I’m not sure that I understand the question, but I only have two friends that I’ve known since elementary school.

Of 9 BMs, I’ve known one since age 4, one since age 7 (MOH), one since age 10, and one since age 12-13. The others are college/law school friends and family.

I am still friends with people I went to grade school with starting almost 30 years ago now, but we are not close.  They are all married with children and I’m not – we don’t have much in common in that regard.

My BFF/MOH – we have been best friends since she moved to my town in 3rd grade. 

I am also still friendly with my group of friends from middle school/high school, but only two of them are invited to my wedding.  I still think of my college friends and wish them the best, but only one of them (and her DH, who was also in our group) is invited to the wedding. However, I wasn’t invited to their wedding last month, and I don’t really expect them to fly across the country for mine. I had lots of great friends/acquaintances in grad school, but none so close that they are invited to the wedding.

I am still friends with three people I went to middle school with even though we all went to different high schools. One of them is a BM in my wedding.

@outgoingcutie15:  I have one friend I’ve had since we were five, and then a bunch from middle school I’m still close with.

I met my FI first when I was 4!

Other than that, I don’t have any friends from primary school.  I have a suprising amount from secondary school (11-18) probably about 10.

I have less from university, probably only 3 or 4.

None.  I moved away from where I lived in grade school.  I kept in touch for a little while but pre email era, it did not last for 25 years…..

I have kept in touch with several high school friends even though my parents moved away from there after my graduation as well.  About 2 in regular contact, 2 irregular but pick up right where we left off when I see them, 1 ex that just texted me (irregular contact) I need to reply to, another ex I’ve kept in a little better contact, and about 2 more friends I see when I visit but it’s a little awkward at times.

My bridesmaid I’ve known since grade 7 (the other is my sister). She is the only person from elementary/junior/high school I still talk to. I have several university friends but we don’t see each other nearly as often as we did in school. My closest friends these days are people I work with.

birth (aka family friends): 4

elementary school: 4 friends (all from first grade!)

middle school: 4 friends

high school: 2 friends (but all of the previous friends went to high school with me)

college: 8 or so, but they’re all guys and I met them through SO, so I don’t really hang out with them one on one

post college: 3 (spouse of a college friend, and one couple where the husband is SO’s coworker)

grad school: I’m still in grad school, but I have about 5 friends that I hang out with/see regularly


these are just friends that I’ve actually hung out with/make plans with, etc…(aka the people I would invite to my wedding if I made the list right now)

I have a lot of other people that I’ve been friends with over that years that I occasionally contact via facebook or the like, so I consider them friends, but I don’t really hang out with them nowadays

….I have a lot of friends haha
