Moved to the U.S 17 years ago.
Went to the local football 'Sock-uuuur' training nights and met a shit ton of people.
The language was a bitch to learn though... :p


I play golf, football, go to the beach and drink heavily in my free time. (y)
Sounds brilliant , what’s the job opportunities like for a health care (Un)professsional ?

Make sure you spend some time developing your social circle so you don’t feel dependent on her. Even if it means spending some time alone at the start, it’s important you don’t live your life through her and you feel dependent/rely on her too much.
Also one of the better ways of picking up the language

With all the health care employees getting fired for being unvaxed you might have a shot!
But in all seriousness, people moving and working here in the states is nigh on impossible right now.
Come in across the border of Mexico and you might get in! lol

Any one here ever moved abroad?

Im moving to Hungary in like 3/4 months time and just want to know what you done to meet people and what you do in your free time ect.
Moved to the US a couple of years ago. My advice is to carve out some time to do activities that are going to be YOUR activities and protect that time at all costs.

Im assuming you play footy or can at least have a kick about cause I think I remember you being a bit of a fitness nut. I’ve never been amazing at football but good enough to be okay 5 a side and be average, but it’s the best thing for meeting mates. If you google “social footy” or “social soccer” I’m sure you’ll find some 5/7 a sides that meet at a bar after etc. Important to have your own activities and not be dependent on your gf.

Feel free to pm me if you want any more thoughts

I moved a broad once. I told her, "You're a big lass but hang around until the end of the evening in case I don't get a better offer".
Her tears of joy and gratitude were something I'll never forget.
Poor women, probably left so disappointed.

I feel the same. Pretty depressed about the short, medium and long term prospects of this country
It's been shit since Brexit and the Johnson government has made this country an intolerant embarrassment. If I could afford it we'd be off somewhere else.

If you're moving to Budapest, it would be a good idea to join the Budapest hash club. There are about thirty in their group , so you'll get a lot of resourceful information and you get a chance to see how the country is at the same time. Plus you get totally pissed at the end of the day!
