5 Things That Happen When Your SO Goes to a Different College

If you and your SO have been in a long distance relationship, you are sure to be familiar with some of these things that inevitably happen.  

1. Constantly having to say “I’m taken” at parties.

You’re dancing with your friends at a party and all of the sudden someone comes up and asks you to dance. Trust me, we have all been in this situation. You give them an awkward “Sorry, I’m in a relationship,” and dance yourself on away. It gets annoying, but hey, take it as a compliment, maybe?


2. You’re always on the road.

Whether it be driving from your college to theirs, or their college to yours, it seems like you’re always in the car. But you don’t mind because in the end, it’s totally worth it. No amount of miles can separate the love you and your SO have for each other. Might as well take a few people along with you for the trip and get that gas money while you’re at it!


3. You are forever looking forward to the weekends.

There is absolutely nothing like crossing off another day on the calendar knowing you are one day closer to seeing your SO on Friday. Remember to enjoy the present though. If you find yourself only looking forward to the weekends, you may be missing out on all of the amazing things happening around you every day. Just because you aren’t with your SO doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with your closest friends.


4. Having a closet full of your SO’s college spirit wear.

You have no idea how you ended up with so many of their college T-shirts and hoodies, but you did. It might be a little strange to wear a different college’s spirit wear around campus, but who cares? A comfy tee is a comfy tee!


5. You know their campus almost as well as your own.

After constant trips to your SO’s college, you have memorized their campus pretty well. You know the layout, where all of the popular hangout spots are, and of course, where all of the good food is.


No matter how far apart, both of you are always there for each other. After all, distance has nothing on two people who are committed and trust each other completely and wholeheartedly.
