I've realised over the course of Christmas i have no real friends at uni anymore.
I had friends in first year and the beginning of second year, at one point I'd even say a fair few, but I became very depressed and withdrawn a month or so into the semester just gone.
I think people began to find it hard to connect with me, if I went on a night out I'd start crying and have to go home and I stopped attending classes. I ended up going home every couple of weeks and often staying for more than just the weekend.
I stopped eating as well.
I live in a mixed house of 9 and u used to be good friends with them all but I've become so detached from them all I'd hardly call any of them friends now
I dated someone who I think I truly loved for a bit of first year and I miss having a boyfriend so much but I'm hardly a good catch at the moment
I really don't want to go back to uni for lack of friends
Any tips on making friends? Or getting a boyfriend?

I only made friends in my 3rd year of university so don't worry, you have plenty of time. Have you considered societies? That's how I met one of my closest friends in the final year of university. Make sure you try to relate to them as much as possible and remember you won't click with everyone. Find common interests and talk about them, take conversations to FB or WhatsApp or whatever and eventually you'd want to hang out together. Friendship is not just about talking but sharing memories together.
