alright so a friend of mine has the dream of leaving germany and living and studying in canada, but is wiling to give up this dream to stay with his girlfriend.

now these two have been together for 3 years now, and they seem to really love each other, but at the age of 19, i think its a little weird to start shaping your future around your relationship.

is this only me, am i too cynical or do alot of people do this at my age?

EDIT: Ive talked to quite some people about this, and they all say Ill never be able to have a relationship of Im not willing to make sacrifices for my gf, but this is a little extreme for me...

I think it's funny that there are more hippo votes then anything else. Oh, and if she really loved him, she'd let himn go live his dream.
Quote by Teh Traineez0rz
yeah was weird cause she liked us both but she loved him and for some reason she let me know beforehand.

i just wanted her poon and she wanted me to have her poon.

so i had myself some poon.

you have NO IDEA how many of my friends want to move to canada.
#16
It seems like the noble good thing now, but if they split (which is probably likely, just based on their age), it will prove to be the biggest mistake of his life.

Not that it's not possible for him to go study in Canada in the future, though. Still, who wants to feel like they wasted years of their life?

I think the question is "What are her dreams?"

Are her dreams ones that can only be done in Germany?
Why is she so unwilling to move to Canada with him?

He can do what he wants. He's been with her for three years, and that's a long time at this age. If he goes he'll end up wondering what could have happened and regret it. He can always move to Canada in a few more years.

If you have you'll probably see the irony in your post.

Why is Germany of all places the prime location for his perception of all his dreams?

WRONG.

The only reason it exists is because drugs get people fucked up, and people love getting fucked up.

I voted hippopotamus because none of the others were fitting to what I have to say (kinda weird but eh).

Why give up the dream to go do that? Like the girlfriend won't go with him?

If not then maybe he should question how much she loves him really ://

Well... not entirely, because maybe she really wanted to stay where she was but yeah >__<

I'd feel bad if I was his girlfriend, stopping him from achieving his aspirations.

However, there's time later for that, and if he's serious about her, good luck to him, hopefully he can find a way to do what makes him happy.

I was in a vaguely similar (though entirely smaller) situation and I was very glad that I decided to do what I wanted to do and broke up. I look back now and just think 'thank **** we broke up', was totally better for both of us.

On an actual serious note, I'd have to echo what Reva said.
What is stopping the girlfriend going to Canada with him? I don't know if it's a question of love or a question of commitment, but it sounds like she's made her mind up that she's staying in Germany and it's going to be down to him.
I'd have to advise him to go to Canada, follow his education especially if it's something he's wanted all his life.
I guess in the end he has to make up his mind what is more of a priority in his life.
