Hi everyone,

I have no idea what to write about.
I've been in a depressed mode for a while and I keep searching for "answers" to my problems.
Like Tony Robbins said, to get out of difficult times, you have to find people who have been through it and be your role model.

A little something about me, I originally came from a small town in Asia and you know what a small town is like most of the time:
Full of belittling thoughts and doubts. Yeah, it's true how the first part of my life was shaped and formed. Part of me made me different because I didn't want to be like those people in that town. I have come so far that now I'm in a happy gay marriage with my husband in the UK.

Although we have a happy marriage, our story is not a "happily ever after" one.
They say true love can change a person and it is so true. My husband (he was born British) and I are both unhappy with the life here. Unhappiness began because we had a taste of a good lifestyle in Asia and we compared it to what we have here. When we came with pre-conceptions of what we should expect out of our life in the UK, we get disappointed.
I had my own business in Asia and we got to travel around the world every other months.

We're stuck with jobs that we hate here and we're now living in a small town in England that doesn't really pay well.

We have planned to retire in Asia. We're in our 30s now and we do not think we can wait for another 20 years to do that. Life is too short.

The reasons I am here:
1) Find solutions and success stories similar to ours
2) Help others who are going through what I've experienced
3) Make some genuine on-the-net friends

Lastly, thank you to everyone who have read this and thank you to the people who have made this site exist! :heart:

Warm welcome, hope you'll get loads of knowledge on this forum.

Asia is beautiful, where would you like to go to?
Acceptance doesn't mean resignation; it means understanding that something is what it is and that there's got to be a way through it.

@xeta

Thanks for dropping by.

We hope to go to an Asian country that will accept us but so far none on the list.

If you have the time/finance, take yourself and you husband on a holiday to Thailand so you can experience yourself. The country is very gay-friendly.
