    Finally Made A Bff And Can't Even Get To Hang Out.

    I have always been the type of person who makes a lot of friends, but only has one truly close friend. The gal I thought was my BFF from high school ended up nearly costing me a spouse and a job, so I was without any close friends for years. Then I met my twin. I swear the only...

    State to State

    The past five years have given me an amazing opportunity to grow and learn.  Living in four different states (and regions) in five years is a great opportunity to learn about different ways of life.  The places I've lived have ranged from major metropolitan areas to...

    SO Many Miles Away

    I miss my friend in Camp Hill, Pennsylvania. Oh, sure, we keep in touch, but an occasional letter or card at Christmas, or our respective birthdays, or Mother's Day (a tradition I began to honor after my first visit out to Harrisburg in 1983) doesn't quite match up. I have many...

    There Is No Place Like Home

    I think I have made a couple really good friends on EP. But most of them live far far away, which really sucks because it would be so cool to have someone to hang out with. But with the new job searching going on, I guess; I'll have close friends to bug. Being a stuck home mom...

    "You're So Far Away, Doesn't Anybody Stay In One Place Anymore?"

    My best friend lives so far away from me. It's strange though, because I think that's one of the reasons why we've managed to stay friends for so long. But I miss him incredibly and I get jealous a lot of his other friends who can see him, spend time with him. But this is how it...

    Closer

    If we were closer, we could share lots more together. We could go out and laugh every once in a while, yet distance makes it pretty challenging.

    Most of my best friends are penpals, people I've never physically met and yet I love them. When I'm bored I sometimes catch myself thinking, "If I lived in _____________ I would totally call up ________________ and ask if they were busy. I wonder what we'd do." I...

    When Things Are Difficult...

    ...there isn't much to be done from a different time zone,is there? It's frustrating. Is there some unwritten rule which decrees "All of thy EP friends shall live at least three hours flight time away - further if you really connect"?

    My one friend, my only remaining flesh and blood friend in my life at the moment, only makes it around my parts once a year. He lives in another country, so at what point does the term "friend" become "close acquaintance"?
