How to maintain this long distance friendship?

    I made a really good friend at uni and she's moving away for a new job next week. We connected really well at uni and did so many things together. I'm now worried that because of the distance, the friendship will start to fall apart and we will drift away. I don't have other friends that I can gel with as much so it's going to be difficult to find other friends that I get on with as well.

    She says she will continue to talk to me, though everyone says this after uni finishes and never follows through with it.

    What things can I do to keep that friendship going like before?

    The only two things I can think of is talk to each everyday, or if not everyday as often as you both can, and arrange weekends where you're both free to travel to see each other

    I've known my best friend for 6 years now, and only seen her twice due to living several hours apart. Just continue to talk, not necessarily every single day, but make time for each other even when it gets busy. Sometimes my friend and I go a longer while without talking when it's hectic, but we make sure to frequently catch up and keep each other updated on everything.

    Well, I made great friends at uni and I have barely heard from, let alone seen them, in 5 years. People move on after uni, you have to be prepared to accept this.
