Uni friends deserting me postgraduation

    It's so annoying, I think I made good friends at uni but the majority of them just stopped talking to me/responding to my messages. I guess I should have seen it coming since the graduation day. For example, there was this girl I knew for 3 years. Helped her a bit in a few of her modules and she invited me to her birthday party and everything. On graduation day I saw her and said hi and she aired the **** out of me like I'm one of the statues. If it wasn't graduation day, I would have rinsed her out but decided to keep it to myself until a few days later. I texted her if she saw me and asked her what she did to celebrate. Blocked.

    So this is what I get as gratitude or for being a friend. My other friends are starting to blank me too, I would try to initiate conversation but they just blank me or just make the conversation so dry. As I said, I helped these people a lot at uni and they helped me as well, we hung out while at uni and now that uni is over they gonna throw me onto the curb and leave me stranded.

    They were never my friends it seems, but the cheek of it to just air me after knowing each other for 3-4 years is a ****ing joke. Now I only have 1 or 2 people that I talk to regularly and they work so it's hard to meet up with them and chill. I'm running out of friends, argh!

    What the hell? Can anyone else relate to this? What can I do? Sorry for the rant!

    friends come and go, it's pretty normal... try not to stress about it, some people make life long friends at school, others 6th form, others uni, others not until they're in work etc

    99% of people you meet in adulthood are temporary unfortunately.
