Hm, I suppose that could be worth a discussion with him. Though I kind of wanted to obtain some kind of visa without having him involved, just in case things don't work out--I guess that's not an option though.

Been through that twice now, pain in the butt having to get married, would have gotten married eventually but sooner was more convenient.

International love.

Ah, nothing like it.

God I wish things weren't so complicated. I was thinking of maybe applying for a Working Vacation visa, staying for around 5 months (I think that's the limit, right?) and seeing what happens with this guy.

Do you mean coming under the Working Holidaymaker scheme?  If so, I'm afraid to rain on your parade again.  As citizens of the US, we're not eligible.  http://www.ukvisas.gov.uk/servlet/Front?pagename=OpenMarket/Xcelerate/ShowPage&c=Page&cid=1018721068240

Have you ever considered nursing school?


Not kidding. If I had it to do over again, I'd get a nursing degree. You basically can write your own ticket anywhere in the world.

Yeah I looked that up again and saw that :( I really don't know what to do now, may as well just give up.

are you a recent graduate of a US university?

Meg - I'm currently in a US University, will be graduating next year.

Victoria - Right now I'm working on getting my BA in communications. I looked at the list of jobs that were needed in the UK (like Social worker and things) and I doubt I'll be able to get one of those jobs. God, I have like all odds against me right now. I'm sorry for wasting all of your time, for some reason I thought it was possible.

Don't give up and you aint wasting anyone's time. If anyone can help, they will and do so because they want to help. We all feel for you. It is not easy but whoever said love was easy.
Something will eventually work out.

ditto on the BUNAC suggestion!  I was looking into that as well for a bit :)
