I’m pretty sure we’re the same person.
I think so, at least after 1L. I know a few 2L + non-law school couples (not long distance- a lot of long distance relationships broke up within the first semester of 1L).
Just some advice - do not date anywhere but OUTSIDE your law school. Please dear God - if that’s the only advice anyone ever takes from me, let that be it. DO NOT DATE INSIDE YOUR SCHOOL. Date from other schools, date a garbage man/woman, a banker, an artist, a cab driver, a dancer or even a douchebag, but do not let any of those people also be a fellow student at your school.
Be friends, be a family of choice, be study buddies or beer buddies but do not be sexy times buddies. It can get messy, you’re undoubtedly going to want to punch each other, you’ll fight, you’ll break up, you’ll sleep with someone else and it will all be stupid.
Number one rule in life - DO NOT SHIT WHERE YOU EAT. Learn it early and learn it well.
^ This is normally really solid advice, but I do know of some adorable law school couples that made it. Sexy times buddies vs. committed relationship might be the important thing. As in - yes, do not shit where you eat, but if you really really really gotta shit, fuck, you gotta.
Proud to be one of the law school (me) + non-law school (him) + long distance couples still going strong, and halfway done with law school. Yay us!
