You have many friends on this site, so don't think you are alone. (Hope that doesn't sound creepy as thats not what I meant!!)

I know how you feel. I'm going to college in the fall, and it seems like everyone else is going to leave me behind. A few of my friends are either not going to college or are still in high school. So, I feel like they're all just going to forget me when I leave. They've already started moving on, which kind of hurts. I'm sorry.

Do you have my email address? If not, let me know! Or, if you have a MySpace, we can communicate that way. :) Feel better!

Y'all know you aren't alone. It took me a while to learn this, but you will find the right group of loyal people just by being who you are.

I am 41 and I have 3 friends from high school whom I still see regularly (as much as possible - 4 of us live in 4 different parts of the country). We could call each other with a problem right now as if no time or distance is between us.

Of course when I was 17-18, I thought I had about 35 friends in high school!! I mean, we all wrote "friends 4ever" in each other's yearbooks! But then, I thought my boyfriend in high school would be my love forever!!!! AH HAH HAH HAH!!

You'll do fine. There are dear friends out there you have yet to meet.

And you always have us. Sorry. :^)

I have one friend from high school. Of course he lives 2400 miles away, just outside Philadelphia. Things happen, people change, etc. (My friend is the Haitian man I am trying to get on here. He is a Nurse Practioner with two clinics in Camden, NJ).

We can also see how the power of modern technology and the World Wide Web has brought us all together here. I certainly could not imagine such a thing when I graduated high school.

I have 2 friends from primary school - one of which I have been best friends with since we were 8, (45 years - where did the time go lol) after she moved to my school and I was asked to 'look after' the new girl. The other I have been best friends with since 11, although I had known her for years. We used to go round in a group of three.

We meet up as often as we can for a meal and (mostly) chinwag but not as often as we would like because of distance and commitments.

The point I'm making here is that good friends never go away. Between us we have had 4 marriages, 2 divorces, 8 children, 5 grandchildren (I think!) and lots of laughter, tears and good (and bad) memories!! We have all made new friends in our journey through life, but we are still there for each other.

You'll make new friends - but I'm sure that, if the friends you mention are good ones, they will always be in your life.

My oldest and dearest friend is someone known "before birth'! We always say it that way because both sets of our own parents were all childhood friends. We were born less than a month apart and were probably introduced to each other in when she was less than a month old as our parents were always visiting and showing us off to each other. Amazingly enough, we have never had a fight or argument in 59 years. We communicate daily by emal and live about 30 miles aprt so get together as often as time allows. We consider each other family. I could say almost the same thing about another set of parents who were childhood friends our our parents too and they are also very close "family members too". So, I consider myself pretty lucky to have all these old time people in my life. Of the 7 offspring in my age range, 2 have remained in close proximity and the others have moved out of state, but all still stay in touch.

And, now I have some dear friends from this web site that have made my life even richer. SO , stick around and you'll see Palinstravels is a good family.
