    Hi, I moved into my accommodation on Saturday and I've met my 4 housemates who all seem really nice, but today they've all vanished. One housemate returned to the house but they instantly left and just said "I'm going out" before I could ask what they were doing. I tried to message one of my neighbors if they wanted to meet up but they ignored my message.

    I'm now sitting in my room and I feel really alone and upset, which is strange because I felt fairly fine earlier. I've tried messaging my housemates in the group chat we made but and I can see that they've seen it but they haven't replied. Then I posted in the group chat for my accommodation and asked if anybody wanted to meet up but, once again, a lot of people have read the message without replying.

    Has anyone else experienced something like this? I'm feeling really bummed out right now
    I would suggest to stop going down the GC route and when you get a chance, try a bit with your flatmates in person (be it 1 to 1 or as a group..) which I know might be difficult if they're in and out, and don't look like you're trying too hard either - just have a chat with them.
