My boyfriend and I have been together for almost a year, and have lived together for about 9 months. Our relationship has been pretty good for the most part. This past December I was graduating nursing school and was stressed about starting my new job. We had been arguing some during that month, mostly just because of stress. It continued into January quite a bit, but I never had a doubt in my mind that we wouldn't stay together. Our arguments were always petty and mostly because one of us were being stubborn. Things in February and March have been pretty good until now. My boyfriend was offered a position outside the match for residency which he told me was for a 3 year spot and he interviewed here for his internship year. Right now he is out of town on a rotation and today he called me and told me he got a "congrats" letter, so I was excited because we would for sure be here for another year. Then I ran across a letter saying congrats for all 4 years. I called him really upset and he did not know what to say. He accepted a 4 year spot and will be leaving this July, and didn't even tell me. He feels horrible now because things have been going well for us now and it was a great opportunity, so he made a rash decision to accept the position but did not know how to tell me. He was just going to act like he matched there and did not get the other internships he applied for. I am devestated. I can't believe he would do this to me! I have a contract at my job for around 2 years, so we knew we would spend some time apart, but not this long. He feels horrible that I found out, and know that it may have not been the best decision, but that he still shouldn't have lied. This breaks my heart, I feel so decieved and lied to. I feel empty that we have talked about marriage down the road when we both had money. Now I just don't know what to do. I just feel so much anger, but I love him so much. He says he does not want to break up, that is the last thing on his mind, but this opportunity was too good to pass up and he needs this time to study. I am just confused and don't know what to do....I love him, but this hurts so bad. Anyone have any advice, I am just not in the best of times right now. Thanks for listening.
