Like many people have already said, what have you got to lose? Even if the worst happened and things didn't work out, you could move back to Hemel and pick things up from there again. As far as I know you don't have any major ties to hold you back apart from that you'll miss you're friends and family, but how cheap and frequent are U2
flights to LTN
, especially on staff travel rates?!
I made a similar choice myself a couple of years ago, left a very secure job with a company I had worked with for 13 years and moved 80 miles to unglamourous Hull to move in with my then other half. Even though things didn't work out and I moved back West again, I have never regretted for a second making that change. So much excitement, it's like a big adventure! Even when I moved back, I have been through so many new experiences and met so many fantastic people due to new work situations, that the repercussions of that decision just keep on happening to this day.
What's the worst that can happen?
If you are still unsure, maybe you could take a bit of time off work before deciding what to do and go over to Belfast for a week or two. You'll probably have a much better idea then.
Like a fine wine, one gets better with age.
