I can relate to how miserable you must feel at the moment. The sudden change must be the hardest part. I’m sure it will pass as you start to build a new life and make new acquaintances. Your friends will stay friends and family will stay family. And who knows, maybe the opportunity to live in the same neighborhood will come up in the future!

I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about situations like yours- because that is what I will most likely face next year. After finishing school, FI and I plan to get married and live together. For me that means moving across an ocean. I’m okay with the being apart from family because I have lots of family in the US, but I’m worried about leaving my friends. They’re such a big part of my life, and after I move to the US at first FI will be the only person I really know. I hope this won’t strain our relationship.

I know exactly how you feel! After a LDR with my DH we finally moved in together in a new town 20 hours away from our home town. I’m not going to lie, it’s hard!

I’ve kept myself busy with our pets and working out at the gym, but sometimes I get tearful thinking about all of the things you have just said. It’s just not the same trying to make new friends 🙁

I just stay as positive as I can. Lately I have tried joining some classes at the gym so that I can make some new yoga friends or girlfriends to go jogging with on the weekends. If you stay positive about it all, you can really make it work!

Good luck 🙂 Keep your head up!
