I am in a new relationship with an old friend from high school, that has been in the Army for just under 2 years. I am still where we grew up in Minnesota, and he is based in Georgia right now. We have been talking a lot about me moving there so our relationship can grow (neither of us have the means to be traveling back and forth). I have some concerns, my family is here, I have a good paying job (not a career) and I have a good client list (I do hair on the side of my normal job). But, there are also some good positives to moving, I am almost 23 and never have lived away from my parents (I didn't go out of town for college), my man would be there with me, I could start over (drama free), and of course have a complete total change in scenery and in culture. He says he is willing and ready whenever I am. I just don't know if it is a good idea. I have known him for almost 6 years, but we have only been talking as "more than friends" for 3 months and have been in a relationship "officially" for just over 2 weeks. I know it would be rushing, but I also feel if I don't go our relationship won't last. Any ideas, thoughts, opinions or advice are greatly appreciated!

Catherine - sorry it took me so long to respond. My parents have been out of town and so I was busy taking care of my younger siblings and what not. Congrats on making the decision to move and actually putting it into action. My boyfriend and I have been talking a lot more about our situation and the more we talk about it the more I want to just pack up and move! I know it is still early in our relationship, but everyday he texts me in the morning basically saying he misses me and can't wait to sleep next to me. I planned another trip down there next month I leave May 18th. I don't come home until Memorial day, I will be gone for like 10 or 11 days! I miss him and my feelings for him are growing. He keeps saying he wants to get a "contract marriage" while I am there so I can move there and we can live together I would just need to get a job. I am actually considering it, but I am not sure how I would tell my family. My parents are old fashioned are don't even believe in sleeping in the same Â bed as someone unless you are married, let alone telling them I am moving across the country and got married to someone I have barely been in a relationship with.... I am not sure! I just want to be with him... He went to the beach today and was telling me how much he wishes I was there! He sent me a card the other day that was just a "I'm thinking about you" card! I just want to be there.... Any thoughts?
