Thanks for all of the feedback. An update is in order.
My man had some business Stateside this past weekend, so I flew out to meet him, at his request. Loiralei, it turns out that he turned down a transfer job offer within his company in another country close to his in order to consider two other transfer offers–one Stateside and one in a nearby province of Canada. About eight months into our relationship, we began the “where do we see this going” relationship talk. He told me then that he would consider moving Stateside, and I subsequently told him I would consider moving to his country. Part of the reason for this last trip was to explore the details of these two job openings and discuss them with his supervisors.
Obviously, as Jeff says, he could merely pay lip service saying that he would move for me. But he’s actively pursuing it. While discussing this last weekend, in fact, my man said, “With me, actions speak louder than words.” I told him that I can’t imagine him making a career move to another country for someone he doesn’t love. He just smiled, but still wouldn’t say anything regarding the feelings bit. I actually didn’t mind, because I was paying attention to his actions, which, I think, speak consistently about his level of commitment to me.
