CN: If you were planning on moving to San Francisco for no reason in particular, would you move to NYC if your FI got an awesome, well-paying job?
So, most of you ladies know that FI and I are/were planning to move to San Francisco in the fall, right before the wedding. We both have a list of jobs we're applying for, but no offers yet.
FI was just talking to a former coworker who left their firm in Chicago for another job in NYC. FI e-mailed him to see if the guy knew of any SF contacts, and the guy responded by saying "Actually, if you're interested, there's an open spot at the firm here. I talked to the boss about you, and the job is yours if you want it." FI would be making double there what he makes here, and the job would be held until we were to move out there. It sounds a lot like where he's working now, except that people actually go home at 6 PM instead of 10 PM, as is the case now.
I'm kind of overwhelmed, but a part of me is going "Why not?" The only reason we'd chosen San Francisco is because we both like the city and have some friends out there. FI was very clear that he was fine with either city, so SF is still an option.
What do you guys think? Is this something you'd consider? Obviously FI and I will talk it over and decide what's right for us, but I'd love to get an outside perspective who's not my mom (who would freak out) or MOH (who would also probably freak out).
