  • SO has several. I'm not over 40 and I have none. I didn't really get along with many in my school since I wasn't prone to the whole 'click' thing.

  • Yes, one wonderful lady that I consider the sister God never gave me.

  • I'm 37, so almost there! I have a few friends that I've had since 5th grade, when we moved here. I'm not as close with them as I was when younger (having a child with autism has cemented my friendship with other moms of autistic kids - "in the trenches together" so to speak), but we do still get together.

  • Yes my very first friend I met in 1st grade is still my very best friend. I dont get to see her very often but shes still my best friend. I have several friends that I met in Jr. High. They are still considered my best of friends. The only friend that I had growing up that I no longer consider my friend is my younger sister! Thats actually a blessing for me.

  • Yep I have a couple. One that I have known since high school and the other since elementary. We don't live near one another but we managed to keep in touch through the years.
