16 Things Only Long Distance BFF's Understand

1. Different time zones are difficult to work with but you always know what time it is for them. 

2. Not always seeing each other can be a downer but thank goodness for social media. 

3. A Skype session has one person drunk and the other barely waking up but makes for a funny story later. 

4. Liking and commenting on every tweet, status, and picture they post because you love seeing what they're doing but are still mad you aren't there. 

5. You send each other snaps all the time of stupid little things just because you can. 

6. You get jealous of people in photos with them or doing things with them because you'd love to be there. 

7. Planning time to get together takes time and money but is well worth it. 

8. When they're in town you drop everything to be with them. 

9. When something goes wrong you try your best to comfort them and wish you could be right beside them. 

10. Sometimes there is a time lapse between messages but it's always understandable. 

11. Yet sometimes in dire situations you're able to get an immediate response as if they know something is up. 

12. Getting a response on whether or not something looks cute can take time but you know their honesty won't fail you. 

13. You're always the last one to like or comment on something because everyone else got to see it first while you were asleep. 

14. There's no separating the two of you when you're together. 

15. You can act completely ridiculous in videos you send to each other and not care. 

16. No matter what you have each other's backs no matter the distance. 


  1. These are so true! I miss my bestie!

  2. I can totally relate to this, I've lived in a few different countries and my best friend has stayed in the Uk but we always keep in touch :)

    1. Right? See, that's just dedication being able to stay in touch. We've got it all worked out. (:

  3. Snapchat is so important and useful for a friendship. My bff and I are not necessarily as far as yours but we still snap like we are. Great post darling.

    1. Send all the snaps you want. They're the best and so much fun. I mean I get strange looks for being a goofball at times but it's worth it. (:

  4. I totally agree with you!!!


  5. These are so true! I live in a tiny village and most of my friends are down south in the big cities, so whilst we don't have a time difference, things like Twitter and Snapchat are essential... and result in some very funny conversations!

    1. Even without the time difference distance gets in the way as well. Yay for those funny conversations!

  6. I relate to some of these so much! My best friend is in the marines and some of these are so us!

    1. Kudos to your best friend joining the marines. I'm glad you two still keep in touch! (:
