It's not sad at all. Two of my friends went to Uni in September and I think they have been together around four years now. They've had their patchy moments, but at the end of the day they're alright, because they've put the effort in.

I don't think it will alienate you from your flatmates. It's not like at home where you only socialise in evenings and weekends: you are living with these people, you will see them a lot more than you realise, and everyone needs their own space. And as you say, there are lots of holidays - I think in actual fact the split between holidays and Uni time is evenly split.

My advice: see what happens. Why throw something away if it's good and you haven't given it a chance? If you try, and for whatever reason it doesn't work, at least you gave it a shot. Keep at it.

2 weekends a month?! You'll be so lucky if you can manage that. I've had a long-distance relationship with my boyfriend since I arrived at uni - this is long-distance as in he lives in France, I live in England. I see him ONCE A TERM. Twice if I'm lucky. It's worked for us for the past 18 months
You really have nothing to worry about.

yeah, as long as you put the effort in. and be careful about temptation to new people, the new and shiny always seems more attractive than the old and reliable - because you havent had a chance to see the new ones faults yet ! this should be moved to health & relationships though i think.....

Hey, I know ppl are probably sick of these threads and don't really care about other peoples relationships but I just wanted some general opinions.
I have been with my boyfriend for 2 and a half years, have been living with him for a year and a half and have been offered a place at a uni I really want to go to....but it is 250 miles away or so.

I do want to stay together, but if i'm honest I know I am more ambitious and willing to move etc to get what i want - job wise etc. is it completely impossible that it could work at uni? Honest opinions please, either way.
What's the time like at uni? I mean if i saw him two weekends a month would i be distancing myself from housemates? Surely other students will have bf's or gf's?

3 years is quite a long time, but with all the holidays etc it could work? I don't know, i am so confused, it's going to be such a big change...not waking up with my bf next to me or cooking his tea and stuff. i know i sound sad but it's just worrying me!

Sorry to ramble. Any opinions would be helpful

Well remember the terms are not that long. So it may only be 24-30 weeks of the year, the rest of the time you can be together. If you both want to make it work then it can. Its all down to you.

Is there no way you can both relocate to wherever your uni is?

As a general rule though, I would say never sacrifice your future and what you want to do for your loved one. Certainly not at an early stage in your life. If he loves you then he will accept whatever it is that you want to do.
