I moved from a pretty populated suburban area with all the big box store you could need ... to no big box stores within 200 miles for a job I love. I knew coming here, there'd be no chance in hell of dating and almost no chance of getting laid. But the job comes first and I am very happy here professionally.. If I were to go to a big city where I might have a chance at dating, I'd be miserable personally.. and since I've had no luck dating before, I threw caution to the wind and moved to a remote place.
Doesn't mean I don't get lonely and don't long for companionship. I do.
Does this all make sense? Bills and professional happyness have to come first, I need to eat and live ya know :)
