This summer however is proving a more difficult trial than expected. He is unhappy with his subletter, he is working far too much and not making much money and he feels like he has no friends because he has been so wed to the restaurant that he hasn't had time for them in the past two years and now they have moved or have new friends. Meanwhile, as I believe it is clear from my posts, I am loving New York. I have wonderful friends, a job i enjoy and a city I simply can't get enough of. I would love to share this with him but instead, every time I tell him about the fun I'm having he seems more distant and more resentful. This of course leads to me not wanting to talk to him, which leads to yet more trouble.
As I've said, I don't know how to reconcile the fact that in the coming year I will graduate and will need to begin looking into my career and where that will take me. I want to be in New York, he needs to be in Boston. I suppose it's best that I'm figuring this all out now, but still, it's messing with my head and ripping out my heart. Any kind words, advice, encouragement or cold adult beverages are welcome.
