    Just curious what situation the majority of people who are going to Uni are in? Please poll even if you're at Uni now, just think back to when you started

    I would say there's no 'normal person'. What different people do seems sensible and normal to them, but it doesn't apply to others. To me, breaking up before Uni is pretty weird, so in my mind that isn't normal. But to you, the fact that I'm staying in my relationship, and not letting Uni affect that is obviously not normal.

    Going to Uni engaged. Been engaged over a year now and not lived at home since early 2007. Can't wait to start uni, not going to let the fact I'm not in halls spoil it. Just gotta join in with freshers week activities and make an extra effort.

    Fair enough. I just dont see the point in limiting my university experience for a long distance realtionship with someonewho i won't see for most of the year and will probably grow apart from.
    University is supposed to be one of "the best times of your rlife" you might aswell enjoy it to the full.
    Plus im only 17 i have plenty of time to do the serious stuff later:p:

    Why does being in an LDR have to separate from 'in a serious relationship'? ><

    Last year I went to University in a relationship, we had previously been in a LDR so we just maintained this. I unexpectedly had to drop out of that University for various reasons and we've continued our relationship as it was pre-uni. In September I'll be going to Uni 40 minutes from my boyfriend.

    Never once did we consider breaking up. I had an amazing freshers week last year and plan to do the same this year. Of course at some points it's difficult - missing each other etc but I see my future with him and a few years of distance is nothing in the grand scheme of things. Perhaps my decisions may have been different if I was only 18 and fresh from college, but I don't know.

    Yeah, but enjoying something to the full doesn;t go hand in hand with being free to have sex with/date as many people as poss. If you're in a serious, strong relationship, that's one of the best things in the world, and also has the added bonus that you're not distracted from your studies, or constantly in emotional ups and downs because you're single and getting involved with/falling for people.

    You can never please you people can you! If i hadn't put it in i'd have had people in LDR's moaning that I had forgotten them!

    EDIT: sorry if that sounded rude, just ppl always moan in polls about relationships if it doesn't have an LDR option

    Going to uni in a relationship that I've been in for about 20 months, not planning on breaking up as moving away shouldn't mean that we have to.

    Point taken :p: Sorry.
    I see where you're coming from. I guess it just made me choose between whether I defined my relationship mainly by its long distance quality, or by its seriousness.

    But yeh, serious, long distance during uni.

    Ditto, except we're moving together.
