What do you expect from anyone you call your friend or bff? Is it time to vent, a call once a month, getting together once a mth? Is ok ok to have expectations or just hope they do the things you like in a friend? my bff and I call each other all the time. I visit her all the time (she lives 30 min away) but she has visited me 3 times in the past 2 1/2 yrs. She always gives me a guilt trip when she asks me to come see her like, oh we miss you and my son is asking for you all the time, she'll even put her 3 yr old on the phone so he can say to come because he misses us. But when I told her the other day, while she was running another guilt trip on me, that I thnk she needs to start visitng me more often she got upset and ignored me for 2 wks. She's a really good friend but I don't get why she can't make the drive to my house but I do. Any way my SO said that I should expect anything from friends and I need to lower my standardsAnswer Question

It's like a relationship it takes two to make it work! I mean my BFF lives in Denver and I moved to Chicago 7 years ago. I have gone to visit 4 times and she has come to visit 1 time. But of course I can't blame her for not coming she does have 3 kids and I am expecting my 2nd. When I visited I was single and no responsibilities, now that I do it's harder to get out to see her and the kids. But once in awhile she will put my God Daughter on the phone and she tells me she misses me andwhen am I going to visit her. But your friend can make an attempt to come see you at least a little more often especially since you guys are only 30 mins away.
