    I've been trying to make friends at college. I've been lucky enough to be invited to join a group of people a few times.Last week didn't go so well. I didn't get to sit near them in class, and didn't get to say much to them.
    They were getting on better with another guy anyway, who is chatty and funny, makes conversation. I can't really speak out much.

    When walking back, I passed them and said bye. One of them said 'bye' back and I walked on. They started walking back as well, but didn't say anything to me. I didn't say anything to them - I didn't know what to say or do.After that, I felt really miserable - I feel left out and not one of the group anymore.

    I keep wondering why they didn't say anything to me when walking back . I hate that shyness and social anxiety may cause me to miss out. I have no friends so thought this was my best chance to make some. I don't know what'll happen if I miss out again.I'm driving myself mad trying to figure out what went wrong and if they like me or not. I feel miserable and frustrated that I can't overcome shyness.What do I do to make up for last week and come back from all this ?

    Okay I will try, do you think it's a bad sign that those people didn't talk to me when walking back ?

    Idk for sure. I just dk. The person seemed okay when I spoke on facebook to them - just clearing up why I didn't say anything to them.
