If someone were to tell me that my best friend would be living in a different province then me, and because of this, our friendship would be stronger I probably wouldn’t believe it. People look at long distance friendships (and even relationships) like its some sort of doomsday waiting to happen. In some cases, people do drift apart. But close or far, that friendship was probably going to drift apart anyway. Distance isn’t an excuse, it’s just a bump in the road. People grow apart, or they simply don’t make an effort, that’s the reason these friendships don’t last. Long distance doesn’t have to be some scary concept.
A Best Friend is someone who is honest, someone you can count on, laugh with, cry with and most importantly, rant with. A Best Friend is someone you can go without seeing for weeks, months or even years but when you get together, it’s like nothing has changed. If you ever get worried about your bestie moving far away, check out my reasons as to why it’s not all that bad.
Long Distance? No problem. Here’s 7 reasons why:
You talk all the time
Seriously. All of the time. It doesn’t matter if it’s
The time differences can work in your favour
My best friend is two hours behind me, so if it’s 11:00 PM and I can’t sleep I damn well know she’s going to be up because it’s only 9:00 PM there. Use time difference to your advantage my friends.
Epic travel o
We haven’t explored this option yet, but when your best friend lives in another country, province or just anywhere where you (sadly) are not, you can go visit them and explore. This helps form an even better friendship and some great memories. Not to mention, you always have a place to crash!
Your time together is valuable
When you see a friend every day, it’s important but it’s not as special. I see my best friend probably once a year, so when we plan to get together we plan way in advance and we make the most of our time that we have. It’s also like she never left, we pick up anywhere we want and just talk. It’s that easy. But when she has to go I do feel like a part of me just left, but I know she’ll message me in record time.
You talk on every Social Media platform
Our main source of talking is
You’re a proud f
It’s one thing to graduate college or university and get a job in your field, it’s another thing to do all of that and then move out of province, state, or the country. It takes motivation and guts, and that’s what my best friend has. She’s managed to move to not one but two different provinces, get a good job and make a life for herself. It’s admirable, and I can honestly say I’m super proud of her.
Three words…Epic bitch sessions
This happens with every friend, but when your bestie and you let it all out it turns into an epic Netflix reality show where you two are the main stars complaining about everyone and everything. Doesn’t matter if you guys are worlds apart, that just means you can use more memes and you can say whatever you want. More likely then not, I don’t know the person she’s complaining about and vise
All in all, near or far, your best friend is your best friend. They are there to root for you, politely insult you, laugh with you (or laugh at you), cry with you but more importantly, they are always going to be there for you. High five to my bestie, you rock!
