    I'm doing a primary PGCE (which is pretty much taking up all of my time!) and I've recently begun to get closer to a guy who's on my course. It's clear we like each other, and we've said we'll go for dinner together this weekend. We haven't really talked about a relationship, but it seems like it may be heading that way..
    However, I am a little apprehensive about starting a relationship during this extremely busy year; I am constanly stressed and work pretty much every evening and weekend.
    Some people have advised me against it; saying that it would be better to focus fully on the course with no distractions. However, others have told me that it'd be an advantage dating someone on the course ,who's going through the exact same thing, and that we can help each other with the workload and lesson planning and such.
    Has anyone else had a similar kind of experience? Did you manage it ok? Thanks

    Do what you want, if you like each other then why not give it a try, you can balance coursework with a relationship if you both work at it, then again more than anything enjoy the time you spend together.

    Thanks ,yeah worth a try I guess, and at least we'd both be equally busy rather than one being a lot busier than the other, for example.
