Am I retarded for breaking up with my gf to travel?
She wants to move out of our city and settle down in Santa Barbara, but that’s going to suck up a huge chunk of my savings while I find work. It’s a big priority of mine and I’ve finally saved enough to fund at least a years worth of world travel. She has no interest in it.
I genuinely do love her and don’t want to break up with her, it’s a tough choice either way. To settle down and hope to get away maybe once a year for a week - but with someone who loves me, or to see the world and adventure - but alone, and have to find someone new upon my return home. I feel as though I’ll resent her eventually if I don’t do this.
We’ve been dating for about 8 months and have always talked about travel but now she’s adamant that she’s ready to leave within the next few weeks.
Idk guys. What would you do? I’ve never been out of the U.S. but have always wanted to. I’m 25 btw.
