Very true, Uni & even college (depending on what courses you are doing) can be a very stressful and tiring period of your life. At the end of the day all you want to do is finish your work and vegetate.(Original post by AJExeter)
I'm assuming by your whining that either you're not a University student, or if you are that you're not doing a particularly academic subject.
Speak to any final year student doing a difficult degree subject and when the deadlines start to pile up it's not uncommon for them to be doing 14 hours work or more per day, and speaking from personal experience when you're in one of those periods all you want to do when you do finish working for the day is go home, have some food, and collapse.
At the end of the day her degree has to come before you, and if you can't see that then quite frankly you're incredibly selfish and she deserves better than you.

so 2 questions
a) how would you feel if he was the one in 3rd year/doing Masters and needing space
b) How would you react if she chose to broke up with him now during this time, because he wasn't being ambitious enough in the interim etc.?
b) Not sure what you mean by 'in the interim' - if someone wasn't ambitious in general though, then that's a legit reason to break up with them

Yup I know how she feels... give her space.

Or is it some excuse?
My GF and I have been together for 10 months now. Everything has been great. Yes we've had ups and downs like every other couple, but we always seem to settle it quickly.
Anyway, she's on her last year of 3 year maths degree, and according to her and the work I've seen when I've been around hers, it's really stressful.
She has 2 major maths coursework due in soon, one which she has just finished, and then she has a long maths exercise to do too.
She told me things would get really stressful and that we wouldn't be able to see each other as much. That we shouldn't 'promise' each other times we could meet (?)
Of course we've spoken on the phone a couple of times and by text, so she hasn't gone completely AWOL, but even her closest friends tell me this is how she acts when she's busy/stressed.
Should I just take her word for it?
why do you have any reason to not believe her?

Uh Maths degrees are really hard. Like 80% of your marks come from your third year.Of course she's going to be ridiculously busy.
I was well above first in first year...

Yes. You decide what's right and wrong, what's logical and illogical, who makes sense, and who doesn't, what's fair and unfair, you have sound judgment, you're objective. It makes sense in your reality and your perspective, and that's what matters above all.

My friend, the solution is, as it always was, the D. Yes, yes, it may sound a bit off, but trust me- this is the only way.
