Thinking about relocation...could use some guidance.

    I am really struggling with a major decision...I have lived in Columbus for about 9 years. I was in a long-term relationship until about two years ago. I ended it because I was not happy for a lot of reasons. Ever since then, I have focused more intently on growth and self-development. I am happy with the way I am evolving and changing.

    The big question it time to relocate? I tried really hard to meet guys here in Columbus: I belong to several of these sites, go out as often as I can, get involved in the community, DJ for events, and try to keep a positive attitude. I have been talking with an amazing guy who lives in another city for a while now and we are getting along really well. The plain truth is that I am extremely frustrated with Columbus on many levels; I should have been able to get involved with someone in Columbus, but the guys here are just weird.

    The way I see it right now is this: relocating to a more liberated part of the country (Ohio is repressed and uptight) could only be a positive step, even if things didn't work out with the guy I'm interested in. At least I would be in a place where I am MORE LIKELY to find someone.

    Do it! Sounds like your current city is not a good match for you. Time for a fresh start somewhere else. icon_cool.gif

    I kinda went through the same thing 3 years ago. I don't believe the problem is so much the city you live in but rather the way that you view it. your view of the city not supporting relationships is becoming a reality.

    however, i am not you, but consider the alternate view i offer.

    I am returning to seattle to visit after a 2.5 year absence in minneapolis. I have a feeling that when I return tomorrow, I will realize that it was simply my perspective, not the city.

    Have you thought about having to make all new friends again. Finding a satisfying job somewhere else? If so, go for it!

    Thanks guys! Those were helpful comments. I wouldn't mind making new friends and finding a different job. I have only a few close friends here anyhow. I am not a social butterfly; I prefer a few good friends over a bunch of platonic friends.
