I have friends that I still see that have been my friends for thirty seven years. They were my friends in college. I have others I see even more often that I have known more like twenty five years. I do not hear from friends from my high school days.

I have friends stretching back to 52 years,ie we have been friends since 1951 when we were in the 1st standard in school. This year we had two reunions at my residence where my school classmates whom we had not seen or met since the last 46 years since leaving school. In Jan next year another get together will happen when we will meet once again. I also had a get together of some of my old college mates after about 35 years and in Nov some old office mates met each other after 21 years.Its been quite a year for old times sake.

Mine is 55 years, our daughters are just turning 50. It seems like yesterday sometimes and others it's been a whole lifetime. I'm just glad I have her.

My friend, Ellen, I have known since I was 11 and I am now 54. My friend JoJo has been my friend since I was 8. But my best friend of all is my sister and I have known her all of my life.

Hmm, I guess my twin brother of 40 years, I've had some friendships that lasted during a block of time but I've moved or we lost touch and even though they didn't end they didn't keep going. I've known a friend for about 9 years and I've been married for 10 years so I guess that's my longest one.

My oldest friend is a girl I knew in high school, and it's been about 38 years. We now live on opposite sides of the country, but manage to keep in touch and up-to-date with what's happening with each other. We all have families that we wouldn't think of losing touch with. I've always looked at close friends as family members, not that we're born with, but that we choose.

We live in a small village and I have known a couple of friends from school for forty years we don't see much of one another but when we meet up it has not changed the way we react and talk to each other,plus the people around where I live we have all lived here thirty years of more and there are loads of people to talk to and be freindly with we are a real community.might not see each other from one year to the next but that does not matter,we take each other for granted and we miss someone when they move away but they normally end up coming back.

My two oldest friends, with whom I still remain in touch are my friends for the past 25 years and we still share our joys and sorrows with each others. When our friendship started, we were students in schools and now our kids are studying in higher classes in schools.
