grumble grumble

Why do I let women run my life? I'm moving to a place I don't really want to live in for the hopes of getting back together with a woman who I'm not sure is right for me.

Is this the same woman who really loved you - but she was annoying - and then you rejected her - so she stopped calling - then you wanted her back and then eveyone pretty much got on you about it?

Nice story, but I don't think that's mine.

She broke up with me cause of the distance. I've always wanted to be with her, but I can't help thinking if she can't deal with distance, what happens when things really get tough? So I'm moving north of Denver to be with her and give it another go.

Oops my bad. Apologies to you. I guess I've been getting all these love stories mixed up.

Anyway. I think that if you do this, make sure it is really in your heart to do so. You might find out for sure if she is "the one" and then you would be settled with your findings. When she sees your heroic intentions, she may respond in a way that proves to you what you may be wondering about. Remember your sacrifices (work, friends, family) if you move. You'd have to start all over again.

If you honestly feel she is worth it, then go for it. If you have doubts.........well, you shouldn't have doubts if she's worth it.

Good luck to you.

Because on some level you get value from women ruining you life.

Once you recognise that behaviour half the battle is over.

I'm heading back to Fort Collins. This will be, like, the 4th or 5th time I thought I escaped, only to be reeled back in. (I like this smily!)

You're ruining your own life. You're the only one who has control over it. If you don't want to live there, then don't. Don't move somewhere you don't want to be... your relationship will probably suffer just for that reason alone.

Unsafe Alpine: I do not give love advice, but I would say if you harbor resentment about the move, etc., this does not bode well for the future. The resentment will grow and fester into something worse unless you remove it from your heart. Go only on your terms my friend, not on anyone else's.

BTW, I am not a lawyer, nor did I stay in a Holiday Inn Express anytime in the recent past.

I figure I'll give it a year, start school, and if it doesn't work out, then I'll move.

Because it's so much easier than doing it for yourself?

Sorry, but with that attitude towards the whole thing, don't even bother moving.

It's doomed.
