Should I Move For a Job or Stay For Love?

"Should I Move For a Job or Stay For Love?"

This question is from a Group Therapy post in our TrèsSugar Community. Add your advice in the comments!

I officially moved in with my boyfriend at the beginning of the year. I have been unemployed since last July and have very little savings. I actually spent most of what I have traveling to be with him and living with him. I looked for jobs and had some false leads. It's been frustrating to say the least. At the end of last month, a family member passed away and I flew back home (to another country) to be there for the funeral. On a whim, my friend suggested I interview at his company. It's a prestigious firm, but with a rather limited salary. The job would certainly look good on a resume though. I got an offer tonight.

I'm torn about about to do. I want to be with my boyfriend, but the only thing I have in the city is him, and I literally can't afford to stay another month with no job prospects, never mind considering how dependent I would be on him. If I take this job, I will have enough to fly out for a week or two, and again in about 3 months. I think I should take the job, but I'm afraid I will lose my relationship. What should I do?
