Falling in love with a new city is very different than falling in love with a human being. Everything about the city excites you at first, as you explore it and learn the hot spots, the streets to avoid, the best places to eat and socialize.
The cities cannot speak and you must study them slowly. The beauty of this is in the neverending discoveries. You will memorize the streets, the storefronts, the bartender at your favorite bar. The turns you missed a dozen times you’ll take without a second thought while retelling a story and laughing with new friends.
You’ll become a tour guide when family and friends come to visit and meet your new city.
And then there will times that will make you question your love; a bad night out, or a failed relationship. At some point, as with everything, this city will disappoint you. The disappointment may drive you to look for a new landing spot, a new place to start over.
