I recently got a job offer about 2 hours away from where my boyfriend and I currently live. It's a professional job and it's what I went to school for, but the problem is, my boyfriend's job isn't very mobile, meaning it might be hard to find something in his field where I'm moving. Do I decline the job offer to stay with him or do I go?

Here's the deal, most long-distance relationships don't work. I hate to be the Debbie Downer about it, but it's true. It might be ok for a while, but sooner or later you're going to want to see each other at the drop of a pin, and when you can't, you'll get frustrated with each other and the relationship will fizzle. You're going to have to do this one alone. What is more important to you? Do you see yourself marrying this guy? Do you like change? Can you handle not being totally comfortable for a while? Take your time and try new things. If he loves you, he'll wait for you to figure it out. :)
