To Stay or Go?

Hello New Yorkers & Ex-New Yorkers,

I'm glad to have this opportunity to blog about this topic. It's been on my mind for a while now and I'm grateful to have found this site. Any comments are welcome.

I've lived in New York for almost 11 years. Out of the 11 years, two of the years I've lived elsewhere - a year in South America in 2008/09 and a year in LA in 2003/04. I've always returned to NYC but now I'm thinking of leaving for good.

There are some wonderful things…

Hey there, I saw in your post that you went to Chapel Hill for OT - any chance you knew Cathy Nielson? She was an OT professor there.

Yeah, she lives in Asheville now, too - she's my coworker! Shall I tell her hello for you?

I read your post, and I understand completely how you feel.  I've been divorced since 2009 (married for 12 years) and have only dated one guy since that time and very briefly.  For some reason, I find the dating scene in NY to be very superficial - sort of like "there's a lot of desperate fish in the sea so if something goes wrong, there's always tons of other people to choose from".   With this mentality, people are not willing to work when even the simplest of problems come up.  This is why I have stopped dating, personally, I don't find it worth it, but that's just me.
