    I can't help feeling quite panicky whenever my boyfriend takes quite a long time to reply to my messages. Like, I worry that he's either become uninterested in me and getting ready to dump me, or that something really bad has happened to him. Luckily it's usually neither, and that in fact he's just been very busy and having more of a life than me lol, but damn I do some worrying.
    I used to be the same even when I dated guys who lived locally to me, it's perfectly normal to worry about those you care about. Naturally over time you'll learn to relax, I find that keeping myself busy helps me. I saw on another post you saying about the price of train fares have you looked into a 16-25 railcard? I have one and I find it pretty good. My brother used to have the National Express under 25s railcard and used to do a lot of traveling with it, maybe could look into that to.

    I already have the 16-25 railcard, but train tickets between London and Edinburgh are still very expensive even with that discount applied. Thanks for your help anyway. Coach is ok for me for now, as I just spend most of the journey sleeping or reading anyway

    I'm not sure if this would help you but on O2 National Express do an offer where it's only £10 each way if you travel on Tuesdays or Wednesday (might have to double check this covers Scotland but my friend did it to get from Sheffield to Swansea!)

    Another money saving tip is looking into split ticketing... A return (with railcard) from Bristol to Sheffield is £58 but if I bought four sets of return tickets to stops along the route it brings it down to £50. Still not cheap but better than nothing

    Ah, interesting, though I'm not sure how that'd work since we both normally work Monday to Friday, but I guess I could look into it if I do ever get the chance to be away during the week
