Hi everyone!

Honest opinions... do friendships from high school last in the long run? Or after HSC does everyone just go off to uni, join the workforce, and meet completely different people / form new friends? Looking forward to hearing others experiences

basically friendships only last if both parties put effort to preserve it, that being said the uni period is most volatile in losing high school friends but also the easiest to gain new ones

better than most people think

the relationships you make in high school and university have a better chance of being meaningful and sustained over those made in any following period

every following year it becomes increasingly hard to make friends due to the priorities people alot their time, social identity barriers developed within pre-existing relationships and the reduced need for friendships resulting from family formation

This is true. I have friends from way back to primary school that I regret breaking apart from. They were all going to this one school, but I decided to go to a selective because I "got in" and thought I was better than them all, and could make better friends at a selective. Well a few years later, I found myself missing my old primary friends + the boyfriend I had, because selective school ppl can be nasty and there wasn't a strong enough connection compared to those I made in primary

you can for sure make friends in uni but my closest and i find most peoples, is their high school ones or people they knew from their time in high school.




its harder here to make friends but especially a circle or w/e at uni. the reason is because most people just carry over from high school as most people arent living on campus or moving states/far away
