We are currently in a relationship 4,357 miles away from one another, but that's not enough to keep us apart.. We use this blog together, and share our experiences, while sharing others experiences. We love to give out advice and are only a few mouse clicks away. Stay strong and fight the distance.

I have said this before and I will say it again.

Your relationship is not a charity. You willingly put yourself in this situation and I am appalled when people go around asking others for money. Liam and I have money problems of our own, despite closing the distance. So if you ask me for money you aren’t going to like my answer.

Hi guys, I know money is a personal thing so I understand if you don't want to answer. I'm just planning to close the distance, moving UK to US and I was wondering how much money Liam thought was a good amount to have saved so that you can get by the first few months of being there until jobs are all sorted out. I was thinking £5000 but I don't know if I'm being a bit naive?

Firstly, let me say the first “few months” will most likely be 6 months realistically, maybe 4 if you get lucky. With that in mind, and from my experience I’d say that 5 grand won’t be enough to cover everything. I set myself a 10,000 pound minimum and I saved considerably more than that in the end, but I have barely any savings left now. Once you factor in the future immigration costs, paying for a wedding, paying rent and bills, getting a car, buying groceries etc etc. It all adds up really fast, it took me by surprise how fast the money drained to be honest. I think if you have 10,000 pounds and you live with your other half’s parents rent free, have the wedding pretty much paid for and you don’t need a car; you could keep yourself going until you get your work permit and a job. Although also bare in mind that just because you get a work permit, doesn’t mean you will get a job at that point too. I know all this sounds really pessimistic, but I won’t lie about the realities of moving to America, it’s not cheap at all. So yeah, aim for 10,000 minimum, but be prepared to live conservatively for a while on that money. Best of luck to you when you move though, I hope it all goes well! It’s all worth it in the end.

Liam, can you help me out. Before moving to FL, were you super duper sad? Did you at all doubt what you were doing. I'm in this situation right now and don't know what to do 😔

I did get sad yeah. I was leaving my life in England which was incredibly hard. It was, and probably always will be one of, if not the hardest thing I’ve done. I didn’t doubt things though per say. I would sometimes think of what if’s, but never full blown doubts. I think you have to come to terms with what you are doing and the realities of the situation before you decide to go through with it. Best of luck!
