    So I've been talking to this guy, we used to go to the same uni. He's a nice guy, he ticks all my boxes. We are both interested in each other and serious about things. However there's just one thing we don't agree on (yet). He wants to move abroad permanently, live and work abroad. But I've never imagined living abroad permanently so it's a lot for me to take in. I would like to work abroad for a year or a couple but I don't like the idea of living abroad permanently.. Not sure what to do. I have told him this. It's his dream to live and work abroad permanently and I don't want to stop him from doing anything. The thing is I could end up liking it there and he could end up hating it but we won't know till we are there.. That may be too late though. Everything else we are compatible with and have so many things in common, just this one factor that we dont fully agree on.. Any advice guys?

    Talk to him about it, see if you two can meet half way, like spending a year or two abroad. If not I’ll guess you’ll have to go your separate ways. You don’t wanna be in a situation where one of you is unhappy with the decision, it will effect your relationship

    We have spoken about it briefly but will discuss this in person. It's quite sad, we meet each other's expectations. It's just this one factor.. And it's a BIG factor.
