9 Relationship Struggles You Encounter In Your Final Year
It’s your final year, you have plenty of assignments, a dissertation and a future to plan. It doesn’t sound like the perfect time to be with someone, and yet, you have accepted the challenge. Here are the everyday struggles you might face.
1. Finding time to see your bae.
Between your dissertation, your essays and your post-university applications, it becomes really hard to find time for them.
2. Staying awake when you finally meet up.
Your partner might be the most interesting person on Earth, but after all these sleepless nights spent redrafting your dissertation, the only thing you want to do is sleep.
3. Being relaxed and kind with your S.O.
With all the stress due to your assignments and future aspirations, you get easily angry and your lover has become your favourite target.
4. Having sex.
You’re never in the mood. Sex is no longer a thing.
5. Having various topics of conversation.
Now, your discussions revolve around dissertation, essays and exams. You’ve even started showing them your work and asking for feedback, which often ends in a big fight about the appropriate use of the semi-colon.
6. Simply listening to them.
Your brain is only focused on your work. So, you’ve stopped paying attention to what your partner says, hoping it is not that important.
7. Looking attractive.
You don’t have time to get ready, and now your partner only sees you with oily hair. You don’t even make an effort to dress properly.
8. Hanging out.
Instead, you spend time in each other’s room watching Netflix or debating the function of a semi-colon. You can’t even plan to go on holidays because of your deadlines or potential interviews.
9. Planning your future together.
At the end of the year, you’ll hopefully graduate. You will start a new journey and you’re not sure this path will include them, which makes you depressed and nervous.
