verde1 Posted April 19, 2017 Share Posted April 19, 2017 I’m at a strange point in my life. I’m 36. Been engaged before. I last lived in SoCal and have been traveling and living on the road for about 18 months. I’m ready to “settle down” and have a home base, and travel more just on vacations. Throughout my travels, I loved mountain towns, and outdoor anything. I visited my family in Chicago and through one way or another I met a pretty amazing woman here 2 months ago. I was planning to stay a week and now I’m still here. The problem is I hate it here. I’m not a city person, and there’s no nature around. No mountains, no nice weather etc. Just noise, traffic, terrible weather, etc. She knows I hate it here, but she’s stuck here at least another year for work before she’d consider relocating. I’m currently renting by the week or by the month ($$$) with one foot half in and half out. My concern is in a year staying here will I go crazy, and possibly even be depressed in this concrete jungle. But if she wasn’t amazing I’d have been gone 7 weeks ago. She’s not interested in a long distance relationship, so it seems either I stay a year (sign a lease?) and see how things goes, or just give it up and settle down somewhere that makes me happy and (hopefully) meet a girl as great as her there. Thoughts? Thanks in advance. Link to comment
