    sooo heres the story, I met a guy on here a few weeks back. Super cool guy, easy to talk to, sweet, cute, total catch and +10 in my book. Well the thing is he lives like 5 states away from me.

    My problem is this: I have applied for a college out where he lives and I might be moving out there in the fall. I had applied for this college before I even met the guy... I really like the university and the city but I never told him that when we talked because I thought it would look like I was creeping on/stalking him icon_neutral.gif

    Do I still go to that college if i get in? or do I scrap the whole idea?

    I don't know guys, what do you think, am I being immature about the whole thing?

    Sit down and do a weighted criteria.

    Write down the 5 most important things in a school for you. Rank them in order of importance.

    Then, with each school, score them based on those top five choices.

    The school with the most points should be the school you go to. If it happens to be near him, great.

    It's your future and guys are so temporary. Take the heart out of this decision. That'll only bung it up.

    Yes.

    Go to the school that you want to go to. Chances are, you'll be in more of a "relationship" with your classwork and school for the next (x) years until you graduate, and will spend a hell of a lot more money investing in school than your relationships right now. There will be guys you like at any school / city you go to. Don't base your education on a guy, be it going to a school or not going to a school.

    Do not move anywhere for a guy that you have just met for a few weeks! Yes, I know you might have got accepted at the college there but weigh in all your other schools and options!

    Make the decision based on your need for a good education and your finances.. getting to know this guy should be a secondary consideration.
    If after review, the path you want to take goes through this college, move there..... but I'd review other options. Evaluate all... the guy shouldn't
    be a determining factor.

    Im not trying to say I would move there for this guy, my decision on colleges weighs mostly on how much money I can get in scholarships and financial aide from each one. The college closest to him just happens to be the cheapest out of all the colleges I applied to plus it has a pretty good program for what I want to study.

    then go... if what you just said is true... I don't see a problem.

    Just look at it as a bonus that the guy you happen to love is there.
    Maybe karma is treating you.
