i need some advice. i know there have been lots of posts on relationships during a PhD but ive found myself in a bit of a dilema. My partner wont move from where we live, but ive been offered a job many many miles away which would make long distance impossible. im torn between him, but he had made it clear he will never be willing to move, and the fact that ive spend my life so far studying in the hope of getting a good job that i love. i just dont know what to do!! i would hurt me to leave him but then i feel as if i stay where we are i will have to do a different type of job with probably few prospects.
my research is very much what my sup wants me to do, many of my ideas were dismissed until he 'came up' with them some time later, also he has actually said on several occasions the research im doing if sucessful will make the rest of this career. if i ask to do something that im interested in im told 'no money' etc. however at my interview it was all ' oh yes you can pursue your interests!' hmm!
