    This is going to be long and complicated.

    the circumstances:
    I'm in my last year of A Levels meanwhile my 2 year boyfriend is in his first year of university.

I got unconditional for his Uni and we signed a 1 year tenancy contract for next year so we will definitely live together and he is therefore very committed to our relationship. We visit each other every school break.
    So far so good.

    The problem:

He says, after I asked, that he would never be able to date her because after

    Best way is time.
