My boyfriend and I are both going to different universitys next year. We both really want to stay together but im really worried that we will never see each other due to workload and distance. Do long distance relationships at uni generally work? Or am i fooling myself

If you're both committed it can work. It will be difficult and you both need to put in a lot of effort but as long as you're both willing to try then it can definitely work.

I stayed with my boyfriend all the way through my time at university and we finally moved in together last summer when I graduated.
Long distance relationships are not easy - it's painful to be separated from someone you love and it's easy to get frustrated about it.
I think you and your boyfriend need to have a heart-to-heart about how you feel about the relationship and where you see it going. It can certainly work, but you need to go in with your eyes open.

Its not easy, you meet lots of new people at uni and have lots of things going on. The work load will make things trickier as well, but people do make it work, you just have to be willing to put the effort in.Last edited by dean01234; 17-02-2016 at 10:39.

"Generally work" - no. But that's doesn't mean there aren't exceptions and a good number do work. All you can do is try it, put the effort in and hope you stay together.
Try to regularly skype, and see each other when you can. For example, you may have a lot of work on but you could go stay with him in reading week or something and work together.Last edited by LiquidGold; 17-02-2016 at 10:41.
