Kim’s man can’t leave the east coast — so should she give up her life back west to be with him?

Kim Kardashian is a torn woman when it comes to making one gigantic life decision. Should she stay in the California sunshine to be near her family or take a leap of faith and move east to be closer to boyfriend Kris Humphries? Tick tock, Kim…the clock is ticking!

I will say this: if Kim opts to move to New York City for Kris, she better make damn sure that he’s ‘the one.’ Sure, she can work anywhere (although this season of Kourtney & Kim Take New York does force her to be in the Big Apple). Yes, she can shop anywhere. But can she leave behind the place where she grew up and the people that love her the best?

In Kim’s case, I’d have to stay she should stay in LA. The 30-year-old reality star is so close to mom Kris, brother Rob and sisters Khloe, Kourtney, Kylie and Kendall that a piece of her would always feel missing if they weren’t constantly around. Living in NYC temporarily while shooting a show and moving there for good are two very different things. She would be making Manhattan her base, and choosing a boyfriend over family.

Quite honestly, Kris may not be the one. Although Kim seems happy enough with him, this isn’t something we haven’t seen before. She was just as elated to be with New Orleans Saints star Reggie Bush or Dallas Cowboys player Miles Austin. Until Kim stops dating 26-year-old athletes, I don’t believe she’s mature enough to commit herself to a cross-country move.

But should you ever move for love? That remains to be seen. I’d be more inclined to say that if you’ve been with the person for a lengthy period of time and one of you happens to get work in a different state that moving would be an option. But if you’ve known someone for a nanosecond and are living some romantic fantasy where you give up everything to be with him….I say heck no! Stay where you are!

The reality is that moving is a commitment and relying on only your man to make you happy is going to harm your relationship. So think long and hard before you take a leap of faith. You don’t want to end up hating the place that you left because you’re returning a broken woman. Know what I’m saying?
