    So, if all goes to plan, i'm heading to uni next year.

    What I want to know, is how easy is it to find likeminded people or people you have things in common with?

    for example, i'm a hardcore nerd, I like my vidya games and US tv shows and underground hip hop, yes I know it's a weird mix.

    But that's not the point, can anyone here offer their experiences with finding friends with similar interests to their own? cos i'm hella worried about not having people to talk about my interests with.

    thanks in advance for any replies.

    I actually met one likeminded person on here before I went and now we're really close friends. And often you'll find you have a few things in common with your flatmates. Maybe you won't have exactly the same interests but you'll probably find some common ground. I was lucky enough to have one flatmate who is into video games and Asian music like me and to be honest, I didn't think I'd find other people into the same music as I am. So I'm sure you won't have any problem, haha.

    There are so many people, you meet new people everyday, so you will definately meet someone you get on with.

    It might take some time but you will meet people, first few weeks could be hard, for me it took me 2 months to meet the friends I hang out with, those first 2 months were horrible and tough,but dont quit, in a matter of time, you will meet some people u get on with
