When do you think would be an OK time to bring up this subject with my boyfriend?
My boyfriend and I are both seniors in college. We have only been together for about seven months but it has been wildly happy for both of us. I have never felt this way about anybody.
We’re job hunting. He’s already had some interviews. Neither of us really has any idea where we’ll be, geographically, a year from now.
From where I stand now, I am sufficiently in love that I would be willing to make sacrifices to be near him. I can’t even fathom a job offer that would be worth breaking things off with him over, and I hate long distance relationships. I would wonder “what if?” for the rest of my life if we ended for a stupid reason like this.
I haven’t wanted to bring up the topic of future living situations, staying together after college, or trying to get jobs in the same city, mainly because I’m afraid it is too early to talk about big commitment like that and that I might just come off as a crazy, clingy girlfriend. But it needs to happen pretty soon, because we’re both going to be getting very serious about the job hunt within the next few months.
Any advice on what is appropriate here?
