    I don't understand the use of the word disturbing in this context to be honest.
    Don't you find it disturbing that a person would die for you? And how did you find out?

    And the way you phrased it, I was disturbed by the fact that you seemed disappointed at having "only one" friend who would do the aforementioned act for you.

    If people I've known for 10 years are swayed by someone's opinion, they deserve to be ignored. **** em.
    This, OP.

    But don't get upset or angry; just put these people out of your mind and focus on the people who are worth it for you.

    (Like your former "friends" are doing, actually.)

    Well you're learning a very hard lesson - knowing who your real friends are. I mean real true friends that will always be there for you no matter what and are there for the good, bad and the ugly. Basically, these people are not your real friends and I think you're better off without them, so what if you appear the 'outsider', who cares?! I'd rather have 1 or 2 decent true friends than 100 **** ones any day. It sounds like you need to feel poplular, well newsflash, no one really cares if you are popular or not, stop caring what other people think. Stand up for yourself and walk away from those fakers.

    I don't think walking away is the solution here, the OP is in his last year at uni and the opportunities to make lifelong friends are thinning. He should stick to them and find out what's wrong. Like I said, investigate the problem! Relationships with people can change abruptly. I've had feuds with some of my acquaintances who are currently my most trusted companions.
