I'm currently in upper sixth, with a boyfriend at university....he's only a 45 min train journey away, so I see him mostly once a week - weekends are difficult, as his parents often want him home, but its currently working fine
Now its my turn to apply to universities, and i'm getting stressed - my dream uni, Warwick, would make me only 2h 10mins away from him, which we both agree we will be able to handle, alternating visits etc
Only problem is, the only uni i've currently got an offer from is Exeter - an expensive 4 hour journey!
I know this is only a hypothetical situation, but its taking up alot of my time thinking about it - if it ends up with Exeter, what should I do? How do people with similar distance situations cope?
We are in a very strong relationship, and trust is not an issue - but I can't see how going to a uni that i don't really want to, moving away from the person I love most, just because I think I should, is going to be worth it for me........
