So for everyone who lived in one place k-12 then went away to college for university/ bachelors then did grad school do you have better friends from growing up (k-12), friends from university(undergrad) or friends from university(grad school) if you all did grad schools.

I think it depends on the people you were friends with. For me, I have better friends from college, and a few good friends from Grad School. But my sister, has a great group of friends from high school.

I have 1 BFF that has been my BFF since I was 13, so 25 years now. Everyone else from high school I only keep in touch with on Facebook. College and grad school are he same – Facebook, I don’t actually talk to anyone from either other than FB updates.
Most of my best friends now are from work honestly. I’m 38 though so that may play a part – all of those school experiences were a LONG time ago 🙂

I have one friend from when I was younger, but she and I are basically sisters — we’ve been friends since we were babies. I do not keep in touch with anyone from K-12 other than through Facebook. My best friends in the world are from college, and then I have one friend from graduate school.
I grew up in New Hampshire and now live in Pennsylvania.

I have really good friends from highschool. My *main* group of friends are mostly from that time with a few people joining in since then. I don’t have any ongoing friendships from before highschool though

My closest friends are from high school! But I also didn’t make many friends in undergrad (I was dating a total psycho then).

i went to school with the same group of people from k-12. then, everyone scattered for college.
i keep in contact with a lot of the people i grew up with, but not all of them i’d consider my friends.

I do have really really good friends from University.
I do have xmas card friends from doing my masters but by that time I had my friends, was living not with students, working and it was only a year.
My very very good friends (all in the same group)are a mach up of my school friends (mostly 11+ so high school) and OHs school friends with 2 of his uni friends thrown in.
Slightly different as I went to Uni in the same city I grew up in as did a lot of my friends or they went only an hour or so away. Big city with very very very good unis (but I did move out of home)

@Ap2010: I have better friends from college and grad school. I went to college and grad school in the same state and have never left!

@Ap2010: I have no friends from when I was a child– well, one who I keep in touch with very casually and almost nevrr see; One “best friend” from college who I talk to every couple months (but it’s one of those friendships where even if you don’t talk for ages, it’s like you just saw each other when you finally do talk on the phone). And I have 2 very close friends at grad school, though I’m not sure how good we all are at keeping up with faraway friends, so I’m not sure how close we’ll be once we’re done and go our separate ways.
I also have casual friends where I live with my SO when I’m not at grad school. I’m really hoping I meet more potential friends here at home, since my 3 best friends will be scattered across the country once 2 of them and I are done with grad school.

@Ap2010: I met all of my very best friends in middle school. I only really have 1 friend from college that i keep in touch with, and I’ve tried by best to forget the D-bags I met in law school. I guess I’m just not that good at making friends anymore.

@Ap2010: It’s tough for me because I did K-12 in Europe, moved to the USA when I was going to start college, and I did my entire 4-year degree in two years, so I could not make long-lasting friendships because the people I started school with were sophmores when I graduated college, so we did not have the same classes, and totally different schedules. I then went to law school, and that was the first time since I moved from Europe that I was able to make more lasting friendships. I actually practice law with one of my former classmates.
The fact that I met my husband at 18, and was extremely busy doing college and working part time also did not help in the friendship department because any free time I had, I wanted to spend with him. I have lost contact with a lot of people I went to school with K-12.

I have great friends from all three.
I had girls in my wedding from High School and College.
I met my husband in Graduate School.
And I have a couple of good friends that I met in recent years post school.
We all live in different states but stay close. Even the more recent friends I made because I recently moved across country yet again to a different state. Although we met some couples here already that we have been doing a lot with in the last couple of months.

My absolute best friends are from college, though one I met in high school (we went to a summer program together) and reconnected with in college. I have a few friends from grad school that I casually keep in touch with.
For K-12… I have one friend that I have been friends with since kindergarten, but we stay in touch very sporadically now. I also have a friend from high school that I recently reconnected with and we text now and then.
