    it started off really well, all the girls in my flat got on but 2 of the girls have become a lot closer and quite clingy to each other. The other girl is really really nice but has a boyf who was here last night so wasnt with us so i felt like the spare part. we were with a bigger group of guys but they stick together a bit.
    Also i am trying not to be quiet/shy but sometimes i find it hard like last night i just couldnt think of anything to say but wanted to as dont want to be known as the quiet one....any tips?
    the lads i also sometimes (less than i thought though i feel i have nothing to say). I want to be more confident and talk more around boys but feel sometimes i struggle. A few nights ago i spoke to a guy and he asked for my no, and we texted and at first suggested meeting but i couldnt and now on fb chat doesnt talk or when we text i always do first. is this just what guys are like?
    its the ball tonight and i hope to talk to more people than my flat mates so hopefully i will feel happier
    also joined the gym and a few sports societies tomorrow so meet more people and actual start lectures.
    am i worrying over nothing? will i begin to meet more people other than those in my flat more this week than last?
    thanks xxx

    Yes, it's still early days at the moment. You are doing the right thing. Hope it all works out soon!

    KayleeLand is right, it's all still early, everything settles down after a couple of weeks.

    Just take the first few weeks to get WAY out of your comfort zone - talk to loads of people, down worry about the fact that you might feel a little silly at times.
    Come the end of your time at Uni you won't even remember about 90% of the people you talked to in those first few weeks or most of the stupid stuff you did. But that other 10% that you got on with, made an effort to be friends with and they made the same effort, will be awesome friends - that'll probably know too much about you for your liking.
