Different Universities - It Can Work!

Like many of you I am in a long distance relationship as a result of going to different Universities. I just want to say that even though a lot of people will tell you it will never work and you are wasting your time, it CAN work!

Me and my boyfriend were together a year before we went to different universities, and we have been together for over a year and a half since then and things are great. It hurts at times when I miss him and I know I won't be able to see him for a few weeks, but it is 100% worth it for the time we do get to spend together. Also its a lot easier to stay in touch these days with mobile phones, instant messenger and Skype.

So don't lose heart if you are in a LDR...with a little effort and LOT of communication it can be a truly wonderful relationship, even if you are miles and miles apart. It teaches you not to take your partner for granted and to make the most of every second you have together. When you see somebody every day you can lose sight of the things you found wonderful about them in the first place.

Thats all I really wanted to say...ignore the people who say you'll never make it, and cherish your relationship.

Look after yourselves xxx
