Hi everyone...it's been a long time since I've made a post on here.
I'm finding myself in a bind I've never been before Last week I found out that my boyfriend will be moving up north within the next couple of months because all of his family is...there are better job opportunities there. We've been through a lot in the past that brought us closer, and we have a wonderful relationship. We click well together, we are deeply in love, and make each other very happy. He is my best friend, my lover, my partner in everything...he very much is a big part of me.
When he told me, all I could do was break down crying. I don't see myself being happy without him here. When he moves, it'll crush me. I'll lose a part of myself. The distance will make it hard on both of us. Just picturing my everyday life here without him tears me up. I have been in a foul mood this whole weekend, not being able to put this out of my mind.
As upset as I am, over the past couple of days I've had time to logically think about it. There are options that the two of us have.
1) He moves, I stay here and we try to work things out from there with seeing each other every couple of months, holidays, breaks, etc.
2) He finds a way to stay down here.
3) I move there with him. At 18, I'm legally allowed to. It'll be a big change, I'll leave everything here behind...but I'd do it to stay with him.
Those are the options I see. There is still a lot of time before any decision has to be finalized and set in stone...but I'm the type who likes to know all of my options before the deadline and have them thought over.
We very much want to stay together...we're willing to try our hardest to make things work. I would like some opinions from everyone here...what do you all think about this? Any other ideas, comments?
