Boyfriend wants me to see him perform...feeling guilty? Watch

    • Thread Starter


    I would love some real quick advice!

    My boyfriend is performing at a drama festival this coming Sunday, its for the finals in the regional section and he really wants me to go and see him. I've seen the piece that he will perform with his group before, its just had a few changes made to it, but here is my problem...

    We both study away from home, and the performance is about 40 mins from where I live, so I would have to get a train home on Sunday (1.5 hour) to then travel 40 mins to this show, then back home then back on a train to get back to school. Its not just the travel however, but I've got my AS exams, and they start in less than 3 weeks, so thats basically a whole day taken away that I should be revising...plus I cant go back to school with my boyfriend as he is going back "with the lads" and there isnt enough seats...plus I wouldnt want to interupt their "lad time"

    He's really keen on me going and just assumes that I will, and i want to! but it just seems so inconvenient at the moment with travel and exams and just timing...

    Please help!!!!

    Ask him how important it is to him that you go and explain to him (if he insists on you going) that you're going to need some time away from him for the next few days to study and make up for the lost time. He shouldn't have a problem with this, A levels are really important.

    If you are someone that procrastinates and probably wouldn't revise on that day anyway, as you will be thinking of him too much, then you may as well just go. A day isn't going to kill you in all honesty. Revise on the train if you feel like that could help a bit?
