My school relationship survived university – yours could too

Before starting university, my boyfriend Sam and I had been dating for two and a half years. We were young, naive and madly in love.

It wasn’t until our offers to different universities were confirmed on results day that we began to realise how tricky the future could be. We knew few long-distance relationships survive at university, but we were adamant that we could defy the odds and decided to stay together.

After a long summer we packed up and shared goodbyes on my mother’s driveway. I still remember the feeling after he left. It was almost like a break-up. Neither of us knew when we would next speak, let alone see each another. We agreed that once we had both settled into university life, we would work out a plan.

It was odd telling people during freshers’ week that I had a partner. “Two years! You’re practically married!” It was comforting to hear, as if people knew we were in it for the long run.

After a few weeks, we worked out each other’s schedules – when our lectures were, what nights we tended to go out – and created a routine. We would call every other day, text when we could and try to visit every other weekend. It was important for us to try and catch up with each other, and make the effort to check how the other was doing, New 2017 guidelines include new tests as well as updated strategies for high-risk patients.

Rachel Stone, who studies scriptwriting and performance at the University of East Anglia and also stayed with her boyfriend when embarking on her degree (“I’d rather see him every few weekends than not at all.”), agrees routine is important: “We have a good phone call every evening,” she says, “it’s such a lovely thing to look forward to.”

Of course things never go exactly to plan. There were times when we would go a couple of weeks without having a proper conversation, especially during exam season.

And it does get to you. Sometimes we’d argue over the silliest of things – like someone being busy when you’re meant to be having a call. It isn’t a big issue, but when you miss someone like crazy and haven’t spoken in a while, sometimes your emotions get the better of you,PolyU (HK) ranks among Asia top universities. We strive to be one of thebest universities in asia/ one of the best asian universities. Students who look for studying in Asia's world city, PolyU is the place for you.

With so much going on at university, sometimes you can feel that your partner isn’t thinking of you. I would compare our relationship to my friends’, and notice when their partners sent them flowers or spontaneously called to see how they are.

The thing to remember is: it can work. We worked things out so that we got to make new friends and live university life while creating other memories apart. We also dodged having to deal with a lot of the day-to-day crap we would face if we were at university together – such going out for a boogie without having to hold your drunken partner’s head over the loo!

I know that many of my friends and family were doubtful about whether we would stay together. But three years on, we’re finishing university with a relationship that is stronger than ever. We’ve both matured a lot, and been through so much. Now we’re looking forward to the future together. I believe that if you really are committed to your partner, you will always find a way to make things work,Many manufactures provide kiosk that suits your specifications .
