
  • yes been 35 yrs now and still best friends/brothers
  • I talk to her every once in a while. We've grown apart quite a lot after I moved away and we went through puberty.
  • yes i met her in the 2nd grade and we're 20 now...we still have a long way to go
  • Nope. Here is my sob story. Okay well me and my friend, lets call her Jen, were best friends for like 5 years. Inseperable! Never apart and we knew everything about eachother. We met in like first grade and now I'm a freshmen. In about seventh grade, she started hanging with this girl I hated, and I was mad. She hung out with her everyday!! And by the way, this girl was very popular. So Jen became very popular. Now, Im not that popular, I am just average, you know? But anyway, we drifted apart. So we stopped hanging out, and we werent in the same classes. Now when we see eachother in the hallways, we don't even look at eachother or say "hi!" Its really sad. But it is not like we are mad at eachother or anything, it is just that we don't even talk anymore and I miss her terribly. I try to hang out with her but she is way too busy with her new best friend.Now one of my good friends, who strives to be popular, is hanging with her ALOT and I feel soooo left out. Yeah, so to answer your question, No im not still friends with my childhood best friend. UGH

  • Yes. I met her when i was 10 years old. Been by my side threw out the years, and is still to this day my best friend of all. :)
  • no. none of my childhood friends are worth the bother.
  • NOPE. She and I drifted apart 15 years ago and just a few weeks back she sent me an invitation to her baby shower, it arrived two days before the party took place. I could not make it because I was sick so I sent along a gift to show I still care. Afterwards she sent out a bulletin on Myspace saying F-you to every friend that never showed up at her party. I was pretty hurt by that and replied that I was sorry again for missing it. I have yet to hear from her... Oh well!

  • No we have not spoken for about 3 weeks now or more It seems as though we are driffting apart and no one can save us from this mess
  • i am 29. i dont have a childhood best friend. I have a friend from middle school who is my best friend. Our lives are kind of different, we live in different states, we have totally different goals, but we will ALWAYS be best friends.
  • All my best friend are gone now. They left me when I needed them a lot. Now to my my best friend is my mother and my sister.
  • No, we worked elsewhere far, and when met them during festive holidays also we just chat a bit and be gone.
  • hell yeah, met in music class and sang the beatles "penny lane" together, and ever since we have been friends. been friends for 11 years now.
  • yeah, but it's been hard to maintain a friendship while we're both growing older, and apart, at the same time. he moved to Virginia because he was messing up in school, and I stood in New York. When he came back, he was entirely gothic and I felt the same. but now I've grown a little too. i'm more distant, and he seems more like a jerk. i dunno how long this will last. we were in the same second grade class when I first moved into his neighborhood, and i don't even know if that can keep us being friends because I don't wanna stick around for "old time's sake". It's sad. It feels like i don't know where I'll end up anymore
  • Yes, but we rarely talk anymore because of entirely different lives: She got pregnant & married her senior year of high school, and is now an Air force wife with two kids living on base, with absolutely no intention of going to college as she just wants to be a housewife, which is fine because it makes her happy, but just not where I see myself going at the moment. I'm in college doing pre-med studies. So we're both really really busy with very different things and have very little to talk about.
  • No, most of them i do see anymore.I will never forget about them but life goes on.
  • YUP,THOUGH WE RARELY SEE EACH OTHER SIBE WERE ALL BUSY BUT STILL WE KEEP IN TOUCH ON FRIENDSTER AND YAHOO MESSENGER.
  • Yep and always will be! Gonna go see him and his family in about an hour.
