Default Who likes it here?

By that I mean generally in the US.
I just joined a few days ago and am really surprised at how many people are not happy and wish they were back in the UK. Nothing is perfect and I too get my days when I miss the UK, but for the most part I am happy here.
I am wondering if most of the people who want to go home are just here temporarily.
Just curious, hope I am not stepping out of line here as a new member.
Cheers!

UKgirl

I like it here, just takes a while to get used to the differences. Being here has really made me realise just how much I do actually love the UK and british food!.

I love my new life here, it just aint for everyone I guess.

Some days I do, and some days I don't. Today I'm feeling mostly indifferent (and cold).

From what I've seen here, I think a few people really like it, most tolerate it and some people really hate it. Stick around for a while and you'll be able to tell who's who. Keep in mind also that this is the place these folks come to bitch and whine because they can't very well shit where they sleep can they? I think that kind of skews things.

I agree. I feel that I have to be sooooo careful what I say sometimes incase I offend people. Especially my other half who has pointed out to me that i do say everything here is shit when i dont like something lol. Its just cos its different and Im trying to adjust.

Some days I love it here, others I hate it depends how homesick I am.

My husband gets very defensive too when I start becoming very negative about things. Not because he thinks the US is fantastic, but because he feels guilty and worried because I'm miserable.
