I'm at GCSE now, second year, going for A-levels next year. My girlfriend wants to go from A-levels into work, I want to go to uni. How do I go to a uni that isn't close to home, without upsetting her, and keeping the balance? I don't know what to do, it's difficult to talk to her about it, but if I stay close to home, I feel as though I'm definitely limiting myself heavily. I live in wales, and would like to go to Staffordshire uni. I don't know how to have the discussion with her, she has anxiety and doesn't need anymore stress, so what do I do?

you are looking too far forward.
there's no guarantees you'll still be together in a few years.
don't base your education on your girlfriend's feelings. she doesn't want to continue and you support her, she needs to support you too. suggest you both move to Staffordshire and she finds work there

You can't live your life tiptoeing around her to make sure she's feeling good all the time. Uni is more important and if she can't respect that then she's not the one for you. Long distance does and can work if you're willing to put the effort in.

You've got at least 2 more years before you go off to university - who's to say you'll even be together at that point?

If she truly loves you, she'll respect your decision and want the best for you and your education. Long distance relationships are perfectly achievable if both parties put the same amount of effort in. I wouldn't say anything about it to her yet, two years is plenty of time for one or both of you to change your minds, you may split up, it may not even be a problem. Just let it be.
