    So basically I am living with my friend, her friend, and her friend's 2 friends for second year if that makes sense. I found it very hard to get involved in the group, particularly as they have all already bonded apart from me,(they arranged group meetups without me before the whole housing thing) and my friend pretty much forgets I exist around them. What has made it even worse, is they all have group meetups (occasionally inviting me) but most the time they don't, and then my friend posts pictures all over facebook, it really rubs it in and upsets me. After all, how am I supposed to bond with them if I don't see them? Excluding my friend, I haven't seen the rest for nearly a month now, while I think they all see each other probably twice a week. What am I supposed to do? I have already told my friend that I felt left out, obviously she doesn't seem to be taking the message...and I am living with these people next year, I don't want it to be like this

    I think if anyone just jumped into their 'circle' they wouldn't be too impressed. It might be worth getting to know someone in the group and working your way slowly there. You would talk to one of them, find common hobbies etc, eventually meet up for coffee with one of them and then after a while you would be part of the group too. Sometimes it does take time and effort to become part of a group but slowly making really good friends with one of them would be more worth it than just being friends with the whole group.
