Hi, I have been in a long distance relationship with my girlfriend for 2 and a half years. I live in the US and she lives in UK. We met in the summer 2 years ago, and she came to the States for a visit once after that. This past summer, we spent 2 months together. We love each other so much and are very serious about this relationship. It has been difficult the past 2.5 years but we managed and we got along really well. She lives in UK and I am considering moving there. However, I can't help but thinking if I am being irrational. Can anyone give me some opinions on this?
Well If you really love her and have good opportunities out there in the UK, you should follow your feelings. However if your are working in the US and are well settled, it would be irrational. Long Distance Relations thrive on Trust and Understanding. I have been Happily Married to my Long distance Lover. You should also check if your girl is happy with your decision to move places. Moving for Love is completely rational thing.
Thanks for your response, Jyoti! I am not sure if I would have good opportunities in UK, but I just graduated from college and don't have a job in the US. I don't actually want to stay here anyway. That is part of why I made the decision. I discussed it with my girlfriend and she is very happy about me moving there. I love her very much and would do anything to be with her. I still have doubts only because I am afraid that I won't be able to support myself financially.
Well that's good that you are just out of college. Maybe UK is gonna open doors for your future. After knowing that you anyway don't wanna stay in the States and that your girlfriend would be only happier, I strongly suggest you should shift asap. Good Luck for your future.
I don't see it as irrational.
You said you have a good relationship and you both are obviously serious, as you have committed 2 1/2 years to the relationship.
Go where your heart leads you.
Good luck to you
Thank you. I thought so too. We have a pretty much perfect relationship and we went through so much together. But I sometimes worry if I am being irrational. Anyway, thank you for your response!
I have only one advice: Follow your heart...
And your guts feeling.
Perhaps, you can talk to her and see what she says
Best of luck
I say go for it. You only live once. Life is short and to be quite honest most of us, at the end of our lives, regret things we didnt do more than the things we did do.
So go for it.
GO FOR IT! GO FOR IT! GO FOR IT!
LOVE is the best reason to do anything.
To love someone, to truly love them, it is worth a million dollars. If you both feel the same way nothing will be lost. To find a true love often takes a lifetime, don't miss your opportunity!
The best thing to do in any type of situation, is to sit down and make a list. On one side right good, the other write bad, and draw a line in the middle. Now think hard and contemplate as many possible answers for both sides. When you weigh the ups and downs, it will show you what you really care about and should make the answer more logical for you. Good Luck
very few accomplishments in life fulfill the way love does. The thing about us as humans is that we adapt. We are able to move, live, and move again if needed. It is not often that we are not locked into an area for one reason or another. I say move only if you have it in you to make it worth your while regardless what happens in the end.

There are two guys.Upfront, I am going to be practical(as I am in my early 40s), but at the back of my mind, I still value "pure love". I've never been married, no children, having been busy with my study and work all my life. I am tired of working and single life and want to retire and...
