    We were all best friends and went around as a five. But now we live together, I don't know what's changed but I feel so left out. It's like I'm not in on the banter at all, I try but no one laughs. They all speak in a 'special' voice and laugh at stupid things, it's like they're 8. I'm all ip for a laugh and banter trust me, I'm a really enthusiastic outgoing peron, but it's gettting boring and I feel lonely. Writing about periods and stuff in caps on each others walls, acting the idiots 24/7, I'm trying to think of specific examples but it's just generally just saying something stupid then collapsing laughing. One of the girls just seems to throw me dirties all the time. I don't know what to do: try harder, strive to fit in, or give up and go find some new friends? I feel awful, I just feel so stupid and a freak

    If it's any consolation, I hate girls who act like that. Although, most girls I know stopped acting like that in about Year 11.

    'special' voice... Wow.

    I'd socialise with other people or try to find new friends. It's a bit odd how this has suddenly happened as you're all best friends. Why do you think they'd leave you out of their gayness?

    you havent told us that much to go on, just maybe they dont appreciate your sense of humour or else they think you have insulted them behind their backs or something? talk to them, they will know what is wrong more than us

    Reminds me of a party I was at once that devolved into people drawing penises all over each other and finding it hilarious.

    Same thing happened to me, two best friends at school would leave me out. Sounds like the same, special voice, stupid jokes that aren't funny but they find hysterical (I'm not a bore btw), the whole body language thing to make you feel excluded.

    I don't know what makes friend dynamics change so quickly, but it sounds like it's time to move on and make new friends who appreciate you. Besides, there's loads of new people to get to know, so why stick with the same people if they make you feel this way?

    They must have developed a different bond over the summer. I would try and make an effort, perhaps try and organise fun DVD nights or nights out for you all and things, but don't put too much into it. At the end of the day, it is only a year you have to do this and it will go fairly quicly. As long as you are civil to them then they will not have ammunition to actually be nasty.

    Try and branch out and meet new people to hang around with, as that will get you out of the house too. The way they are behaving I would not really want to be friends with them anyway. Leave them to their silly games and try and just find more likeminded people elsewhere. If it really bothers you then go to the person you trust/ like the most out of them and maybe have a word about how you are feeling and get them to try and get the others to include you more- maybe they just don't realise how badly it actually comes across to you.

    Don't want to give too much away in case they have TSR but had an argument over cleaning. They asked me to clean a room on a day where I was horrendously busy. Did it in the end after they bullied me into having to. And just been shouted at about my contribution to cleaning. I've done some cleaning, but I've only spent two weeks here and I'm not even here of a weekend.
