@roweboat:  Hopefully working will get you feeling better and making friends.  I’ve never moved too far from home, don’t think I could *hugs!*

From another Michigander, get out there and explore your new area with DH!

@roweboat:  I think as you say, when you get a job and possibly start volunteering and taking some classes, you will meet people.

I am assuming you’re not religious… I’ve heard churches can be a great way to get into a new community.

Just know that what you’re feeling is totally normal. Some people handle change better than others. 2 months is not a long time. Hell, it took me a full year to feel settled in my new place when I moved out of my mom’s… and I just moved a 30 min drive from her!

I found that putting up nice pictures (artwork, family photos etc.) helped the place feel more homey. And lots of cozy throw blankets. And getting my cat lol.

Do you Skype? I know it’s not the same, but seeing peoples’ faces can help a lot.

We were exactly the same, got married and then moved across the country a month later.  It was really hard until I started going to school and working to meet people.  It’s been about 3.5 years and honestly it still doesn’t really feel like home here.  I miss our families.

We moved from KS to AK and I know how you’re feeling.

Even after 9 months here, it doesn’t feel like “home.” It’s been hard to meet good people, even though we both work full time.

Take some time and decorate your new house and get everything in its place. 

As for being bored at home, start up a new project, work out more, there’s lots to do that you will miss once you’re busy again!

I’m sure that you’ll be just fine! 🙂

My ex used to be transferred by his employer every year. It’s up tp you to make the first move. You are the one who needs new friends. The people there already have friends.

It will be hard right now at holiday time, but don’t hold back. Invite a couple from work over for coffee. Don’t do dinner invitations at first, till you see how you get along.

There are some things you can do at this time of year. Get yourself out the door- take a class, volunteer at something- go visit seniors in care homes, offer to wrap packages for a charity etc etc. You never know who yoou will meet.
