    [to mods yes i know i posted this in the LDR thread but there doesn't seem to be much activity atm]

    I broke up with my boyfriend of 15 months last monday. Things hadn't been right for a while and I felt very trapped, was in a way a relief. Though in all honesty, I couldn't stop thinking about one of my best friends. My fantastic relationship with him just highlighted everything that was wrong with my boyfriend. So yes, I know it's very soon but me and my friend are now going out And my ex turning round and calling me an effing ****, reverting back to smoking and running up credit card debts has done plenty to assure me that i made the right choice.

    But typical of me, me and my ex had picked accomodation five minutes away from each other for uni (same city, different unis), whereas my now beau starts university in Birmingham in October.

    I know Brummie/Manc isn't that bad a distance, but we would have been going out such a short time and I guess that we will both be sucked into the whole fresher thing. Not to mention neither of us drive, though I'm booking a practical test soonish. Any advice would be hugely welcome.

    Damn rebounds, i predict a break up soonish

    Anyways, only advice i can give is to get as much driving done before the test, tests are too expensive to fail these days.

    If it is anything i dont think you can help, who and when you fall for someone so the fact that you are now going out with someone not long after you broke up with your ex, isnt a detriment to you personally, it cant be helped.

    LDR's can work and are sucessful, you just have to remember that you need to be honest, have good communication and be willing to be in the position of an LDR. It takes commitment, do you think you are ready for that just so soon after your last relationship?

    It can work and has by all means worked in the past, it of course is all occording to how much you put into it, put alot in and it will work.

    and have regular times when you know you'll see / speak to each other. So it never feels like you've gone ages without speaking. Have like "thurs evenings" we chat on phone for an hour. Or... once every 2 weeks one of you visits each other. then you alternate. And anything out of that can be a bonus!

    Tbh, university is a pretty good acid test.
    If it's meant to be it'll last, if not you'll find someone else.
