I have both moved a across the country to be with someone and had someone move to be with me. In my case though, both moves held opportunity for both of us. To be blunt your situation sounds different. Maybe let me frame it this way.…"
"I have a itching feeling she just doesn't want to deal with the hustle and bustle of the city which I can't hardly blame her for... and NYC is almost 7 hours away from Buffalo so it's not exactly a convenient distance.
We have talked…"
"I'm with Stein, bud.
Besides, Western NY is a day trip from NYC, so what's the big deal for her moving? If she never wants to leave Batavia or wherever, then you need to decide if YOU never want to leave Batavia.
How often would you guys…"
"No. As my father would say, you need a kick in the arse. You got a job and your life is on the up and up and you are going to throw it away for what? If you guys have some special love then surely she can come to NYC so at least one of you have a…"
"To be honest this sounds like a 'first love' for both of you, and one in which there has hardly been enough time and opportunity for you two even to know one another, let alone have the depth of commitment (or even the emotional maturity)…"
"I understand not financing her education. I actually made an edit to show that she has actually found a solution for that.
I think the concern about 'falling in love with the idea' is legitimate but I'm inclined to think that that is…"
"This choice is souly up to you, but let me touch on my experience. I am only a little older than you (25) but had a similer experience in the fact that I was dating a girl for an extended period of time and got engaged. I was given the choice…"

"Love doesn't put food on the table but love makes life worth living. I know there is a smallish town with a number of companies near Buffalo, it's called Rochester. There is also Erie, PA and Pittsburgh, Erie being 90 minutes…"
"I don't know. I don't know how to know. I'll ramble a bit.
You had a falling out. If you had one, you'll likely have another. What will you do then?
You've only seen her about 10 times in the flesh.…"
""Creative" can be learned, in my experience. Talent is helpful at the start, but hard work is the other 98% of what gets you there.
But I would agree with the "driven" aspect. You have to want to do it, and be willing to…"
"This was touched upon by a few respondents.
How detailed do you get as far as the 'fashion' goes? Do you account for culture(s), locale, skin type, age, financial status, or any other factors other than what is trendy in a subset of…"
You may have an interest in those things but do you have the talent? My nephew wanted very much to be an NBA basketball player. However, he didn't have the talent for such. It's tough but it happens.…"
