    So I recently started a new sixth form back in september. I made friends within the first two weeks, some from my lessons and by meeting some. Then I went with a group of girls who seemed nice, became friends with them and they became my group of friends. Recently things started going downhill, and these 2 girls, part of my friendship group, became really close. They started leaving me and another girl behind, going out without us, just generally isolating my friend and me. Now one of the two close friends has a boyfriend, which makes things even worse, as we dont even talk as we used to.

    The issue i have is that I really dont know if they actually want to be friends with me. I know this sounds quite petty but I just moved to a new school, so making friends again right now would be harder than back in september. Should I go to the people who are currently in my lessons and sort of become closer with them or make new friends? I have no idea.
    (constructive comments please)

    I suggest you be close friends with the girl the 2 others left as well as yourself. A similar thing happened to me. As soon as my best friend got a boyfriend she left me I'm just her friend now, a shoulder to cry on when she wants to rant on about her lover being an a hole. I've never been to her house since. So I started hanging around with my other friend who she left behind as well as me. I wasn't that close to her and didn't like her entirely but were the best of friends now. Were even going on holiday together. And because people saw what an awesome friend ship we have other people started to join out table in the canteen and then everything just falls into place, they will be the jealous ones in the end. And my sixthform is tiny it has like 40 students altogether both year 12 and 13. Any more advice just ask!

    Heyy! So I would say definitely open yourself up to other people and make friends, the more the better! And remember, sixth form is only a couple of years, and they're so important so don't stress too much, focus on your work, and make friends with people who are worth your time! Don't waste time and energy on petty people who can't even make time for you! Good luckx
