Time to move on

By Anonymous - 20/12/2022 15:00

Today, my boyfriend of 4 years, whom I just signed a year lease, broke up with me, exactly a week after my best friend's funeral in my last year of college. I can't afford to live in our apartment alone. I'm going to have to drop out and move in with my sister states away. FML

I understand that this breakup is overwhelming to you. For your own sake don’t drop out of college just because of this. Either find a roommate or move into a college dorm for your last year of school… Unless you have been wasting your time and money on a college degree that won’t pay back in your future career, it’s a very foolish move to drop out of college over a boyfriend breakup. Relationships come and go, but you are going to be working for a living most of the rest of your life and a college degree can be a great investment that pays you back many times - But only if you finish the degree.

Well that sucks, but there sure is a way to find another person to share the flat with.

With all of the money you're saving on college costs, you can pay for your half of your ex-boyfriend's apartment and pay rent to your sister. Looks like everybody wins!

Not likely. Even the best degrees don’t pay off with all the damn rate hikes. I didn’t go to a college, and I’m glad I made that choice. A friend in my field did. I’m paid more than him, and I don’t have student debts to pay as well. I’m also a lot more financially stable due to that decision compared to him. College is now a joke and a losers proposition. Nowhere does it pay back the value of what it steals. That said, making connections in a business line will pay off more. Learn it on your own and in the meantime make connections. It’ll pay off better

If you have to, find a few friends in the dorms and alternate couch-crashing while you figure things out (a storage unit near a college is a lot cheaper than the apartment). Contact your college housing - they are equipped to help you figure this out. Whatever you do, DON’T drop out in the home stretch!
