I still have friends that I went to preschool with. :D There were a few little spats where we didn't talk very much or see each other often, but we've remained close through the years despite that.

i am an only child, so aside from my parents, my friends are my considered lifetime treasures. im 21 years old and ive been friends with my childhood friends for almost 19 years. my parents introduced me to my first friends when i was 3 years old. and im glad i still have them. everytime we see each other and had time to have a long conversations, we always end up reminiscing the past. and its somehow, fulfilling. that you have someone, again aside from my mon and dad. who have seen me in my worst and my best.

It depends on the friend. I had 2 best friends in high school and we still keeping touch. they are like my sisters and I couldn't imagine life without them. I also have this other "friend" who I've known since middle school. She's always used me and I've always looked the other way. This has been going on for years and years and no matter how hard I try to distance myself from her, she always seems to wiggle herself back into my life. Just recently, she found me and started emailing me. I thought maybe she had changed but after she got some info from me (her husband was applying for a job that my hubby has worked at for over 10 years and she wanted my husband to put in a good word for her husband). I really thought she changed but after she got what she wanted, she stopped emailing me and we don't talk to each other anymore. That's it for me! I am tired of being her idiot friend...I am just a really trusting and loyal person and my friends mean the world to me. But I am tired of her crap and I am not going to be pulled in again! ha is it obvious that what she had does bothers me? So yes friendship is very important to me but not that kind! If you have friends like, dump them before they squeeze you for all you have!

Hi Tony ,friendship according to me is the only relationship where you can choose your friend.All the other relations are made by The Almighty.I am very choosy in making friends but once friends I believe in a life long relationship rather than a short term relationship.

I am a grown middle aged woman now and I don't keep a lot of friends let alone some of the childhood friendships that I have had. There are a couple of reasons why. It is not that it is not important to maintain friendships with people from childhood it is just that I have grown up and got my own life and have moved quite a bit throughout my adulthood. Keeping active friendships isn't easy. I have been living in my neck of the woods for close to a year now and I still don't know if this is the last place I will be residing. There seems to always be a better place for my family to uproot every so often. We have some financial set backs and we can't always keep the friends that we make. But the childhood friendships were important to me and I haven't forgotten them. I have just grown up and moved on. I am sure that there are those out there that keep long term friendships even after moving on but I am just different.
