My boyfriend of ~5 years just got a big promotion to move across the country for a job he’s really excited about. We’ve been living together for 1.5 years. I work remotely and have a job that I love with no concerns about keeping my job if I need to move to another city. I don’t really think I’m sacrificing anything career-wise. We currently live close to his entire family and are a few states away from mine but still within driving distance. I have a lot of friends in the area we currently live from college and work and like the city that we live in. He wants me to move with him and says he’s not taking the job unless I go. The idea of long distance isn’t really on the table (yet) because already live together and are really happy. We talk about marriage and getting engaged often but it still hasn’t happened. Am I crazy for not being sure if I want to go without a ring on my finger? I don’t want to force it just because of the move or give an ultimatum but I’m just really confused! Thanks in advance!
