I was just thinking back on high school a bit, and I got to thinking... if I knew myself back then, there's no way we could ever be friends. I've changed SO much that he'd probably hate me... although I personally believe most of the changes were for the better.

What about you, would you get along well with your past self? You can pick whatever time you'd like for that... doesn't have to be you from high school.

I think if I met my past self, we would be friends. I gotta admit that I DID change a lot, even personality wise. We would be friends, but not the best of friends tho. Maybe just like know each other or something? :C

I'm so bad at explaining.

After every year that passes I always feel like a completely different person. I feel that every year I have gained more wisdom and knowledge. Also I feel like each year I get a lot more mature. Ill look back at old posts or texts or something and ill think I can't believe I said that. I think that if I met myself from a year or a few years ago I would think he was a lot less mature than I am today, so I don't think we would get along haha.

I would think I was a stuck up, pompous idiot. Definitely not friends because I was so stuck up and quiet, pretended to be emo, and was stupid.

My past self would probably be ashamed of my present self because my past self was an uptight jerk who couldn't relax. I'd punch him in the face and tell him to be a man.

my past self would probably be best friends with me now. although i have changed in many ways, i always wanted to be this way and still have my old morals and logical thinking (old me and current me hate people with illogical thinking). plus, i literally had no friends up until just about 2 years ago, just the kids my mom would let me play with, so he'd be happy have a companion.

Would 13 year old me like present day me? Can't say, although 13 year old me was an idiot. You be the judge of that.

Would future me like present me? I'd say yes. I mean, I'm really friendly with everyone, and I've done all I wanted to do. Not much worked out, but at least I try. I figure future me would respect that.

Hmm, it's a tough one for me. I've definitely changed, but sometimes I'll change in a matter of weeks/months...like say exactly a month ago? I'd be a depressed loner clinging onto a girl I'd never have...and right now looking at it objectively...I had no business with her and she didn't want anything to do with me.

Now? I've been happier, more focused, and doing whatever I want without worrying about what people think. So as it stands...I think personality wise I'd get along with my past-self...I've always been the analytical/critical type so we'd be fine hanging out hah

I've had at least one significant change every year, and it seems to almost never end. Let's just say that, the further we go back, the less I could see myself being a friend to present day me.

I do not think a 12 year old me and me today would ever be friends if could meet 12 year old Kerri. As an 12 I was a real nightmare for my teachers/family who had one 1 friend a boy with downs.

I'd fall in love with myself and have beautiful babies. We'd get on wonderfully I think, I'm just the kind of person at the moment to approach my former self which is all my former self needed to become friends with someone! I'd teach him how to play guitar and go squirrel watching and it would be wonderful. ekekek.

Probably not. I constantly realize how idiotic I used to be (and still am), so I doubt I would get along well with myself. I:

I don't think I've changed enough that I'd hate myself, but I know if I met my past self, I'd give her a good slap across the face and tell her to get a grip.

The old me is so embarrassing to the now me. I wouldn't want to be friends, but I would be nice and friendly in my interactions with old me if I had to. I wasn't an easy person to get along with and I know I'd frustrate myself now.

I'm embarrassed of my 12 year old- teenage self and I'd probably wouldn't be friends but I would talk with him. The way I was back then I regret being like now.

Hmm. Interesting.

I'd love to be friends with my past self, but I don't know if my past self would feel the same.

My past self was happy, friendly, and innocent. I like that "me" more than the current "me".

I don't think I've changed all that much over the years, actually... so I think my younger self would get along just fine with my current self. The biggest adjustment would have to be in regards to my anime fandom which was nonexistent back then... and the fact that I don't embrace new technology as readily as I did when I was younger.

I'd definitely be my friend. Or at least I'd want to (I'm not so good with the whole 'socializing' gig)

Anyway, I am pretty awesome, so yeah, I'd want to be my friend, for sure!

I think we'd get along, but I'd end up getting a bit tired of my former self. I was a lot harder on myself back then than I am now, and the way I was living was much more restricted because I didn't have the confidence to do anything, which after a while can get a bit boring for the people around you lol

I don't think we would get along. Some of my biggest pet peeves about people are due to myself doing it in the past, such as people being overly judgmental of alcohol consumption and sex. I would be exasperated with my past self for thinking these things, and my past self would be disappointed in me for not following past me's ideals and turning into one of those "preps" that she hated so much.

I feel I've changed so much that we definitely could not be friends, mainly because I was shy (still am a little) plus meeting past me would be really awkward just because I know what he's going to do and all xD

When I was a kid, I was a really goody-goody kind of kid. Loved doing the right thing. Believed in God and his eternal love or w/e. I lost all of that in high school.

Me, now, would probably shock everyone. I would probably scare the crap out of kid-me, and I would probably be the coolest person ever to high school-me. See, I was a huge loser in high school, but in college I got hot and did all of this cool (occasionally illegal) stuff. Highschool-me would probably cry tears of happiness to see just how much better life got for me. Actually, I wish I could go back in time as me now so I could tell past-me that it really, really gets better and life is worth it.

I'd be friends with my second-grade-self. I was popular, by child-standards, and I had incredibly high grades. Me, at this moment, changed a lot -- from appearance, of course, to my personality.

I think I'd be friends with my past self, but I don't know how strong the friendship would be. I was a lot more closed off when I was younger, and while I'm still not a massively open book nowadays, I'm definitely a lot better than I used to be. We'd probably be able to have conversations about anything, but I don't know if I'd really get to know my old self (despite being him all those years ago...)
