KittyKatz :  So long as you don’t hate the new state, which it doesn’t sound is the case, I say go for it. More money and getting away from your ex sounds great. Plus you get to work one week per month in the state you like, so it’s not like you’re saying good bye forever.

Leave your ex out of this decision completely. This is about what’s right for YOU. This sounds like a terrific opportunity–AND you may even be able to work in the state you love part of the time. And who knows, you might even love the new place, too. I say take it!

I understand how you feel– I don’t think anything could get me to leave my state! That said though, your new job sounds like absolute perfection, and I think it offers enough that you’d be happy doing it even though you won’t be living in your own state full time. Even then though, you get to visit every month, which is still awesome! Add to all of that the fact that you’ll be getting far away from your ex and won’t have to worry about bumping into him– girl, you’d be crazy to not take this job!

KittyKatz :  I feel you….I live on the coast and love my home. Darling Husband and I did move out of state for college (me) and job (him) and then moved back after I graduated. While I would WANT to leave, there are sometimes when the benefits outweigh everything else. Personally other than the fact you love the area, there doesn’t seem to be anything tieing you down there. Your ex is an ex for a reason….put him out of your mind and do what’s best for you professionally and personally.

I’d say take the new job. More money, benefits covered, unlimited vacation? I dont know about you but I live at the beach and rarely get time to enjoy it because of work. With a higher salary and unlimited vacation days you can afford to make the move, and use the increased salary to vacation at the beach or mountains.
