It can still work!! Don't give up on it!!

I really want to go to Cardiff... My boyfriend and I have both had offers from there... I REALLY want him to choose it but it HAS to be his own decision, hence I'm trying not to talk to him about it as I find myself persuading him to choose it. If he doesn't choose it, I have faith that it will work.

Edit: If you and your partner want exactly the same thing in a university, what's wrong in going to the same one? I know I'm not just choosing Cardiff because he might; we both applied to (and have had offers from) Birmingham, which he may well choose. After visiting the university, I didn't like it and wouldn't choose it even if he did because I wouldn't be happy there.

I don't know about going to Uni with a g/f or b/f. My sister and her b/f went to different unis - her b/f started a year before her so in total they were apart for 4 years (well, 12 terms) but are still together and just got engaged.

On the other hand, I had a g/f last year, but this summer just gone, cause we lived at opposite ends of the country we found a long distance relationship too difficult.

I think the majority of long distance relationships don't work out, which is a shame, but like rah said, there is the temptation to pull others, and even if you don't he might, and then it'd be hard to work things out (either splitting up or staying together) if you're 100s of miles apart.

It's not nice, but unfortunately it seems to be the case.

I was in exactly the same position last year. My boyfriend and I both had offers from Lancaster and Nottingham (our other uni choices were different) but neither of us really liked Lancaster. I was set on going to Nottingham, but he couldn't choose between Nottingham or York. Although I was desperate for him to go to Notts, I wanted it to be his decision.

He decided to go to Notts too in the end, which was great We'd been together four years before we made our final decision, which helped somewhat - if we hadn't already been together so long then I don't think it would have been such an issue.

We're still both at Notts now and both happy we're at the same uni. I live a two minute walk from his flat - ideal to be living close to him but not too claustrophobically!

Not meaning to worry you, but bare in mind that even if you choose the same uni as first choice, you might not both get in

Thank you, my bf wants to go to Cardiff too so maybe you can look after him for me? I really want to go to Liverpool uni but I havn't had an offer as yet (fingers crossed) but my bf hasnt even applied there so I just dont know! If you go to Cardiff it is lovely all us welshies are v.nice. I'm sure you and your bf will work out, long distances either make you or break you i suppose....... (fingers crossed for you anyway)
