Damn, reading your post made me reminisce about my childhood friends, I don't know why. I suddenly remembered all the good times we had and the bad shit we got ourselves into. Sadly, I'm not good friends with one of my childhood friends anymore. Sorry about my random babbling, I just wanted to speak my heart out, hahaha!!!

Typical anime scenario

I have a group of friends (5 guys, 5 girls) who I've been friends with ever since I was little. We're still friends to this day and still get together and hang out.

And just recently in March, I started having feelings for one of the girls. Very anime like, I'm trying to get closer to her without going too fast. i'm doing pretty good so far, serenading her with my guitar playing skills She definitely wife-material.

I have one. Our relationship is cartoonish in the sense that he's become like an alien creature to me, the dude just gets crazier every year. He never went to college; doesn't ever read books; has a million paranoid conspiracy theories; moved to the Netherlands so he could smoke pot; shacked up with some dutch chick and has a couple kids out of wedlock; refuses to get a job; claims that he's a genius, but will mention that he has a learning disability in the same sentence; thought the world was going to end in 2012 because of the Mayan prophecy; thinks the pyramids were built by UFOs; thinks evolution is a lie; never actually took a single biology course; thinks global warming is fake, but will also claim that global warming is real, but it's because the sun's getting hotter; has never taken a single physics class; won't vaccinate his kids because he thinks it's poison; doesn't understand germ theory; often remarks that all scientists world wide are in some kind of joint-conspiracy to cover up the truth, right to my face, like as if I'm not a scientist; forgets nearly everything he says to people and retells the same stories repeatedly...

If I didn't love him, I would have strangled him years ago. I saw him over the summer and his two girls were super adorable. I bought them all kinds of Toys-R-Us junk and stared at them wondering what it's going to be like for them to grow up with a total lunatic for a father. He does love them to pieces though, so that gives me some hope.

I once did, but then we moved away from each other and he was the same age as me and we met again when we like teens and it was just like woah because I still remembered him. But I don't really talk to him much now \:

Heh, sounds like a romance story from an anime, except there's no romance. hahaha.

I had a few childhood friends when I was growing up.

One of them was this boy and we became best friends in kindergarten when he fell and started crying and I helped him up. From then on we did a lot of things together, we even rode the same bus. For a while me and him were always competing for the #1 student in our class. But as time went on, I became more social with other classmates and he kept staying to himself with books. He was very intelligent but had poor social skills, I was his only competition but I was better socially. It was in 5th grade when he said he was going to move to the Coachella area, since his mom worked in the hospital over there. I was sad that he left, and now we don't really talk since he moved to another state and is hating the world, blaming everyone for his social-related problems. His mom wanted me to talk to him but he just ignores any messages I send his way.

There was another boy that I knew from kindergarten. We didn't talk much but our moms knew each other. He went to the same catholic church as I did, we ended up making our first communion together and altar servers for our church for over 5 years. He was the one that got me into anime and video games and I'm so grateful for that. We were in the same class together from kindergarten to my sophomore year of high school, when I decided to transfer to improve myself and to stay in a competitive band and join an orchestra. We still talk to this very day, but he has a very jealous girlfriend who thinks I'm trying to steal him. But his mom and I still talk and she confides in me like her older daughter about my dear friend.

The third childhood friend was also a boy (apparently I got along with boys better than I did with girls lol) that I knew from kindergarten. His family owned the local bar and restaurant. I remember he got held back when we were in 1st grade because he couldn't read that well. But we still kept in touch, and we ended up being in martial arts together for a while before they cut the program due to me and him being the only middle school students in our small town that attended. His mom was always nice, but she passed away during my freshman year of high school. I attended the funeral for his mom and he was glad I was there. We still talk, and he acts like an older brother to me.

I eventually befriended a few girls but we have lost contact. Everything changed for us when we got to high school and I joined the band. Some made their way into the popular crowd, others found their way into other groups. I transferred high schools after my sophomore years but I lost contact with those girls. Today I have 3 of the 5 girls I knew from kindergarten on facebook as friends, but we don't talk that much anymore.

It is a bit sad, but nice, to think back about my childhood. Most of the time I was busy doing volunteer work but I'm glad to say I did have friends who supported me during a crisis I had in middle school. All of the girls I knew have kids now, not sure where the dad is for any of them. But I guess I'm happy for them :)

oh god yeah I did..

Well I guess I should explain. When I was younger, me and my cousin/childhood friend which lives right next door, always hung out together, she always wanted to hang out with me, while I always pushed her away from me.. I made her do things so stupid, things that I wont talk about on here.. Just because of my messed up brain back then, ugh .. It ended up with her just leaving me alone and then we almost never talked again, of course we didn't end on any bad terms, when we meet now it's never that awkward...for her, because she doesn't remember those days too well, but it's really hard for me, because I just wish I did things differently now when I look back on those days. I don't really think so much of us being 'friends' anymore, now it's only cousins, because of how much I pushed her away from me adn I don't know even if I have the right to become her friend once again-.-

I don't have one in the sense anime depicts it. At that age we were pretty segregated due to interests; you can see this during lunch with boys on one side of the room and girls on the other. While I had a lot of male childhood friends (though I don't remember their names or faces anymore ), I can say with absolute confidence had ZERO female friends at that age (then again Forgotten Childhood Friend IS a trope too, maybe I have one I don't remember lol).

That said, it might be that I don't have one is the reason why I'm so crazy about the trope, at least opposite gender childhood friend romance. You know how in Genshiken one of the cast mentions that only those without blood-related sisters are the only ones who fantasize about sisters as romantic interest? I think it's the same with me here. XD
