AND THE TITLE SHOULD SAY Head....
Need points of view please ladies and gents.
Have a dilemma at work. My office has been closed down, and have been told that I can transfer anywhere in the state to continue work. It's an opportunity to go wherever I want, at virtually no out of pocket costs to me.
The issue is.
I love where I am living, although renting, it suits me. I can find work anywhere in any of the offices in Sydney, so work locations are not an issue in Sydney.
This is is where it gets hard.
I am seeing a lady, have been for some time, but it's a very complicated issue. We are both committed to each other, but she won't commit for at least another 5 years. Her kid is in year 6, and she is in a rough relationship but won't leave till her kid finishes school. Her partner is a jerk. I want to stay here for her, because each time I go away with work, she is given grief and there is sfa I can do till I get back and be there for her.
The dilema is I have bought a house 4 hours away, and I have been offered a strait up transfer to an office 30 minutes away from the house. I have extend family within an hour of there, and it's a country location, a place where I want to retire too.
So. Do I move west and live in my house, enjoy the country lifestyle, drop about 15k a year in money, leave the girl behind and try the long distance relationship thing or do I stay in Sydney, earns better money, stay and pray that she leaves her jerk of a partner before the 5 years is up.
opinions please. I am a bit torn...
