So far I've still keep in touch with few of my childhood friend. It's great when we talk about our childhood and how we became right now My remaining childhood friends are not as much as my colleague, college and high school friends. But it's still great, to be able to keep in touch with them after a long years. (about 20 years ) How about you ?

Almost not. I find it's always easy to lose touch with my childhood friend. I lived in the countryside when I was a little girl, but I left my home town when I graduated from the university. Most of friends of mine went to different places and different universities. We can't keep touch with each other. It's hard to memorize his or her names and their address since there're no phones or internets in those days. It's really a pity for me that I can't find my those old friends.

Maybe you should search their name in social sites like Facebook or Friendster ? That's if you still remember their names ... But there's might be by a coincidence that you'll meet one of your childhood friend someday

It's great, do you live in your home town now Angelbelle? I live in my home town, and that's the reason why I still keep in touch with them.

I don't. Most of my childhood friends have long since moved away and we've lost contact with each other. Some of my friends from highschool are still around, and I talk to a few of them, but we don't have much in common anymore -- I've changed a lot since I was a high school student.

I know what you mean. But I liked to keep that changes in a humorous way. When we gather, we often mock each other on how changed we are from our childhood. We might like what we've become now, but there's nothing wrong to see backward one or another times. Thanks for responding Gabe

I do. In fact, I am still friends with almost all of them. We still get to see each other. We hang out on a regular basis. Most them have been my friends for almost 3 decades now and we're still counting years and years of beautiful friendships.

I don't really keep in touch with any of mine. I moved around a few times, and after that, we kind of all lost contact. I recently found some of them from myspace, but it's so awkward trying to figure out what to even talk about, since it's been so many years. I think all of us are so different, and living totally new lives. It is awesome for you, that you can still talk to them, though.

It's a sad topic for me because I have not any one childhood friend keep in touch.Well,I was used to try my best to keep that intimate relation,but it seems difficult to maintain.All of us changed a lot,and experienced quite diffrent these years.It seems the friendship between girls never last longer.When I saw a childhood friend who grown up together with me from junior school to high school and I treated so important send the most treasure to another friend in front of me,I was really heartbreak.She never kept touch with me after high school but always contact with my boyfriend.This experience makes me lose confidence about friendship and I can't walk out of this shadow so long a time.I still hate she because I still care about she.

I only contact one of my chindhood friend. she is also my best friend. we called each other daily to talk the happy and unhappy things during the day. sometimes we give advices for each other for the problems we met. it is great to share everything with the friend you trust and grow up together.

My friends and I have stopped communicating after our high school graduation. Now that we have our own families and have jobs to get busy with, it is impossible for us to take time to look for each other's numbers just to talk about thinks we no longer share. In fact, once I met one of my childhood friend at the mall. We both felt so awkward and we seem to have nothing to talk about. We simply asked each other about our jobs (where we worked, what kind of work), our families (how many kids, whom we married_ which obviously can not connect) and our places (where we lived). Basically the meeting is a simple hi and hello only. :-(

We moved around a lot when I was a kid. A few years ago, I ran into someone I knew before high school, and the gap was just too bad to cross. So my longest surviving friendship actually started in high school. We have been friends now for twenty-seven years. Ironically, I am closer now to some of the people that I went to high school with, then I was back when. After not having contact with them for twenty years, once they rediscovered where I was, we discovered that we had more in common now with each other. It is amazing how things like running your own business can make you good friends with people you never really knew in high school, but are also now running their own business.

Sadly, not anymore. Am not sure but I think it's pretty rare nowadays that childhood friends are still in touch. I know some people who are still in touch and in fact are still close to their childhood friends...but, they're actually HS friends.

Actually, I also have childhood friend but just visit each other once a year. We will always talk about what is our future plan, and also discuss some others thing like what kind of business you are doing and also share about our happiness and sadness and also it is good to release our tension with childhood friends.

hello.ΓΌ Thanks to modern technology i'm able to keep in touch with my friends through texting, chatting, and social networking. Honestly I prefer to talk with my childhood friends than my newly met friends in college.

well, for me, i still keep in touch with my childhood friends. but the relationship has changed a lot. it never as before, becouse the enviroment that each person has grown up was different. we have changed so much that we didn't have many common conversation topic that we can share with each other. i still keep in touch with them, but not very often, about two times one year.

Well,as for me,i am keeping in touch with few childhood friends now.I don't even keep in touch with my high school friends,cuz i am so busy with my work,i have so many things to do that i don't have much time to contact those lovely friends.In addition,they all have their own work to do ,they have their own famlily,and they have thier own circles,if there are not much same interests between us,i don't think i should contact them and keep in touch.People changed,let it be. Have a nice day.
