Use the Distance as an Excuse to Travel
If you and your best friend could live in the same city or town, of course you'd choose that option, but that isn't always a reality. So, make the best of the situation by using the distance as a reason to travel. Make the trip to see them, invite them to visit you, or plan a vacation together and meet somewhere new! My long-distance best friend and I made a pact to see each other in person at least once every six months. It gives us an opportunity to travel and explore together, which is something we probably wouldn't do if we lived in the same place.
