I'm in a long-distance relationship. It's not one with a dude, but with my best friend.
We're half a country apart, limited to every-other-year vacations together, daily Snapchats and weekly phone calls. I'd almost say long-distance friendship is harder than the romantic kind because it isn't just date nights and bubble baths you miss.
It's the constant commitment, the being with you after you've eaten two boxes of mac 'n cheese. Sometimes, she'll even braid your hair if you're too lazy to do it.
Couples get engagement rings to pledge their undying love, so what do best friends get?
