Have you attended your high school reunion yet , will you attend when the times comes or was one held and you simply did not attend ? What was your reaction when you met all your classmates from school , did you recognize everyone or did you find everyone had changed and how ? If you did not attend , what was your reason for not attending . And if you haven't had one yet , do you believe that when they time comes that you will attend or not and what are your reasons ?

My high school reunion is coming up in July. Yes I plan on attending. After high school I lost contact with a lot of friends because they went off to colleges far away and I stayed close to home. So I plan on going to try to reconnect with those friends. My class reunion has our very own website just for our class. It shows everyone who has registered and paid for thier tickets. So far there are at least 10 people that are planning on going that I am excited to see again.

Hello.samtaylorskykierajen, i did attend to the high school reunion,i was happy to see how my high schoold friends had been doing lately,the feeling was special when i saw them had changed alot,i could not recognize some of them:P,some of them even got married already. Some of the people do not want to attend because they did not want to see their high school friends had been doing much better than them, there might be some comparisions between them and you might feel unhappy.

I am happy to hear that you had such a good time . I am trying to decide weather this is something I would like to do or not . It is nice to hear from someone who did attend their own and enjoyed it very much . Thank you for your response .

My 10th is coming up but I haven't decided if I'm going or not. I would like to see people since for the most part I haven't seen anyone since graduation but at the same time I didn't really have very many friends in my graduating class so I don't know if there's really much point. Also the planning committee decided to have a family style picnic at the community building practically by my house. I can go either way because this. On one hand it'll be convenient to go and might seem rude not to go. But it's also not a very exciting place to be and it's not likely there will be much time for adult conversation if everyone brings their kids. At last count we had over 70 children between us, with all but 2 under the age of 10...I just don't see how any good can come from that, especially considering there's not a lot of space where the reunion is being held. The other thing that makes me think "why bother?" is that not only is is a "bring a dish to pass" but it's also "BYOB", I might as well fix myself dinner, pour a glass of milk and stay home with my own family! Oh and the big one that shows the planning committee weren't thinking when they planned this...it's on Labor Day weekend...you know the weekend that families like to spend together enjoying the "last weekend of summer", taking vacations, going to carnivals etc....

Ya whoever was in the planning for that didn't sound like they put a lot of thought into it . My class is thinking of having one this year and I am like you and not sure weather or not I am going to attend and for a lot of the reasons you mentioned above . I hope you have a great night whatever you decide . Thank you for your response .

I did not attend my high school reunion. I was very shy in school and never really got out of being shy. I was afraid no one would want to talk to me, or if they did i wouldn't know what to talk about. The friends I had in school I still have today and that is all I really need.

I haven't gone to any of my class reunions. I graduated in 1990. When the 10 year came around we were living in California and had already made plans to visit home in July, so there was no way we could make the trip again (2400 miles one way) in September. We didn't have the vacation or the money. I don't know if there have been others since then or not. I've never been interested in going. I have found some of the people I went to school with via MySpace, but I haven't had to desire to go back.

Yes I did, it was one of the most memorable reunions that I have attended since our classmates brought their families with them and its nice to see those little kids and the proud parents. It was a sight to envy, i am very much single and I still dont have hose cute things with me. I know I will have one sooner or later.

I haven't attended yet our high school reunion because we haven't got one yet. I think it would be held about 4 years from now. I will certainly attend just to see my old friends and reconnect. I am definitely looking forward to it. Though most of them, I have been keeping tabs with through friendster but there are a lot of them that I haven't heard nor seen of anymore and is looking forward to see them again.

No, I did not attend my high school reunion. I didn't really see the point.
