I just did this exact thing last week.. Moved from Florida to Minnesota to be with my love whom I met on Agnostic just over 3 months ago. We are perfect for each other and we couldn't let distance stand in the way of a love like this. I had nothing to tie me down to Florida so I was fluid (and brave) enough to make the move.

That's awesome! Congratulations!

Good luck!!! Hope you never have a moment's regret.

One small piece of advice. Get a good pair of boots.
I moved from Florida to Maine. When winter started (October), I was
miserable until I got a good pair of boots. Paying for LL Bean boots was
worth every penny. You'll adjust a lot better if your feet aren't cold and wet.

why is it mostly women who move to be with a man?

Good for you! Hope it all works out for you both!

You realize you are the exception, not the norm ... right? Anyhow, good for you

@IamNobody I didn't realize I am either. I just did what worked for me/us as I'm sure everyone who has done a move like this before me. If it works...or even if you think its going to work, you give it your best shot. No regrets or wasting time on 'what if's'...life it too short for that crap.

@benhmiller I don't know if it is. How do you know it's mostly women? I personally know of 2 men who made the move to be with the woman.

@KKGator Thank you for the advice. Well and truly noted. I have already had a lot of use out of my raincoat and I'm looking for the perfect winter boots to get me through my first MN winter. I already have a winter jacket that I 'think' will be warm enough....but I think this change in climate is going to take some getting used to.

@benhmiller Very good question!

@Hazydays LL Bean website.

@Hazydays I meant you're lucky... To find someone here and move forward doesn't happen every day

Congrats join the club-didn't know of anyone else - there are a few others.

@benhmiller Good question.

My thoughts exactly.

I have done so in the past. I wouldn't do it again.

Unless you have the means to extricate yourself the moment things
go sideways, I advise against it.
I'm not saying they will go bad, but you should always leave room for that possibility in your plans.

Be in love, be hopeful, but be realistic. Always protect yourself.

I would move for a pack of camels and a six pack. Kansas sucks.

It's not something I've ever thought about. It seems that I would, because now I'm about to make that leap. A new adventure, 2300 miles. Holy shit. πŸ˜€

I did. I am one of the few who fell in love here and relocated to NY State from NH 3 months ago. My boundaries were open-I am renting out my house to my daugher and her in-laws family so it works for me. Our_existance and I are very happy.

So happy to hear of another agnostic love story. Also glad to hear it’s working out for you both also.

Absolutely yes..Love is the reason why we are happy, and it sealed two lovers and make them become one..Yes i would move for true love, i really don't care about the distance as long as we are happy and deserve true love..

A face to face meeting(maybe several).to find out is there's a "Spark" between the one you have potential with,I'd think,before a long distance move.

"I would do anything for love, but I won't do that..."

Haha...just kidding. It would all depend on the person I met.

Haha. Never.

"Love" will leave you in a heartbeat.
I'd only ever move to advance my career, I'm lucky, I love what I do so I don't need interpseronal relationships anymore. I'm content and at peace now.

if I met the perfect person yes even if it doesn't work out its better than spending the rest of my life wondering what if.

Nerp. My perfect person for the next 10'ish years is my son. I will live wherever is best for him. If that means missing out on a romantic relationship, then that's what it means. Although a perfect partner would understand that and relocate to us.

My divorce decree states I cannot move out of Texas while my children are minors. Once they’re off to college, I’m free to live my life.

you were married to a controlling man it seems.

@benhmiller I’m not a citizen, he was afraid I’d take the boys to Canada

Yes.

It's not wise for a woman to ever move to be with a man.
If things don't work out, she's already lost her former job, is out the moving costs, and could suddenly find herself broke and homeless, and having to depend on charity of friends and relatives to establish herself again someplace else, pay deposits, insurance, etc.

If a man wants to be with a lover, he can move near the woman.

You always have great advice.πŸ‘

I've done it several times in my life. Just because it didn't work for me doesn't mean it won't for someone else. But yes, I would do it again if I found the right person.

Definitely. Jamestown is a shithole. If I didn't have children I would have left years ago by myself
