5 Things That Happen When Your Best Friend Lives Far Away

My best friend is called Olivia and we have known each other ever since she was born (she's almost a year younger than me.) We lived in the same town until Year 6 when her family moved back to Leicester, where her parents are from. Leicester is a 3 1/2 hour drive from Brighton so it's fair to say we don't see each other all that much anymore.  However that hasn't stopped our friendship, in fact in someways I think it's made it stronger! It's definitely hard to not be able to just pop round each other's houses whenever we want to, but with the growth of social media it's easier to stay in contact with long distance friends now more than ever! Social media also has given many people the chance to become friends with people they've never even met who live too far away to see in person, so I'm sure many of you can relate! I was supposed to see Olivia this weekend but life got in the way and we had to end up cancelling, so this post is for her! Just to say I love ya and I miss ya and lets please meet up soon!

1) You know all about their home friends even though you haven't even met half of them - And they know all about yours, too!

2) They're always the one you to tell all your secrets to before anyone else - Maybe because they're far away so they wouldn't really be able to tell anyone else, but also because they're your BFF so you trust them more than anyone else!

3) You send each other the most un flattering snapchats - Often whilst your on the toilet. I don't know why or how it started but it's a thing now.

4) You've become like a virtual member of the family - Whenever you're on Skype you have to pass the laptop round so they can say hi to all of your family members, even the dog.

5) You can go weeks at a time without talking, but can pick it up again like nothing's changed - You both understand that sometimes life gets in the way of things but that doesn't mean you stop being best friends. Plus you get to have a massive catch up session which is always fab!
