I’ve been wanting to move to a new city, but everything with my job is good. I’ve gotten promoted twice in the last year, get paid well, good wlb, and pretty stable. I live in Orange County, and my dating life is kinda nonexistent since coming out about a year ago, and my friends are all getting married and in a different phase of life. I’d like to be a decent sized city, but not sure if the change is worth giving up what I got. Curious if anyones been in the same sitch and how things worked out

To add, I’ve been in oc my whole life. I’m 27 and have been hoping for a while that an opportunity in a different state/city would come to me, but it doesn’t seem like that’s happening

Are you happy?

I feel like I teeter a bit, happy with my work but not super happy with my social life
