Well that's your experience I guess. I myself didn't know my flatmates till I moved in, and they are second years as well, and I get on fine with them. I certainly don't feel lonely. As for the internet.. man, your flatmates sound like jerks. How can they live without the net anyway? That means they'd have to go to the campus everytime they need to check email or do a bit of research or something. Strange people... sorry things didn't turn out good for you. What flat was you in by the way?
