    My dream job is to be a Geologist and in being a Geologist I would travel a lot in the area I want to go into. However if I'm travelling around a lot then how am I ever going to have a proper relationship; I don't know how things are gonna work out if I travel elsewhere. I will admit that I am not someone who can be single, I want a relationship and to get married but I also would hate to have any other boring job where I don't travel or at least leave my home town.

    Anyone been in a similar situation?

    Yes they can be homeless together.

    I struggle with juggling stuff like this but I still know that one or the other isn’t the question it’s how to build in compromise to get best of both worlds... let’s ask all the successful people in successful relationships? ...

    No she/he is questioning - it hasn’t become one or the other... she thinks there is no other option

    Do the career you want and you'll meet similar people and more than likely someone who thinks just like you.

    I assume you might currently be single and in your 20s, if so, focus on your career first and there may be a chance you meet someone along the way. Someone with similar interests and maybe a similar job. It's better to enjoy your life when you are young so that when you get older, you feel ready to settle down and have a family.
