Also I meant to say that even though my adult relationships may not be as close they are more selective iykwim. I'm friends with ppl I share interests with iykwim. Not just friends because we went to school together.
None of my school friends made it through my relationship with my ex, they all essentially turned a blind eye and deserted me.
I've only JUST started to make friends again, and the friendships are different, but perhaps with time they will evolve?
I guess the difference between friendships when you are a teen vs friendships when you are an adult are huge and more complicated now than then.
My best friend and I have been best friends since Preschool, we have gone through everything together. I keep in touch with a few friends from primary school, and most people I was good friends with in high school I am still close with. So yes I still have most of my friends from high school.
I have one friend whom I'm still friends with from school, we've been friends for almost 20 years! We've had our ups and downs but we know each other really well now because of them and our friendship is stronger than ever. It's been amazing to have been able to share weddings, pregnancy, babies etc with each other, we consider ourselves to be very lucky :-) I have one other adult friend who I've only known a few years but it feels like we've known each other for alot longer, we click :-)

I moved outta town the moment I graduated from highschool, couldnt wait. All the people I were friends with branched out but seem to make time to catch up, I dont get many invites but I do remain in touch on facebook etc. One girl I still talk to quite often but I dont confide in her like I would with my adult friends now
I consider my girlfriends I have now like my family. (And yes Chels, Lexa and Rach and Annalisa, talking about you! :P )
Until age 31 I was still close with my school friends, but not now. I am married to my school friends brother though, but we weren't actually close in school. (and aren't that close now)
I still speak to my uni friends but again not as much (we were at uni for 5 years together so got really close aswell)
And I don't work out of home, so it's harder to connect with anyone I see everyday. I'm probably closer to my online friends actually.
I'm still in contact with two school friends. We don't see each other that regularly but when we do it's like high school all over again. Ie non stop chatter
I would say I have 4 close friends, 2 of which are school friends, one was the girlfriend of a school friend and one is my neighbour, who I met about 18 months ago.
Lately, I feel closer to my neighbour than the other friends, but we spend a lot of time together, and we have a lot in common.
My school friends and I don't see each other all that often but when we do it seems like no time has passed.
Still friends with a few from school. 2 I'm particularly close with. One I've been best friends with for 27 years and the other, 17 years.
