Heather is going to talk to the HR person about it in detail next week to figure out timing and whether they’d help with relocation costs, so we should have more information on that soon.. When they relocated her, she had to sign a contract guaranteeing she’d be there for a full year and if she left she’d have to pay back the money they spent on it (like 10k…but she was moving a house.). David is very interested and invested in making this happen sooner rather than later. The only “sticky wicket” is whether WE is going to shell out to move us. if we were paying for the move, it’d basically be a done deal. In the meantime, Heather suggests (because she went through the same thing with her husband) that you start to be more proactive about figuring out what you’d want to be doing there, and researching opportunities and even having informational interviews so that no matter what, you begin to have your own infrastructure in place of information, opportunities and conversations to have, rather than relying solely on me to “lead”. To make it real for yourself, separately from me, which will probably help to alleviate the worry about “well, im moving across the country with my boyfriend with no prospects and no friends and he is going to have to be my everything” because obviously that can put a huge strain on a relationship
