True friends are like stars... you can't always see them, but you know they're always there.
Have you ever had a long distance friendship? We'd love you to tell us about it!
How did you become friends? What caused the distance? How far away are you from your friend now? How do you maintain a friendship over distance? Do you see each other often?
What are some strategies to keep the friendship alive? We want your stories of heartache, hilarity and hope as well as ideas on how to stay close friends no matter how far apart life takes you!
Go for 300-500 words. Email to firstname.lastname@example.org with 'long distance friends – your name' in the subject.
Please check your friend is OK with you writing about the friendship, too.
