This is my first post on here so I apologise in advance if this has been asked/debated before but I wanted to gain a fresh perspective.
So the situation is like this: my girlfriend and I met in 2013 in Australia (both on working holiday visas), we travelled together for little under a year to various countries after our visas expired and have been living in our respective countries ever since April 2014. Since then we have been able to maintain a ‘close’ but long distance relationship via Skype, Whatsapp and Facetime. I went to visit her in September 2014 (my second trip to the rock) and caught up with her family for the second time too. We can’t really communicate a huge amount but judging from their friendliness and abundant smiling, I feel they like me! She then met my family for the first time in Thailand (family hols) in February 2015 and most recently we met again for a holiday in Japan (just the two of us). This has meant we have been able to meet at least once every 6 months whilst we try and figure out something long term. It is also worth mentioning that she has been to England before albeit before we met.
It is now coming to the stage where we cannot bear to be away from each other for much longer and we need to find a resolution asap. One of the options (arguably the easier to organise) would be for me to move to Taiwan for a year. However I have searched for jobs online and it seems the most viable/appealing option is for me to enrol in a Mandarin school (I can speak A LITTLE) whilst teaching English part time (I have a Masters in Engineering). However I have quite a good career going for me in England and am worried I will need to start all over again if we wish to relocate back to England in the future. I think this will happen as I have heard opportunities are few and far between in Taiwan.
The alternative would be for her to move to England but she will not be able to work or study and I am worried my salary will not cover both of us (I live and work in London). She is happy to do this but I am not sure this is financially possible.
I am really stuck in a bad position and any advice on what I should do would be most appreciated.
