HelloPenguin Posted September 23, 2019 Share Posted September 23, 2019 Currently in a good relationship, but to get to where I am right now, I have to mention a little about my ex. I met him two years ago while working for the summer out of province (from Canada). We both lived from different provinces, but decided to try and make things work long distance. Although, I felt very pressured by other people to be in love with him, which tainted it for me. He and I kept great contact and face timed often, until he broke it off 10 months into the relationship to focus on his university and career, as he was moving to another city. Two weeks later I go to the same summer job and I meet my current boyfriend. He has a history of not being able to find the right girl and thus struggled with long term relationships. He has cheated and had many flings in the past, but he’s made this very vocal with me and hides no secrets, I trust him. I had not very good reasons as well, as I considered him a rebound from my previous relationship. However, we’ve learned that we’re very similar people and fell in love quickly. I’ve never felt so connected and comfortable with someone. We are now about a month into this relationship, long distance, and it’s been rocky. He started this labour intensive job that eats all his time, whether he’s working or sleeping due to it being so demanding. To top it off, he’s not a very good texter and I initiate most of the conversations. We’re lucky if we FaceTime atleast twice a week. I can’t help but compare to my last long distance relationship. Now, to my dilemma. In a few months I’m going to be moving to attend university. Ive always wanted to be a marine biologist and get a degree in that. My heart tells me to move to his city and settle for general biology, but he lives no where near even a single body of water. He tells me that he wants me to put my career first, as he would, but whenever I think of going somewhere like Australia, where I can live my childhood dream, it pains me. Living with him would only be temporary (four years max) and even though we’d still be busy with our lives, I can go see him and we could support each other and move when we’ve got our education. My city is not far from his city and it wouldn’t be much different, I just wouldn’t be able to do the things I enjoy as easy like diving. I have a few months to decide what I want to do and so I want to know if it’s worth the shot? If I did move somewhere different, would we still be able to continue things? Is it worth it? I know it’s a fresh relationship, but when you connect with someone, you just know. Let me know your honest opinion! Sorry for the butt load of information Link to comment
