Just like relationships, long-distance friendships can be challenging, but when that friendship is sincere, there is no distance that can disrupt it.
Long-distance friendships are really special, and below you can read 10 reasons that make them even more special.
1. YOU KNOW HOW TO APPRECIATE EVERY COMMON MOMENT
Even though life between your best friend and you have put you hundreds of miles, and even seas, oceans, continents … it is precise because of that distance that the two of you will especially appreciate every moment you spend together.
Every moment together will be sacred to you and you will dedicate yourself to it with the utmost attention.
2. CREATIVE WAYS TO KEEP IN CONTACT
Best friends who separate miles are especially creative in devising ways to stay in touch. It takes extra effort to maintain contact when you can’t see each other regularly, but such challenges can be fun.
Long-distance friendship includes a bunch of fun messages, e-mails, video chats that can include drinking gin and tonics … The options are many, and most importantly, the distance at the end of the day does not affect the connection between the two of you.
3. NEW LIFE EXPERIENCES
When your best friend and you live in remote locations, you can use that distance as a travel opportunity. You always have a place you can travel to without too much expense. On the other hand, you always have a person you can’t wait to come to visit, and there’s a third option – a halfway meeting and another shared adventure.
4. YOU REALLY CARE
Sometimes in life, we have relationships that survive only because of closeness, but a long-distance friendship that survives all challenges is real proof that you really care about your friend and that it is a relationship worth keeping no matter how many miles apart.
5. YOU ALWAYS HAVE SOMETHING YOU CAN LOOK FOR
Life is such that you can’t know at all times exactly when you will see someone, however having a friend who lives far away from you means you always have reason to rejoice, and that is your encounter that will surely happen at some point.
6. YOU HAVE A PERSON WHO LAUGHS / COMFORTS YOU
Even if your friend doesn’t live near you, some things never change. Regardless of her location, she is a person who will always know how to make you laugh and cheer you up when things don’t go according to plan.
7. THE MOMENT WHEN YOU FINALLY SEE YOU
We all know how good it feels when we finally get something we’ve wanted for a long time and the feeling that is created when after a long time we finally see our best friend is incomparably better.
8. YOU RARELY ARGUE
The moments you spend together are so precious to you that you won’t spend them on quarrels, and even when quarrels do happen, you’ll find a way to resolve them quickly because you don’t want to waste time on nonsense.
9. SENSE OF STABILITY
Life is constantly changing. People finish school, get married, have children, find a job, change jobs, move to another city, divorce … However, a relationship that lasts for years regardless of distance will always be there to give you a sense of stability regardless of all life changes.
10. LIFELONG FRIENDSHIP
A relationship that has been full of challenges for years is one that you can almost certainly say will last a lifetime, and one day, who knows, life might reunite you in the same location. Whether it happened or not, best friend and you will always know how to make the most of what life has to offer.
