Now before I write this I'm in no way a shallow person and I hope that people will understand where I'm coming from and maybe even relate.

So I'm starting my first year at university in September and am really worried that I won't get on with my apartment friends. I've always been know to be a guy who gets on with anyone, I'm friendly, have a sense of humour without sounding arrogant.

What I don't want are people who are the complete opposite to me and almost shut themselves away from everyone. I feel like if you're living with these people for a year it would make sense to be more out in the open but obviously some people aren't that way incline and I totally understand that. I just get worried that I'll basically have no friends at university and it will be really upsetting and almost depressing..

Anyone relate?

Yeah your flatmates could be quite introverted. Make sure during freshers you socialise with people from other floors. Everyone is really outgoing at this stage so you can go knock at a random flat and hang out with them. My flatmates during first year were quite introverted so I just went to the flat upstairs.

Well it's better to have someone quite instead of someone who creates a lot of issues in the flat like I had.

Luckily though the girl that caused issues moved out and everyone in my flat gets on really well.

Look for Facebook groups for your uni especially if your going into a halls type environment, it's how I got to know 4 of my flatmates before move in today.

Totally I was a littel worried when I wen't off for the first time but it was fine everyone was really nice it was the first time that I could really be myself.in uni most people are quite outgoing. My brother was on a hall with quite an antisocial bunch but he made lot's of friends in the opposite corridor you will usually have a few extroverts in the hall so hangout with them and enjoy.

My current flatmates just sit in their rooms and when you do talk to them they barely respond and its like a one-way conversation. I'm quite introverted but even I get bored with it. Trying to make better friends with my coursemates.
