    I would be curious too, but realistically, most of the people I was in school with aren't worth meeting again. I wasn't exactly bullied, but I was ignored apart from a few close friends. I am still in touch with anyone I did like, so there wouldn't be any need to go.

    Plus I am still a failure in life, and would probably be embarrassed by most of them!

    I would! We didn't have a 5 year reunion. I have a lot of people from highschool on Facebook (I didn't have Facebook in high school, so they were added later). A lot of them I would like to see again, even if we don't talk regularly. We were actually a fairly tight-knit group, at least those of us in my program were.

    I doubt I would go - I'm perfectly happy not seeing any of those people ever again lol! I have four or five good friends from high school that I see on a regular basis, and that's enough.

    I went to my 30 year reunion last year and had a blast. We are all aging and there was no snobbery or anything like that, we all just went to party and have a good time. I had a great time in high school so it was like coming home again.

    I would not go... and I wouldn't even know where to go to as I went to so many highschools haha. But I was not liked at any of them and don't talk to anyone from highschool.

    I would like to invisibly and remotely spy for like 15 minutes. I'd be kinda curious, there might be some shocker that's kind of fun (I dont' have facebook and ditto RD, I sometimes attended, left ASAP and never formed relationships with anyone there). But is it worth like 4 hours of my day, awkward chatting, etc. NO lol.

    I wont' get invited to one and if I do I will not go, not unless I am able to remotely and invisibly spy at that point in time.

    I was too far away to make mine in the past so it was a non-issue.

    If I nearby in the future I may go. Kind of neutral really...not particularly attached to very many people I graduated with but got along well enough with them all and shared a rather significant portion of my life with them (small school). Would be entertaining to see how many I even recognize nowadays...lol

    But the real question is: Can I bring my dog? ;)

    Seeing as I'm a freshman in high school now, a reunion would be a rather pointless thing. And I feel like similar events exist solely to clog up my evening or weekend. I get enough of the people I go to school with at school, thank you very much, and most of my close friends go to a better district.
    I don't know what I'd do about a reunion in twenty or so years, though.
