    Welcome Morgan!

    I lived in Atlanta for 9 years and tremendously miss it. I only moved away from there 6 months ago. I completely understand your hesitation to move before you get a ring. We were already cohabiting when Jim finished his Ph.D. and started job interviews all over the place. Of course, he thought I would go with him wherever he got a job which is actually not that simple for me since I have to be relicensed in whatever state I work. I actually decided that I wouldn't move until he made a greater leap in commitment but didn't tell him that. Luckily he proposed 2 months before receiving his first real job offer so we did not have to have that conversation. So I moved across the country and still do not have new hairdresser/nail place/dentist/job/etc... Do whatever you feel is right and it'll turn out just fine :) Two years of separation is hard but maybe he'll realize how much he misses you and cough up that ring! There are tons of direct flights between ATL and Dallas.

    Anyways, you'll find tons of info on this forum. One of the things that'll help you narrow down a location is whether you want to use an AI or not.

      Hi Rachelle! I am in the Dallas area also... which is interesting because Brian is in Atlanta. He left Texas in March (had to for his job) and will be there for 2 more years. I am definitely open to moving to ATL, but only want to do so once we are engaged and I have a job there. He would love for me to just move there now, but I'm fearful of cohabiting before the ring (because then maybe it will never come?) and would be more confident in moving if I had a great job to be excited about. I LOVE Texas and have lived here all my life... grew up in Fort Worth, went to school in Austin, lived in Houston shortly after college graduation, and now back in Dallas. My family, friends, favorite resturants, malls, hairstylist, doctors... etc (all the important stuff) is here, except him!
      Hi again!
      Sounds like you're a Texas girl at heart! :-) I totally understand not wanting to make such a big move w/o being engaged. But it sounds like that's the direction you guys are headed. . .so you may want to start checking out ATL! Lol!
      You said he's there for 2 more years? Is he planning to move again after that? Back to Texas? Somewhere else?

      Keep us posted on all the engagement talk! :-)

        Welcome Morgan! Don't worry about finding a place - it'll happen! We changed our minds at least 10 times that I can think of, all different types of locations: Santa Fe, NM, Cabo, Anguilla (Cap Juluca), Las Vegas, back to Santa Fe, British Virgin Islands, back to Anguilla, Fort Worth (to make it easy!) and finally back to Cabo!

        I wish I would have found this site a long time ago, so you're already in a good position to just read and gather ideas.

        I'm in Fort Worth...so I know how you feel about Texas! My FI hates the weather (b/c he's from Albuquerque!)

          Jill & Morgan (and anyone else in the DFW area!),

          We are planning a Dallas BDW meetup here soon in the next couple of weeks. There is a thread about it under "Random Thoughts"

          We had 24 people attend our wedding in Las Caletas, Mexico on May 24th, 2009!

          We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!
