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…"
"You have spent very little actual face time with this girl. The relationship has been rocky. You may love the idea of each other rather than really loving each other. The person who needs to step up to the plate for Nancy…"
"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.…"
"I'm an optimistic hopping doggy; I think the Iran deal could smooth things out.
Then again, we might see a Saudi-Iranian war; so there's that.
Too many variables. Plans within plans. Wheels within wheels. Conflict upon conflict since…"
""We've seen dynasties in Africa, America, and the Middle East fall after a tedious, conflict ridden rule"
Yeah but we've also seen the Alawites walk away from these types of things stronger than ever before. See Assad…"
"And how do you propose we distinguish between them, and those simply fleeing their homes in search of refuge?
Lebanon and Turkey take in millions of refugees each year. Europe needs to suck it up a bit and do their part. "
"Because, you know, they wouldn't be fleeing the region if it was a stable, happy land, right? ISIS and their ilk are a big part of the refugee crisis, which is neither an 'invasion' nor full of 'islamic extremists'. I…"
