    2.) Go to the library and join a club, if your into eduction find books - and read them, write notes, and become more clever.

    3.) Make friends - its a good thing to make friends, people who you can trust when you start uni, thats a good way to get rid of loneliness!

    4.) Visit your parents - visit your parents families and friends.

    5.) Have fun, always have something to do!

    By the looks of most peoples posts when they're lonely 3,4 and 5 are the issues. E.g. some people are introvert/don't make friends so easily, some are just homesick, some are a combination of 3 and 5 because their flatmates don't have much in common with them so they don't become friends, therefore don't have fun.

    Still though, good advice. Especially when 1 + 2 = a good way to meet new people which can lead to 3 + 5 happening.

    Advice if you're feeling lonely = go and make some friends.

    Brilliant. And I suppose your advice for cutting crime levels is for criminals to stop doing things that are against the law, right?

    I can't think of anything more lonely than wondering around a theme park on my own. That might just be me though...

    2.) Go to the library and join a club, if your into eduction find books - and read them, write notes, and become more clever.

    Haha are you joking? Most people who are at uni are into 'education'!!!! As if I don't have enough notes to learn from my course already?!?!

    Honestly, the last thing I want to do when I am lonely and alone is going to a theme park or somewhere like that. It would make me feel even worse as you always see loads of groups of people with their friends.

    And saying 'make friends' isn't really that helpful as most people are lonely because they want to make friends, but haven't. Is this advice serious or just a joke?

    Or is this what you did when you felt lonely at uni?

    I certainly agree with the "bored" thing. If you're feeling lonely, probably the last thing that you'd want to do would be go out with people you don't really know, but that is the BEST thing you'll ever do for yourself.

    I felt awful at the beginning of living in halls last year, and my flatmates persuaded me to go for a drink with them.. it was the best thing they ever made me do, because I had a good laugh, and realised that they were good people who I would grow to be close friends with :-)
