'Impossible to not make friends at uni' made possible... watch

    • Thread Starter

    So I've been an uni for a good month now.. and yet to have a single so called 'friend'. I couldn't wait to get to university, as I've felt like a bit of an outsider my whole life in friendship groups, and hoped this would change. I don't know why it's like this. Considering dropping out, as I visited home at the weekend, and it was the first time I've been happy in a while, but do not want to regret my decision! I get along and speak to my flat mates, and some people on the course, but everyone has their friendship groups. I am very unconfident in myself, I always have been. My boyfriend is at home, which is making everything harder. I guess this post is just somethiing I needed to get out, with no one to really talk to.

    Your not the only one. I'm at uni and don't have any friends. I was surprised by this too, I got lots of reassurance before I came like 'uni is different to school, people will want to talk to you' etc. no-one does.
    But, my question to you is do you need friends? Don't waste your hard work to get to uni and loose your degree just because of other people. After all no friends probably means more time to do work doesn't it? You can enjoy being on time while the rest of your class is rushing to do it the day it's due in (really is a nice feeling)

    Hope this helps, but feel free to ask anything else.

    Have you joined any societies yet? They're a great way to make friends as they bring together a wide variety of people together and give you a topic of conversation that's of shared interest and isn't just small talk.

    It's not too late in the year to join (it's never too late!) but of course you do actually have to go along to the events to meet people!
Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
