I need to move to LA in March, but do you want to get a drink?

I've been very busy with a work-at-home project for the past 4 months and I'd like to get out of the house. I'm in Minneapolis but moving to California mid March. A number of women have contacted me on OK Cupid over the past week. They seem great, and I would like to ask them out to dinner or a drink. I do want to maximize my chance of going out, but also feel like springing that info mid-date will ruin the vibe. Should I tell them I am moving before meeting up in person?

When I lived in NYC, women were interested in very casual dating, just to get out of the house, with no expectations. In Minnesota it seems like asking someone out on a date is a bit more of a loaded proposition. I have this assumption that if I say I am leaving town, I will automatically not be going out, whereas in NYC I wouldn't have worried about it. This could be all in my head, or from spending too much time with my bad rom-com obsessed female relatives.
