My boyfriend and I started a business together and its really starting to affect us. For the first 10 months, it went really well. But due to our investment money running dry we have been having a hard time turning a profit. I know its bad to work with your loved one, but I am not here asking for a lecture about that. 

We love each other very much, but I am not happy working with our other 2 business partners (they own 2/3 of the business). They ruin deals and make me feel ineffective. 

I want out. 

I have another job that I do part time, and its a legit job that looks good on my resume (I am not waiting tables here). But it is not my passion. 

I am exploring living somewhere else (maybe moving home) because I miss my family and feel that at 24, I should be having more adventures. 

But I feel torn because I love my boyfriend very much. I just feel like I have no reason to be living in NYC anymore. He is really the only reason I am here. I mean I have friends here, yes, but it is really expensive here and I rarely get to take trips to see my other loved ones. 

I miss home and I want to explore other places. However, we have both talked about marriage and feel like it could be viable option once we start making better money. But right now, we feel that we are too poor to start that chapter. I don't want to ruin my relationship by running away but I am not happy doing what I am doing right now. 

What should I do? I want to do what makes me happy but I don't know what that is.

I think you need to communicate with your boyfriend the
exact post that you wrote. You probably can't say it any better than that. Relationships require that two people have the ability to communicate with each other. Work with him to seek a solution.
