I think you underestimate the influence of the American embassy and forget how much the government was just kowtowing to a certain orange President just a few months ago.

Americans in the UK don’t face the same barriers as folks whose countries don’t exert as much power. You can see this from the moment you land at the border and see us swiping through the formerly Brit-only e-Gates.

I would love to be added to such a group! I am having similar issues with socialising in London 😊

Why would you move to the UK and actively try to find other Americans?

Expat culture 😉

London is a lonely place! You’ll realise it soon enough. People usually use MeetUp here to find other people.

I really want to be a teacher. As a kid, I hosted summer school for my siblings and other kids in the neighborhood lol. Never pursued it because of the lack of pay. Grew up really poor and decided big 4 was the way to go. It was great to learn it, etc, but even in college I was the student teacher for my accounting classes. Now I’m in compliance, finally making six figures started a new job, but still not happy??? Idk, it’s a good job, but…maybe I’m just confused. Cont’d.

I am debating going to therapy for some anxiety issues I have but I truly feel like I understand why I feel the way I do and I manage to cope with it well enough. I wish I could stop the anxiety completely but I am not sure a therapist could do that. I just fear I would be throwing a lot of money at some thing just to be told what I already know possibly. Has anybody been in a similar position and found therapy worth it?
