    Hi, i started Hull Uni in September, and for the most part I enjoy it. I have never had any friends throughout my life for various reasons, although not for lack of trying on my part, so i guess I've always felt lonely. I thought that i could change that going to uni, that i would meet new friends, and even a best friend, and i could finally be happy.

    However, this has not been the case. I have spoken to lots of people in lectures, and we can have a good laugh, but none of them ever want to do anything with me outside of lectures. I am a member of two societies and a sports club, and the same thing has happened. In regards to housemates, there is one girl who talks to me, but she is always out with her own friends and doesn't want me to join.

    Before anyone says join more stuff or talk to more people, i have tried that. I honestly couldn't tell you how many people i know, its just that they don't want to know me. It doesnt help that i have no friends at home to talk to either. Can i really go through Uni and life like this? Any ideas? Thanks

    The route of all happiness is not necessarily having a best friend , but I wouldn't see this as there being 'something wrong with you' because there isn't ! You just haven't clicked with anyone yet , perhaps organise something , don't always wait to be asked to go somewhere ... ask if you can come !?

    Hi, I have quite similar situation to you, I have started my course September 2016. Because I have had a diploma, I have joined the second year Adult nursing. I do not know any one in the course. I have similar feeling to you, especially because students were together for one year then I joined them. They have their groups etc.
