Be a better friend – Stay in touch with a Long Distance Girlfriend

Be a better friend – Stay in touch with a Long Distance Girlfriend

Long DIstance friendsSometimes it’s tough to be a better friend when girlfriends live far away.

Meet my college girlfriends Rhonda and Deana. In college we were next door in our college dorm but now they live hours away. I’m happy that we’re all still good friends and we all want to stay that way. Being long distance, makes it a bit of a challenge to be a better friend.

“Distance means so little when someone means so much”

So, here are some ways that we’ve maintained our friendships and been able to stay in touch with our girlfriends who live far away. And here are some additional ideas on how to be a better friend with long distance girlfriends:

  • Use Technology to stay in touch – Email, Twitter, Facebook are great ways to stay in touch with long distance friends. My friends Deana, Rhonda and I send an update via email every Friday to just stay in touch. From what we’re doing for the weekend to family updates, from career status and girlfriend advice, we keep our friendship strong by being aware of what’s going on in each other’s lives. Twitter and Facebook are wonderful ways to find, follow, friend and stay in touch with girlfriends. (We’ll have more blogs about how social media can help us be a better friend in the future. Please share how Facebook, Twitter and other social media tools have impacted your long distance friendships.)
  • Get on a Schedule – Like I mentioned above, my college girlfriends and I stay in touch every Friday – it’s our Friday Friends Update. One of our Girlfriendology girlfriends shared that she and her BFF talk every day on their drive into work. (I’m not advocating talking or texting on your cellphone while driving, Oprah wouldn’t approve! Perhaps you can practice safe driving/talking with hands-free cell phone tools.) Make a commitment to stay in touch with your girlfriend(s) on a regular basis – Even put it on your calendar. Like my college girlfriends, every Friday – email. Or, call each other every Sunday night. (Possibly use the same cell phone service provider so you never have to worry about long distance minutes or plan to call on weekends when your minutes are free.) If you’re not too far away from each other, plan a GNO (Girl’s Night Out) for the Final Friday of the month or a monthly game of Bunco with the girlfriends. Just make a plan and stick with it.Girlfriends from college
  • Make the effort to be a better Friend – Personally, I think that the responsibility for staying in touch often falls on the friend who chose to move away. So, if it was you – make a double effort to stay in touch. Your friend(s) may take your leaving as a sign you aren’t committed to the friendship so show them that’s not true. Call, write, visit, plan trips together. Be the kind of friend you’d love to have – long distance or not.
  • Remember her birthday and other special events – Life is hectic and remembering birthdays and anniversaries may not always ‘top of mind.’  Everyone likes to feel special. Milestones and memories are best shared with our favorite female friends. So, make a special effort to send a gift in advance to get there in time. Or arrange for someone to deliver a surprise to her office or home. Don’t let the distance buy levitra overnight shipping keep you distant. Celebrate birthdays, anniversaries and life together. (And remember milestones like new jobs, being cancer-free, quitting smoking, etc.) And, if it’s an extra-special birthday, plan extra-special ways to celebrate – like sending 40 cards on the 40 days before her 40th birthday, surprising her with a party or trip, making a special handmade gift for her special birthday or other creative ways to make her feel as special as her friendship is to you. (See some creative girlfriend gift ideas below.)
  • Plan Girlfriend Getaways to spend some quality time together – Friendships are different when you can’t sit across from each other drinking coffee or wine and just talk about your day. Yes, there is some communication lost when we’re not face-to-face. Reconnect with each other by planning an annual girlfriend get-away. Visit each other home’s or go on a vacation together. Make sure and leave time in the travel itinerary to just hang out. Take pictures, talk about old times and have great conversations. Continue to make memories together and keep the girlfriend travel tradition going for years and years.

I’m thankful Rhonda and Deana want to make the effort to stay in touch and continue our friendship until we’re too old to even remember those college days. Make an effort with your long distance friends. It’s definitely worth it. Who else knows your past, your family, your dreams like they do? Don’t lose touch – make an effort to be a better friend.

What other ideas do you have for staying in touch with long distance girlfriends?

Daylight Savings Time … What could you do with that extra hour?

Daylight Savings Time … What could you do with that extra hour?

be a better friend secret of lifeGood morning girlfriend! How’s that extra hour today?

Did you remember to ‘fall back’ today? Gotta love that ‘extra hour’ that we get each Fall for Daylight Savings Time. It’s the only day of the year that we get an extra hour to do whatever we want. Let’s all say it together: whoo hoo!

Okay girlfriends, so what do you do with that extra hour?

We have a couple ‘FRIENDly suggestions’ for that extra hour today!

1. Call your friends – We designate Sundays as ‘phone a friend’ day. Why not spend that extra hour today calling up maybe old friends you haven’t spoken to in a while? Or spend time with some new friends. It doesn’t matter which, just remember to spend time with the amazing people who love you and bless your lives with their friendship.

2. Send Cards – When was the last time, okay – aside from your birthday, that you received a card from a friend? A real, hand-written card? It’s kinda nice, isn’t it? Why not stop by Target or Hallmark and pick up some girlfriend-ly cards and send notes to your best friends. It’s pretty easy to do and means so much to them. Want to add an inspirational quote? We’ve got them! If you don’t know their address, check out Switchboard.com. Just send a card. Or send a cheer up text. A few words can say so much.

3. Go for a Walk with a Friend – I love those walk/talks where I get to exercise and catch up with a friend. It makes the miles just melt away and conversations keep me going so much that I don’t want to stop! Why not call up a friend and go for a walk? Get healthier and closer. It’s a wonderful thing – especially in Fall when it’s still nice enough to be hanging out with a girlfriend outside.

4. Facebook notes/Emails to your Friends – Facebook and email make it so easy to stay in touch. Send a note to your fave friends and tell them why they’re you’re favorite friends! Or just say ‘Hi – what’s up?’ Just stay in touch with your friends. They’re worth that, right?

5. Make a Girlfriend Gift – If you’re crafty or even if you’re not, it’s kinda fun to give something that you made to a friend. Make a card, jewelry, scarf for a friend. They’ll treasure it – forever! (Here are some ideas on girlfriend gifts to make.) Or, if you’re more into culinary crafts, what friend would love to have a surprise treat you baked for her? Go for it girlfriend!

6. Take a Class Together – My girlfriend Allison recently joined my gym. We’ve had a walk/talk date on the treadmills and taken a few classes together which MAKES us show up for class and makes it much more fun. (We totally made faces at each other during a tough weights/abs class that kicked our butts!) Call up a friend and make plans for a class or get together and workout to a DVD. It’s much more fun with a friend!

What are you doing with your extra hour today? How can you spend it with a friend?

Be a Better Friend: Supporting a Friend with Cancer

Be a Better Friend: Supporting a Friend with Cancer

allison and karen girlfriendsLife is tough … especially when you have a friend with cancer.

How can we, as girlfriends, be a better friend to a friend with cancer?

My girlfriend Karen (in the pink boa, of course!) lost her husband unexpectedly then found out she had breast cancer. She credits her sisters and girlfriends for helping her through this terrible time in her life. (She now supports cancer and heart disease research.)

It’s tough to know what to do for a friend with cancer. We’ve addressed this topic before and it unfortunately stays a trending topic. So, we are thankful for the following guest blog by Laura Mosiello, LCSW-R, is Director of Women’s Cancers for CancerCare.

How to be a better friend to a girlfriend with cancer

Be a better friend: Supporting a Friend with Cancer

When a friend is affected by cancer, it can be tough to know how to best support her. Whether it is she herself or a family member who has been diagnosed, she needs you more than ever. These are some ways you can support her, every step of the way.

Know when to talk, when to listen, and when to change the subject. Ask your friend how she’s coping, and let her know you’re available to listen if she wants to talk. Once you open up the conversation, though, let her take the lead. Don’t push her to talk if she doesn’t feel like it. She may not want or be able to discuss her feelings, but she’ll definitely appreciate your willingness to listen.

Remember, too, that sometimes people get tired of constantly talking about illness. If your friend wants to talk about lighter topics, follow her cue. Cancer, while a serious topic, doesn’t need to completely dominate the conversation.

Offer some help. With so much going on, people coping with cancer often appreciate help with practical things like household chores or running errands. Offer your help in areas that highlight your expertise, such as making follow up phone calls, researching information or organizing friends to accompany her to treatment. You may also ask your friend to tell you what she needs most during treatment.

Make her feel comfortable. Accompanying your friend to doctor’s appointments or treatment might make her feel reassured. Let her know you’re willing to do these things if she would like you to. In the event she’s hospitalized, bring her a blanket, comfy slippers, a magazine—anything that you think would make her feel more comfortable. If she’s homebound, offer your company.

Help her adjust to changes in appearance. For example, if her hair begins to fall out from treatment, she might ask you to play “personal shopper” for an afternoon and help her find a wig or oversized square scarves. If she doesn’t ask for the shopping support, though, follow her lead and stay mum.

Provide her with additional support. As much as you may want to help, you can’t be your friend’s sole source of support. There are many organizations that provide free help to people affected by cancer. For example, CancerCare provide free counseling, support groups and financial assistance nationwide. Let your friend know about resources you find that may be helpful.

Stay connected. Check in regularly throughout treatment and even once it’s over. Emotional side effects can linger long after treatment ends. Continue to call, visit and hang out, and keep doing all the things you’ve always loved to do together.

5 Low-Pressure Ways to Make New Friends

5 Low-Pressure Ways to Make New Friends

Vitamin for making friends B1The best vitamin for making friends: B1.

Author unknown

Making friends can be difficult as you get older. Between working, taking care of  your children, or just general busywork, it’s hard finding the time to meet new people and make new friends with women your own age. You don’t want to come off as pushy or too excitable about making friends, but you still want to have that camaraderie with your peers. Whether you’re extroverted or introverted, you still have the chance to get out there and make friends in a low-pressure environment.

Guest blogger ADRIENNE ERIN shares her girlfriend advice on 5 Low-Pressure Ways to Make New Friends

1.       Do Local Community Theater – If you enjoy performing or being in front of people, community theater is a great way to get to know other people in your local area. There are so many different options for you to pursue — cheery musical theater, edgy dramas, or goofy plays — and many companies are always looking to get more people involved in their shows.

You’ll get the chance to work with many different people and form friendships with them throughout the rehearsal process. Look up the community theaters in your local area. Don’t forget to bring along a monologue of your choice for your audition to meet some new people.

2.       Take a Yoga Class – If the performing arts don’t interest you but you still want to be active, yoga classes can introduce you to new people. Yoga studios already have a relaxed mood, so you’ll feel less stress when interacting with your fellow classmates.

While yoga itself is individualized, you’re still in a class with a dozen other people who have at least one similar interest with you. Strike up a conversation about yoga with one of your classmates and see how the conversation progresses.

3.       Join a Monthly Club – Monthly meetings are a nice way to socialize with other women without the stress of too much pressure. Simply attend the meeting once a month to discuss your shared interests. These events are nice because even if you have a busy schedule, you can usually set aside an hour each month for the chance to relax with your friends.

While the most common monthly meetings are book clubs, you have other options. For example, you can join a loose leaf tea of the month club if you enjoy trying new teas or a cooking club if you want to experiment with different recipes.

4.       Attend a Speed Friending Event – If you’re someone who thrives off of constant interaction, speed-friending events are the choice for you. While you may think of speed dating, the two activities are similar only in that you meet people in a short time frame. You would attend a speed friending event, usually set up like a relaxed party, where you can interact with people through fun games and casual conversation. This is a nice way to meet multiple people at once, instead of forming friendships one person at a time.

5.       Volunteer – Non-profit organizations are always looking for volunteers to help with the work. Find an organization where can i buy keppra without a prescription that you feel passionately about such as rescuing animals or saving the environment, and then sign up to help. You’ll be working with people who have the same interests as you and are striving for the same goals as you. In addition to doing some good in your community, you’ll be able to form friendships with your fellow volunteers.

Forming friendships takes time — very rarely do you instantly find a best friend. However, the biggest thing to remember when you’re making friends is to find common interests. Mutual interests can help keep things low-pressure. You’ll be able to find out more about these people once you have that connection. Your options for meeting and making friends are limitless. But you have to take the first step and put yourself out there to make it happen.

Meeting Girlfriends When Traveling Solo | Guest Blogger Sherry Ott

Meeting Girlfriends When Traveling Solo | Guest Blogger Sherry Ott

meet girlfriends traveling solo “There are no foreign lands. It is the traveler only who is foreign.” – Robert Louis Stevenson

For most of us, our lives are carefully constructed to spend time with our wonderful girlfriends with small pockets of managed time to meet new friends. A networking meeting here, a get together there, the odd chance encounter.

For guest blogger SHERRY OTT, life is very different. She is constantly on the go, constantly traveling to new places, constantly meeting fabulous women, some of whom become life-long friends. What would your life be like if you were constantly putting yourself in new situations?

I know that it seems unlikely that a girl could go to a foreign country alone and end up coming back with a new girlfriend that lasts a lifetime—but this happens to me all the time. Traveling solo can actually help you make and build new friendships because being alone attracts people. I know this because I’ve been traveling for 6 years now, solo, around the world. One would think this is lonely—but quite the contrary—I have made more new friendships than I can even keep track of at times!

I arrived in Morocco alone hoping that the taxi driver was taking me to the right address. He abruptly stopped, got out of the car ‘yelled’ something at me in Arabic, and pointed in a direction. I had been through this before, so I got out of the taxi, paid him, and walked in the direction of his finger. In a few blocks, I found my hotel where I met the rest of my travel group for touring three weeks through Morocco.

I chose to do an Intrepid small group tour because as much as I love traveling on my own, I didn’t feel like traveling alone in Morocco. These tours are small, and not necessarily glamorous, but they provide what I’m looking for—companionship. I met Janelle, the only other American in the 12-person group and was a bit startled by her chattiness. It had been a while since I had been around Americans in my travels through Asia! But it was nice to meet someone from my own culture who I could easily communicate with and have something in common with.friendship

As we were hiking through the Atlas Gorge, Janelle and I talked endlessly about work and life goals. At that point, I had been on a traveling career break for 11 months and my whole perspective of career and life had changed. One of the biggest benefits of career breaks and travel is that you have time to step away from routine and re-evaluate your life mission and goals. As Janelle talked about her teaching job in Austin—I took it all in and finally said to her—“It sounds like you don’t really like your job. Why in the world are you still doing it and trying to make it work if you are unhappy?”

The next day while camping in the Sahara Desert, Janelle came to me and said , “That’s it, I’ve been thinking and thinking about it—and I’ve decided to quit my job when I get home.”traveling solo meeting girlfriends

“What?” I exclaimed. I was startled, excited, and a bit panicked that I had just convinced someone to quit their job. It wasn’t my intention, however little did I know it would lead me to my current mission that I’m on today to help people step away from their unsatisfying careers and take traveling career breaks or sabbaticals.

Janelle did indeed quit her job when she went back to the US. I continued traveling and we both always stayed in touch as by this time I was proud to call her a friend. Then Janelle made a big move—she moved to Taiwan to teach at an International School. This way she could infuse travel and adventure into her life which is what she felt she was lacking. I was living in Vietnam at the time and would go visit her in Taiwan. It was fun to have a girlfriend so close by in Asia!

As global friendships go—we continued meeting up all over the world whenever we could. Janelle’s life completely changed once she started to allow herself to be happy and listen to her heart which was screaming at her to travel and live abroad. She gained direction and I gained a great global girlfriend. I’ve even found a way to include Janelle in my business—she’ll be speaking at my Meet Plan Go Career Break event in Minneapolis this October, telling people about how she left her unsatisfying job to explore the world and find new direction—and how they can do it too.

Who knew that a solo trip would not only help me meet an amazing new girlfriend, but also change the direction of both of our lives. Had I not gone alone, I don’t know what direction my life would have taken. But I think both Janelle and I are thankful that we both decided to go solo. Because when you go alone, you open yourself up to meeting others!

SHERRY OTT is a nomadic traveler, blogger, and photographer with one goal in mind—to make you wish you were somewhere else. She’s Co-Founder of Meet, Plan, Go!, a website and national travel event teaching you how to take your own traveling career break or sabbatical. She also spends time seeking out unique travel experiences and writes about her worldly solo adventures on Ottsworld.com.

What adventures have you had traveling with girlfriends (or meeting new friends when you travel)?
