I am currently in a three year relationship with a guy I love dearly. However, lately I have been constantly stressing over the future and how our lives will fit together long term. I am going to be graduating graduate school soon and fear that I may not find a job in the nearby area in which we live, since my study area is narrow and largly dependent on state and government funding. I would not mind moving anywhere to secure a job, but fear the boyfriend will not move for me. He has established his career/friends and family/home in our current location and is less willing to relocate. When we discuss it, he is more optimistic and says I will eventually find something within driving distance and also says we will make it through and he will help support me. I do not want to set around and settle for a job, when my dream job could be across the country. I have bills and student loans, and can't fathom settling for a job out of my education area for less pay to stay in my current town. Then again, I couldn't imagine letting go of the relationship we have. We are not engaged, so I also feel nothing is holding me back. I have worked hard for my education, and feel I deserve to have a great career. What do I do? Any advice would be awesome!View Thread
