Job in UK vs moving to my girlfriend's home country watch

    • Thread Starter

    I have been dating a Turkish girl for 2 years now. She goes to university in the town I live in doing her masters but now that her university course is over her student visa is due to expire so she'll have to go back to Turkey. Despite that she wants to teach English to Turkish people so she wants to go back anyway.

    I'm a Brit currently working on various work projects, I work in Television as a researcher what I studied in university and the job I have was hard to get because of the high demand so i'm not in a situation where I can change jobs/locations.

    My girlfriend wants me to move to Turkey with her, I've been there before beautiful place but my career would suffer if I were to take the move. I love my girlfriend and i want to stay with her, I know that i would never find another girl as beautiful and as caring as she is.

    I don't know what to do unless one of use gives up either of our ambitions. I don't really want a long distance relationship because I don't see the point.

    Does anyone have any suggestions? Also anyone in international relationships how do you cope with it?

    everybody has different priority in their life and it depends upon you what seems more important. Some people are carrier oriented and theywill advice you not to move in with her and oppurtunity that you have got ,you might not get such oppurtunity again and again.The people who are carrier oriented will obviously advice you to stay where you are.and on the other handside what about relationship that you have with your girlfriend since 2 damn freaking year ,wouldn't you miss her ,oh god!the memories that you guys have and bond between you guys are really strong i guess.what about the relationship that you adore most?.well all these stuff are said by people to whom love life is what they adore the most.So there are different types of people out here.Its your life .so ,you gotta choose whats more important. People out here will give you suggestion from their perspective ,experience, priority. Maybe it was really hard for you to take decisions but considering love between you guys and carrier ,which you have work so hard.Think more than once before you come up with conclusion.
