Struggling to form friendships

    • Thread Starter

    Overthinking has always been a huge issue for me, and I'm constantly worried that the longer I wait, the harder it'll be for me to make friends at uni.
    I haven't been blessed with the best accommodation for first year, we're catered and there's no social space whatsoever. The people in my flat don't talk to one another, I only speak to one girl next door to me. When I so go to socials, I meet great people and have fun, but it's only a 'hi' and 'bye' type scenario, they already have their flatmates at their accom and I'm not all that close with too many people. This is stressing me out, because when I look around me, everyone seems to be set, and I don't want to be left alone for next year. What should I do?

    Join societies, get to know them and speak to them on FB or whatsapp.
