I'M MOVING OVERSEAS FOR LOVE
Are you moving overseas for love? Not to Italy, France or any other country where the wine, coffee and comforts of home abound, mind you. But to a far-flung, exotic locale where the local customs, cuisine and mores differ vastly from your own. Has the love of your life just gotten a job offer abroad that's too good to pass up? Did you fall in love with a local while backpacking across Asia and are now moving there to join him or her? Did a semester-abroad fling turn into true love and now you're packing your bags?
Will your relationship survive the trials of your partner heading off to work or school each day while you struggle to navigate the most basic of daily rituals? Are you worried about missing your family and friends and suffering from homesickness, loneliness and culture shock as you move overseas for love?
