We’re in a similar boat – I’m finishing my doctorate and am going to be completing my predoctoral internship in a city about 2 hours away from where we now live.  He’s trying to change fields within his career and has been applying for different positions, but it’s unlikely that there are any openings in Philadelphia where I’ll be moving.  Instead he’s just been interviewing for months!  There’s so much uncertainty about when, where, and if he’ll be moving, and it’s further complicated by my impending move.  i feel for you!  i would try to just build up his confidence as much as possible, because it has to be a trying time for his self esteem.  We both know that this is hanging over our heads so we don’t discuss it in depth, but instead try to make light of it and reassure each other that we can make it through okay.

i understand that anxiety. my guy is in the process of job seeking here in california from michigan so it’s been a little tough waiting to hear about interviews and what not. we had plans for him to move with me here but then i lost my job so now we’re in a state of limbo until one of us to get a job and an apartment. we can’t plan anything until then so it’s kind of frustrating to be stuck. hopefully he’ll begin to hear back soon so you two can start planning for the next year.
