Hi all,
I'm in need of advice, and I really don't have anyone else I can ask for input, so please, help me out.

I've lived with my boyfriend for 3 years, although we have know each other for 7 years. We live in Michigan, and my bf has always known I want to move to Florida. This is just how I am, I can't tolerate the cold weather, and I get depressed when it's too cold to spend time outdoors. But come spring/summer, when it's at least 60 degrees out- I'm the happiest & most active person you will ever meet. I really think I have SAD (seasonal effective disorder) - means you get depressed due to the change in seasons. In addition to that, I have an undiagnosed skin disorder- I think it is Polymorphus Light Eruption...basically, I get hives from the sun in the spring time when UV exposure increases (after being indoors all fall and winter). But, now that I've been going to the tanning salon, I can prevent these hives from occuring by increaseing my UV exposure...going tanning every few days has a "hardening" effect on the skin, when you get a base tan, and prevents me from getting hives.

So, for my health, and happiness I would like to move to Florida. The drastic change in seasons really effects my body, and I would really like to live somewhere sunny & have UV rays as a normal occurance- and not have to depend on going to a tanning salon to prevent a painful erruption of hives.

Problem is, he doesn't want to move. He is stuck on living here- and I'm sorry, but I would be much healthier & happier living down south. What do I do? I told him, in 2 years I am moveing when I finish my degree, but he insists he'll talk me out of it. At this point, I'm willing to leave, wether or not if he comes with the same time I would feel like such an as* for abandoning this relationship.....sorry for all the rambling, I just don't know what to do...
