How long have you known your oldest friend?

And I'm not talking facebook friends or things like that... friends you actually talk to and see on occasion.

I was just looking at photos of a friend's wedding - a friend I went to elementary school with, not someone I really know now), and there were at least 10 people we went to elementary with, just all hanging out together at the wedding... for the most part, they started in preschool together and went all the way to grade 12 and graduated together. I'm so jealous... I loved that town until I moved away when I was 12 years old, and I think it's awesome that they're still friends.

I, on the other hand... don't see people from that long ago. The oldest friend I actually see is one from high school, who I've known since grade 10. So... about 8 years. It's still pretty good that we're still friends, I think!
My best friend, who I live with and see every day, I've only known for a year and a half. :P

  • I have known my longest friend since I was in 7th grade..I do still talk to friends from 2 grade although we all live so far apart from each other that we don't hang out that much. My friend from 7th grade I still hang out with and that was 24 years ago. My other close friends I have known for 9 years and I met them through my kids.

  • 29 years. Met in 6th grade. Went to middle school together and she moved in high school but we still visited each other and stuff. We talk every day on the phone and email every day. The other friends I have known for about 25 yrs and some are only a couple of years. But I seem to hang on to friends. We all realise that we have lives and that it is fine. We are all glad for fb, email and texting to help talk to each other. We get together when we have time and it is nice to be around people that have known you a long time and still want to be friends.
