    8 / 10. me and my freinds have just started uni. we met up back at our home town the other week for the weekend and though we've all made new freinds at our respective unis we were all saying something about it just doesnt feel the same.
    Yeh I think it will get better with time. I'm at uni as well and it's weird how everyone seems to just magically make friends and it all seems a bit overwhelming and ' forced ' to some extent but after time you'll form close bonds with certain people and it'll feel more normal

    Well let's see

    - The only social interaction i've had this MONTH has been in a job interview
    - It's been months since I got a text message from someone who wasn't my mum, EE or Dominos Pizza
    - My only friend lives in another country

    I'm a 15/10

    **** bro.

    Feel for you. :hugs:

    Idk really.

    I don't have a single friend. I'm in A2 now but there hasn't been a single occasion where I've ever met up with anyone from sixth form outside of school. I sit and eat lunch on my own. The only socialisation I get is with teachers, which is why I often hang around after class and pack up real slow so I have an excuse to talk to them. I mean, there's no one else who I can tell that I sent my UCAS in, or that I sat an admissions test the other day. I have no one to share that with. But I think that just bugs them.

    I think I probably say less than 50 words a day in sixth form to other people my own age, on average. Naturally over the weekend I don't talk to anyone. I never get any messages on Facebook or anything. But I'm not completely passive either. The other day I tried asking someone how they were doing over Facebook. No response. Even when I really really tried to make an effort and be extroverted at the beginning of AS, it came to nothing and just drained me of my energy.

    Not a day goes by without me thinking about how I don't have friends. Fortunately I'm not totally deprived because there are some people I talk to online occasionally. I don't know if they're really 'friends' though. I still feel alone.

    So I guess 9/10, even though it doesn't feel too bad. Maybe I've just gotten used to it. Honestly it's so painful trying to make friends, it's so forced, can it really be worth it? But I'm not capable of it anyway; it's impossible.


    Ikr.

    So hard to find people we truly connect with.

    That seems a bit contradictory.

    Well an 8/10 on my scale is very lonely.

    Just seems an odd choice of emoji.

    Ok bro calm down.

    I'm not the one anyone should be feeling sorry for.

    It was just unfair of you to call people pathetic. Some people have been dealt a very bad hand.

    I'm kind of a introverted guy so probablies around a 4 or 5, but I'm quite content with myself and am good at keeping myself entertained and engaged in my hobbies so it doesn't really feel like I'm lonely at all

    If you don't care then you can't be a 10.

    Being alone and lonely are not the same thing.

    You're probably not a 10 if being alone doesn't bother you...
