Heartwarming Long Distance Friendship Messages

message in a bottle on rocks

I’m lucky I was given a chance to meet someone like you. Whatever happens and wherever we are, I’ll always treasure you because I know I’ll never have another friend like you.

Sunshine or rain, friends always soothe the pain. Morning or night, best friends make everything alright. Near or far, I know where you are.

We should remember and care about our friends not only while we’re together, but when they’re far away. Long-distance friendship is the strongest one.

Throughout my life, everyone could see the tears in my eyes but only you could feel the pain in my heart. Thanks for being my friend, wherever we are in the world.

We may not have each other’s company every day like before. But deep in our hearts, we two are so strongly connected that nothing can tear us apart.

No distance can weaken our friendship. We will always be on each other’s thoughts as long as there is a word called friendship in the dictionary!

Our friendship will always grow stronger regardless of the distance that separates us or the time that passes. We are friends for life and always will be!

We may not share the same space anymore but we have shared some of the most colorful memories in our lives together. Our friendship will grow stronger every time we think of them.

Since you are away from me, my days are spent thinking of you and remembering the moments we have shared together! I hope you are thinking of me too.

People may move from one place to another, but memories stay in the same place forever, that is in our hearts. It’s those memories that keep us connected forever!

Don’t measure the distance by the length of a meter or a mile but in terms of our hearts. It is far away but not by heart. You and I will always be best friends.

Not even the greatest distance can end a friendship as beautiful as ours, I am sad you are so far away but I know that we will always be very close.

I want to tell you that no one could replace you because you are still my favorite friend, and I hope to see you soon. Remember that I am always thinking of you.

Friends are like a second family, do not let the distance or lack of time keep you away from them. If we always keep communicating and then our friendship will become much stronger every day.

I still cannot get used to my days without you. I know that there will be no friend like you in my life, so I can’t wait until we’re close in miles but we’ll always be close in our hearts.

Without you, sometimes I feel bored and your absence causes pain to my heart. And after that, I feel very lucky to have someone so special like you to miss. Thinking of you!

A true friendship is not affected by how far the two people are. I miss you friend and I will always remember the special times we spent together and look forward to the special times we’ll have in the future. 

I haven’t seen you in a while, yet I often imagine all your expressions. I haven’t spoken to you recently, but many times I hear your thoughts. Best friends don’t always have to be with each other. It is the feeling of oneness when distant that proves a lasting friendship.

We love, we care and we feel for each other. Even though many miles separate us, our hearts will never apart. We will be the crazy, stupid and weird best friend forever!

If friendship is sincere it will last throughout our whole lives, it may be that our friends are absent for some time, but that does not affect the bond that unites us.
