Similar thing just happened to me. Also finding it hard as a female finding a guy who will support my career goals. Even when they said they would, as soon as I eclipsed them in salary things got weird. 3.5 years of living together, 5 dating, for nothing.

I get all the "they didn't support you or your ambition" comments but it's hardAF for the person who is not traveling. I told me fiancé at the time that I would not be giving up my consultant lifestyle for marriage. He was ok with it. But a year into our marriage I can see what an injustice I am doing to him. It's a lonely life and not everyone wants to live that way. So the point is never say never - when you're ready, you'll make efforts to be local and be with your SO. I am still working on the last part but at least aware of it every day and appreciate what he's had to put up with. As someone who travels I don't think I'd be ok if the tables were turned and my SO was the traveller. Heck no.
