    Question directed to all UK folk out there. And by internationals, I don't mean EU so much as places further away like the States, Asia or Australia that would be significantly harder to travel to if they have to move back after their studies.

    Some relationships are worth it, of course, but you don't know which until you take the plunge. Would you take the risk, considering how hard it might end up being?

    Ermm I most definitely would (I possibly might be soon).... but yeah.... aspects of it can be horrific, such as them deciding where to live if it all works out.

    Probably not. I don't want the trauma of them one day up and leaving for their home country, and worse case scenario taking the kids with them. I prefer to date British.

    If I thought we had potential, I wouldn't allow the prospect of distance prevent me from pursuing it, no - if it's meant to be, we'd work it out.

    I personally wouldn't because if I want to pursue a relationship with someone, I would want to have that security that they will be with me (in terms of location) at all times. And if I need to travel to get to that person, it shouldn't be as long as a train journey to get there - if that makes any sense.

    I wouldn't risk it. In the end, it's my time and energy being wasted on something that could happen. I don't deal with insignificants. Easy as. She would have to be pretty outstanding for me to give a damn.
