    I don't go out. I get depressed whenever i go on social media because i see other people having fun with their lives. Im 18 already and i feel like ive wasted my teen years doing **** all. I don't even know where to start making friends or socializing, my last few a level exams are coming up, and i dont really want to spend the next 3 months of summer indoors playing video games. Any advice on the sorts of places i go to meet new people that i will actually get on with?

    All the normal advice. Join a club near to you? Put yourself out there a bit more. I know it is really hard and I struggle with this quite a bit too but all you can do is try your best!

    If you are going to uni this year, im not sure but they could send you an invitation to summer school and so you can meet other people who will be coming in Sep/Aug. (im applying to uni and they invited me there to summer school). What about your hobbies? Reading or drawing would be enjoyable.
    Or maybe you could join clubs/competition. Apply for summer jobs - you interact with more people and improve your confidence

    Hope this helps

    i was like you but then i changed by finding a professional aspect and just got to professional places
    the worst was me going to london to spend 4 hours in a starbuck to look professional in a nice suit with a macbook (it did work i met several people who i keep in contact with that day )
