Question by Wolfgirl: Any tips on how to keep dating a guy through college?
I have been dating my current boyfriend for over a year and a half, and we are both going to colleges this year, different ones. We are only an hour apart, but I am worried that we wont be able to stay near as close as we have been, and that we will just drift apart. Does anyone have any tips for how to keep this from happening?

Hey honestly this will be an eye opener for him and you. Unfortunately a lot of people change once they hit college.
Not true in all cases but you know there are a lot of pressures. Long distance can work but I think when college is added into the mix it’s even harder.

Try to communicate as much as possible. But also remember school should come first… after all that’s why you’re there. Don’t slack on your education over some drama with the dude or anyone else.
Make it a point to visit each other and spend time in each others new lives.

At the end of the day, we all know how college is. Even if you don’t want to admit to it, people do “Look” get stupid and people do cheat.
That’s why most people break off relationship ties before entering.

    The most important thing is trust. Not just you trusting him, but you trusting yourself to not do anything you’ll regret.

    I know what it’s like to go through with something like this. I understand the sacrifice you’ll have to make.

    Another thing is communication. It’s hard to love someone you barely see or talk to. But just think of it this way, the more time away from that person, the more you cherish every waking moment when you see them again.

    I believe that if you love is real, it will find a way to work out in the end.
