It puts a lot of timelines re: visa situations on hold (we're going to move to the States in the future) - my partner is so worries about town halls shutting down we've moved the wedding up to this Friday and we're just gonna run in there with two witnesses.
Also: sorry to hear about a lot of sad news in the last few pages - suzz especially - hang in there dude.
Sorry to hear that
Yeah me too in a way - the healthcare situation makes me scared.
Thing is, in certain cities the cost of living is still reasonable. Rent works out to be only 20-30% of salaries and property prices are still reasonable (£150k for decent flats in the equivalent of Zone 2).
...and because of that her dad has a couple of properties which we'll be able to live in for free. We'll never be able to get on the property ladder over here, will never be in a financial position to comfortably start a family. That boost will give us some breathing room.
Plus she wants to return to her home city and be near her aging parents.

This is pretty gooseberry fool mate - sorry to hear it.
Been a long time coming. Cut a long story short we got together at work, 5 years ago, since then I moved away, moved back and we live in quite a remote place. As a result of some bad luck and such I've ended up in new jobs nearly every year had no real career path, commuted nearly 90 mins away at one point. I've struggled to settle. I'm very free and easy going, my partner is more structured, & has some trust/anxiety issues that really get me down. I just feel like I want to break free most of the time, and 5 years now is a long time, but I can't see myself marrying her. I've noticed things change, and it feels I'm her world, but she's not mine if that makes sense. Just shitty, there's many faults I have don't get me wrong, but I've missed out on a lot of other opportunities living here and staying here, and I'm kinda done it feels. I love her, and care about her so much, but I think that's moved away from the other love. I dunno. My post probably makes me look like a strawberry fool as well.
Ok, don’t really think anywhere else is suitable for this as its a bit of an odd question in my opinion.
In short, is it weird to add someone you like as a friend on the old facebook despite barely knowing them?
Bit of a longer explanation now. There is a customer who I serve every so often at work (maybe once a month?), she’s always really nice, comes in with a beaming smile and we sometimes have a bit of a chat (nothing major, its quite fast paced where I work most of the time so not got time for anything major) about nothing in particular. Now it’s quite clear to me and to my coworkers that I have a bit of a crush on said person, god knows whether she can tell or not Someone I work with somehow found out her name and said I should add her (as did another mate at work), start chatting etc saying what have I got to lose and so on. However, to me this feels a little creepy as outside of where I work I’ve never seen her, wouldn’t know her name and wouldn’t be able to even think about adding her on Facebook without someone doing a bit of digging.
So creepy or not? Personally feels a little on the creepy side to me so not really planning on sending her a friend request.
