They share the same spot in the rankings, but which one is generally considered better?
speak from experience. doesn't matter where.
is it Upper West Side-esque, because people are too busy? or is it like your usual undergrad environment?
are you disappointed, say, by the galvanization of singles at bars and taken people at the library on Friday nights?
(this post ignores the obvious fact that you two would inevitably cheat on each other during this long distance relationship)
Whooooooa. If that is an obvious and inevitable fact, then you definitely don't belong together. My fiance and I were long-distance for 2 years and we really never even had a conversation about it. We took it on a day-by-day basis and if one day it had stopped working for us it would've ended. If you care that deeply about him, just let life take its course. If you end up somewhat close, great. If you don't and it doesn't work out, then oh well. Yea it's a super uncomfortable situation...but I think the best way to approach it is to let it work itself out.
He cheated on you.
