    So I have been with my boyfriend for 2 and half years now and the biggest struggle for me at the moment is the topic of going to university.

    We are both very driven individuals and work hard at school because we want to succeed, so there is no doubt that we both will be going to university this september, most likely different ones. However, the thing that is really upsetting me is that he thinks when we start uni we should separate.

    Despite this, he has also said that he imagines us getting married one day, having kids and growing old together (sorry for the cringe) which just confuses me even more.

    I know we really do love each other because we truly are best friends even despite our romantic relationship, I just cant get my head around the fact that he if he loves me so much why he doesn't even seem open to the idea of trying to make it work.

    Any advice would be much appreciated

    You're right, it is contradictory. He has given up before it's even begun, maybe because of things he's heard or read about. But if he really doesn't want to try then I don't think that there is much that you can do.
