Feeling Guilty

Hi everyone!

Just wanted to share a bit about my story.  My boyfriend and I have been together for 9 months.  We met over the summer and were together for about 2 months until we had to go back to school.  We live about 5 hours apart but have been lucky and crazy and in love and impetuous enough to have made it work so far. We have been lucky enough to see each other about once a month sometimes more.  For that I am so grateful.  We have such an amazing connection and almost never fight, and have really proven that we will sacrifice to be together. 

We only have to be apart for another few months while we finish out the semester, but that is where the tricky part of the story comes in.  My boyfriend will be graduating this year, and he wants more than anything to move to my city for next year.  He has applied to some grad schools in my area, but we are still waiting to hear from them.  In the meantime, he has told me that he will move here no matter what, whether he gets in or not.  I can't help but feeling a ittle guilty for this, but I'm not sure if I should.  Should I feel bad that he is making his life decisions based on me? I mean, I love him so much and know that things will work out between us, its not a question of that.  But I just don't know if moving here would be something he would want to do if it weren't for me and I just want him to do what will make him happy.  Does anyone have any advice on situation like this? Thanks
