    Actually, it was 3, which was why it offended the English students, who despite being sex-obsessed and generally quite attractive, didn't get any. However 3 in my life and 3 in the first term remains the same - the first and last being long term relationships. And no, the middle one wasn't. The other two were though
    3 is considered a lot in Oxford?

    :eek: :toofunny:

    I take it number 2 is an English student then? :p: Up and down the country, English students do tend to be on the attractive side and typically female. Economics is sadly mostly male dominated.

    I've only ever used that once, and it wasn't even intended that way *pulls innocent face* I'll let you know in a couple of weeks...
    Couple weeks? That long? I'm disappointed...

    hmmmmmm bristol?!?!?!?!!!!! for someone not going to any of the unis listed bristol sticks out like a sore thumb...tbh its not v reputable at all is it?!
    Bristol is a fine place. In my estimation, in the top league but if you had to use a finer eye - you'd say that typically, LSE and Warwick are preferred.

    In one term, yes A lot of Oxford people have none. A few have quite a lot, but many have none.

    Actually no, the middle one was a Chemist Number one was an English student, in fact every girl I've ever dated is now an language student. Quite scary!

    :p: I like this girl, it'll take as long as it'll take. She's smiley and nice. Besides, she lives quite a way away during hols. But *ohm* she's hot, and clever, funny, generally amazing (yes, I'm a little smitten).

    Pareto's Law in action.

    A Chemist? No surprise on her being a bit less attractive then...

    Well, careful now... wouldn't want you to get burnt since I imagine there are still some lingering feelings from your ex...

    "at least half the time after you were together with the ex" is surprisingly accurate and it rarely takes less...

    Yes, though I think last week I moved on a lot. I realised after what happened, I didn't want to be with her anymore. Ok, it took two months of singleness to realise this, but now I feel far more free to date other people. DId I mention new girl is *really* hot? And really *really* lovely?

    Besides, it's how I've always got over relationships - had some time for them to heal and me to deal with it and then find someone who makes me realise I'm still amazingly happy and lucky. Louise and my relationship was longer, but after 6 weeks I met Gemma and never looked back. Ok, that was a more definitive break, but now I think I'm ready to move on.

    I think there's a law of diminishing marginal rates however - half the length of the relationship may work for a 3 or 4 month relationship, or even for a one year one, but if you've been with someone for 4 years, does it take 2 to get over them? And they'll always be residual feelings - I still have feelings for Sam, and I haven't seen her for like 4 years. However I don't feel the need to be with her anymore, and similarly with Gem.

    I trust your judgement based on willingness to express on a public forum :cool:

    It's a rule of thumb (or just some rubbish people say to allow for a definitive 'you'll be fine by then, promise!' feeling)... Still, that is so something someone studying some Economics would say :rolleyes:

    And they'll always be residual feelings - I still have feelings for Sam, and I haven't seen her for like 4 years. However I don't feel the need to be with her anymore, and similarly with Gem.
    Know the feeling. Three days until five years since I last saw the first heart wrenching one. Didn't get caught out on buying an overpriced gift though (and got a half decent one at the time too)

    I am going to sound quite biased here as I studied at Bristol but in terms of employability Bristol is a tier 1 university, certainly above places like Durham, Bath and Manchester, so it is certainly reputable. It is rubbish to say that Bristol is not reputable. Were you rejected by them or something?
    Anyway, overall out of the four LSE and Oxford stand out and are great places to go if you can get in. Oxford probably has the slightly better name but LSE has excellent links to most the competitive firms. But if you can't get into these Bristol or Warick are certainly good places to go and offer you a chance at the IBs and top specialisms.
