10 Undeniable Reasons Why Your Long Distance Friend Is The One Who Will Be There, Always

‘Miles apart but never in heart’ is what I say to anybody who as much as raises a peep about me and my long distance friend. Actually, friend is an understatement. She is a bestie, for life- so, yeah, BFF! My long distance friend may be miles removed from me by some cruel stroke of fate or simply, this circus act we call life but technology does a little part in bringing us together. Our love seals the rest.

If you have a long distance friend too who’s stood by you through the treat and the sh*t, you can vouch she’s forever:

1. Your time together is the most special

The saddest part of a long distance friendship is not being able to hang around in person so much. And when you finally get a chance to step out of your virtual friendship platform, there’s nothing more precious than the little time you spend together.

Have a long weekend coming up and don’t know how to spend it? Well, you sure know where to go and you and your friend will definitely cook something up to do, right?

3. You have a 24×7 helpline

Well, I understand you don’t (can’t!) meet in person, but then this is a friend you can always text, call, and reach out any time you want – because they are your go-to person and have the solution to all your problems.

4. They make long-distance dating feel like a piece of cake

Now, that’s how you kill two birds with a single stone. With all the struggle part already aced with your friend, you know you can survive the rigors of your long distance relationship like a piece of cake.

5. You can pour your heart out without hesitation

Sometimes, the reactions of our partners make it hard for us to express ourselves, but the perks of having a long distance friend is that you can let yourself be and what you get in return is a response that will lift your spirits up- minus the eye rolls and judgment!

6. The wait makes you want to be with them all the more

It’s self-explanatory. When you want something – you just want it, but when you want something that’s not within your reach and have to wait for it– you want it bad, you crave and that’s the catch with which your long distance friendship becomes your personal brand of heroin, without you knowing it!

7. It teaches you unconditional love

What do you usually want from your friends – a shoulder to cry on, an ever-ready shopping buddy, the devil to spy on your ex with, and what not! But this is a friendship that gives you none of this and still brings you all the happiness you can ask for. Unconditional, right?

8. This friendship makes you more independent

Though you have a friend you can count on, all you depend on him is for the advice and motivation that’ll help you face the uphill battles life deals you and then, you are ready to get things done on your own – this independence is a gift of love, cherish it!

9. The understanding quotient in your relationship equation beats every other

Goes without saying, eh, girlfriends? 😉

When you’re miles apart and still choose to stick together – that’s all that makes the difference. It’s from the heart and it always will be.

Known for my laidback and chilled out attitude, I have always believed in making the most of life. I am candid, talkative and not your usual girl next door. With aspiration too big for these tiny eyes, I am looking to grow that perfect pair of wings which can help me visit the places I have only dreamed of. I am a blend of contradictions, an oxymoron in myself as you will find me splurging insanely on ridiculous stuff and the very next moment, I will sit outside my balcony and ponder on what life truly is. The wayward mind is often at crossroads, but then I trod the path that suits the mood. Being with too many friends who have relationship woes, I am now a pro at helping people sort out the mess life often becomes.
