I have a former coworker/friend who left JWs and had a very similar experience. She missed it sometimes because of the community and because she didn’t feel she had any real purpose after she left…or at least no real sense of higher purpose. She never expressed feelings strong enough to imply she was seriously considering going back, but she did often say she missed some aspects of it.

Still, she left it and stayed away from it for a reason, obviously. She was raised in the religion.
