Besides a list of heart-touching missing friends quotes, we have added “miss you best friend’ short quotes and more too. You may find solace in reading these quotes about missing friends and memories you’ve created together.

  1. “The hardest thing about friends moving away is not being able to talk to someone you used to talk to every single day.”

When friends move and physical distance grows, a change in lifestyle and lack of communication gets in the way. Going from hours of pouring your hearts to each other to radio silence can be difficult to deal with, further intensifying the despair that comes with missing them.

  1.  “There are people about whom we think every day.”

You might not talk to them every day, but you pray and wish good for them every day.

  1.  “There are some friends whom you don’t see or meet every day, yet you know they are there for you.”

You and your friends can be certain about each other that despite being not available each day, they will be the ones to push you through troubling times and support you. It is one of the best ‘miss you, best friend’ quotes.

  1.  “How strange is it when you can go without talking to someone for years yet get reminded of them every day!”

There are friendships and relationships which might have ended abruptly, or you don’t seem to connect well later on in life, but that does not mean you harbor any grudges towards each other. You still value the good memories that you both had created together before.

  1.  “Good friends are tantamount to the stars in the sky.”

The stars that you see in the sky are far away. However, you find a sense of comfort in watching the vast sky. This is similar to your connection to good friends. Despite the distance and lack of time, you seem to share something with them every time you end up making contact.

  1.  “We must have moved on, but the memories don’t seem to.”

A friendship might end up unanticipatedly over an argument or misunderstanding. Yet what lives on inside our minds are the memories. They never die.

  1.  “Friendships that never fade are truly blessed.”

With passing time, some friendships tend to change because the people involved in them change. However, those friendships where things remain the same after years are blessed enough to turn into an enduring bond.

  1.  “I remember, despite arguments, we have been glued to each other. I hope it stays forever.”

How deeply you think about your friendship is reflected in this quote. You can’t even seem to afford to lose a bond like this. So, you just let them know how badly you miss them if they are away or somewhere far from you.

  1.  “Look up, and you will realize that all this while you have been under the same sky.”

At times, when you end up missing your friend way too much, navigate your mind to see the brighter side. Acknowledge the fact that both of you are on the same planet and under the same sky.

  1.  *What are goodbyes for? They are usually a way to let the counterpart know that you are gonna miss them.”

Every time we say goodbye to someone, it usually conveys that we wish to see them sooner. And also, it expresses forthrightly that you are going to miss them for real.

  1.  “My mind knows that distance doesn’t matter, but who is going to convince my heart about it?”

This is a worrying thought inside our minds as we can calm our nerves, but we cannot seem to persuade our hearts that distance won’t affect every friendship.

  1.  “All I know is that our hearts are close to each other.”

In friendships that are distant, there is usually a fear of getting detached over time. However, this is not the case most of the time in the case of genuine heart-to-heart connections. While miles might separate them, their hearts resonate with one another.

  1. “My days seem incomplete when they aren’t filled with your sweet presence.”

You may feel like something is missing from your day when your best friend is not around. Their presence instantly fills you with joy and happiness and their absence is felt extremely heavy.

  1. “Perhaps I could bear not having water for a day, but not talking to you is impossible!”

Talking with and simply listening to your best friend can be equal to something as essential as having water. This speaks to the intimate and ever growing bond you both share.

  1. “The physical distance between us does not matter because my heart will always stay close to you.”

No matter the long distance between you both, the love you have for your friend will bridge the gap. True friendship is connected by the heart and not distance.

  1. “The days are unbearable without my other half, my soulmate, my person.”

Your best friend is the only one who can truly be called your other half. You both fit together like puzzle pieces and balance each other perfectly. If you were to commit a crime, you wouldn’t call your partner or spouse, you’d call your bestie – your person and partner-in-crime.

  1. “Just know you are always running through my mind.”

Whether you are busy or idle, there is not a single second of the day when they don’t cross your mind. While cooking, dancing, and studying, they occupy the majority of your thoughts. “What is bestie doing?” and “Oh my goodness, she would have a fit if she saw this.”

  1. “The vast oceans may decide the distance between us, but they can never erode the strong friendship we share.”

The vast oceans may physically separate two best friends but they do not affect their friendship. Let’s be honest, you both would cross the seven seas to be there for each other.

  1. “Missing you this much might actually drive me crazy!”

Missing your best friend can be so overwhelming that it can easily be compared to going crazy. While this may seem a little exaggerated, the strong emotions completely justify the feeling.

When you come back to your old friends, you will find that old friends keep you grounded for life. You never forget your roots because of them.

  1. “Before you I was simply alone, but without you I’m always lonely.”

The present times may not allow you to enjoy the same, joyful days again but the memories you create with friends will always surpass time and hold a strong place in your heart and mind, never ceasing to make you smile.

  1. “Everyone knows different versions of me but only you, my old friend, know my true self.”

Every individual becomes a whole new person when they meet different people but the ones who know our true selves are our childhood friends who have seen us grow. They have seen us at our best and our worst, and still stick around for more. If that’s not love and loyalty, nothing else is!

  1. “Time may have not been on our side but the sweet memories we created together will always stand the test of time.”

Everyone gradually loses a good friend who they were close to during their childhood days, but that does not mean that the beautiful memories created with them are not valuable. It is something that can live on forever in your heart.

  1. “Your name may not dominate my phone screen anymore but my heart always recalls it.”

You may not be having regular conversations with your best friend like you used to in college, but that does not mean their name does not pop up in your mind every once in a while. The call logs may not show their name anymore but they still remain in your thoughts.

  1. “Old friends are what is the true definition of unconditional love.”

Your older friends who were there for you when you had nothing are indeed the real definition of unconditional love. They became your friends when you had nothing to offer besides a small candy and still showered you with all their affection.
