    I'm in my first year of uni, and I have no friends. Well I do, but they're just people on my course who I go out with now and again. Apart from that, I have no friends at all. I don't really get on with my flatmates, and I never see them anyway because they're all off doing their own thing. I've thought about joining a society but theres nothing that appeals to me. I don't think I'll make friends now, it's too far into the year and everyone has already got their own friends and social groups. I'm usually just stuck in my flat on my own with nothing to do. I really want to make friends but I'm finding it impossible. I love my course, I just hate every other aspect of uni. I think another factor is everyone loves going out like every night of the week, but I don't. Any ideas?

    I feel exactly the same as you. I feel like I have no friends, just some aquaintances off my course and stuff, but I love my subject. I feel so torn, I can't face being alone for the whole of my degree, I'm hating it here but I still want to follow my chosen career path and I need a degree for that, theres no way round it. I'd recommend joing a society, even if its one that only vaguely interests you. Even if you dont meet any friends through it, it might give you an opportunity to get out your flat, and I know how horrible it is just sitting in your room with nothing to do. Try picking something that has regular meetings, training sessions or workshops. It does help a bit if you know you have something to do for at least an evening or two in the week.
