This Sunday I'm moving into my house for university and living with my flatmates from last year. I didn't go to freshers this year because my birthday fell inside it and I wanted to spend it with my family at home. The problem is, outside of my housemates, I don't have many friends. Only one other person invites me out to do stuff, but even he has started to drift away from me since he's made other friends. I don't really feel a special bond with my housemates either. Last year, towards the end especially, I started to avoid them as much as I could for no reason. I was quite homesick at the beginning of last year so spent quite a lot of time in my room whilst they were socialising with each other. I will look to spend more time with them this year but I feel like I have social anxiety, and the chances are that I will spend a lot of time in my room again. At the beginning of last year I tried to join some societies but none of them really interested me. I do have a few "acquaintances" who if I saw around campus I would say hello to, but I can't say I have many friends.
I'm a second year and don't have many friends - any advice?
