Long term girlfriend (3 years) is moving to Australia in October, as of right now she thinks I am going with her. A large % of my social circle are also going. My company will probably not relocate me - our presence is tiny in Oz, meaning I can only get a working holiday visa (temp jobs). Am I mad to move for love?
