Seven Awesome Things About Your Long Distance Bestie

Seven Awesome Things About Your Long Distance Bestie

Whether you made friends at uni or met online, your favourite folks may live on the other side of the country or the world but no distance could ever come between you. Sure it’s hard sometimes, but who wouldn’t want a best friend like yours? Here’s seven awesome things about your long distance bestie… add your own in the comments!!

// When you see each other, it’s like you were never apart. There’s never a lull in conversation and you don’t need to spend time catching up on each other’s lives because you constantly stalk each other on social media.

// Random one line texts and Facebook messages reminding you of a private joke make your whole freaking day. Messages make you burst out laughing at work, but no one could ever explain why they’re so funny outside of the group. Inevitably your colleagues think you’re a massive weirdo.

// You can have the best time chatting online without even leaving the sofa or getting dressed. Your Facebook messages are full of sticker wars and thank God for Skype calls. Ain’t technology grand!?

// Every time you see your long distance bestie you get presents!! Meeting up is always for someone’s birthday or you’re catching up from Christmas. Your friendship just becomes opening presents and eating cake!

// When you do see each other you make so much more of an effort to do something fun. There’s always a new bar or super tasty restaurant to take them to when they visit and you just have to stay up late chatting to make the most of your time together.

// When you hang out, you practically live with each other. You really appreciate the simple things because they are so rare, like watching TV in your jammies together. They also make the best nap partners.

// There are so many more excuses for holidays! Forget the diet, you’re on holiday. Sure you can go on that shopping spree, you’re on holiday. Let’s order another bottle of wine, we’re on holiday!

SEVEN: Ways To Cheer Up A Friend

Roses, Flowers, Nature, Summer

1 // Pop round with a bottle of wine/dvd/tub of ice cream. Make sure they’re free first, especially if they’ve been feeling stressed or upset.

2 // Snail mail! If you can’t visit easily or your schedules don’t match up, why not send your friend a sweet gift? You can get some low priced, special gifts from Etsy or you could get some flowers delivered to their office.. even just pop some of their favourite sweeties in the post with a handwritten letter from their bestie.

3 // Give them some space. If your friend has been very busy at work, stressed with family problems or perhaps suffering from depression the best thing for them might actually be some time alone to relax and get their bits together. Sometimes letting a friend ‘off the hook’ for social gatherings can really help to relieve the guilt, relax them and get them back on track again. It’s not that they don’t love you, so let them know you understand that.

4 // Social network love! Send them some silly links on Facebook or give them a shout out on Twitter. If they fancy a certain actor or love a certain song, email them a picture or video. This works great for those silly ‘private jokes’ that no-one else understands. A quick “I saw this and thought of you” posted to my Facebook wall always brightens up my day.

5 // Gift handmade! Bake them a cake or invite them round for a home cooked meal. If you’re super crafty you could even make them some jewellery or a fun flower crown.

6 // Ask them how they’re doing. Arrange to spend time together on a day out, night in or even on the phone and make it all about them. Ask them what’s going on and really listen instead of wittering away about what you’ve been up to. A friend did this for me recently and it felt so therapeutic to really pour it all out.

7  // Lend them that dress of yours they love or your gorgeous TV box set. The latter could even fuel your friendship and give you even more things in common.. like you need any more, of course ;)

Go forth and cheer up a friend, if you’ve got any other ideas or a cute story of something nice you did feel free to share them in the comments or tweet me and I’ll retweet the best!

Loves x xx
