Absence makes the heart grow fonder... right?

Personally I just couldn’t understand people breaking up come August and simply citing the reason as "because we’re going to uni." Okay, some people know that they don’t want to begin this new chapter with any strings attached, but what about those who are happy in their relationship and not overly keen on the idea of it ending, just because one of you is at York and the other is at Warwick? As someone who managed to keep their relationship going over the whole three years at university (and now one year later), I’ll be honest, it isn’t always an easy ride – but, as is the case with anything unknown, if you don’t try then you’ll never know... The power of Skype compels you! Whether you’re at opposite ends of the country, or just opposite ends of the county, Skype (and/or Facetime) will become a very welcome third party in your relationship. So much better than a phone call, it’ll be almost as if your other half is right there in the room with you. Well, unless you have a bit of a dodgy connection on-campus, then you just have to put up with contorted frozen-screen faces and relying on Skype’s instant messaging feature. But at least, either way, you can chat for free for hours on end. Three cheers for technology. Get happy in a Jiffy
