14 Things You'll Only Know If Your Best Friend Lives In a Different City To You
Absence makes the heart grow fonder
You still have 'dates'
You might be miles apart, but you still have to schedule time together - watching a movie together over Skype, a quick phone call or even just a Facebook chat are all important ways to schedule time together
Social media is incredibly important
Because you can't always hang out, you have to find other ways to catch up - Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, Snapchat... you name it, you're on it.
You spend most of your time narrating your life to each other in minute detail
Because your relationship is based mostly online, you often end up texting your BFF any time ANYTHING happens.
Your photo gallery is full of silly selfies
Your best friend loves you just as you are, so you never really bother sending your nice selfies - just the weird, ugly and silly ones.
You have an in-depth knowledge of who everyone they know is
Do they know anything about you? Probably not. But you know gossip about everyone your best friend hangs out with in their city, from their relationship status to their Twitter feeds - not that you ever let on when you finally meet them in person.
You miss them. A lot.
No matter how much you text, sometimes you just want a hug - and if you can't do that, it hurts.
And not being there when they're down hurts too.
Sometimes you just want to make them a cup of tea or sit quietly in their company.
You're more protective than ever.
If someone breaks her heart, the fact you can't be there in person makes you EVEN MORE MAD.
You spend a lot of money on train tickets...
A one way ticket is HOW much?!?
...but when you do meet up, it's AMAZING.
It's like falling in friendship-love all over again.
But when they go away again, you're even more sad.
As the old saying goes, you don't know what you've got until it's gone.
You're both incredibly thoughtful.
You make sure to make loads of small but thoughtful gestures - sending them videos they'll like, making them playlists or sending them little presents through the post.
Sometimes you get jealous...
Sometimes your BFF looks like she's having a way better time with her local friends and it makes you sad...
...but deep down you know your friendship is irreplacable
Underneath it all, you know that you'll always be best friends, no matter how far away - absence makes the heart grow fonder, after all
