Do you still hang out with any of your friends from high school?

    It's funny how people grow apart over the years. Even my best friend all through HS, we only hang out maybe once a month and even live in the same town.

    Time to time I'll see friends at the bar or just out and talk for 5 or so minutes, but that's really it.

    Some people look down and people who hang out with friends from HS which in some ways I can understand, but that's only when it gets to like ALLLL of your friends are from back in HS.

    Anywho I was just curious to see what other people think/experience

    Sadly, no. I keep in contact with a lot of them on facebook but given that I don't live where I grew up any longer I rarely see them. My high school 10 year reunion is next summer and if I can make it it would be the first time I've seen some of my old classmates since our graduation party.

    the ONLY people i hang out with are from high school. a select few are some of my friends' college friends that have integrated into our group.

    i had a shitload of high school friends, but our core group has dwindled down to like 20ish over the years. and even among them some have moved away, but we dont skip a beat when they come back to da Jerz

    I still have some friends from high school and I'm 40. Some I see twice a month, some twice a year, but we still hang out.

    We had a "turning 40" vacation together at a lake recently. 10 friends and their families.

    No, I don't. Not because I don't want too but because we've all had to move with college/careers. We're scattered from Cali, New York, Florida, South Carolina, New Orleans and North Carolina.

    I only been outta high school for 4 months and I already kinda lost touch lol. There were 5 of us that were close friends all throughout high school, 3 of them went to the same college, one went to another college and I went to university and live on campus. I'll prolly see them in the summer but if we all stay at dif institutions we'll prolly end up with new friends to hang out with which sucks to think about.

    Yes, the ones I've known since elementary school. They haven't changed though from their high school days, and that is the problem why I don't hang out with them a lot just occasionally.

    Nope, I don't have anything in common with them anymore. They're all either alcoholic losers or have families.

    Yes. I have a tight knit circle of about 7 good friends and most of them I met in elementary or Junior High. 2 of them I got to know during the high school era. We're all really close still; text, call and Skype a decent amount.
