Do you have a long-distance friend? It can be tough having a friend that you don’t see often, but for some people, their long-distance friend is one of the most important people in their life.
Check out these 12 great things that only long-distance friends would understand:
1. You Are Used To Spending A Lot Of Time On The Computer
The computer = the easiest way to talk to your long-distance friend. You are regularly online at 2am chatting to each other and posting adorable pictures of puppies you found on Instagram on each other’s walls.
2. Your Friendship Has Grown Stronger
When a friend moves away, either you stop talking or you make an effort to stay in each other’s lives. Your bond has grown stronger now that you both have to make an effort to stay in each other’s lives.
3. You Love Planning Future Visits
You have a savings plan in place, and you two constantly discuss visiting each other. It may be half a year away, but you can’t wait to drink wine together while taking silly selfies.
4. When Anything Important Happens, You Update them
Sister got engaged? Co-worker got fired? Trying a new diet? All absolutely essential things you must let your long-distance friend know about. In fact, you need to check in and find out how her new morning workout routine is going.
5. You Know You Have A Friend Forever
Some friends come and go, but you know this friendship is for life; after all, your long-distance friend lives further away than your parents but somehow you visit her more often than them. Oops.
6. You Love To Reminisce Together
You still start laughing when you think about the time you two went to a water theme park, and your long-distance friend loves to bring up the time you drunkenly fell down their stairs. Lots of people roll their eyes when they realize you’re talking about the same stories over and over again, but you know they will still be hilarious when you’re both 80.
7. You Always Know How To Make Each Other Smile
It doesn’t matter that your long-distance friend isn’t always there because your best memories are all about the times you’ve spent with each other. You are always seeing things that would make them smile, so you make sure to tell them about it later.
8. You Never Fight With Each Other
You don’t really have anything to argue about anyway, but you both treasure the friendship too much to let anything ruin it. Time is precious, and you would rather laugh and smile with your long-distance friend than fight with them.
9. You Always Have A Place To Stay
If you fancy taking a last minute trip out to see them, you know you don’t even have to ask; as long as they have a home, you have a place to stay.
10. When You Finally See Each Other, It Is Better Than You Imagined
After a few months of not seeing each other, you sometimes worry that it will be awkward and strange when you see them – but it never is. You’re already laughing within the first minute of seeing them.
11. Your Long-Distance Friend Can Make You Laugh With Just A Sentence
You both find each other hilarious and interesting, and your online conversations are often even better than the face-to-face conversations you have with your local friends. Sometimes your long-distance friend only has to send you an emoji and you will start laughing.
12. Your Long-Distance Friend Always Has Your Back
While they may not live near you, your long-distance friend always has your back. From relationships ending, to troubles at work, they are always willing to listen to you vent about the people who have upset you.
