    It depends on the person. My husband and I got married a couple of weeks before I left & since he is in the Air Force he couldn't come and live here with me. I have seen relationships last here and fall apart.

    Crispy said it right. Mr O'Nut and I do it, but it is very difficult. I have friends that constantly ask me "how do you do it? you're crazy!"

    I would advise you to do this.

    Stop "looking" if you find the right person, stop thinking about "I have to do xyz or 123 happens in ABC months" just go with it. Be frank and honest about what your priorities are in life. You may be pleasantly suprised. Your relationship might work. Your relationship might not work.

    But don't be one of those people who use SGU as an excuse to break up-if you aren't right for eachother then just say you aren't right for eachother.

    If you think you might cheat, then don't start a relationship.

    Don't be one of those home wrecker types.

    Long distance

    My fiancée and I have been doing the long-distance thing and it has gone alright. But, we knew each other for 3 years before we started dating and then dated for 2 more years before I started med school. What has helped us get through is that we both are looking at this in the context of a lifetime together. I'm not saying it's necessary to do so, but you will meet plenty of people here, so consider whether you want to pursue a long-term relationship with your current friend. I'd be careful about starting to date someone new when you're going to be very busy for the next 4 years of your life in a distant country. That said, I can't predict the outcome of your personal situation. There is no clear-cut yes or no answer to your question, as far as I'm concerned. All the best!

    I'd say get married and get your wife to Grenada. You don't need to worry bout cooking and cleaning and paying bills, and can direct all your effort towards studying. Then there's the emotional support...

    I started a relationship 4 months before coming to the island and we're still together and it hasn't affected my studies. I can't say the same will happen for you, but of course it depends how strong your relationship is and how well you manage your time down here.

    wow, that's great! to have a long distance after 4 months of dating. when i leave in august it will be 2 and a half years that i have been in a relationship. we have a few months to prepare ourselves for this big change. it helps us to focus on starting our life together when i come home and not so much missing each other (which is hard for me do do but i will try). we're both scared to miss eachother but think of people like those at SGU who are either married, have children or all those people in the military who don't see their loved ones for much longer. If they can do it we can do it! Plus we have phone, email, webcam and visiting once a term. we can really take this time to focus on our own goals and ambitions. it will help us each get our own lives together before we can share them with eachother. thanks everyone for sharing your thoughts it really helps me to know other people will be in similar situations. Good Luck to everyone - follow your hearts.

    YouTube - Glenn Mederios - nothing gonna change my love for you
    Lol.

    Good luck guys.. Long distance isnt bad.. Just look at it as "support" minus the "fightings." But if you do fight long distnace and one of you hangs up the phone or something like that, ur whole day is off.. Its hard to resolve disputes over aima or msn, as opposed to face to face.
