I am so sorry. I moved a year ago and I am still in the same state but I get so homesick sometimes I could die. It is so natural for you to miss your wonderful family. Big hugs!

I’m having a hard time finding sympathy because when I moved away from Texas, I was like “Thank god I don’t live in Texas anymore!!!!” haha. I think you should look at it as an adventure. Get on meetup.com and start meeting people. Do walking tours. Use your weekends to do weekend trips away. Explore explore explore.

I think being away from family can be really freeing and amazing – it’ll open up a whole new world for you!

I moved far away and while I do miss my family at times, I talk to my mom a lot still and I planned to always come back home for Thanksgiving the only time I get to see both sides of my family.  I went last year and I just booked my ticket for this year a few days ago.

I miss my family at holidays and my birthday especially mom always made me cake and nachos, but I’ve gained a family here, my Fiance and our two dogs.  And that is a nice thing too. 🙂

Aww I’m sorry you’re sad 🙁

Imoved to Chicago about 4 years ago and fell in love almost immediately. Hopefully your Fiance has plenty of friends and you can get to know them.

I know how you feel, only I moved to Cleveland not Chicago to be with my Fh. I get super homesick at times and every time I cross the Ohio line coming back here I cry.

Anyway, bes tthing you can do is plan to make trips back to Texas  on a regular basis, I’d try e every two months or so, for at least a weekend. Make regular calls to your friends and family, maybe weekly. Maybe they can use skype or facetime to talk to you on the weekends. it sounds like alot but it helsp knowing you will see your family on a regular basis and canlook forward to it.

Honestly my big lofesaver has been facebook! it helps me feel connected (even in little ways like seeing my nephew’s halloween costume though i’m not there for halloween).
