I know this was posted a while ago, but I have to thank you all so much for your thoughtful replies. It has really helped me a LOT. The Chi job fell through last winter and in reality I was relieved, I wasn't quite ready to leave DC yet. But now that I've had another summer here, I'm feeling ready. The doubts have grown fewer and fewer and I will begin my job search anew with hopes of moving to Chicago by Spring 2014! Nothing ventured, nothing gained!

Try to visit Chicago one more time. Then make your decision. It is hard to take a leap of faith. But you presented some good arguments for moving. You didn't present very good ones for staying.

Count me as another fan of Chicago (the city). Never lived there, but I've visited many times, & always had a great time there. It seems to have everything, from great pizza, hot-dog joints, to fine dining, etc. etc. Sports. The art institute of chicago--one of the world's great art museums--I think it easily rivals the Metropolitan in NYC. And a kind of funky, raw energy. And the lake.

Truly a unique city. Be prepared to freeze half to death in Winter tho.......but I wouldn't let that hold you back....
