Have you ever had a best best friend that you thought that you couldnt live without fade away and then run into the a few years later and realize that all that you once had in common is now gone ??

I also had that kind of friend that I thought she was.....Well, people come and go and things always change. We may never revive what we have before but still there are lots of memories that we can share even if we're not that close anymore.

That is about the only thing that we can come up with to talk about is memories and mutual friends. Oh well, I guess, like you say, I still have the memories of all the silly things that we did :-)

Yes, I had a best friend in junior high & high school and we were inseparable until about 11th grade. We were still friends but not as close. As we got older and had different experiences it made the gap even wider. We don't have a lot in common now at all, and while she is a sweet person I have a hard time relating to the things that interest her now.

That is exactly how I feel now, although we are both pretty much into the same things that we were in back then. Its very strange, I guess its because back then we were doing everything together and now we're not.

Well, I wouldn't say that I couldn't live without him, but I did have a best friend in Junior High school, that I ran into many years later. I didn't like him nearly as much as I had when we were younger.

Well no necessarily one that you cant live without but one that you were always with :-) That was what I found too when I ran into my old friend. We used to be insepperable and now we dont even know what to say to each other...lol

Yes it does happen. While growing up you tends to have the same interest but when one gets mature and individual problems and stress comes along sometimes the other change and then it all fade away. But such is life and maybe this is why some people tends to keep in each because they don't want to lose that identity that used to make them what they are. It is a funny thing but this does happen on a daily basis.

Yes it does ! Its just strange that when you run into them later you almost wonder what you had in common in the first place.
