    since starting college ive really drifted from most of my high school friends, all but 1 go to a different college than me and its making me really depressed, they werent really good friends of mine tbh but they are truly all i have and so losing them means i literally have no one, i have friends at college but it wont develop into anything further because they have their own groups, ive tried breaking into one but it seems because they have their existing friends around them they dont care as much. Facebook isnt helping this issue really aswell because my high school friends are always putting pictures up of their outings and it makes me feel really sad i just wanted to know whether this was normal, and should i just get on with it and hope to make better friends at uni maybe? :confused:
    any advice at all would be appreciated loads:yep:

    Aww this happened to me. My closest friends went to a different sixth form to me. I just had to put myself out there! Find people you have something in common with and the rest is history! The thing is, if you're not used to making new friends, then i don't see how it will be any better when you get to uni. Start from now, so by then you'll be an expert!

    p.s. EVERYONE on facebook looks as if they're having a laugh. Don't fret

    happened to me too, in a way i think you have to forget about your old friends so that you fully throw yourself into making new friends. i think that's what i didn't do very well! but i learnt in time for uni!

    EDIT: of course once you have made friends with people at your new place, try to see your old friends as much as possible!
    the positives of this is you find out who your real friends are... the one's who make the effort to keep in touch!
