Relationship vs. Career

Many people say their career comes first.  But I just cant believe it.  I can’t be the only one who would look for work in a certain area because her man is there.  Am I?  Because I think the people we are close to have a bigger influence in our lives than most individuals are willing to admit.    What do you think?

  1. Hi, You don’t say how much time you have before you have to make a decision but frankly, if my relationship were important to me I would get a second job before I would move away. On the other hand, what is he encouraging you to do? Is he reassuring you that everything will work out? Is he telling you to follow your dreams? Is he offering to go with you? I would be interested in more information regarding his take on it. If he really doesn’t care about you he’s either going to show no interest or he’s going to encourage you to go without him. In either case I think I’d go if you really can’t make it where you are. Another possibility would be to stay closer to the area you like but in a smaller or rural area where the cost of living is not as high. Of course, the trade off would be that you’d have to drive farther to get where you want to go or to work. In the long run, only you can decide what’s best for you.

  2. I am in a similar yet very different situation. I can’t find a job here at all in PA. My boyfriend lives in CA. I want to move, but I don’t know if it will be any easier out there, especially with CA circling the drain economically. I think jobs are hard to come by everywhere, so you should live where you think you have the best shot at long-term happiness.
