rainbowsend answered Monday March 28 2005, 10:22 pm: Since you guys were best friends, I'm sure you shouldn't have a problem finding fun stuff to do. Don't worry too much about her "preppy" status, etc... it didn't prevent you being friends with her before, did it?
Anyways, I do understand that hanging out with long-distance friends IS different than hanging with friends you see every day at school, but it's really not that different. But for a few ideas...
-Shopping is fun.
-go to a fun coffee/bagel/ice cream/whatever place and spend 2 hours gabbing as you eat/drink.
-do the stuff you used to do in elementary school but haven't done for years (like swings at the park, sidewalk chalk, basketball, board games, disney movies, hair braiding, etc.)
-go see a movie, or rent movies to watch at home
Since you haven't talked in a while, you'll either find that you've both changed and the friendship isn't the same, OR you'll find that you've both got so much to tell each other about your lives that you'll spend the whole time talking.
I've almost always found the 2nd option to be true... I moved in 9th grade, and now I'm away at college, so I now have long-distance friends in many locations. One of my best friends, Molly, and I only see each other about once every 6 months (for the past 5 years now) and we don't talk or email often inbetween, yet when we're together, it's like nothing has changed. A couple days ago, I visited her and we spent the entire Saturday together, went out for lunch, watched movies at her house, but most of the time we just talked- about everything and anything.
Do you have other friends that your best friend was friends with before she moved? Maybe you could arrange to meet up with some of them when she visits. My friends sometimes did this for me after I moved- I'd be back for a weekend, and spend the night at Molly's, but then Molly and I would go out for coffee with 2 other friends.

karenR answered Monday March 28 2005, 10:17 pm: She would probably like to visit people she knew and go places that she misses.And of course just hanging out with you! If she was your friend before and she was rich then why do you think it would be a problem now? It won't be!
If she lives very far her parents may not let her come.If not, continue to write back and forth and keep in touch. There will be time to meet up later. Hope she can visit and have fun.:} [ karenR's advice column | Ask karenR A Question ]
twstandshout32 answered Monday March 28 2005, 9:53 pm: ok here is some ideas:
1.all night movie fest:feast on popcorn call up guys and do eachothers makeup etc.
2.make a model search commercial or runway..if she preppy she will like dressing up
3.got to the mall and try on all the clothes you cant afford
4.if u live by the beach or sumthing like that go there and get a tan
5. go to a resort like place and chill for a couple of days.
6.or just do what she loves to do and what you guys like to do together!
Sherry answered Monday March 28 2005, 9:48 pm: Actually I think Summer would be a lot better! Just because Spring Break is so short and if you hung out during the summer that would give you extra time to hang out. Ask her if her parents can let her come to visit for like 3 weeks. I know its long, but thats the point. Staying up late, hanging out at the movies mall whatever, you could have a welcome back party and invite all her old friends or something...fun stuff. Just the fact that shes there to hang out with you means something! I think its a great idea to have her visit and I bet she would think so too! [ Sherry's advice column | Ask Sherry A Question ]
