Well one of my best friends is an old school friend, plus I still have regular contact with a few others and sporadic catch ups with many others school friends.
My adult friends don't know as much about me, I guess. I have work friends, mothers group friends, friends I lived with overseas, gym friends and I guess they all know me in a different way. Although, they'd all probably say I was loud and straightforward
I do see my friend from mothers group the most. Apart from my gym friends and mothers group friends, I don't have any other groups of friends close to me at all. Work friends are at least 50km away, school friends about 100km away.

Nope. I never see any of them nor do i want anything to do with them. From stories i have heard, they are just as bad as they were in school.
There is one person i am friends with. We have known eachother for almost our entire life. We met in primary school, went to highschool together and also worked our first job together.
With friends i have made since being out of school, well i havent really met many that i have been able to keep as friends.

Life is so different now,obviously I have changed a fair bit since I was a silly schoolgirl I moved to Oz,so left all my school friends behind...I am not close to any of them now as we are seriously worlds apart.
I love all my friends now,we are all really close but of course friendships are not the same as when I was in school (and had aalll the time in the world LOL)

My best friends are all my school friends. I have made friends outside of high school of course, but my closest friends will always be my school friends. As others say, they have been through everything with me - they are like my sisters *sheds nostalgic tear*

I'm still in contact with all my childhood friends but I don't really consider most of them friends these days. They are more like acquaintances now. Things just change I guess. It doesn't bother me too much as I have made new friends who I have a lot more in common with now.

I didn't realise so many people stayed friends with their school friends! I couldn't think of anything worse than having to still hang out with all those people. Then again I wasn't really part of a 'group' at school - not many people there I really clicked with. I didn't find people like me until I got to Uni and left all the catty social heirachy of highschool behind.
So I guess the answer to the question is yes, much closer!

My 2 closest friends are from high school. Although dh and I have friends as a couple I have not made any very close friendships since those two. I don't know why I have wondered maybe I'm not as friendly and open as I was when I was a teen.

4 of my closest friends are from my high school days and my best mate I met in year 1. My 2 other close friends I met during our crazy clubbing days when I was 21.
I find it so hard to compare my older adult relationships to those that I met earlier in my life. I feel these people know me so well and we have been through a lot together.
Because I'm blessed with these long term friendships I think maybe I dont make the effort to work on new ones. I do have other friends but they will never be on par with my nearest and dearest.
Maybe I'm too closed off and not giving new friendships the chance.
