Off To University...
Posted Sun Jul 19, 2009 08:56 PM
Me and my girlfriend are both off to seperate universities in september, They are only an hour away but im not sure if it would work still being together because of the distance and not being able to see each other as often, At the moment we only live 10 mins away from eachother, Does anyone have any views or thoughts on what I/We should do? Thanks Ash.

An hour is not a bad distance at all, but if you're doubting that you will be able to stay together I think you should talk ahead of time, before you go to school that way you don't end up having a nasty break up over the phone or something like that.

An hour is very close. I was living in a city where I had to travel 75 minutes to work every day then another 75 back and then anywhere from 30 to 90 minutes to meet people and back.
If you love her you can spend an couple of hours to travel to see her, even if it is only for an hour.
I guess she can do teh same, of course, it is notfair that you take all teh burden.

My last boyfriend and I were at different Universitys about three hours apart. It worked for a while but then I took time out uni cos I got offered a full time job. From then on we had pretty much completely seperate lives since I was working 9-5 Monday to Friday and he had to work weekends (we'd always seen each other either Saturday and/or Sunday before that.

I'm going to be in much the same situation, except the distance will be a bit more... say 1 and a half hours. We've already talked about it and decided that we're gonna stay together. We've made plans to get phones with free calls to each other so we can talk all the time (if you're in the UK and interested, look at O2's sim only plans), and we're working on various other stuff to stay in touch.
But we both know it will be difficult. I know from a previous relationship where she was a couple of years older than me (she also went a lot further but that's a different story), and my girl misses me quite a lot when we're apart.
What's also helped put us in the mindset for it is setting ourselves a goal: we're going to move in together after we've finished University. Maybe you could try that.
I hope your relationship goes well, and that you see it through with each other.

First time I've ever "flamed" online but...
Don't listen to this guy, he's an idiot.
