Christina, what changed is that you all grew up and developed different interests. Unfortunately it happens to us throughout our lives. I still care about my friends from high school and college, but as we grew up, we went our separate directions. (By the way, I graduated from high school 30 years ago.) This is true even with friends I have had at different jobs and throughout my life. When you are single, it is most likely that most of your friends will be single, but when you get married you will start losing some of those single friends and start making friends with others who are married. When my kids were younger and involved in activities, I developed friendships with the parents of my kid’s friends. As my kids got older, got involved in different activities and made new friends, some of the old friendships fell by the wayside. I still have friends from years ago that I know I can count on and they know they can always count on me, even if we don’t talk very often. The best thing to do is to enjoy and be grateful for the time we have with each person and try to learn something that improves our lives and us as individuals.

People never stops to change, and yes, you will loose a lot of them along the journey of life, especially after they get married and have children, or after they have become successful in life. I have experienced that too. But don't worry, as you grow older and working, you will find different new friends, because your activities and focus in life differs too. Some of my very old friends whom I thought have forgotten me, came back later in life, because they finally realized that the most innocent and pure friendship they had are the ones back in high school.
