Choosing between Boston and ‘the one’

Q. I was born and raised in Boston and that’s truly where my heart lies. My company relocated for work (five years ago) to a different city that isn’t too far from Boston, but far enough to make traveling back difficult and costly (but not impossible). Ever since I left Boston I’ve been miserable, and for the last three years I have looked for the right job opportunity that would allow me to return. After almost five years away and three years actively looking, I have a few job prospects and I feel comfortable that one should work out.

A few of those jobs would start in a month or two, and I’ve made it to the final round of interviews.
