My name is David, I live in Gothenburg, Sweden. I met an incredibly wonderful girl online, from San Antonio. I can't even describe this girl, she's amazing in every way and I feel extremely happy when I'm talking to her.
After one year of the long distance relationship, the distance is getting to her. She loves me very much and I love her, but not being able to be with me is causing her a lot of pain.
So I'm looking for ways for me to be able to travel to San Antonio.
I'm 22 years old. I got out of school(University) last year(2013) but have a couple of essays to correct before getting my diploma. I've been trying to do this for over a year now, but my teacher takes months to respond to me, so it might take a little while longer. This should get solved this year.
I have student loans, but not that much(about 17.000$) and I should be able to pay that off within one year.
Now for the part where I need help:
Would I be able to temporary move to San Antonio on any VISA? For example: Spend 1 or 2 years there while working somewhere. I graduated in 3D-Visualisation, however it's extremely hard to get work in that business. She works at Starbucks while she's in school, would I be able to work at a similar company on any VISA?
I realize that the most secure option is to marry her, but I don't think it's a good idea until we've lived together for some time. Or at least seen each other a few times. I would need to get to know her family, her friends.
The Green Card Lottery seems too far fetched.
Any information about VISAs or just general advice would be, truly, greatly appreciated. I'm just trying to find information everywhere, but it's hard.
Thank you in advance,
