    Love is blind and sometimes insane. So I don’t know what I’d do if I was “that gone” in a relationship. I considered moving to LA for someone once, even though I wasn’t even sure being with him at all was a good thing. However, I did not entertain the idea of traveling to his birth country, mainly because I was scared of what could happen to a woman in that situation, should her man prove to be other than what he pretended.

    But in a case where I was not ambivalent but totally head-over-heels, I might have considered making a significant move.

    When my brain is functioning normally, I always say I don’t want to move away from my family. That might change as I get older, I don’t know. The amount of time I spend with my family has decreased a lot over the years, even though I live only an hour away. So maybe having to fly home for those times wouldn’t be such a big deal. I guess nothing is really carved in stone.

    I am married to this person or just in a relationship? If I’m married and his job takes him there that’s one thing, but if it’s just a boyfriend IDK! Can it just be a distant state? Toby and I would love to move to Hawaii someday!

    I’m not sure how you should take it Sue. I guess it’s different for everyone. I’ve lived away from family a few times and it’s a lot harder than it appears. You miss all those “little things” so much.

    At this stage, I wouldn’t leave the little kids.

    I don’t like these questions, Joy! 😛 I always want to argue… Does Skype count? How do I know I will NEVER see them again? Why would we HAVE to move? What country exactly? Because that makes a big difference, LOL. (I’m no fun at these games!)

    I’d have to say no at least thinking about it no

    Well it kinda depends whether I could NEVER EVER see my family again or just not that often. If its the first…. I’d probably have to say no. If its the latter..then sure. I already live 2000 miles from my parents and over 5000 miles from my sisters and my extended family. I’m already used to not seeing them often.

    Love can be such a fickle emotion. NO, I’ve already been through to much with my family. I know how nutty each one of them are. No telling how much more nuttier those dang foreigners would be.

    No…family is too important. We’ve talked about moving and we both know we never could!
