My girlfriend’s next step involves me leaving home

Dear Amy: My girlfriend and I have been together for about five years. We are both progressing in our careers and making strides personally, professionally, and as a couple.

We are at the point where we are ready to take the next step. My girlfriend wants to move to Florida. She wants me to come too, but she plans to go, one way or the other, in the next year or two.

I love Florida, but all of my friends and family are here in New England.

My mom is independent and doesn’t necessarily rely on me, but she would be devastated if I left. After my dad died (about 10 years ago), my sister and mom have relied on me to be there for them. Truthfully, I would miss being there for them, too.
