    I have been accepted into uni and so has my boyfriend, but they are other ends of the country. I really care about him but I don't know if a long distance relationship would work, any advice?

    I hate to be the voice of pessimism but the most pragmatic advice I can give you is: if you haven't been together for very long or there's a shred of doubt in either one of your minds about communication, or commitment, or whether it's all likely to be worth it then you're probably best off being real about it and breaking it off

    My attitude was that I wanted my freedom, didn't have the time/energy to communicate as regularly as my ex would have liked and couldn't stand the idea of Skyping regularly and having not much really to say, and that if it was meant to be then we could/would pick things up after we both graduated (also I was her first boyfriend so I wanted her to spread her wings a little rather than just settling for the first bloke she got together with!)
