If you were offered the job of your dreams... that is in a city you hate...which is also a few states away from the person that is the love of your life... What would you do? take the job or love. He can't move because of kids. Yet nothing ties me down where I'm at. This is also a long distance relationship to begain with so it's one or the other. Opinions needed!!!

Will the job put you in a position to get a similar job somewhere that you would like to live? If so, maybe you can tolerate the city for the time..

In a city that you hate???
That is a tough one. I hate Houston, Atlanta and Memphis.
Do a pro/con thing and see.

Long distance relationships frequently seem like "the love of your life" because they are not based in the real world. So, I'd make sure that the relationship withstands daily life, especially with kids involved, before I would label the relationship so strongly. I'm not doubting your love and devotion; just suggesting that it needs real world exposure to be validated. I think the question is between a job you want vs. a city you hate. I moved to a city I hated. No job is worth that. Unless your job is your TOTAL PASSION, it's just a means to provide a LIFE. Do you want a life in a town you hate without the man you love?

The city is Chicago and it's child protective services. I started the program a few year ago for the company and moved back home because I hated the city. Now they want me back. They are tailoring everything to me and the way I run things. I will have more outlets and more funds to be able to reach and help more kids.

Look at it like this: if you don't take the job and the relationship still doesn't work out, what would you regret more? That you lost the relationship or that you gave up the job for said relationship?

And if the Chicago doesn't work out then what? He's gone and I'm never gonna get him back.

The fact you are even seriously considering the move, shows me he is NOT "the love of your life".. you're fooling yourself and deceiving him. IMO

Take the job. If you loves you enough and it was meant to be he will follow. It sounds like you have your heart in the right place. Those kids need you far more right now it seems. God is leading the way. You may never have this chance again. When you look into those little eyes in Chicago you will know its the right thing.

There is no such thing as a "dream job"...Recruiters and headhunters will tell you exactly what you want to hear, to fill a spot. My guess is they told you exactly that.

We'll it's only a three hour move for me and he is there in tx. So either way I have to make the move.

This is what I was meant for I think. It will be for older girls like a children's home. Its a program I wanted when I was in Chicago the first time. A full support program with life classes and programs and graduate programs. To set them on their feet to teach them the world and how they can live in it. Foster homes arent the answer they don't get help there.

Take the job. If it doesn't work out, you will always know you tried. As far as your relationship with the man in Texas is concerned, give it time. If it's meant to be, the problems with miles between you will work out.
