If I never have any kind of romantic affiliation with anyone again, then I should think it would be a good thing.

Not necessarily. I really can not say that my experience was either bad or good. It was painful but perhaps necessary. You will make your own decision in your own time.

Or maybe it will be made for me. There is no telling with this girl.

Who knows, she could have just pretended she was going on a trip to get away from me.

She will set it all up but you will have a choice about whether you will do it or not.

I will have maybe 10 or fewer opportunities (that's the number of weekends I think I might have left to go to her house).

10 weeks, why is that?

My exam season starts mid-May, and I probably also can't go every weekend as I might have other commitments. After that she is going on a long holiday to Cyprus for the whole break, before we both head off to uni. I am going to UCL, she is going to Warwick, and at that point, it is highly unlikely we will ever see each other again. So, I must make the most of the next 10 weekends.

That is not so. You can still see her even though you do not go to the same university.

she is going on a long holiday to Cyprus for the whole break,

I would be more worried about that. We are beginning to see why he is in Cyprus because she is going to be there too.

I doubt I will have time to go visit her on the weekend, Warwick is 3 hours away on the train. And she is not a 'good friend', so maybe neither of us would want to make the effort...

Yep, she keeps saying that she loves him and that she should be with him, even though she wants to break it off with him. I wouldn't be surprised if they're still together.

Of course they are together. You knew that in the beginning. Why is she going to Cyprus other than to see him?

Well, they are from Cyprus...

Then she might be persuaded to stay there.

When she is there you are the guy that is thousands of miles away. How long is this break that you say she is going there for.

Well, the summer holidays are about 2 months in length but I don't know if she is going for the whole time because she needs to set aside some time before uni to sort out her accommodation.

Although, for the past week I have already been the guy a thousand miles away, I am sure that her and her BF have already spent a good portion of that time cuddling and being physically intimate and that will continue to happen when she goes in the summer holidays, which I have little doubt in.

I agree. It is poor form on her part.

Yes, to mislead you with the comments that she should break up with him when she has no intention of doing that. Also to claim she is not attracted to men is yet another lie.

There is nothing I can do, anyway. If I get the short end of the stick I cannot ask for more, I must accept.

That is up to you. I just suggest that no matter what you do you should not fall for her or believe her.

But I will most probably fail, being inexperienced.

You are also inexperienced about jumping into the sea when it is full of sharks. If you are smart you can profit from other people's experiences as if they were your own. When someone tells you the fire is hot you do not have to put your hand in to see if he is right.

I am learning from your experiences, but I still need to find out more about her first before I can take further action.

I have not heard anything from her yet... she is in Barcelona right now, probably.
