    My 30 year one is this weekend. Have not gone to any of the other ones. I stay in touch with 2 friends from high school, and everyone else . . . . if I cared how they were doing, wouldn't we have been in touch?

    So my 2 friends I stay in touch with are not going. Plus it will be $150 bucks for me and my wife to go to some shitty buffet.

    So, does anyone have any good stories of high school reunions? Unsettled fights that got finished? Rekindled fire with old flames? Action in the bathroom? Did the jocks get fat? Did a geek wind up with a total hot chick wife? I'm looking for motivation to maybe go and see something interesting.

    Went to my 10 yr, and had a blast. It was so weird to see how much people changed in such a short time. And, yes, lots of the jocks were fat (and bald!!), as were a few of the prom queens. :giggle: But, it was great to see the people I was friends with back in high school.

    I missed my 20 yr., and I'm still pissed off about it. (It's a long, boring story, but it has to do with the fact that I was in grad school then)

    No one planned a 25 yr. Next year will be my 30th, and I'm hoping there's a committee working on it already. [​IMG]

    I remember running into about a half dozen classmates at a Police concert the night of our 5th. Every time we would pass each other in the lobby, we'd joke to the other that they were supposed to be at the reunion.

    I went to my 25th and really enjoyed myself. I still run with a few classmates and only a couple of them ended up going. I sat around a table for 10 during dinner and had some nice conversations with a couple women who I don't think I ever spoke to when we went to school. We actually joked about that. We had a mean priest who used to beat the shit out of kids for our principal and he showed up, only now as a frail 80 year old who would be dead soon. When he walked over to say hello to our table, I jokingly ducked my head and braced myself, thinking that only my one buddy would notice but the whole table started cracking up...some things you don't forget!

    It was fun to see who had held up. My experience was that some of the sleeper chicks from back in the day looked better than most of the first team. There were quite a few people who had changed so much I didn't know who they were until I looked at their name tags. One guy who had been a friend in some classes fell into that category and I felt like shit for not knowing him when he came up to me with a big smile.

    Barely made it out of Ridgemont High. I do not remember much from that period in my life.
    I'm told I had a lot of fun. Have not attended any of the reunions.
    There are definitely some girls I would love to see and reconnect with, but then again perhaps not.
    I'm quite happy with the limited memories and there is always Facebook if the urge to look anyone up overtakes me.

    I've never been invited to one, I wasn't all that social when I was in high school people probably don't even remember me.

    Didn't go to my 10th. May go to my 20th. God that's weird to write... I slayed 10% of the gash while attending. I'd love to add a few I missed over a long weekend if I decided to go

    20th a few years back

    LOTS of male patterned baldness and lots of 1991 pretty girls turned wrong end of the BMI chart women

    Was also surprised at the amount of 'ink'

    Glad I went, but depressing in a way, and also full of gratitude, in the sense as much as I hate I have aged, I am definitely in the good side of the hill......

    Ha ha you old fart. My 30 year reunion is this summer too!
    There's two chicks I'm friends with on Facebook that got really hot but they're both married and two really hot chicks in school that got really fat. I have no desire to go.

    I agree with this 100% My 30th was two years ago. I saw the pictures on Facebook. The same cliques from High School were the same cliques at the reunion. I didn't like those turds 30 years ago and I don't want to see them now.

    I went to my 20 and it was a real bummer. I didn't recognize anyone felt totally out of place. I wish I hadn't of gone and remembered high school as it was in my memories
    Plus I keep in touch with 2-3 guys I really like

    I haven't been. Facebook and Google pretty much lets me peek in on who I want to. The friends I want- I just reach out to them. Don't need help.
    But hey, different strokes for different folks. God bless those who like it.
