    Don'tchoose/prefer that city or university just because your boyfriend is going there. Forget your boyfriend when it comes to choosing a uni; your career should be prioritised.

    No. Go to the university you want, irrespective of where your boyfriend goes.

    If your relationship is strong, being apart shouldn't matter.
    If it is so weak that being apart will break it, then prioritising your own future ahead of it is certainly the best idea.

    You're young, you don't really know what you want from life, yet. University is a time where you change quite a lot. Don't shackle yourself somewhere you may not want to be, just because your boyfriend of now is there. That could change very quickly.

    If the uni and the city is the place that you really want to be then I would go for it. If your boyfriend goes there as well, great. If he ends up somewhere else, that's fine too. If you're meant to be you'll work through the relationship if it ends up being long distance. Similarly, if it's not meant to be and you split while at the same uni, that's fine too. Universities are big places, you'll be surprised at how little you see him around. But only apply to the uni if that's where YOU really want to go and can see yourself being successful. That's the most important thing. Don't choose a uni for someone else, you have to choose it for you.

    When you two are clubbing you have to constantly remind yourself to be wary of your actions.

    Bad idea. You pick a place for education because it is the right place for you r studies, not because you're following your partner.
