    Mine was my best friend was a boy on my street, Ceci. He hung out everyday with the other kids, including Nick, Jessie, Micheal, my bro(Isaac), and sometimes Jillian and Cole. When had so many times together, good times. Then they all moved...

    I'm on the verge of crying while writing this message. No wait, I am. No one could ever replace them ever again.

    Mine were Kelsey and Tracy. We took a Spit Sister vow when we were 8 or 9. Those were the days my friend. We've lived 5 houses down from each other our entire lives. I tell ya you can't make friends like the ones you had when you were a kid, i'm thankful they're both still in my life.

    Do be, do be. My childhood basically died because of our parting...

    At age 5 and before, I didn't have many friends of my own and usually just tagged along with my brother and his friends-- I thought I was "too mature" for kids my own age...

    I had about 3 really good friends at the ages of 5 - 9, we had our own club and did everything together. At age 9, I met another kid, and he's pretty much one of my two best friends today. Everyone else has sorta come and gone, especially the chicks in my life...

    My best childhood friend was and still is RJ member CACZLAD.

    I've known him for 7 years now.

    We were born on the same day right next to each other yet we never really knew each other until we were both 7 years old.

    What are the odds of that huh?

    The people who lived around me. Funny how all my best friends happened to live within walking distance from me.

    OR WAS IT THAT BECAUSE THEY WERE SO CLOSE, THEY BECAME MY BEST FRIENDS, SHOWING THAT NO HUMAN RELATIONSHIPS ARE SPECIAL, ITS JUST THE ARBITRARY LABELS WE PUT ON THINGS TO MAKE OURSELVES FEEL BETTER ABOUT THE POWERLESSNESS WE HAVE OVER OUR OWN LIVES!?

    I'm sorry, I felt the need to blow ya'lls mind real quick right there.

    To tell you the truth, I've never had any best friend's lasting beyond 3-5 years time. It seemed parents and/or religion always got in the way, or if they were reasonable people, they always moved away.

    I started out hanging with these two kids on my block when I was around 4-6. We used to literally hang out just about every day, till our parents stopped letting us hang out all the time because we "needed to learn how to deal alone". I dunno weather this was a good thing or not, because after they moved away, I learned how to deal by myself probably more than most other people, to the point that I'm pretty much a quasi-social hermit.

    Later on, at around 10, my sister's via the richer side of the family, got a house for their college years. I got to spend the night at their house, and I'd hang out with all the different kids on the block until my age became an issue with some of them, we hung out till I was around 15-16ish, with some coming and going in the mean time. We used to walk the creeks, hike the woods, walk the streets to downtown Auburn on weekends, and just literally were like kings of the town at that age. We all ran in age from the oldest being 15 to the youngest being aroung 5-7ish or so (younger siblings of my friends mostly). Those were some of the best times of my life till that god awful age of 13 hit (goddamn school and it's popularity contests).

    Of course, there was also Nintendo-Roundabout as I like to call it, that is, you all gather at one friend's house for gaming, and when you are told "it's a nice day outside" you head to another friend's house to play more games....it was rad.

    Bikes were a big thing for the most of us, me being the daredevil of the lot.

    when i was about 5 or so, my best friend was Lance. he eventually moved to another town. i think i saw him once or twice after that. after that it was my friend Jason who i met in 2nd grade and we're still very good friends. he's my retro-nerd friend and we talk about 80s stuff all the time. i've known J for 23 years now if my math is correct. otherwise i've always been close friends with my cousin ryan.

    good thread!

    My best friend when I was little was this girl named Selvi who lived down the street from me. We hung out like every day and played barbie, my little pony and video games and stuff. Then she moved away when I was like 9, and sadly we never kept in touch. She was my first real friend though. I miss you Selvi. =(

    Mine was a kid named Scott Manard. Knew him for two years (4th-5th grade) and haven't seen him since (almost 10 years now). I recently looked him up on MySpace and sent him a message. Turns out he's gay and hates my guts for some reason. He even has an entire Facebook group of people who hate him. Go figure.

    Starting when I was three or four it was a kid named John. He had every transformer and G.I. Joe ever (we're talking '82-'8. We used to run around in the woods all the time and have a blast. Then we moved to a neighboring county and I only got to see him twice a year or so. At that point we used to have these semi annual sleep overs that lasted for days.

    He was that kid that was alway testing boundries. I can't believe some of the stuff he got me to do. When I was in high school his family went off the deep end and split up. I was at his house once after that and he showed me the pump action 12 guage he kept next to his bed and announced his intention of what he would do if his dad ever came around again (yikes!).

    I saw him one more time after that in 1998. He was pretty bad off looking. I ran into his mom at my sister's funeral and she told me that he was in North Carolina working in contruction, living with a girl and had a kid.

    Elliott; he left me in 2005 to ruins! BTW, my older one from 1989 had the same 3rd grade teacher as I did. He left me right before hurricane gordon hit me.

    I'm kind of with Mad-Mike: I seemed to change my best friends a lot.

    From K-2nd or so, I had the same best friend.

    Then from 3rd-7th, there were two new buddies I called my best friends.

    Then about the start of high school, I started hanging around with another new group.


    I still hang out with that last group to this day, and will probably be friends with him for life. The first best friend is part of this most recent group. One of the two from the 3rd-7th grade period is now my mortal enemy; the other I see maybe once a month. We're mutual friends, but we hardly ever hang our, or even talk, for that matter.

    The first best friend I can remember was a girl called Tracey. I met her in my neighbourhood when we were 5. We were the best of friends for 2 years before my Father (who was in the Bitish Army) got posted back to Germany, where we had been before. We parted company with a lot of people in that neighbourhood and I haven't seen Tracey since.

    The next best friends were a pair of brothers, Peter and Andrew Pollard. Me and Peter hit it off and were so close, people mistook us for Brothers. Our friendship lasted one glorious year between 1990 and 1991. Then, one day as I returned from school, I was told they were gone. They had waited to say good bye, but their transport came early and wasn't for hanging around (bloody Army drivers!) That gutted me. You might as well have told me they were run down by a truck, the effect would have been the same. I sulked for 2 weeks, nay, I mourned.
    But then, my next best friend cheered me up. Mark. We did everything together.
    But, in July 1992 his Father received orders to report to some Airbase in the UK, and off they went. Mark and I got to say goodbye though. I didn't see him for 14 years until one day a message arrived over Friendsreunited.com from him in April 2006. We met up again and we're still best friends. Honestly, its like the last 14 years never happened. As if our friendship was a VHS tape and someone pressed pause in July 92 and hit again play in April 06.

    My friend Jimmy and my friend Austin were my childhood friends. We used to play at the arcade together and skate together when we got older.

    My best friends as a kid were Wendy, Kelly, Olivia, Stephanie, Sladjana, Matt, Tommy, and James. I went to grade school with all of them. I still talk to Kelly and Stephanie to this day. But as for Wendy, Olivia, Sladjana, Tommy, and James I havent spoken or seen them since 8th grade. Matt I use to hang with and talk to while I was in HS, and lost touch shortly after I graduated HS. Its so crazy how time separates people.
