My dream job might make things awkward
I was just offered my dream job writing scripts for science videos in New York (very specific dream, I know), but my ex just moved there last month. I know it's a big city and I have every right to be there too, but I'm worried he'll think I moved there, at least in part, because of him. We broke things off because he was moving across the country – I live in Chicago now – and things ended sadly but not badly. We still chat every once in a while and I haven't told him yet that I'll probably be moving out there. I'm not expecting or hoping we'll get back together, but I wouldn't mind seeing him again at least platonically. I'm really excited about this job, but I'm worried about how my motives will be perceived when I finally start telling people.
