6 Signs Your Friendship Will Last Forever

Not all friendships last forever, but you know the ones that will.

6 Signs Your Friendship Will Last Forever
Kelsey Nesbitt

Not every friendship is meant to last forever. Some of them only last as long as you need them too. It can be hard to tell whether or not your friendship will be one that lasts a lifetime but it doesn't have to be, all you need to do is look at the signs. Here are some I've noticed in my forever friendships:

1. When you're together, silence isn't awkward.

Spending time with each other doesn't have to be anything spectacular. It doesn't have to be a night out at the club or a bar. A simple movie and wine night is all you need. Maybe even just going to the library for six hours. No matter what it is it doesn't have to require both of you trying to entertain the other, just having each other is all you need.

2. You've passed the test of time.

There's an old saying that claims if you've been friends with a person for over 10 years then your friendship will last a lifetime. This statement could be true considering over a 10 year span a person changes quite a bit and if you and your friend are still together that is a great sign; it means you are able to change together.

3. You reach milestones together.

Important moments in your life shared with a friend, those are the ones kept close to your heart and the most memorable. When you reach a milestone together you share something that means a lot to you. You work toward the goal together, side by side, and accomplish it with each other right there by one another's side.

4. You travel together.

When you travel with someone you learn so many things you didn't know about that person. You learn their limits and patience. It's a bonding experience like no other. It's an experience that changes you and your relationship. You've experienced new adventures together. It's something only the two of you would understand, and that is so special.

5. Going weeks without talking isn't a big deal.

As you get older people move and distance interrupts relationships. The best friendships are the ones where the distance doesn't ruin the relationship. If you can go weeks without speaking to your friend and then pick up exactly where you left off from the last time you spoke like there was never any time between is extraordinary.

6. Change doesn't affect your relationship.

Change happens, you can't do anything about it, you can't stop it, you can only keep moving forward with the change. A friendship that will last forever won't let change break them up. A forever friendship is where you change but you don't let those changes change how you feel about each other.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
