    I'm not a social person and don't have any friends and have never been good at speaking to people either. I'm shy too and I'm a boy. I'm really nervous because I start college tomorrow and there will be strangers so any advice??

    Just think, everyone else will be in the same position as you, yes they may have a few friends at the college but those friends may be in different classes.
    Normally when you start college or a new place generally, they sometimes do ice-breaker things, so everyone gets to know each other a little bit... you may become friends with people through this as its pretty awkward and everyone understands that haha

    Hey the best thing to remember is that everybody is literally in the same boat as you. Everybody must feel at least a little nervous! You'll be fine!

    Stop overthinking it and just talk to people. It all starts with small talk anyway.
