Moving and relationshipsWatch
Been with my partner for 4 years and we’re from different cities. I really would like to be near my family in Birmingham. He loves London and wants to be there. We lived in ‘my’ city for a while, he has some family there, I have none in London. Ended up moving to London majority due to the fact that he’s been saying he wants to be here and that there’s opportunities here for us both. I’ve been here for a few weeks and seriously don’t like it, I’m really home sick and miss my family. Don’t have anyone here, work is hectic, life here is so expensive it seems a no brainer to want to be back to what I know. I can get a transfer back to Birmingham and can work from there. I’ve mentioned I’d like to be here for no longer than 1.5 years but it doesn’t go down well when the subject is introduced. Every time I bring it up he seems to get in a mood, either walks out or finds an excuse for why it’s better in London or how there’s so much more opportunity here as opposed to Birmingham. I obviously don’t agree and I know housing and everything else is more affordable, things can be done quicker too. It’s really tough and it’s having an impact on my MH, any advice?
