Im have a friend in New york I met on here, cold, hello
I have lived many places in the U.S. as a flight attendant and in London twice and I am in the location I am in strictly due to circumstances-an injury and not currently working. So I am looking to make a move but, It would have to be for marriage. Tish
I would under certains guarantees... I've done it before out of love and moved to Australia and when it didn't work, it was me the one tha have to leave heartbroken and with NOTHING. I gave it friends and family, job and country and start all over from zero is very tough.
Again, it's still an option but I will have to make sure I am ok if things don't work out well... better save than sorry (again)!
I can't imagine who wouldn't relocate for true, true love! I can understand having a hard time making a move across the world with all the craziness out there in our world today, but across the country? Wow, just to wake up beside the same person everyday who loves you unconditionally and vice versa... it sounds like a dream to me! Distance wouldn't be a factor for an honestly genuine relationship!
Relocation....although a tough subject...should never the less be easy...If you love the person you are with and they love you....if one is moving to the other..or vise versa....then it is best for the person that had someone move, to make them feel at home...introduce the "love" to everyone....get them to meet your local butchers or store...etc...as months pass by....you will make friends and get to feel more comfortable.
People move for work....love shouldn't be that hard either....
I have moved several times....one for love...the rest for work and school purposes...and in neither cases...did I feel like I was alone...sure you miss the little things back home....but my motto is....Anywhere I live...that's my home....I get to visit/they visit...so I wont be particularly home sick as such....If I am...thank God there's such things as phones...and emails..and video conferencing.
Relocation only becomes a problem...If you let it be.
One always needs to broaden one's horizons
If I found the man I connect with I would relocate anywhere...well maybe not a really cold climate ;)
In all seriousness, if I am happy with who I am with, it doesn't matter where I am living, and I love the adventure of experiencing new cultures.
I've relocated so many times that when I think about it, it is amazing. And here I am in Chile. I truly loved living in New York.
All my family is in the US and I can tell you that living far away can be very hard sometimes....especially around holidays and birthdays.
One of the drawbacks....seriously....is that being a transplanted person moving from place to place, you lose a sense of where you belong. I am not a citizen here. I have a Permanent Residence. When I think of "home", I really don't know where that is anymore. I feel part of this culture but my roots are in the US.
Relocating can be a difficult thing.
Just my ramble for the day.
I would be. I did it once when I came to the US at the tender age of 18 after I married my ex GI. It was hard coming to a country that I had so little knowledge off, 5000 miles away from home. It made me a stronger person, allowed me to learn not just the culture and language, but also showed me what I was capable off. Would I do it again now....relocate for love. Yes! However this time it won't be barefoot and pregnant, naive and without knowledge of the language or the culture of a new country, as long as it is here in the US somewhere, or any english speaking country for that matter. Certainly it will have to be for the love of my life and for the happily ever after part. True Love has no fear and is unconditional. Hopefully that still exists in real life and not just in Cinderella and Bible stories.
I am free to re-locate, just a matter of selling off my assets, children all grown up, and I love the U.S. I live border city to Detroit, Michigan. He must be serious and ready to commit to marriage due to immigration laws.
Relocation's pretty much out of the question for me, since I've got a child and the whole custodial situation pretty much restricts me to my city. Even if that weren't a factor, I don't think I could do it. It seems like the whole situation is rife for some major power imbalance where the person who DOESN'T have to move is holding all the cards and making all the rules. They own the home, or at least have their name on the apartment lease. They pretty much have nothing to lose. The other one who's relocating is probably going to be expected to leave behind or get rid of all duplicate furniture items, major electronics items, along with their families and jobs, and with no guarantee that this person they're moving for won't get bored with them and kick them to the curb within a month of them making such a major sacrifice. I've actually seen guys online BRAG about how they strung some woman (and sometimes more than just one) along to the point of getting her to move to be with them, not because they actually WANTED to spend the rest of their lives with her, but just as some sick game to "see if she would really do it."
This is open for discussion between the two people involved.....if one is in love and I mean truly in love....yadiyara...etc.....then I think both should sit down and contemplate what is best....for them.....relocation is not a problem, I mean people do it for work.....why not for true love..?
