From Project BFF HQ, Terri + Manya riff about long distance friendships.
How do you stay connected with friends who live far away? Is there extra work to stay connected? Just because there may be a limited amount of time you can spend in real life with you friend, doesn't mean you can't still do things together. Research shows that friendships can flourish even without in person interactions.
Also, we end with the slightly alarming thought, which we will pick up in a future episode and examine in more detail: "We replace half our close friends every seven years. The ones who tend to make it are the ones we figure out how to maintain past changes.” (Shasta Nelson, friendship expert and author of Frientimacy)
