When did you meet your bestfriend

I met my best friend when i was 15 years old. I started talking to this girl on Youtube, completely by accident. For the first week of talking to her, i didn't even know her name! For nine months we chatted on youtube, getting closer and closer to the point where i already regarded her as my best friend, even though we had never met in person. After those nine months, we finally decided to talk on msn on video chat. Actually SEEING her and TALKING to her naturally was the best feeling in the world. You would think it would be awkward, talking to someone who you've only been typing to online for nine months, but it wasn't awkward at all! The very first time we chatted for 6 hours because it was just so amazing to talk and see each other :) Five months later, i sent her our first ever text message and we called each other on the phone for the first time. A month later, in August 2010, we met each other in real life for the first time. Seeing her when she arrived at the airport (i forgot to mention, we live in different countries) was the most amazing experience of my life to date. She came around the corner, saw me, stared at me, this massive smile came on her face and then she ran straight at me and hugged me so hard i felt like i couldn't breathe! If i'm ever sad, i just need to remember that feeling. Now i'm 18. We've met five times in real life in the year and a half that we've actually started meeting up. We text nearly every day and call as often as we can. She is my best friend and she is the best thing that's ever happened to me. I'm so blessed to have her in my life - she's always there for me when i need her, despite the distance between us.

And don't worry if you haven't met your best friend by the age of 20 and third year of college. Everyone is different. Some people are lucky enough to meet their best friends at the beginning of their lives. Others have to wait a while before they find that person who will be by their side no matter what. I don't have many friends at school and i'm not popular and it was hard for me before i met my best friend. Just because you haven't met your best friend by a certain age doesn't mean that you never will. One day you will. And you'll wonder how you ever managed without that person :)
