If you won’t be able to stop yourself, to me it sounds as if you still have feelings for your ex. And if you have a boyfriend this doesn’t sound like a very good situation to put yourself into emotionally.
Figure your feelings out, talk to your boyfriend, and if you go through with the program- my suggestion- stop yourself if you’re in a relationship. Things will get messy and it’s not fair to your current boyfriend, yourself or your ex.
Sorry… quick follow up on this one as a ‘seasoned’ 26 year old with 2 exes, 2 children and no degree whatsoever…
Not everything is about your relationship or your boyfriend. I’m sorry, but a study abroad opportunity is a HUGE deal. This could not only make your study improve, but improve your language skills, social skills, opens up opportunities in foreign markets for when you graduate etc etc… this has nothing to do with an ex boyfriend or a current boyfriend, this is about YOU. This is a chance for YOU to grow and PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE think of that as well. It wouldn’t be fair to NOT take this for yourself.
Sorry, I HAD to say something, because I WISH someone had said something to me when I got pregnant at 19 and stopped school, I wish someone had said to me that my ex was being a douche by not letting me have the opportunities I could have.
You misunderstood what I meant. I was talking about not letting her self get into that situation- meaning do not act on those feelings. Not don’t go on your study program. So yeah. Thanks for the input though. Sorry I was so unclear.
At first I misunderstood, then I just really wanted to say what I said as well, haha… nothing to disagree with you or to counter-comment on what you said, not at all… I completely agree with you! Just wanted to make sure he/she got this part as well. Sorry!
