The one that might get away

I fell in love with an amazing girl 3 years ago; the only problem was she had a boyfriend at the time. I figured it was best to just keep my distance and not try to end her relationship with her high school sweetheart and the guy who had given her a pre-engagement ring. Over the years we spent a lot of time together since we were friends with the same group of people. As the years went by we became really great friends and its one of the few times I enjoyed being labeled just friends.
A few months ago her boyfriend broke things off. Like any good friend I stayed by her side and helped her through the rough patch. I really want to ask her out now, but the problem is that I don't want to be the rebound guy and not only lose out on being her boyfriend but also her friend.
She is actually going to be moving out of the country for six months to study in China starting after New Years and when she returns I'll be just moving out of state to start my dream job. Do I give up all I worked for to try and make something out of a possible relationship or do I put down the torch and move on to find another dream girl?
Two dreams that can't coincide. I loved the choose your own adventure books as a kid, but its much harder in real life.
