    I'm going single. There's no point being with someone who you are too far away from.

    Worked since October for me. I'm prepared to wait two more years before I see him more regularly than just during the holidays, he's worth it.

    I started my first year of Uni away from my boyfried.. I've just finished it, and we're still together.
    It was hard, we were both a little worried (me moreso) but we managed fine.
    Don't worry - uni's a hell of an experience, and as long as neither of you miss out on that, there's no reason you can't stay together. And if you're meant to be together, neither of you will find anybody else!

    Don't worry....you'll get loads of people telling you it won't work etc but everybody's relationship is different. I'm going to the same uni as my boyfriend and I've had so many negative responses but I'm still giving it a go. Hope it works out for you x x x

    I think it's best to be away from your bf/gf at university, to be honest. It's best for making friends and meeting new people.

    I think it's good to go away and not be tied to anyone at your uni - clean slate and all that.

    I'm glad I went to Uni single. I found the most amazing guy, and I'm happy there was nothing to keep us apart.

    If I do well in my chemistry exam then I'm going to Oxford. Simple as that. Maths and Biology i have nothing to worry about. It's all about the Chemistry. If i go to Oxford then I'm £7 train journey away from here, where i live now, and my boyfriend will still be living. That also makes both of us a couple of quid away from Reading if we wanna meet half way.
    If i don't get the grade then i'm £50 train journey away in Warwick. Neither of us drive. Not gonna happen

    I dont think you can truely know whether it will work for you until it happens. Although i thought it would work for me, it didnt! but looking back im glad now cos I dont think i would have been able to handle being in a relationship with someone who is miles away and only seeing them once or twice a month (if that!)
    See how it goes, if it works out, well done! But if it doesnt just remember at least you tried! :p:

    there's no point giving up before you've tried, if you want it that is.

    and it can be done. a lot of it is down to belief.

    Warwick is a mere 40 minutes from Oxford, if I remember correctly, and an hour from Reading. I used to visit my boyfriend at Warwick, travelling from Basingstoke, and never paid more than about £20 for my train ticket. You can get single fares from about £8 as well. You might want to check that out - if you'd said Newcastle or Edinburgh I would understand, but Oxford and Warwick aren't really that far apart. Definitely do-able. I didn't drive when he was there, and he did but didn't have his car. Seriously......that barely even counts as long distance!

    Even though me and my bf have applied to the same uni, there is the chance that only one of us will get the grades to go. I do worry about cheating and meeting someone else but if i't's meant to be then it'll all work out :-)

    People who give negative responses have had or will have bad experiences. It is what you make of it.

    Believe it will work and it will.
