The right answer is, you go for the relationship. The wrong answer is, you go for the career.
The reason is that the "career opportunity" is VERY easily replaceable, if you have ANY shred of hustle. Like that pug says, SRSLY GUISE -- if you have a decent amount of tenacity, networking sense, and/or negotiating ability, then "career opportunities" are EVERYWHERE.
Good, compatible relationship partners, though? Hell no. When you meet one of those, you grab him/her and lock that down. Those are NOT everywhere. If you let THAT go for something as easily replaceable as a "career opportunity", you are an idiot. End of.
I chose relationship when I was younger. I can honestly say that career development never really happened with her and set our lives back a good 5-8 years financially. I would never do that again and pick career first next time. Sorry, love doesn't pay the bills!
I'd choose the relationship if I'm being honest with you I mean there's nothing that says in this scenario that I don't already have a decent to good job anyway, and material happiness, money, promotions, possessions have always held really little value to me. Besides it can never feel the void or the regret left behind by such decisions and material happiness is fleeting and temporary, but a relationship, love if it turns out to be mutual can and will last your entire life just about if you get to that point.
I'd take the right relationship over a specific position, but I wouldn't move to somewhere that would put me at a disadvantage career wise. In the industry I'm working in there are a handful of prime locations throughout the country, and a few more minor locations. It's not something you can do in every city... Even if I can find work doing something in any city... I'd say there has to be compromise in any relationship that's worth anything... So long as it's within reason I'd take it into consideration...
Damn. I guess love is a one-sided priority for guys. A career and money is only worth so much. You don't get to take the money you made or your promotions with you at the end. I think I'd be sad and full of regret if I let one of the few things that make life worth living go for a paycheck and a bigger office
You won't fly as high as your potential in the career though but you will fly very high. It is knowing which to choose in any given circumstance. Sometimes the job requires more time and the relationship has to be strong enough to flex that way, and then vice-versa. It can be done and your boss is likely trying to do it too and so understands.
If the career was my passion, then my career. If I don't, then I wouldn't be the guy she fell in love to begin with. And I'd be doing my soul a disservice. I'd pick the career and move her to me if that was a possibility. I'm still young.
I could go both ways on this. On one hand, you will eventually retire from a career and will then only have the bonds you've formed. On the other until then a career is important to save for that time. Depends on if you feel your SO is worth it. If you feel the relationship is stable. If you feel like you want to make a life with your SO. There is always the option of your SO moving with you.
Stupid ass question. Always choose a career over a woman. A career means you have control over you happiness a woman cannot be trusted with your happiness and all I truly need from them is sex therefore I don't need love From girl because family and freinds provide love.
If you love someone don't hesitate jus go for it love is the answer to anything
The job because that is the way to get women crawling to u
I'd choose the job. She would probably dump me after we got intimate and saw what I was packing.
The job would allow me to pursue my hobbies.
Depends on what you seek most out of life. For me the choice is easy. I'd just flip a coin then cope with either decision. Which may sound cold hearted to some but hey that's how I feel. I value relationships immensely but I have a large close knit family who can usually fill the need for emotional consistency in my life and I've passed through enough wonderful relationships to feel satisfied enough with my love life that I don't feel the need to cling too hard to any one possibility. (If we were married or on the verge of marriage that would be different but that's more about me making a decision and living with integrity rather than following a desire) On the other hand I'm not that enamored with the working world although the experience of traveling kind of tilts the scale a little. Deep down I'm not too pushed in either direction which is why I'd use the coin.
Love never comes with a guarantee, so there's a high price pay if it doesn't work out. A career will set you up for the rest of your life, and it'll help build a solid foundation for your future , which you can rely and depend upon. Love is a gamble, a career is not, in most cases.
Considering your age , you may never have this career opportunity again. So many people have put love before their career , and regretted it at a later date. They become resentful towards their partner , as well bitter and angry.
Career opportunities doesn't come always perfectly where everything is according to what you want like money, location, the environment or better et your dream job OR it comes with a variation so opportunities doesn't happen twice.
Same goes for love, either you meet the right person at the wrong time or you meet the wrong person at the right time. Its not easy to find your perfect partner so you gotta hold onto that relationship as much as you can when you do.
(If this is your situation right now and not just curiosity) Which are you willing to sacrifice? which will you prioritize? You can have both why not, but there has to be compromise. Love gives you happiness while career provides you to sustain happiness and needs, like @farscryer0 said, since you have to work hard to have a good life.
It would depend on what options each of us would have for mobility in our respective careers. If I'm able to find a satisfactory job where he is and could afford the relocation expense at that time, then I'd happily move. If not, I wouldn't expect him to move just for me either. Moving BECAUSE of a partner is okay, but moving solely FOR them is a bad idea. There should be other reasons you have to justify moving to a new place, even if the guy/girl is the factor that tips the scale.
I don't believe that there is only one right person out there for me and if that person isn't willing to make a sacrifice for something in my career that I HAVE to do, then I'll find someone else. I rely on myself for happiness and if I don't love what I'm doing I'm not going to be happy. Another person is just a bonus.
