My boyfriend and I have been in a long distance relationship for 2 years. He doesn’t drive because he is registered legally blind and lives an hour away so he comes home every weekend via transit (3 hours travel by bus).
Our relationship is at an absolutely stand still and I feel there is nothing I can do. We want to move in together and start the next chapter of our life together but I can’t move because I have a job, a home, and four children who I can’t uproot from their friends and family.
My boyfriend has applied to any job opportunity he can here but he’s having no luck. I don’t want to ask him to give up his career and get a different job because I don’t want him to resent me for making him leave a job he loves for a regular job.
I don’t know how much longer I can handle the distance between us and being a single parent Monday – Friday is exhausting. Our relationship is perfect in every way except this pesky distance which has brought it to stalemate and I have no idea what to do because I have no control over the situation.
Do I tough it out and believe that when it’s meant to be it will happen, possibly burning out in the process or do I ask him to give up a career he loves so much leaving me feeling guilty? What would you do?
