Hi bees! Question for you all that were in LDR’s and then moved to be closer to your man. Do any of your regret moving? I sure do! In my old town I had a mall, access to 2 gyms, friends to hang out with, and a pretty busy social life.
In my new town – I’m alone. My Fiance is working on the road so me being here is pretty much pointless since we don’t see each other anyway. There is literally one stop light in this town, and the closest gym is 20 miles away. The girls here are okay but they aren’t my friends – they are the wives of my FI’s friend.
I’m just really lonely and missing my town. Anyone else feeling the same way? It’s been over a year and I just don’t see it getting any better.

It gets better once you have a life where you are. It’s still hard around holidays, and sometimes you just miss your friends and your old favorite places and things to do. But there’s less of that as time goes on. Are there any things you can get involved with on your own?

Homesickness is hard, and any kind of move requires a fair amount of adjusting. It’ll get better!

Sigh .. i feel your pain … I had four malls in 40 min of me…. target and walmart right down the street … now Target is 40 min away as is the closest mall.
have you tried to do a meetup? Or how about a job? Then you could make some of your own friends. I made the mistake of thinking his mom was my mom and his brother’s wife were friends…. yeah I’m definitely looking for my own group.

I moved to my SO after almost two years apart. I didn’t really leave a bunch of people behind because I was in grad school so everyone who I was close to moved from that area anyway. When I first moved with him, I felt kinda lonely since he had friends here and I didn’t. The best thing I have been able to do is meet up with friends who I miss on weekends or traveling to see them where they live now. I wouldn’t trade living with my SO for anything but it does get lonely.
