    i have been on a cliff here lately on whether or not i should move to my dads for a semester, if i move there i can graduate highschool on time and start college and applying for fire dept jobs. id live in High Point and would go to the school my dad teaches at for 2 classes per day for one semester and start college english and history to make up for the other two classes of the day

    if i stay here i keep recently found friends and i wont hurt someone pretty close to me by being with them for a few months just to move away (havent told her yet :-/) i want to move and get a jump start with my life rather than be a senior twice (my current public school doesnt compensate credits for me being in private school and not having block schedule) but yet i dont want anyone to be hurt or sad, so i need yall to throw me over the cliff (not literally please)

    You have your whole life to meet and make friends and have relationships. Concentrate on school and get that taken care of. Just my $.02.

    how old are u? and seeing as you were only together for a few months will make it a lot easier than if you stayed with her and living there for a while longer and figured out u need to move to do your thing anyways

    meet someone where you plan to stay, graduate and start with a new FD IMO

    17 not old at all, thats why ive been having trouble deciding, ive been thinking about it alot and want to move but just didnt want to hurt or lose anybody in the process of leaving...but it also boils down to the concept of young, dumb and full of cum that im trying to overthrow

    i vote get moving on life -- college and jobs. that's one thing i hear over and over from people older than me who chose not to is that they wish they could have a do-over and get college out of the way fast. it sets you up for success later on!

    Move and go for it. I had a major life decision similar to yours some years ago, decided to go for it...quit my job, dumped my gf and told my family I was moving all within a week. It was the best decision I ever made.....the career jump start was well worth it. I've since gotten a job which pays for me to travel the world, I get paid good money and I get to get as dirty as I want.

    Do it...you won't look back, guaranteed.

    like he said..

    friends will still be friends. there not gonna hate you cuz you move.. yeah they will be sad your going but they will accept it. and also it sounds harsh but tell the gf your leaving (if you do), and play the feild a bit. dont gotta be a man whore now and screwing everything that has vag, but search around and find what you really like in a woman.

    See build thread.
    Move. I don't know how many times I was yanked back and forth from the bay area to southern arizona because of custody battles. Glad it all happened though because I have a bunch of best friends in both states. Also, I wouldn't have landed my dream job as a fireman at the age of 19 if I just stayed in Northern California.

    Everything happens for a reason dude.

    Don't make any plans based on a high school girlfriend. 5 years from now (or less) you'll regret it.
