Confused and scared

My bf and I have been together almost three years. The first year and a half was long distance. We live together currently at his grandparents house and get treated terrible. We have the opportunity to move to my home state and get an apartment and a well paying job for him. He says I should go first and that if I make him go now he will resent me for it and that it will cause problems. I’ve been begging for a month and this apartment and job can only be held for so long that if he doesn’t come now he will ruin these two great opportunities for us. What do I do?
