    I have a great friend named Tanya. We spent alot of time together for a few years... and then, about a year and a half ago now... she moved to California [​IMG]

    We keep in touch a bit.. but I really miss her. She was the most accepting person (aside from my mom, of course) that I've ever met. No matter how silly I was (and I'm pretty silly at times.. and do things because they amuse me rather than other people)... she was still always happy to spend time with me. Didn't matter what I wore, or said, or did.. she was always my friend.
    I haven't met many other people like her..... and I want her to move back! How do I make her move back here??

    I had a friend that was my best friend all through high school, we never spent more than a couple days apart (since she only lived maybe a mile from me) that moved to Las Vegas during our Senior year. [​IMG]
    We've lost touch, like I knew that we would, but I hate it.

    Why'd she move?

    My best friend is almost a month younger than I am. Our mothers met when they were expecting us. We grew up together and have always been best friends. I moved 500 miles west about 7 years ago, and we are both married with children now. She works as a box office manager in a theater and is on the phone all day, so when she isn't working she avoids the phone as much as she can. I miss her dearly-we only see each other about once a year for a few hours. I feel your pain. [​IMG]

    Ohh.. I did.. thats the only reason I have it... hehe!

    I know I really cant make her move back... I know she is happy there. She keeps telling me to come live in California with her.. so then I tell her to move here [​IMG] Can't we just play tug of war until we both end up in the middle? But, we both like being warm [​IMG]

    Thank you everyone [​IMG]

    She moved because she mostly grew up there.. before her family moved down here. After she was old enough to be on her own, she started saving the money to go back.. and be with the people and friends she grew up with and loved.
