    So, in a few weeks I have to leave my girlfriend to go to uni, and am clearly going to be meeting new people (i.e. girls). So, how soon is too soon to start getting off with other girls and sleeping around etc.?

    Long distance relationship? Or are you really that shallow...

    Well, to be honest, if you're thinking about it like that before you even go, why stop yourself as soon as you get there? You're clearly only asking so that you come across as decent, but actually being so... well...

    I don't mean that the only thing holding me back is the restraint of public opinion, I just want to know about other's opinions, experiences, and when they think is an 'appropriate' (urgh) time to go back into the whole relationship thing.

    Assuming you are breaking up before you head off to uni then you are free to get with girls on the first day if you want. No need for a cooling down period at 17/18 in my opinion, particularly when you are moving away.

    I mean like the whole 'cooling off' period. What do people view as 'normal'?

    Cooling off period generally depends on how long you've been together.

    Generally its said to be a month for every year that you've been together, who figured that out though I dont know.

    How many men do you know, that upon breaking away from a 12 year relationship, would leave it a whole year before they got with anyone else? :p:

    (Or women - but I would imagine they'd handle the wait better)

    I dont, which is why I said that I have no idea who thought that up as it seems a silly concept (esp with longer term relationships)

    Although 12 years and a year doesnt seem unreasonable to me.

    Never too soon, Playa. Start rounding up the cattle the second you get to the ranch.

    Honestly, what makes you think you'll get a relationship as soon as you enter the university? Admit it, you want one-night stands, therefore you shouldn't bother with a long distance relationship and break it off before you go to uni...

    Well, are everyone at uni that shallow? Doesn't seem like there is anyone my age who wants to do something more than shagging.....

    Of a shyness that is criminally vulgar
    I am the son and heir... of nothing inparticular.


    My thoughts exactly, Socialite. :awesome:
