To say that our best friends are invaluable to us would be an understatement. After all, what would we do without our close friends in life, right? Unfortunately, the pandemic has changed the way we interact with our BFFs. Between long WFH hours and fewer social gatherings, it’s become challenging to plan a night out with our friends. However, not getting enough time to catch up is no excuse for not staying in touch. Here’s how you can ensure that your friendship remains strong even if you don’t meet your fave person frequently.
Token Of Love
Sending over a thoughtful gift is a great way of letting your BFF know how much they mean to you and that you’re thinking of them. We’re not suggesting that you send them an expensive OTT gift. On the contrary, sending them their fave meal or a potted plant would mean a lot to them and we’re sure that your gesture would be well appreciated.
Share Funny Memes
Sharing a funny meme, or a GIF, or even a random WhatsApp joke is a quick way to keep it light and share a laugh with your friend. Doing so shows that they’re in your thoughts and how much you value them.
Plan A Virtual Event
There’s a reason Zoom parties were quite popular last year. Pick a day when the two of you are free and schedule a cocktail-making party night with your best friend where the two of you’ll follow a recipe together, enjoy it and talk about what’s up in your respective lives.
Play Online Games
Playing games online is a surefire way of bonding with your friend. From Ludo to Scrabble— there are tons of online games to choose from that you and your BFF will enjoy. Go ahead, download the one that the two of you like best and make sure to at least play a match every two to three days.
Plan A Trip
With more and more countries finally opening their borders, now would be a great time to plan that trip the two of you have been planning for years. Pick a place, check out the country’s rules and regulations and book your tickets ASAP.
A friendship where the two of you don’t get to chill often may seem difficult to maintain, but it doesn’t have to be. As long as the two of you know how important you are to each other, distance doesn’t really matter.
