    I'm 20 and in my second year of uni. I have practically no social life and have never been in a relationship. All I've ever wanted was just to have a normal life like everyone else but I don't have one I have joined societies but even when I go I barely talk to anyone and don't really have someone I can call a good friend there. Even the people I live with will just make plans and just leave me out of them. They'll arrange to go out as a house and sit and talk about it when I'm there and won't even invite me. My best friend has recently gotten a boyfriend and I'm happy for her but it just makes me realise I have no-one. Since she has a boyfriend we spend a lot less time together and this can sometimes make me feel worse. I finally got confident enough to ask out the girl I liked and got rejected.

    My friends then made me join tinder where I got quite a few matches and went on a few dates but after the dsates the people would either stop talking comletely or jsut tell me nothing was going to happen. This has led to me feeling worse than evs me seem like I'm alone and have no one. I also can suffer from quite bad social anxiety at times. How can I change this and actually get a social life and even possible find a girlfriend? Thanks

    concentrate on positive feelings and activities. sitting alone feeling miserable won't help you find happiness. also you must not think that everyone else is living the dream. most of us are just pretending 99% of the time.
