If you were halfway young and single with no kids, what would motivate you to move to another city?

Relocation rocks. And if I were moving closer to the Chiefs, that would be excuse enough.

I want to move north to escape the heat.

You also have to consider economic advantages,the job
market,social avenues,and real estate values.


Oh,and Zombies...that would be my prime motivation
for moving.You can't rule that out of your equation.

I think that's it for me. Its just time for a change. There's no way I could be ready to move anywhere by the time my lease is up, but I should be able to prepare myself in a year.

Knowing that a different area had more to offer me more than my current. If you're thinking about change there is prolly a reason for it. Can always come back.

I was just asking because a move from Springfield to KC is not that big.

Springfield to NYC is another thing.

Yes. Born and raised here. Trust me. KC may only be 2.5-3 hours away, but it's a different world compared to here.

Just be honest with yourself.

What is it that makes you want to move and what will
make you happy somewhere else.

Personally,I love Washington D.C.
I have mulled over many a time relocating there.

Then i ask myself,could i live here?Or is it just a nice place to visit?

I have nothing holding me here. The only exception would be that I've been at my job long enough that I'm making decent money, and it's a pretty specific field. Finding a job elsewhere would prove difficult. Other than that, why not try it?

Money is a shackle.

If your line of work is that specific,I don't see why that same job
wouldn't produce more options for employment in a larger field of play.

Make "Danger" your middle name.Make discovery a part of your life.

Or stay safe and stagnate in Springfield.

Just be sure that you have a list of reasons to leave that aren't "because *surely* the grass is greener over there".

Really, you just need to come up with a plan, a to-do list, and start executing it.

1. Find a job in XXXXX
2. Find a place to live in XXXXX
3.....

Don't worry about your lease in Springfield. Every lease I've ever read has an escape clause if your place of work suddenly comes more than X miles from your last.

If I were single with no kids, i think those three things would help me make a decision. Where would I best advance in my field? Where would I feel the most support?

Find a place you love - just make sure it isn't just a nice vacation spot. My wife and I honeymooned in the SF Bay area and loved it. I took a job out there right after we got back. We hated living there and moved 18 months later. Can't imagine leaving Colorado, but did it once before because my company closed and there were no opportunities in my profession.

I was born and raised in Springfield, Mo also. When I was 18 on a whim and because someone said there are jobs in New Orleans I moved there. I ended up working offshore in the gulf of Mexico on oil rigs and traveled all over the south and the caribbean.

After about 6-7 years of that I traveled all over the world. I would move and or travel at the suggestion of someone just for the experience. Some didn't work out, Some almost got me killed and some created moments to cherish.

Life ain't no damn dress rehersal, You only get one chance at this. Don't cheat yourself.

I'm with ya on that one. Golf all year. Of course, I wouldn't be able to afford to golf.

But, with 4 kids. I'm not moving anytime soon - unless job takes me somewhere else which isn't likely since I own my business.

My wife got a job offer for big bucks from a company in San Diego 11 years ago. When she asked me if I was willing to leave KC and my stressful going-no-where job and move, I said hell yes. The hardest part was giving up my Chiefs season tickets.

...for career advancement

...for travel opportunities (if you like to travel).
...to make new friends and get reacquainted with old friends that have relocated.
...for a clean slate
...for change just for change's sake.

I have to agree with ChiTown on this.

18-25 my life decisions were based solely on the odds of getting laid.

I'd like to think that if I went back knowing what I know now that it'd be different but who am I kidding? I'd just use that knowledge to increase the odds.



That said I've quickly reviewed the rest of my life and have constructed my first draft of the rest of my life.


26-34 saw all decisions based upon the odds of shutting up my wife.

35- current sees all decisions aimed toward making my wife's friends believe that I'm a "good guy". That will be used for the 40-45 time frame which will consist of having sex with her friends.

46-50 will be convincing my wife that it really was a mid-life crisis that forced me to have sex with all her friends and finding a doctor that will back up the "chemical imbalance" excuse.

51 on I figure I'll just go fishing and reminisce.

Yep. With a remote 4 being Chiefs. :D

Even now, my wife and I are remotely considering the possibility of moving back to Kansas at some point in our lives. But right now, the rankings draw us to Denver.

1. Friends - all in Kansas
2. Family - split (mine in Kansas, hers in Denver)
3. Career - currently in Denver
4. Chiefs - in Kansas (sorta)

Let me come back with a bit more serious post here.

If I were single with no significant other to consider I would make experience more my top priority with money being secondary. You don't have to make a fortune to live when you're single. I wouldn't dump a 50k/yr job for a 25k/yr job just because I've never lived there but I would be more open to the idea of making less to live someplace I thought might be nice.

Between 18-25, my dick was my guide. If the light was red, but my dick said go, I went. I was childish, had lots of disposable income after the age of 23, and was living a lifestyle in Lincoln Park (Chicago) that I'm not exceptionally proud of today. It is what it is, it was what it was, and I've come out of it a better man today.

Relative to the question, I say move around. Try new things, challenge what you think you know and have fun. As I can attest to, you are only young once. There are no do-overs with time.

luv, I don't know what you do for your career, but one thing you can do - if you are not sure about moving - is find a job that requires a lot of travel.

My job requires a lot of travel so although I live in crappy STL, I get to visit places all over and stay there for weeks at a time. It's enough to keep things interesting.

Money is my motivator...but you also have to see how much more you'll be paying to live there.

I made the move from Tucson AZ to Northern California because the money was a hell of a lot better. I didn't really figure in that I went from paying $600 a month rent to a $1000 a month.
