I can say that I do not keep in contact with all of the friends I had when I was in school,and some of them I barely remember and do not know where they are or what they are doing,I do still hang out with some of my friends from high school,even though most of them I do not see,and I barely trust them because they owe me a lot of money and they never come around unless they want something,I do hang out with one of my best friends that I made in high school,he is like my brother and me and my fiance hang out with him whenever we can,and he calls me almost every night so we can talk.

I met my best friend in seventh grade, over 41 year ago. That's the only year that we attended the same school. She moved and went to a different school but we still stayed in constant contact. Then, when she was sixteen she moved 400 miles away to live with her grandma, finished high school and got married. I was sick and couldn't attend her wedding. We had occasional contact mainly through letters because long distance phone calls were pretty pricey back then. Then I got married and she was there. I moved around a bit during my first marriage but whenever she came to visit her parents, she always found me. Through the years we would lose contact for a bit but always managed to catch up with each other. Today, we're still best friends. We don't get to spend as much time together as we would like, being busy with work and family. We see each other at least twice a year, which isn't enough, but we talk several times a week to keep up each other's life. So don't give up on your friend and make an effort to contact her. It will be worth it in the long run. Having a life long friend is a precious gift.

4 months is not so bad, hurry up and give that friend a call before 4 months becomes a year, and a year becomes 5. I am still friends with my best friend with high school and we graduated 24 years ago. We both are married and both have three kids and live about 40 minutes from each other so it is hard to get together, but we talk on the phone, email and try to get together at least twice a year, once with the husbands and once without. We are very comforted in knowing that if either of us ever needs anything the other will be there for them. Try to see your friend now while you are still young, it gets even more difficult as you get older.

i lose contact with my closest friend for 3 times already i guess. once was when i was in kindergarden. i think US call it preschool. i had a very close friend and we were always in contact. but just suddenly, we somehow stop contacting each othere and now we lost contact. the 2nd one was i was graduating from primary school. i had known that guy for 8 yrs when i was graduating and we have a small argument just before graduating and after that we stop contacting each other and therefore we lost contact just like that. and the 3rd one was the worse, i had known that guy for 12 years already and i dunno why he suddenly had depression and does not want to meet anyone anymore. he does not even come to school. and when we go to his house just to look for him and he just chase us away. and therefore we felt it was good to stay away for awhile and this awhile has taken a few years.

life after graduation is really an adjustment period for everyone.... we are all trying to adjust to the situation that we are facing now.....there are friends who will stay and there are friends who will disappear..... it is a fact of life.... we just have to accept it....

This happens very often since most people don't feel like hanging out anymore with their friends once they graduate. I think that this is very sad because a friendship should remain the same even after graduation. I still have some friends who still keep in touch ,but I have other friends who don't even want to be bother.

I will tell you the bitter truth,i think i will be more happy than regretting losing any friends,it's a good thing though staying in contact with friends and collegues but when the relationship is getting to close and affecting your family,it is when you have to be careful of your relationship with them. I wish you the best in all your relationships.

I have lost my friends when i graduate from high school too. They started having new friends and so am i. I dont bother it at all since i know it is impossible for us to hang out knowing that we went to a different school. When i was in college too its pretty hard to stick to a friend since most of my classmates took different courses and so am i. I have acquaintances and have a bestfriend since i was 19 but we never have time to hang out since were both busy. But so far our friendship is doing good inspite the fact that we dont spend time with each other anymore except through texting.
