That’s fantastic! Like you said – you’re moving for the job, being closer to the (relatively) new man is just a perk.

I moved to be closer to my boyfriend (2 hrs 45 mins distance) after a year and a half. I moved this past January and am living with a family member that lives 10 minutes down the road from him. I was able to keep my job from my other city and work remotely. I also kept my home in my old town since we’re not engaged yet, so we can make decisions without pressure because of logistics. We agreed on an eight-month timeline before I moved to make a decision so I’m not living in limbo indefinitely. It has been a good move 🙂

Are you moving because of the new job or because of him?  Either way there’s no reason to think it’s “too soon” to be moving closer to him unless maybe you are moving in together.  If it’s for the new job, bonus!!  If it’s because of him, I hope the job works out!

I used to live an hour and a half away from my Fiance.  I ended up moving in with him when I got a new job.. about 4 years later!  Definitely wish I had done it sooner, but I also would not have if I hadn’t gotten my great new job.

I moved for my boyfriend (now FI) after 4 months.  And it was across the country. lol. So I’m not one to judge about moving for a guy. However -I think its just a bonus that the job thing worked out!    =)  Congrats!

Congratulations! We were in a distance relationship for a little over four years — it’s so amazing when that time is finally over!
