So as the title says my best friend just moved away today to a town 10hrs away, and I dont know what the hell to do now because I can honestly say he was the best friend I ever had.
I feel like shit right now becasue just before he left he gave me some lyrics we wrote together from our band, then I started reading them and totally broke down after remembering how fun that was and how it wont happen again.
Im woundering if any of you have had your bestfriend leave, and how did you get over it?

Thanks alot

Yeah, I was normally the friend leaving.

When you get to school (if you're in school) things will be easier. otherwise just socialise a lot, it will remind you of how much you aren't close with the people but eventually you'll get close again, and you can visit him.

It seams like you'll never get over it, but you will soon enough. Just stay in touch.
Also, think YOU about moving from ALL or your friends to somewhere entirely across the planet to a foreign country you don't speak the language. (w00t I did it...Dad in the Marines) Really though, I usually don't know people for more then a year or two and after doing that so much, you get attached quicker so that its easier to find friends and it freakin sucks leaning them.

Youll get over it though.
Not as bad as it seams.
3 good friends and about 11 of the other people i hang out with including my best friend that i was lucky enough to know a little over a year just left this last summer and i am already getting over it. If you guys are good enough friends, youll see him again

Don't worry man, you'lll get over it.

When i left middle school my two main friends and i went separate ways. One of them moved out of state with his dad while the other attended a different high school. At first i felt horrible since i was in a new school as a freshman and didn't have any actual friends. About 2 weeks later i had a new group of friends who made my freshman and sohpomore years pretty good. After that my best friend started hating me for i don't know what reason and stopped talking to me. I found a new group of friends since that junior year, and to be honest it's great.

I just recently hanged out with one of my friends from middle school and to be honest i can't really stand him much. I wish i knew where Alex, the other guy, is.

Damn i still miss hanging out with him... but i'm over it. Things happen and change and u must move on.

hakunah matata man...

Whatever, just try not to think about it, at the moment all my friends are in North Carolina or Texas or L.A. and I'm in Japan...
It's cool just try and do other things, sometimes its easier just to not talk to them at all, or sometimes its better to stay in touch. You'll new friends and new things to do to keep yourself busy.

When I was in 4th grade, I moved from Michigan to Washington state. I only see those friends for a couple days every few years. It really sucks. Now, that I finally have somewhat of a social life in the school I go to, and it's my senior year, that will suck. I don't really wanna leave all my friends behind after I graduate.


but heres some good advice to the TS and anyone else. There are so many new friends out there that you may never meet, so make sure you if you ever move, to try and embrace it and think of it as just an opportunity to meet other awesome friends.
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.


I don't always post on UG, but when I do, I post in the Pit. Stay thirsty my friends.

Yeah, my best friend moved away last year on my birthday. I just didn't whine about it. I'm so used to people leaving me that it doesn't really bother me any more.

Self-pity much?

Totally.

Except for the part where I just ****ing said "it doesn't bother me."

Dude, at least your friends are really YOUR FRIENDS. My dumb friends always piss me off, because they always try to be so "hardcore". It seems like everything's a contest, who found out about this band first, or who discovered this song first, or who made this joke first, it's so ****ing stupid.

hahah, chill mate, sorry. That came out much stronger than it was meant to. It's just that saying "i'm used to it" normally lends itself to self-pity.

No offence meant.

Yeah, it's a lot easier to keep in touch these days with how widespread email and IM is. When I was growing up in the 80's we didn't have that stuff. If he/she was really that good a friend, keep in touch. My best friend lives about 18 hours drive away. I've made the trip a few times and so has he, usually once a year or so despite it being over a decade since he moved. Fairly frequently we get online and play a game or voice chat just to shoot the shit. Before voice chat prgrams were readily available it was the occasional long distance phone call just to catch up on things. A good jacket might last you 20 years, a good friend is for life. Especially now. I wish I'd kept up with some of my other friends from when I was younger but there was no easy way to keep in touch with them. Life deals up a crappy hand sometimes, you just gotta roll with it. Also, the other guitar player in my current band is one of my high school chums I hadn't seen in about 10 years so who knows.

I think you need some kind of Subway sandwich. Their foot long pizza sub usually perks me right up.

In fact, sometimes I get two.

Two feet of pizza sub, baby. I've still got five hours until they open.

Now I'm sad. Really puts things in perspective, doesn't it TS?

I love you =] I can't say I was very fond of you when we first started talking because you trolled the hell out of my threads, but after talking to you here I've grown very attached to you.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.

my best friend lives on the complete opposite side of the planet! i live in australia, and she lives in alaska!

it REALLY sucks, but with a 6 hour time difference, its not impossible to talk over msn, and such...

A couple years ago, one of my best friends moved away to Ontario. We always kept in contact through email and stuff. But I realized I had to get over him after that year. So he recently became suicidal and he sent me an email that if I don't reply, he will kill himself. (I'm pretty convinced that he was in love with me). See, this email was sent about 4 months ago and I didn't reply to his email, so now I'm convinced he's actually killed himself because he hasn't contacted me at all ever since.
I will soon perish from this lethal injection called love.
