6 things you know if you have a long distance best friend

Posted: by Rhian Monday, 20 June 2016 @ 11:45

I remember leaving school and thinking I’d never find friends as special as the ones I already had, then I went to university and met the five most incredible women, thinking I’d ‘completed’ friendship I then moved again only to meet ‘my wife’ housemate and bestie extraordinaire. As we get older, jobs change and so do our postcodes, babies arrive and so do our calendars, but one thing stays the same, those precious friendships.

I can't help but think friendship is a kind of magic, I don’t know how you find each other in this universe, but when you do, in the words of Baz Luhrman…  

‘Understand that friends come and go, but for the precious few you should hold on’

Here are my friendship moments that you'll relate to if you're long distance best friends...

When you can’t say goodbye


You’ll stick to a ‘see you soon’ or completely ignore the fact that your living arrangements are changing, because making it final is just too hard.


But then you get back together


It’s the scene that makes me cry every time, because it reminds me of the excitement of the stars aligning and you all being in the same place at the same time. Cue screams and hyperventilation!


Your catch ups are scheduled


You put specific time aside for a good old catch up, it's in the diary, the wine is poured and you will not be disturbed!


The sixth sense


You have a sixth friendship sense, (or a knack of reading between the lines of their latest social update) but you just know something's up, you’re calling them asap!


When your friend is hurt


You were right, something is up, well hell hath no fury like a friend scorned, and if someone’s hurt your bestie then you’re more hurt than you would be if it’d happened to you.

The rest of your lives



You may not live together, you may not be in the same city/country/continent but with true friendships that doesn’t matter. You may not speak for months, but when you do it’ll be like nothing has changed – because soul mates are for life!
