I'm ample dependent on my own as is. The boyfriend just makes more then I did, so I was just throwing that tidbit out there to help describe my situation. Money isn't the big issue here. Because for me, up and moving over there would result in me first needing to find a job over there. In no way would I up and move without knowing I'd have a job waiting for me. I was just laying out that the boyfriend has a open job offer, if you will, should the decision be made to move over there.
The big issue is basically, "to move or not to move" and to help clear my head from the 'emotional' ties in order to make rational decisions.
Untimately, though it may not look like it, I am trying to think long term - in case that wasn't coming across clear :). I'm trying to figure out 'where to settle down' and plant some roots.
