We moved to Nampa, ID and only after we moved here did we realize that political and religious affiliations can impact your much more than you think. We are now just trying to make the best of it.

If I read this post correctly, you and your partner are going to stay in ID although you feel it may have been a mistake because of differences in political and religious affiliations.

Do you think you'll stay forever, or are you just giving it more time. Curious of course not trying to be invasive in asking too many personal questions.

Thanks.

Sorry to hear that and hope your make a good adjustment.

I posted earlier that my choice didn't work for me and I left. I haven't found an alternative and feel a little at sea.

Thanks for your honest response.

I think the whole country is falling apart, we may all need to just stay where we are for abit, and then maybe things will improve and we can all decide with more ease as to what to do. It seems alot of us are a little stuck, or a little at sea. Im not completely sure alot of our indecision is coming completely from within us, some yes but not all. I think the country has a feeling of being in a depressed mood and it is affecting all of our lives in some manner. When you think of it so many of us are asking is this place liberal or is this place conservative. Is it cost effective more there than where we are now. Are there part time jobs for the over 50 crowd, or will we compete with zillions of students for a job at Taco Bell, if that is the only job in town. No wonder we can't decide. For those of us with so much indecision, lets just stay where we are for now, or we could make things worse for ourselves.

Attleboro? Holy smoke! I used to live in Plainville! We might have been almost neighbors.

I think you're very right. I'm always in a rush when I make up my mind to do something but when it comes to moving 1,000 miles away, I must take it slowly. The grass isn't always greener on the other side, but I'm willing to bet it's a lot greener in VA year round than in TX.

For me, moving alone to another state is a bit scary but if all turns out well in my search, I'm willing to try it before I get too old.

We left s. Ca for n. Ca many years ago and got stuck for 15 years. Our realtor sold us a place in the pines right next to a meth lab and in the middle of a neighborhood of drug users. We lost 20K on that place and it took us 5 years to sell it. We were more careful when searching for our next place and after much research and visits came to AZ two years ago. We love it here. I guess I really missed sidewalks. We all make mistakes, we should just try to learn from them.
