Do you ever miss "your kind of people"?

Regardless of race, ethnicity, and nationality, do you find that when you are not around your own, you feel really homesick? I am not saying just occasionally, I mean that you are LIVING in a different culture?

That is happening to me right now. I would just love to see 'my people'!

  • Anyway, we can't. We are being pioneers! So we have to stick it out.

  • Yes I know what you mean. It is not being mean or anything, it is just craving what is familiar! I will take the whole bunch of them, weirdo's and all, just to see their faces!

  • Of course. I think it's natural to feel homesick for the surroundings and way of life that you are used to, once you've been away from it. I went to school in Atlanta, and although I loved it and had the time of my life, I so missed sunny California and diversity of the Oakland/San Francisco Bay. There is no place like it. And it's what I know.

  • No, I feel more comfortable around my in-laws than my family at times. They are also American, but different race.
