Have you or would you ever pick up everything and move out of state to be with someone else?

I was wondering if anyone else has ever moved out of state to start a relationship with?

I am from Maine My boyfriend is from Tennessee.
We met on the internet over 4 years ago
He moved to Upstate NY 2 years ago in August so it became a 8 hour drive
Our relationship grew closer after we met for the first in Mass. at a concert
I was instantly in love and skipped out on work for the next 2 days following him back to NY XP for the next few months we traveled back and forth visiting one anther once a month. Spending hours on the phone every night and texting constantly.
His mom and I became close it was her idea for me to move to NY to surprise him for Christmas in 2010. I'm not gonna lie It has been hard. I got a job within the first 2 weeks. we moved I kept that job and made some work friends, and my boys band members were still close enough to visit all the time. We moved an hour west of where we were & moved once more by the end of it. we have a strong strong relationship I would not give it up for anything.
I miss Maine alot & he misses Tennessee. things are so much different here.
I had a few work friends that I really enjoyed but I am starting a new job in a week...
Has anyone else been though anything like this?

On the bring side we have great friends an hour away who are coming to visit tomorrow I'm So excited!!!!!!!

My wife moved from Kentucky to the LA Area where we met. What was suppose to be a temporary assignment became permanent when she chose to stay with me instead of returning. That was 22+ years ago - and although she misses her family, we have a wonderful life together. She was about your age when she made the decision.

Good luck with whatever choice you make!

My husband and I are form the same state as when we met. However, if I was not married...I would possibly consider it and weigh my options.

My ex-husband moved from Arkansas to Florida to be with me. He was supposed to have visited for a month, but he never left. (If I had enough sense of self back then, I would have sent his ass packing within three days of his arrival. Instead, it ended up being ten years of celibate hell.)

I was willing to move to England to be with former-Master. Guess I dodged that one. Although I can't help but think he wouldn't have let me go if we lived much closer - across town or a county line is much closer than 4,000 miles, and doesn't cost as much to visit. :-/

My guy moved here from a small town in PA, to Baltimore, Maryland leaving his family and his job and his friends, all to come live with me, on the exact 2 month mark of us not only dating, but having known each other in general. we met online and I drove 2 hours, twice a week to see him (he didn't have his car apparently his ex stole it) until he moved in with me.

I would GLADLY move away from everything I have if it would make him happy and we could afford a place elsewhere and could be just as stable. We actually discussed the possibility since he is considering going to work after deciding to take a couple of years off to just have fun

So I may be doing the same!

For me the answer is somewhat more difficult to answer. I would gladly give up my life here to move to be in a place closer to a man I loved. But I know me. My relationship with him would suffer. And I'm in love with China.

I've done something similar three times in my life, where I moved to explore parts of the world and culture moving to a place where I knew no one. That is the hardest part. Staking out a place for yourself in a new environment. It is scary as hell, and it does leave a mark on you.

You'll never get over that missing of your family, and each time you see them it gets harder and harder because for many of us who have moved away, our families continue to think of us as the way we were when we left. And then each time you leave you'll feel that pang in your heart that you are leaving again. And the worst comes when something happens within your family and you think "what if I was there?".

It's not easy.

But is it worth it? For me I didn't move to be with a man. I fell in love with a country and it has been the best thing I've ever done with my life.
