I'm now in the third month doing business in India and I really can't stand it anymore.

I lost my girlfriend because her parents suddenly decided that i couln't see her anymore. i know about the issues here, but WHY? they SUDDENLY change??? they expect that it is normal that i can't see her 6 months. Well that is enough for me, No more girlfriend here. i can't live with those nonsense people. Then the fact that really everything is a big hassle . Even getting a simcard is a big hassle as i need Indian identity prove. every day is a fight through the traffic. Daily I see accidents with bikes. These indians really can't drive.

Don't know, but i think I won't stay for long.

Darwish, it seems that Indiamike is your favorite ranting ground..
whenever something bad happens you come here to flush it out..

Yes, I've suggested before there's no shame in admitting it's not your thing, and trying somewhere else. You won't be the first one, and certainly not the last.

Attitudes can change as you mature, Darwish. Maybe India is not the place for this process in you...is your girlfriend Indian and living at home with her family? I can understand the parents-
in fact I'm surprised they allowed you to go out in the first place! India can be a daily challenge, how you cope with this is up to you. Things that may seem to be huge catastrophes, when put into perspective are no more than grains of sand in the scheme of things...
Every cloud has a silver lining!

Darwish, seriously, I'm sorry to hear that things are not working out for you.

Affairs of the heart tend to make us inclined to see things in a rather black and white fashion for a while. I've declared that there would be no more women in my life --- a few times.

This girl/family thing is a tough one to get to grips with. Try to remember that this is just one girl, and just one family you have experienced, but that there is indeed much more effective pressure on girls from parents here than we are used to. A learning situation. Painful, though...

I don't know if I could cope with trying to set up a business here. Can you believe that simply having a house altered and decorated was the most stressful thing that I have ever done in my life? Far worse than heartbreaks! Really!

How determined are you? There will be bad days, bad weeks, bad months, and India seems to intensify the experience, for good or bad.

But if you have to make the decision that it was all a big mistake then do so. It will never be less than having had the most amazing adventure.

Just try not to make decisions on really bad days.

Good advice Nick. Also don't bottle stuff up - talk to friends around you, then start making your decisions later.

Nick, thanks for the advice. I will make a business trip to eastern europe in a few weeks. Once there i'll decide what to do.

The businesses I'm preparing (and through all trouble i booked quite some progress), I need to expand in europe first. i need to collect some information as well. Then I can decide either i stay in europe and making trips to india (little businesstrips but off course on tourist visa) or I will really take the step to take the ordeal of settelment in Hell.
