As college season approaches, the time to say bye to your bestie is getting closer and closer. You guys have been as thick as thieves since day one so of course this new change is going to freak you out, even if you’ve done it before! You have different majors, you’re going to different schools, and you’ll both meet so many new and awesome people. As much as it sucks, these things can make it harder to keep that long-distance relationship going strong.

Is the solution changing your career path? Transferring schools? Becoming so introverted you hiss at the sight of new people?

No. No. And for the love of God no!

The goal isn’t to change, the goal is to adapt.

And here are some ways you can do it.

Don’t get me wrong, it still hurts seeing them on a screen knowing you’re still miles apart, but it’s so much better when you actually get to see their face and talk about your day.
