… with my BFF/MOH. 🙁
She lives about 3 hours away in my hometown. I get to see her like once a month but I totally miss her. I saw her two weeks ago and we spent the whooooole weekend together, it was SO much fun.
Last night we had a phone chat, but everytime I hang up the phone I just feel so sad. I don’t have a lot of friends here and the ones I do have are just… buh. I don’t know. I can’t talk to them like I can talk to her. I always feel like I have watch what I say around my other friends or can’t be myself. It’s so weird.
Anyways, I’m just feeling lonely and sorry myself. Feel free to ignore this.
Is anyone else in an LDR with their close friends?

Oof, I am in an LDR with all of my old friends. I remember feeling the same way – that all my new friends were just kind of blah compared to my old friends. A year and a half after moving, I have friends who come close to being my BFF in my new city, that I can chat with and tell more personal things to. It took a while to find the “right” people to feel more like myself, and I remember thinking that no one really knew me. My good friends now still don’t compare to my BFF (she’s got years on them, how could they?) and I miss her, but it does get better!

Yes! I traded in my two best friends for my husband when I moved here 🙁
I love being near him, but I sure miss them.
We talk on Skype every couple of weeks for a few hours, and if we go too long, I start to really get depressed. It’s been tough making those same deep relationships with new friends here. 🙁

@TinyTina: I’m in an LDR with all my close friends, I moved to be with my FI and it totally sucks! It’s silly but I even thought I might lose some just because we aren’t phone people. So far, we still keep in touch and see each other every once in awhile but its not the same. It’s hard moving and meeting new people because you don’t want to replace the good friends that you have and especially in the beginning, you can’t talk to them like you can with your good friends. Hang in there and look forward to the next time you hang out!

I’m in an LDR with one of my best friends too! Her BF lives across the country and she’s been staying there. At first it was about half-time but now it’s more like full time and I MISS HER like crazy! She doesn’t Skype. But when we talk on the phone, it’s for hours.

@TinyTina: Me too! My best friend from college has always lived anywhere from 3 hours away to across the country. We average one-two visits per year and text pretty much every day. Sometimes we’ll have three separate convos in text, Facebook and email at the same time. Lol. I miss her. I don’t really have any close friends near me and I’ve been feeling particularly lonely about it lately, so I totally feel your pain!

Yup, my MOH lives in Vegas and I only get to see her when she comes home at Christmas and maybe during the summer if I’m lucky. We talk on the phone when we can, and email the rest of the time, but I miss her like crazy. I’m so excited that she’ll be back in a couple of weeks for the wedding!
