For many, relationships in campus have never really worked out. The good news is, some actually do work. Njeri Njoroge a third year student tells you what you need to know.
Q: How long have you been in a relationship?
I’ve been in a relationship for two years
Q: Tell us something about your boyfriend and how you guys do this?
My boyfriend is a very understanding person, he loves me and our relationship has grown strong over the years and we have grown to understand each other. The fact that we are in the same class makes it even better because I feel that the relationship has time to grow and connect better.
Q: How has your life changed since you started dating your boyfriend?
My life has changed so much because right now I have someone who pushes me academically. You know since we are in the same class we do assignments together, we basically do so much academic work together.
Q: As a student and the fact that you are in the same class, do you encounter some challenges in your relationship?
Yes, we do encounter some challenges because it’s normal for every relationship to have challenges. Nothing good comes easy.
Q: There are very many failed relationships out here in campus. Its never easy for people out here and most people have actually given up. What do you have to tell them?
Relationships are hard. Nothing is easy and people fail. But the most and important thing for any lasting relationship is understanding. But also let us not overlook the fact that there are people who are just not compatible. So if it gets to that point then just leave it. It’s not worth it.
