We just recently moved to K-Bay USMC base in Hawaii. We are from Buffalo NY i have lived there my whole life...until i married my husband..my high school sweetheart..we have been to this willl be our 3rd base..an to me it seems the more we move the harder it has become to make new friends. we first were in NC at Lejuene and i loved it there the people were friendly and fun and jus soo amazing we have block bbqs and our kids were all friends and it was like a family all of us and i loved that...then we were at Quantico VA..the people there..not so friendly they were judgemental and rude and kept to themselves and the wives thought they were better then another bc of the rank of their husbands..it sucked i went from thinkin the USMC is about family and friends and thats how it was to havin a huge slap in the face when i got to VA and seeing that ppl are jus not all like that..then we moved here to K-Bay hawaii in august...so far the only ppl i know are the ones i already knew from before but other then that..they are not like outgoing or friendly at all..u smile or say hi to someone while walkin and they jus look at u like did u jus seriously talk to me...and its soo stressful...goin from havin soo many friends to havin almost none in jus almost 4 yrs...ehhh...i jus dont know what to do..i miss home ad my friends and family and being in a p[lace where people are decient and kind and want to know who u r...they keep to themsleves and jus are mean...i dont get it..u would think that being a military wife on a military base and being in the same situation and lifestyle as everyone around u that u would be able to make friends like that...but i havent met people like the people back home or even like the people i met in NC and it makes not only themselves look bad for being self centered and rude but it also makes the military look bad...they are supposed to be good people but they jus dont seem to be that anymore..what happened to thisworld in the past 4yr that people cant even be nice and say hi to u nemore...i jus hate it its makin me hate bein a military wife and i still have 15more yrs to go...can someone help me out maybe its jus me..i dunno but i amsick of feeing alone and out of place..i jus sometimes jus want to give up and go home..WHAT SHOULD I DO??
