I came to New York around 18 days ago with very high expectations. My plan was to go on a solo trip for a month and come back as a much better person. I've been feeling homesick almost throughout the trip and I somehow feel that I am not enjoying enough.
I've seen the National Museum of Natural History, Metropolitan museum, Statue of Liberty (Twice), Central Park (Over 5 times now), the Charging Bull, the Empire State Building (from outside haha), the Highline, 5th Avenue, roamed around in Manhattan, Long Island, Queens, Jackson Heights. I even went to Luna Park and the beach at Coney Island yesterday, that was fun but again, it felt 7/10 even though that's the sort of a place where people should having 10000/10 fun.
Again, I don't feel content since I'm already blowing away so much money by being here and I don't feel like I'm getting the worth out of it.
(Imp) I'm good looking but I'm facing bad luck with girls on online dating, so I'm a bit sceptical about approaching girls IRL, plus the communication gap because of English being my second language is a bit annoying and really holds me back from approaching girls because communicating with them would be a mess. What can I do to meet girls? Because I really want to, it's practically my last week lol.
What are your suggestions? What can I do to make the most out of my trip? I still have ten days. Thank you in advance!
No accommodation costs since I'm living at my Uncles'.

Man, 18 days is too long! NY is not that fun of a place to just visit for 18 days. You have 10 days left, and that'll be 28 days which is just a nightmare lmao.
Honestly, I suggest just relaxing, don't focus on visiting placing, and seeing things if they just bore you or you're not as interested as you want to be. Pretend you're living there - the average person isn't going to visit the best places every day, they're going to do normal things. Take long baths, read outside, people watch, try your hand at writing (lots of screenwriters in NY).
Honestly I get very homesick as well within a day from being away from home so I definitely get it.0

Maybe leave New York City and go someplace cheaper and better (NYC is extremely expensive). If you really want to see NYC I can't help you. But if it's the US you want to see you need to leave NYC. The best way to do it is to get a car and start driving. With only ten days you can't get too far. Maybe drive north up the coast. You should be able to make it to Maine and back in that time and still have time to see some things. You could also head south, maybe to DC, or just along the coast. Or head inland to start seeing the "heart" of the US.0
