For two years, JC, 24, pursued his co-worker, Tessa. But she was in a relationship. Then, one day she wasn't and she let JC know that she had been feeling the same way about him. Two weeks later he got a job offer he couldn't refuse, but that meant relocating 1,000 miles away. Tessa told him she didn't believe in long-distance relationships. She gave him a choice: the relationship or the new job.
"It was a really tough choice; it was the job of my dreams, and yet, she was the woman of the my dreams," JC remembers. "I chose the job figuring I could get her back after I became successful." He didn't.
