A FRESHER at the University of Sussex whose high-school girlfriend has just started at Newcastle University is certain they will stay together.
18-year-old Joseph Turner said he is unperturbed by the 350 miles between them and has faith their relationship of four months will be stronger than ever.
He said: “We’ve been inseparable ever since our A-level revision dates. We’re soulmates and neither of us can imagine a scenario where what we want changes. I mean, how different can university be to school?
“I’m confident that I won’t have much on for the next three years and neither will she. It’s not like we’ll be meeting loads of new, attractive people and going out getting wrecked with them where anything could happen.
“After all, it’s not like we settled, just because we’re from the same small town in Warwickshire and everyone else in our year had already coupled up. It’s true love.
“I can’t wait for the Zoom call with her tomorrow night. She’s cancelled tonight’s already. Which is actually quite convenient because there’s a massive party this blazing hot girl from the next building invited me to.”
Girlfriend Sophie Rodriguez said: “I’ve been here three nights and got off with a different lad every night. I think we talked about having an open thing?”
