    Those of you who begun a relationship at university, what happened after you graduated?

    I'm in my penultimate year of university and in a very happy relationship but I, by nature, am a worrier. Neither of us are sure yet what kind of job we want or whether we may consider postgraduate studies. Because of this it is really difficult for either of us to even make a guess at where we may want to/need to live after university. Ideally we have both said we would like to move in together after uni but obviously have no idea how possible this will be.

    I'm a planner and a worrier so not knowing how things will pan out is hard for me! It is definitely possible that I am overthinking things and worrying too much, but I would like to hear if anyone else was in a similar position. How easy was it for you both to end up living/working/studying in the same place, if you did? And if you didn't, how did you cope with long distance and how long for?

    If all else fails, or if I am being an idiot, someone please just give me a friendly pat on the shoulder and tell me it will be okay.

    If you want to make it work then it will work. If neither of you have a firm opinion on where you want to live or work then that's even better because there is flexibility.

    I am also in my penultimate year of uni. My partner is in his final year and will graduate this summer. We are both doing vocational courses which are notorious for making people move about any in the country on short notice. But we are making it work by prioritising us living together over location. Some people may disagree with this but we honestly don't care where we live as long as we are both together.

    I think you will be just fine!
