When your friends live far away

You gladly walk into hostile football territory and sit next to the opposing side’s fans.

You unpack your entire house in record time to host a friends’ weekend one month after moving to a new house.

You worry that they might forget how much they mean to you.

You watch their children grow over Facebook/Instagram.

You discuss arranging marriages for your children so you’ll have a lifetime of excuses to get together.

When your friends live far away

You have to work hard to keep in touch.

You miss out on the little moments. The walks in the neighborhood and the quick chats over coffee.
