    Hi,

    I just want to apologise in advance because this is going to be super long.

    Okay so to start with I'm 16, and I'm in year 12, and I really like this guy. We both go to the same sixth form, and he's 18 and in year 13.

    He recently told me that he liked me over Facebook, I think he was too shy to do it in person. We have this chemistry and he's just so so great. He's really easy to talk to, and makes me smile so much.

    Of course I'd like it to go further, but he's going to university after sixth form, and it's a good few hours away. He seems perfectly happy to involve himself in a relationship. He's not showing the same worries that I am about a long distance relationship.

    I really don't want to be the one holding him back if we were together when he goes off to university. He's a good person, so I don't think he'd cheat, but I just don't want to stop him from having experiences that everyone else around him will be having.

    I know some long distance relationships work out. But from what I've seen and heard, the vast majority don't.

    What are your thoughts?

    Thank you.

    No harm in trying. If it doesn't work out then so be it, at least you won't be spending your time wondering 'what if'.

    I guess you're right. I'd hate to have regrets. Thank you!

    Just thought I'd post an update but shortly after this post, we got together! We've been together happily since, and whilst it's been hard him leaving, we've been making it work.

    Think of it as this, is it worth the heart break? Are you really ready or just want to be with someone?
