    This relationship is doomed pal. Make the move. There will be other ladies in your life but you will never get your time back to do what you want, which is move to Ibiza.
    You shouldn't have to convince someone else, especially not for 4 years. This is your dream, not hers.
    Trust me, I was in a similar situation. I waited too long though, until kids were involved. Now theres no chance of me moving permanently and leaving my kids behind. I couldn't do that. Doesn't stop me mentally torturing myself over the whole thing though. Its not all about me anymore but it is still all about you. So do it!!! I can't stand by here and watch another woman wreck another mans Ibiza dreams.
    The time is now friend
    Be who you need to be

    Haha thanks for your concern. It has always been that I'd never move without her. But I'm getting more and more bored with the life in UK. Do you think I could go over start of season. Find a restaurant/bar that's open all year and potentially be kept on? Obviously I know it will be part time in winter. I've been mulling over going before season next year. Thus giving me enough time to save more/learn Spanish/take my driving test. I obviously care for my woman but I fear if I don't do something soon and before I know it I'll be middle aged and bitter against her and the world cause I never grew the balls to take the leap. How old are your kids? Could you not take them with you?

    Im no longer with the mother so I can't take them away from her. Just do it mate because you will end up bitter at her, even though its not her fault. She isnt stopping you from moving to Ibiza, you are!!
    In terms of advice for when to go, what jobs would be available, i'm sure there are many on here more qualified in that department to help you out.
    If it was me. I would be heading over around mid November with a nice savings pot to last me through the winter without work. That should give you plenty of time to get to know the island and its permanent residents who may be able to help you out and put you in touch with the right people in terms of work. You'll also be there as pre season builds and be in the know of jobs coming up before places start hiring officially.

    Don't spend your life wondering, what if?
    You've only got one so make the most of it. If it doesn't work out, well at least you know you tried and it wasn't ment to be. But if you really want it to work then you'll make it work

    Learning Spanish is a big part of settling into life in Ibiza so would definitely recommend getting a head start in that before going over, will be a big help in getting a job.
