Do you stay in touch with co-worker friends after you quit or vise versa? All of my friends are co-workers. Actually I'm better friends with them now that I've quit. We get along better and I can hang out with them more now that we don't work the same schedule. What about you?

If I were in your shoe, I will also do the same for it doesn't me that if you quit your job, the friendship also ceases. friendship goes far beyond work!

I've only stayed friends with one person after I quit working with her. And, she was a friend for many years before I started working there. So, working with her had no effect on our friendship. But, I've never worked anywhere for more than 4 years. So, that could have something to do with it too.

I don't usually do even though I want to. I have to transfer to another place so I don't see them that much and we don't talk much on the phone, so the friendship really don't grow that much although when we have a time to meet, we get along and update each other with our life's experiences and happiness, life's ups and downs. This is how it works with me, as long as there is trust and respect.

Absolutely. I think that I make friends pretty easy no matter where I go, so it's always easy for me to keep those friends that I make even though I moved on from their company. I still keep regular contacts with people who I haven't work with for almost five or six years, in some cases. I think it works out great for me because I am such an easy-going person, whether I am at work or not, so people find it easy to stay friends with me. Work helps me meet them, and then I keep them pretty well.
