10 Reasons You Should Break Up With Your Boyfriend Before You Go Away To College

I know what I’m about to write is going to make a lot of girls angry, but guys… I have to say this. I have to! Here goes: you should break up with your high school boyfriend before you go away to college. Seriously.

Like I said, I realize that a lot of you will probably disagree. And before you say it, yes, I also realize that there are plenty of high school sweetheart relationships that survive long-distance college years. I’m not saying that no one can do it. I’m just saying that I don’t think you should. I think that if you’re about to start your first year of college in a different school far away from your current boyfriend, you guys should skip the year or two of trying to make it work and just go straight to starting off school being single. 

I know, I know… you don’t want to break up with your boyfriend. You love him, he makes you smile, you think you can do the whole long-distance thing, you’re happy with him. I get it. I was once in your position (I made the wrong choice and regret it more than anything). But trust me on this one – you don’t want to go off to college in a committed relationship. Oh, you don’t trust me? Besides the fact that I have seen countless couples attempt to do this and have never witnessed one of them make it through, I also put together a list of reasons that it won’t work. Because, let’s be honest, it probably won’t… and this is why:

Would you stay with your BF if you were both going to different colleges? Have you done it before? How did it work out for you? Do you agree or disagree with me? Tell me in the comments.

    This is stupid. Absolutely stupid. High school is not the best years. College is not the best years. The best years are all the years of your life. I’ve heard so many times when people make the statement, “I’m young, wild and free. I can make mistakes”. That is ABSURD!!! Just because you are young doesn’t mean you have to be so careless. You are building your future! Fuck all this “live in the now” BS. College has become nothing but partying, casual sex, drinking, and drugs. Why would ANYONE promote that as a healthy and fun lifestyle? If you have a boyfriend/girlfriend and you have something good and healthy with them, KEEP THAT PERSON!! Make sacrifices to stay with them!! If it is a true committed and loving relationship (which, I’ll admit, is hard to tell if it is at early stages of the relationship), then it is perfectly fine to sacrifice. Love, kindness, compassion, selflessness, etc has all been kicked under rug and our culture has begun perpetuating the idea of selfishness and making unwise decisions.
    Who cares what the majority says? Think about what is most important to you, and PURSUE THAT THING!!! You do not want to grow up and join the millions of people who live with regret. You hear so many songs, read so many poems, see so many movies that talk of leaving a person’s true love of their life behind for something they THOUGHT they wanted, only to find out that they were completely wrong. They spend the rest of their lives regretting that they lost the love they had.
    Please… For your sake and for the sake of everyone else who has loved and foolishly lost.. make the right decision.
