Say you met someone, you had chemistry and were compatible, bla bla bla and taking it to the next level seemed like the right thing to do... but you knew you were moving abroad/ far away (for uni) 6 or 7 months down the line... would you start a relationship?

If yes, do you think you would end the relationship when you left, or are LDRs something you would consider?

I have two experiences of this.

Ex - was about 7 months before I left for a year abroad. I wasn't at all keen on starting anything because I was leaving, but he convinced me it would be ok. I promptly got dumped a few months later because of the prospect of long distance!

Current Bf - we got together 3 DAYS before I left, but initially on a casual basis to see how things went. 2.5 years later we are still going strong! However, unlike the ex, I'd known him for 2 years before we got together and we were best friends. I think the fact that our friendship was so strong was partly what held us together whilst I was away.


It can work - in my experience, going for it was the best thing I ever did! It depends on the couple though I suppose (and if long distance is for an unknown length of time, I think that would make it harder).

One thing in my favour was that I hadn't had the chance to get to know my boyfriend as a boyfriend when I left, so there wasn't that side of things to miss (initially). As long as you both communicate whilst you're away, it's doable. Equally don't overdo it and miss out on some great experiences abroad.

I wouldn't. LDRs are sucky.

Actually, this is a good point. Just end it when the other person leaves :lol:

Personally I wouldn't. I can't imagine myself being in a LDR. It works for some but not me.

Only if I'd already known them before and it was something real, not just a crush.
