In that case, take the Friday nights, or any convenient weekday evenings to spend with your friend(s). If you do not want to go out, then you might want to host an in-house. Dress up in your wackiest and weirdest, or finest as the mood of the party demands. Assume the role of humourist, crack clean jokes and go for a pot-luck menu, if desired.
#3: For Friends Living Far-Off

The problem is, this might later end up creating an impression that both of you are taking each other for granted. The thing is, nothing is wrong with asking for help from your friend, but ensure that you nurture the friendship simultaneously, as well. Call them up, or simply drop a ‘hello’ message on FaceBook message- the aim is to stay connected only.
On a little bit of effort on your side and a little investment of time from the other end can give way to lifelong relationships!
