OMG: I'm a first year student with a boyfriend from home also attending Waterloo. Browsing through tips for first year a lot of them list being single going into University, will it really be that difficult being in a relationship?

  1. Not really. Those tips are talking about high school sweethearts who are at long distance. If you're comfortable now, you should be comfortable later.

  2. If you have to ask this question, then yes.

  3. It will probably make any preexisting issues a lot more evident as you guys mature etc. But if you're relationship is great I can't see why it would be difficult!

  4. I have friends with boyfriends back home. Both my friends and their boyfriends are students, thus they understand if the other is buried under work. They make time to see and talk to each other so it was never a big issue

  5. At least from my experience, It was never an issue of finding time for each other, but about finding others you're attracted to that make you question your relationship.
    So my advice is that you have to be sure your relationship is strong enough to defend against potential "intruders"

  6. I've seen a lot last throughout uni, esp since you guys both will be attending waterloo you should be fine. Just make sure both of you balance your time.

  7. Choose a boyfriend so that you can marry in the future. You have to experience different boys. Don't be afraid to update your boyfriend if needed. LOL

  8. I came to Waterloo single, but started dating a guy at the beginning of 1B. I liked being singe when I got here, because it made me go out of my comfort zone to meet new people and make some pretty awesome friendships. The only reason I find it difficult to have a bf while on school is because we both get really busy with work, and it's hard to find time to *really* spend time together. And there have been times where I've half-assed my studying so that I could spend more time with him, which didn't work out to well. I think you'll be able to manage your relationship and school just fine if you both understand that you need to focus on school as well, and make sure you don't spend all your time with him... join a club, meet other people. And don't compromise your academic needs for him. Also, welcome to UW and I wish you all the best!

  10. You're starting university? Time to be an adult. Do whatever the fuck you want. but be prepared to live the consequences. That's how it works.

    Coming on here to ask these other morons their opinion on something like this is insane.
