Portly? Thank you. You know, where does one shop after they outgrow George Richards Big and Tall shop? I haven't found that place yet. In the meantime, the army and navy store have an excellent selection of tents.
I have to say, honestly that, this is a hard question to answer. I have two wonderful boys and I am divorced. If I found true love and wanted to relocate alot of things would have to fall in place. If my ex didn't cause a stir about me moving with my kids (I would never leave them). If the relationship was true and lasting. Ect... I would love to move someplace warm but again (as above reasons) all the pieces of the puzzle have to fit together. Take care and be safe, Angelpassion

Well I'm still in a debate with me, myself, I and MOI, about LDR's. True my daughters are ready to leave soon too. True, I can do my job anywhere. I think "MOI" is going to win the debate as far as relocating, but I think I would stick to the East Coast.
BUT I'm getting there in the reasoning part... aren't I???? Aren't you guys proud of me???
Real - Yes it was around 16, about the time he got his first girlfriend. He wanted his independence, and often talks to everyone around him (excluding his girlfriend) in a belligerent manner. Friends all tell me it's just a stage, he'll grow out of it around 20 or so. I can't wait! :-) Meanwhile, if I ask, he'll do something with me...providing I'm not asking too often! :-)
I still have my daughter to do alot with. We have been so close. But she too is starting to do more & more with her friends leaving me alone. I hate that feeling, so I make plans with my friends. It never fails that if I make plans ahead of time, hers change and then she wants me to be there with her! lol Can't win! :-) I'm starting to feel the separation anxiety now for when she leaves in 1.5 yrs. Having a significant other in one's life definitely helps to subdue those feelings some.
I met a lady 3 wks ago. She was telling me she divorced her husband when she was 43, met someone when she was 55, and they married when she was 56 yrs. God I hope it doesn't take me that long! Well, I no one thing, with my kids gone I won't be sitting around here waiting of it to happen.
Tomi, that's the perfect way to think of it ... an adventure. I have to move soon and I was sitting in my house the other day looking at all my art strewn around and my sculptures and notebooks and junk, and I got a little melancholy. I was thinking how much of an upheaval moving is. And then I thought to myself, "Self? Don't be such a wimp! You're the adventurer girl! You'll try anything! You adapt to ANY circumstance! Why am I talking like I'm two different people?"
So I threw away my security blanket and decided ...., "I'm off!" (of which there is little doubt at times) ... and I started packing. I'm thinking of moving permanently to Toronto, tho I'm open to suggestions if any MM males have them!
I would most definitely relocate if I was sure I had found 'the one". I would have to be sure also that HE was on the same page. My son is in VA, my daughter, in CA, and I have lived in this town for most of my life.. Since I have been divorced for 5 years now, it's time for a new adventure.....
sharp1 i think i actually started feeling it with him when he turned 16, it just got worse.he has always been the most independant kid of my 4 yet..they all are ,but he is more so that way.he wouldnt let me take him to school or anything...some of that macho stuff...so then is when i really started feeling lonely & has got worse...i still see him as that pretty baby i loved to rock...oh geez...there's a tear in my coffee.

Real - I can sympathize & relate to you soooo much. My son just turned 18 Sunday. It brought to my realization how life is about to change sooo much for me. For the first Summer in 17 yrs I won't have both my kids around me. My daughter will be leaving by Sept. 2006. This past Monday, I was suffering a bad case or "pre-Mother Separation Anxiety"! I can't wait till it really hits! NOT!!! :-) Maybe a little different than yourself, but still the 'blues'. lol
Katie you are quite right!
LOL... I know... I put Naples because I was planning to go there and had to cancel my trip at the last minute. I try to explain it a bit in my profile. I guess I should change my location......

I would relocate in a heart beat for love. SRM I can see where you are coming from on what keeps you there, being a parent myself if I couldn't take my children with me it would be out of the question also.
Yep, I would relocate! Maybe a bit easier for me since I have no kids.
BUT, I would relocate only if I were 200% sure of the other one's feelings and intentions.
After all, I live across the ocean - not just a few states away.... it would be a big step for me.
Of course, who knows... maybe I will end up moving to the USA anyway... stranger things have happened!
