Am I too old to take a risk for love?



I'm 30. No kids. I have great job experience and a good education. I believe I could get a new job pretty easily. I am thinking of moving to a new state to be with the guy I love (we have known each other for ten years btw, so I know he is legit). But would have to leave a great job here to do it. Am I tooo old to take a risk like this?

What does he say about it? It has to be more than just your idea. I wouldn't pick up my successful life and move it to another state unless he's talking marriage and everything that goes with it.

He says he loves me, is talking marriage and kids. But I'm still scared that if it didnt work i'd be devastated.
Think about it. In order to win at anything you have to be willing to risk losing. Nobody here can make that decision for you. You have to weigh the chances of winning against the chances of losing then make a decision and move on.

I think 30 is far from too old.

Be sure that everything about the move makes sense for you, not just the guy part. Do you like the town better? Can you turn this into a positive career move? Are enough of the things you like to do easily accessible in this town? Can you find enough like-minded people so your bf isn't your entire social circle?

Be sure you understand why he isn't making the move, and make sure you're ok with that reason. If you're the only one willing to take big risks for the sake of the relationship, then that should tell you something.
