When your friend is away, there are like million things you guys want to do together, and the bond between the two of you does not seem the same way as it was before. But getting disheartened about this will only make things worse.
So, you need to find ways and ideas on how to maintain a long-distance friendship. It is you guys only who can devise plans to keep the spark alive in your friendship. "Whoopee, buddy time!"
Discussing all the happenings and events will give you a glimpse about each other's life and sharing stories of daily updates will keep you connected and draw you closer.
You can forward funny messages and images and share gaming links. These small acts will help maintain your friendship. Your friend may not be able to check her messages or accounts every time you send, but at the end of the day, it will surely cheer him/her up.
Communication will keep your friendship alive. With advent of technology, you can feel you are with your buddy in real, even if you lives miles apart.
Skype, Face-time, Google-Hangout makes all your gossips live, sometimes there is loads to share, while sometimes funny stares, faces, and winks will weave the magic of adding charm to your friendship. A video chat may not be possible all the time, so calls and text will do through WhatsApp, Viber, Nimbuzz, Wechat.
If the question is 'how?' Then answer is 'online'. If you like to visit stores together then that too is possible with you trying your dress and sending selfies to your friend.
Share statuses on Facebook, tweet your thoughts and events on Twitter, WhatsApp special images, and Instagram your adventure and tour album. You can also create accounts in Pinterest and then share DIYs and recipes.
When you start a new book, series, or movie, keep your Skype or Hangout on; you can discuss as you read the same book, or you can gasp and giggle as your favorite actor makes an entry. You can even sing together the title track of the series. At first it may seem weird, but with time you will definitely enjoy it.
Along with online wishes, send your warm wishes and love through gifts. Make a little extra effort to prepare handmade cards and gifts. You can also send handwritten letters, this is sure to make your friend feel special.
Make promises to carry those secrets to your grave. It may sound a little dramatic, yet keep your promise and seriously mean it.
Let not the miles ever affect your friendship, always keep in mind your friend is one in a billion, and you can go to any extent to keep your friendship going.
