You found the right bowl lol

I'd say - can you transfer internally? Or are you seeking to relocate externally? Also, what are your reasons for the city not working? Maybe it needs time for you to adjust and meet people, get comfortable, etc. I'd give it at least 9 months - surely you won't miss anything monumental at that point. Plus thaf puts you right around the holidays. If you are still unhappy, then pack it up and move again.

Hmm my bf doesn't like the city, so it's matter of breaking up 4 yrs of relationship or changing, though I did ask for working from home remotely, as no chance of internal transfer. Also it may affect my career advancement if working remotely unless the firm is open for me to expand business locally...
