"Wow!  You hit the nail right on the head with your words about the dating scene here.  For some reason I thought it might be easier for NYers who were born and raised in NYC.  I agree with you.  No one tries to work anything out…"

"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…"

"I sent you a friend request so we could message each other vs. do comments here on your blog, but I'll say a few things.  First, it seems like you really get the fact that you have a good situation.  So many people I meet in…"

"I've always wanted to go to Austraila.  Never been there but it seems like it's a great place.  I'm rooting for you to go.  Why I returned to NYC - I almost didn't.  I almost went to LA instead, where I had…"

"Hi, I know this is a late comment to your blog post but it is totally doable to move out of the country and live somewhere else.  I lived in South America (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil & Cusco, Peru) for a year at age 40.  I planned for…"

CMH replied to Anna's discussion Leaving NYC for Love
"I read this article in the NY post and I totally agree with it as well as the comment from Maggie.  I think dating here is more challening then anwhere else.  For people who want to have a casual affair, there's more…"

"Hi Anna, Yes, I know Cathy.  She's cool.  She was my advisor for a year.  I know she has a daughter that lived (or lives) in Asheville.  She retired from UNC about 5 years ago, I think.  (I accidentally sent you a…"

"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."

CMH commented on CMH's blog post To Stay or Go?
"Hi Anna, I lived in Chapel Hill, NC for 4.5 years while getting my master's degree in occupational therapy.  Back in 1998, I lived in Asheville for 3 months when I did my first clinical.  The clinical did not go well and caused a lot…"

Anna commented on CMH's blog post To Stay or Go?
"What brought you to Asheville? Also, I'm curious - how is it that you keep getting to live in a variety of places for 6 months to a year? Sounds like a fun lifestyle! Does your career move you around?"

CMH commented on CMH's blog post To Stay or Go?
"I love South America too.  I'll do another blog in the next few days.  Just didn't want to write a lot all at once.  Staying or leaving a city like NYC is complicated after you've been here a long time."

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…

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.
