Isn't that called Paris Syndrome? I'm pretty sure there is a phrase for it that's similar to Stockholm Syndrome.
I believe paris syndrome is something people get, when they visit a county and it doesn't live up to the hype? i think the saying came from Japanese people being distraught that paris wasn't as amazing as the pictures made out.

thats not Stockholm Syndrome.

Stockholm Syndrome is where you feel Apathy towards your captors in a hostage situation.
Empathy rather than apathy, surely?

I think there's a translation problem somewhere here.

This.

I read this thinking whaaat?

EDIT: Don't be silly guys, the OP is clearly talking about the other Stockholm Syndrome. You know, the one where you go to Stockholm and you just feel really out of place and find it hard to make friends?
Or the one where you order a cup of coffee in Stockholm and have a seizure when you see the bill.

Jesus christ, this guy just wants some advice, not everyone telling him that he doesn't know what Stockholm Syndrome is. We learnt that from the first post. He's living in a country by himself and is finding it tough.
Now, I'll give you some real advice. I just moved from England to Spain with my family this year, and even though it's not as big a move as you, as I currently go to an English school, it was tough. Everyone in my school are Spanish, and there are some clear differences between people. Obviously it's going to be a hell of a lot of a change coming from the middle east to England, rather than from one european country to another.
I'm going to be honest, I naturally found myself to fit better with the English/international students as you have a lot more in common, and it's easier. Rather than everyone who is settled in and that.
I suggest you take it one step at a time. Instead of trying to get in with an English group of people, who are settled in, try and make friends with international people. People who are explaining the same things as you. I am unable to believe that you can find no international people in Sheffield. Obviously, don't close yourself off to the English people, as you'll make it worse for yourself. I suggest that you try and get along with people as much as possible.
Don't talk to girls before you've made friends with boys. You need a group of friends first.
Just have the courage to talk to some new people and make friends. Just know that, it's not that people aren't making the effort, it's that they think that you're not making the effort.
I hope it gets better.

You have no syndrome... don't let these stupid syndromes pull you down boy! Practice makes perfect, you might fail for a few times, but you will learn with experience and its pretty normal to have language barrier at start that is...
