WTBE.....Thank you. I think you were right when you said I didn't "lose out" in terms of my choosing not to "settle" for a relationship that didn't meet my needs. It took a few "tries" to break it off totally, but I have NO regrets that I made that decision.
I don't regret having made the move, either. As I shared, I had been wanting to move to a warmer climate and...while I loved my previous job...it was very stressful. I now work 40 hours a week instead of 50 or 60. Thanks to the feedback and support of others on this site, I worked at being very honest with myself about not making the move ONLY to be near to my guy/couple since our relationship was still quite new. I think had I not made the move and given the relationship a genuine try...I would have had many questions and regrets. At the same time, that's why I continue to come to this site....to offer others any benefit from my experiences ....just as I benefited from others on here with far more experience than myself.
Blessings to all on this Journey....
