If you can't afford to go to school near him and pay your own way, then you should consider staying or going to a school that you can afford. He, unfortunately, is under no financial obligation to help you just so you can be near him unless he's already offered to do that. If he hasn't offered it, but knows you're unable to pay, then that is your answer- he doesn't think it's his responsibility to financially pay for you, and it's tough advice, but that's because he isn't responsible for you... You are. If this means staying long distance, then so be it. If the long distance ultimately leads to the demise of your relationship, but he knew he could've done something to stop it, then he's made his choice and you just need to worry about you and do what is best for you, regardless of what he does. It's not best for you to go into a bunch of debt simply to be near him. He'll see you as a stronger, more admirable person for taking charge of your own life and doing what is best for you and your finances than if you just become a financial burden to him by moving wherever he is.
