There's a lot of pros and cons to this Pros: -get the adventure of experiencing another state -meeting new people, new sights, new yummy restaurants -a refreshing start(usually?) -usually moved to another state for a good reason, so it's usually got other pros like being cheaper or the job relocation offers better pay
Cons: -it will be hard adjusting if family isn't nearby -different laws, need a new license, blahblahblah lots of paperwork -If something bad happens such as getting laid off of work it will be difficult to pick back up and with a snap of a finger get a new job
Though the most important thing is to go with what is really nagging your thoughts and pulling on your heartstrings so you aren't left with saying "What if," I guess is the best advice to give ^^
I would move away to another state to get away from someone...but to be with another person? I highly doubt that I would. Obviously you are asking if you would move- what about the other person? Did they ask themselves the same question and answer no? That statement to me means...yes they like you but not enough to start anew.
One thing to note is relationships build over large distances can tend to be a bit eye-opening. You find out that the person you fancied might not be everything you imagined. It is a road and a lesson but it is also something to not take lightly.
A relationship is a series of compromises.
No risk no venture and consequently no gain. Take the risk? Could end up being the best decision of your life or it could not. It is really up to you in the end to make of it what you will. However if you go there thinking it is going to fail...it will. Your mentality already made that decision for you.
Really take a deep look at yourself at the person you will move state lines and ask? Are you willing to risk your current lifestyle? Your future? if you had already planned everything out within this state.
(My example would be my BA in Business Administration and Economics. Double major. Followed promptly by a master's in Business Finance and later a PHD in Financial Engineering. Get my bachelors... move and live in Florida till I get my residency and apply for school there for masters and PHD. Finish contractual work and move to New York to hopefully get a job at Wall Street. I planned it out. I have several contingency plans as well... when I weigh a decision, I weigh it against just that; My future. Considering I am at the Top of my Class, I am obviously working diligently at my pursuits in the academic world. If I will diverge from this particular path the girl better be worth it. But given my fear of commitment, the statistics on divorce rate and my personality...my answer would be a resourceful "no."
But this is coming from a jaded, cynical and realistic twenty-one year old who gets compared to someone in his forties-to-sixties by friends.
Whatever you decide to do or not do be sure it is what you want and not someone else.
