    Sooo…. I was in a long distance relationship for a while and we eventually got married. I moved abroad to be with him and I’m here for 6 months now. Things are going good in our marriage but I feel so homesick and just wish I could go back home. I don’t feel happy here and wonder if it will ever change. I don’t know what to do because obviously I love him and I don’t want to leave him, but I just don’t know how long I’ll be able to live here. He can’t really move to my country as he runs a business here. I know you can’t tell me what to do, but maybe any of you have been in a similar situation or have a good advice? Would appreciate it.

    What is hindering you from getting out & making friends?

    Mira, I have been a bit in the similar situation – well, not exactly, but I almost moved to another country for a man. Looking back for that time now, I sometimes ask from myself, would I have been happy if I would have done it? I don’t know. And this is the country which I love and am passionate about and keep returning for holidays every time I have a chance. But living in another country is always difficult, even if you love the country, but especially if you don’t have that special bond with that. Nothing to do, just accept that your destiny has given you two countries. Learn language, make new friends, fall in love into the new country… accept that missing your home country will always be there. Look the positive sides – you have great man in your life and perhaps your life is much more interesting when you can be part of new culture.

    @Raven: yes I can do that but it’s not only friends and family that I miss. It’s also all the familiarities and the lifestyle of my home country… and I won’t find this here.

    @cat: yeah it is definitely a big change and it’s not easy. I see what you’re saying and you’re probably right. It brings something more in your life and is a great experience. I just wonder if I’ll ever be able to feel positive about it. I really feel like my life is home.

    Thanks for the advice :)
