    My boyfriend is off to university tomorrow. It is 20 minutes from his house, so lucky we aren't going to be in a LDR. He chose this uni to be close to me as he apparently couldn't bear being away from me.
    We have been together for 2 years, and for the most part our relationship is good. I trust my boyfriend and I know he cares about me a LOT.
    However, I'm started to worry a lot about if he meets new girls at uni and if he will end up having feelings for them etc. I hate knowing that I won't be around when he's there (I'm in my last year of sixth form), and I guess I'm a little insecure.
    The reason why is because on social media he sometimes tends to like other girls pictures e.g models or pretty females who used to go to our school, and he also sometimes adds pretty girls on facebook. I know for a definite fact he doesn't talk to any of these females, and he's open about his conversations and he doesn't hide anything.
    He's a kind and friendly person, and I have no doubt that he'll make friends with both males and females.
    I just worry so much that he'll start to have feelings for another girl, especially if he'll be at uni 3 times a week and he'll lose feelings for me.
    I don't know how to deal with this situation. Please help?

    It's a trust issue. It's genuinely your problem (especially considering you said he's very open/implied he's sincere).

    You're not going to be attached to his waste your whole life. Accept that you won't be around all the time and that you need to start trusting him. At the end of the day, if he ends up falling in love with someone else etc. Then, there's nothing you can do about that and maybe you deserve someone better who truly loves you.

    It's going to be tough for you, so keep busy, and try not sound jealous or needy. He's going to have to make some interesting decisions, and so are you.

    Can you elaborate on 'interesting decisions' please?

    Well, you're each going to have to decide whether the status quo continues to be acceptable. What did you think I meant?

    Your boyfriend will meet girls wherever he goes. Just like you can't avoid being around other boys, he can't avoid being around other girls- there's billions of them on this planet
