    you're funny, all of you icon_smile.gif

    I feel like a stranger here, and i am one. i never had this issue, but the other day i noticed my class includes 60% lighter student and 40% darker, and me. I am like do not exist. I have very black hair on a light skin. i don't belong to any group here here, i feel. while back in Turkey, people looked like me, maybe a bit lighter or darker. I know this is stupid, but this one is one of the reasons that make me feel homesick. i miss my people icon_sad.gif

    another reason is that i couldn't relate to guys here. i had some dates and encounters, and they all failed. the last time i "touched" a guy was 7 months ago. i do miss kissing touchings, and i do find guys here handsome. but, again i miss my Turkish men icon_sad.gif . and i find it a bit strange using a different language while making love, other than Turkish. Plus, i am very Furry, it doesn't bother me but it seems guys here are not that much into it. "you are cute but you need to shave" I got these words from a few guys. this is why i deleted my profiles everywhere.

    good thing school keeps me occupied and sometimes so busy that i don't have time to eat.
    although i am an ardent atheist(according to OkCupid), i can't believe i even miss seeing mosques icon_sad.gif

    I used to feel a bit like this back when I lived in Japan. I felt like an alien and I missed France a lot. What helped me was to have a lot of other foreigner friends. Even if they were not from the same country as me, their experience was similar to mine. We could sometimes talk about our countries, express what we miss, etc.
    Don'tlet this ruin you experience abroad! You may regret it when you come back to Turkey.

    Any groups nearby that might have Turkish men that you might get to know? Even if it was just for social gatherings, not sexual, you meet one guy and they introduce you to another and so on and who knows, perhaps you'll find someone that has more of an interest in you.

    If you can't catch fish in the pond your fishing in, try another pond.

    I get homesick and my family is only an hour away, I can't imagine thousands of miles. Do stuff that you did at home

    Just saw my parents last week for the first time in nearly half a year. Living literally an ocean away is really hard sometimes.

    As much as I love my family, I wouldn't like to live an hour away from their house.
    I have been living away from my family when I was 16 years old and quite far from their house. Never really felt homesick.

    Making friends is easier said than done; but having them helps you build a sense of home in the new place you are. It sucks, trust me b/c I've done it so many times, but you have to put yourself out there a little bit. You'll be glad you did once you have people to hang out with and trust.

    *hugs.

    definitely not easy! I think it's important to have a support system of friends and family (especially ones nearby) but to have no one to lean on can leave you feeling homesick. I agree, you have to really work to put yourself out there a little bit.

    An hour is close but you have to remember I'm still in school. Most likely in 2 months that distance will be hundreds or thousands of miles.

    You say that now but the older you get the closer you want to be to your parents.

    Being homesick just sucks! When I get homesick I just go to my mama's. I jump on her couch put my feet on the living room table(she'll scream at me until I remove them) eat some of her delicious food, drink some homemade ice tea and just go back home. (Usually I do that 3-4 times each week) That is enough to get me back on my feet.

    In my case that isn't the case. The only thing that will make me to be close to family would by my obligation that as their son I have certain kind of duty. The kind of affection that I am looking for isn't something my parents can provide me. Hence as I will get old I would look more towards finding a life partner than wanting to be closer to them.

    Homesickness will go away. :-) It won't stick around forever, but, it might just be like that smelly houseguest that just won't go away -- overstaying it's welcome.

    In the mean time, don't let your homesickness prevent you from trying to find out what people who live in the area you visit do to recreate or to do for (good, clean) fun.

    You could also look for "fun" too icon_razz.gif

    Mmmmmmmmmm! Hairy foreign guy! Tell you what: come over to my house tonight. I'll be wearing nothing but oily leather pants. We can wrestle a while and then I'll make you forget all about Turkey. And you can use any language you want when we hit the mattress. Afterwards we can drive a couple miles outside of town and I'll show you our local mosque.
