I graduated this summer from my 3 year undergrad. I had a really, really close set of friends there who I spent basically all my time with. I've now started a master's, but am living back at home.
I've only known everyone for a couple of weeks, so I'm not really that close or comfortable with anyone. I feel like it takes so long for me to get properly close with people. It feels much more like I'm back at school - I go into uni and see peers a couple of days a week and spend most of the rest of my time at home. It's just such a different experience to living away during my undergrad.
All of my uni friends are off doing different things - different master's, travelling, or doing internships etc. away from me. Already we're starting to message less and less, and everyone is just so busy with their own things now and making new friends. Most of my pre-uni home friends are still at uni or doing grad schemes away from home.
I usually only spend about 5 minutes a day with my family, which is just such a huge contrast to living with friends at uni. I just feel really isolated and lonely. It's hard not to feel low.
I guess I'm just wondering whether anyone had any advice, or experienced these post-graduation blues themselves?

Are there any post grad societies you can join?

Yes, and it will get worse as you get older. Welcome to real life.

Going through this, haven't seen most of them for years, and anyone from months.
A actually barely have an occasion to talk to anybody.
