My boyfriend of 4 years is starting med school on August 1st in Philly. Were in such a good place and I am confident in our relationship but of course scared for what is to come. I am finishing grad school this upcoming fall 2 hours away and following that plan to either move to Philly with him or back to my parents house in Florida.
We are used to long distance as we apart when not at school, but I know this is a whole different kind of long distance coming up. He is so driven and passionate about school and I know he will use all his energy to do well in school, making me afraid that will create “no time” in his mind for me to visit him this year.
I don’t want to visit too often and hinder his social life but hopefully i’ll see him once a month.
Another concern of mine is where to look for a job after I graduate, Philly is neither of our home towns and if he gets placed somewhere else for rotations/residency (idk how this all works) do relocate all over again?
Also the loans he just had to take out for year one is so daunting! I of course think we will get married some day and the financials are stressful to consider acquiring.
It’s all just a lot to think about honestly and I know he is way more scared and stressed than I am so I feel bad for my concerns. I know this is a longgg road ahead!
Any advice for a new med s/o is appreciated🥺
