    I've just recently broke up with my boyfriend of one year and I've found myself struggling to find friends or a hobby to occupy my time with. I mostly spend my time either watch television or completing university work. Has anyone got any advice on how to find new friends or how to find a hobby?
    Thanks.

    Depending on your age, you could join the Cadets or the T'As to keep fit, active and gain friends. You could go to an LGBT group (to support them if your straight) and you could spend more time with family.

    Keep with doing university work though, you will make friends through work.

    You could look into the societies at your Uni to see if anything peaks your interest, maybe something casual that you can attend sporadically in case you're busy with work or you could spend the time that you would spending watching tv learning an instrument or a new language

    I'm sure the societies will be happy to at least let you know what they're about so you can get info in case you want to apply for next year and learning a new language would be a good use of your time too

    definitely not societies are easy to join late as you're doing an activity so you aren't going to be so much a third wheel if they know each other, you can just do the activity and hang around and they're always happy to have new members
