So, you’ve finally done it, you’ve finished your essays, finished your exams, all that’s left to do is graduate…and finish your relationship (if you decide that after reading this article that is the best choice).
Yeah you may feel like you’ve found the love of your life while at university, and after those three/four years together you feel like it can only get better from here on out. Sadly, you just might be wrong. The reality of it is, the real world just isn’t uni. The constant dates, movie nights, and daytime hook-ups will long be a thing of the past, much like the free time you had. Things change once you graduate. New jobs will take you in different directions and you may find yourself having to choose between your job or your relationship, and we all know which is the most important.
But look on the bright side, you are young. At such a young age can you really say with any certainty that you have found ‘the one’? Out of the whole world, you have been stuck in the same place for the past few years, you haven’t seen it all and you haven’t experienced it all. For all you know, the real one for you could be on a beach in Bora Bora, or in an office in Leicester. Sure, you had a good run with your current partner, but life is for living, don’t settle for what you feel comfortable with, go out and live.
We are not saying you have to cut all ties with your ‘bae’, we are just saying that friendship might be the best route. Raise that anchor and let your ship sail. But make sure you do it before graduation…don’t want to ruin those photos.
