If a childhood friends leaves their home town, and returns home years later, do you still consider them friends? When they come home, they do not visit you. Is it time to drop the friend status?

I do consider if they visit me, but if they fail to visit me I don't consider them as my friend. But my friends don't do that, they visit me and we remain always friend

If a childhood friend leaves home town and return home later I do consider them as a friend.If they don't visit me also though they were out of my side but they won't be out of my mind.The memories which we had before won't be forget forever.

If my childhood friend returns home years later than I will invite her in to my house. If she refuse to come than I need to think but if she comes the I will be very happy to give party and consider her as my friend only.

Hi, From your statement there, for sure , I will still treat them as my friends,no matter,they will come and look for me or not. I have lot friends down at my hometown. and everytime when I went back to my hometown, I will try to catch up with some of them,but not all of them.Some friends might not be free for the meet-up. Or at least talk on the phone still can catch up some chat. Technology is so advanced now, via SMS-ing, we can always keep in touch with friends. So they are plenty of method to keep in touch with old mates. You can always make the first move to call up your friends or visit them,from there, the friendship will build up again and it is more fun to have a gathering with friends once a while.

YOu may have many friends but only a few are considered real friend. Out of 10 friends you have, you would be very thankful if theres one whom you considered a real friend. For me, a firend is a friend no matter what. If a childhood friend of mine does the same thing to me, ill try to understand him. Maybe he has some important things to be done thats why he cant pay me a visit.
