    Is it weird that my boyfriend, of 5 years, is my only real close friend? I see people my age with large groups of friends and sometimes I feel left out to not have this. But, I go out a lot with my boyfriend and holidays etc so I'm not bored or anything either. I have people I chat to at uni and see there but not outside of classes. What do you think?

    It's better to have 1 close friend who is with you through thick and thin than 10 friends who don't care much about your wellbeing

    As long as you haven't given up loads of friends and social groups to be with your boyfriend, or lost them through neglect then it's fine, and happens. It's when you find yourself spending all your time with your boyfriend and and you leave your friends behind that it's a problem. If you're just happen to be looking for friends outside of your relationship now maybe try and find couples to double date with? Or join a club on university if it is an issue that is bothering you.
