It’s not just about planning a weekend getaway. You may have to plan a day trip or even a quick lunch with your busy friend.
Here are some ideas for making the most of your time together:
If your friend is invited to an event, ask if you can tag along. It might seem like you’re intruding on their night out with friends, but it’s more likely that they’re happy to have another person join them. It’s also a great way to spend time with someone who has been busy lately.
Look up local events and put them on your calendar so you can suggest heading out together. This works best if the event is not too far from where you live, because driving long distances can be a hassle when you’re trying to make plans last minute.
Plan meals together — even if it’s just grabbing takeout at home or going out for breakfast on Saturday mornings. You’ll have something to look forward to eating together and talking about during the week, which will help you feel connected even though your schedules don’t align very well right now!
