    So I'm i've been in a relationship for 5 years now, I met my boyfriend during school and we've stayed together through our first years of uni. Obviously 5 years is a long time to be with somebody at such a young age, but we always really got on well and our friendship groups worked great together. But since we've been in uni we've been living practically together, after spending the past 4 years living with our parents separately an hour away from the other. I feel as though I cant imagine my life without him, but he doesnt exactly make me happy anymore and I think about life with other people sometimes. So what do I do?! We go to the same uni and have 2 more years to go, Ive felt like this on an off for a while now. It makes it worse that Im also falling for someone else.
    Help? Any advice? anyone else been in a long running relationship struggled like me?
    Sorry for the long post!

    If he doesn't make you happy you need to think about whether it is fair on either of you to still pretend that everything is ok. Best thing that i can see by your post is for you to break it off and move on. Its going to suck, its going to be hard but you can't stick together for the sake of it, its totally unfair on either of you.

Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
