I have been with my boyfriend for around 2 and half years now. We are both 22. We met at University. We were best friends in first year whilst he had a girlfriend and he essentially ended that relationship to be with me. We have had a year of long distance since leaving but I am now moving to London for a Graduate position. He also works in London. We won’t be living together but we will be a lot closer.
However, I’m starting to feel very pressurised in our relationship. I am very very happy with him, but he has recently told me that he would never move away from London. Now I am from Cardiff. I am super excited to move to London for what could be forever or just 2 years. But I am slightly beginning to panic because we have been together for a fair amount of time now. I don’t want to break up with him, but what if in 2 years I want to move back to Wales, or closer to home? He definitely will not follow me because of his career in London. However at the same time I might want to stay in London and I might be happy for a very long time.
But I also can’t stop thinking about the possibilities in the future and wasting his/my time. I want to be close to be parents/brothers/friends when I have children. Should I be living for the moment and should I stop worrying about the what ifs?
