    Hi, I need to decide whether to go to an English town to work or go to my home country and work there. I have lived in the town before and am looking to work for a month before university starts. It should be possible to find work but I would need to look. Also, I worry about being away from relatives and friends. When uni starts, I probably won't be able to see them much. If I head back, I get some financial support but I don't know how likely I would get a job. I prefer the UK but I worry about being away from old contacts for so long, I feel like I should deepen the relationship a bit. I don't want to be alone in another country even if I like it ... you meet new people but still, home is home. (I've lived in the town for a few years before.) Then again, not all people I know are that supportive and nice. But I don't want to be totally cut-off. Please help me make a decision.

    If you European, American (including south American), Australian, New Zealish, Chinese, Japanese then you might as well stay.

    Judging by your post, it sounds to me that you long to go back to your home country and perhaps feeling home sick. Would that be a fair comment?*

    Hard to say. I want to find a place to be whenever. I met very nice people in UK and I really like the country. But sometimes I feel it would be easier to find a boyfriend and stabilise in home country ... but then I miss UK so much. Darn it. I just don't want to feel cut-off and lonely in UK.

    okay. To an outsider like me reading your post that is the impression I get. *Follow your heart. You only get once chance at life and you must do what makes you happy. Good luck

    I agree. Business- and money-wise it is better in the UK. (My country is ok but not on the same level.) This potential is important to me. At the same time, I am from this other country so my support network really is or should be there. I also feel it would be easier to get a boyfriend there but I would not like to stay there forever I think. So I am very torn. What do you suggest?

    Please do help. I have been stuck in some town nowhere because I cannot decide for a month. So I would really appreciate some analysis/suggestions. If I go, I fear losing my support network or just working, if I don't, I fear I will fear more and more deflated, it'll be a mistake, may be harder to come back ... Might be overthinking but I need to stabilise somewhere.
