Relationships during placement year.. Watch

    I'm starting uni this year, my partner is on their second year. We were talking today on Facebook and they said I need to get as many friends as I can as they will be on their placement year - which immediately triggered my anxiety about being together during that time.

    All thats running through my head is how were going to stay together when they are working (which could be the other end of the country) and I will be studying at uni. Thing is TSR, what do I do in this situation? To me they were insinuating that I'll need people to hang around with as they wont be there - so does that mean everyday like they are now or permanently like a breakup?I want to ask them, to see if thats what they were implying.. Then again im afraid of the outcome - if they say yes thats what they were implying then there isnt much point carrying on this relationship as its doomed..

    Any help would be much appreciated TSR, this is really getting to me. I've been nervous ever since they sent the message.

    Are you going to the same uni as them? Have you been in a long distance relationship with them before? Do you have to live out in the second year?

    We go to different unis in the same city, not super long distance, possibly an hour/two hour train journey, I dont think so.
