I have lived 1000 miles away from my daughter, who is also my best friend for the past 6 years. It’s very painful for me. but I am moving back within the year.

The longest I’ve gone without seeing a friend is five months because she was studying abroad in Paris. One of my best friends goes to school at UCSC (about two hours away) and I see her about every two or three months at least. Another one of my best friends lives less than ten minutes away and I see her pretty much every day. <3

Well i used to live in New Zealand and i had great friends over there that i have been friends with since i was 7 (I’m 16 now) and then my parents up and move me to Tasmania (that crappy little island on the bottom of Australia) and so now i see them once a year when My family go back to New Zealand for New Years.

friends are like ants… They are everywhere. Have a picnic, make yourself available, and new ones will find you.

I’ve lived in a different country to my old friends for over 8 years. We stay in touch over phone, email and occasional visits (once every 1–2 years).
It changes your relationship, but makes it all the more special when you do get together.
