I have the most wonderful friend, through the internet would you believe. When we first introduced ourselves some years ago on a discussion forum where often it became heated, I wasn't always kind to her but she somehow didn't seem to believe that that was my way ( being hostile ) However she was right.
As the months and years went by we exchanged Birthday and Christmas cards and became close friends and a couple of years back she came to visit me. I was thrilled to meet this lovely, warm genuine person who I knew I'd feel comfortable with as we shared our lives.
We've phoned each other on many occasions and last night I rang her after too long a gap I might add, but it was though there hadn't been a gap as we picked up where we'd last finished speaking.
I think you know yourself that this isn't going to be just a " one-off " type of friendship because of the time you have for one another. We're both interested in each other's lives and share similar interests too.
One quality that we both have is loyalty. I know that I wouldn't have shunned her after a couple of years and she is of the same opinion.
We have quite an age gap as she is only slightly older than my eldest daughter but we don't feel or notice that difference.
Distance to where each of us is is minimal really a 2 and a half hour journey that's all.
Somehow I did expect this friendship to last and know it will. It's the best feeling.
