I started dating a guy a few months ago. Everything has been going well and I really like him, but just recently he interviewed for a job in NYC. If he gets it, he may very well decide to move there. I am sort of waiting to see if he gets an offer before talking about things, especially because we haven’t had the “relationship” conversation yet. I don’t know what to do, because I really like him but am not sure about doing the long distance thing. Plus, since we aren’t technically boyfriend-girlfriend, it’s an awkward conversation to have. What do you think?
