Not made many friends on my university course... watch

    • Thread Starter

    Im in my first year for university and now in my second term. I quite enjoy my course but honestly feel there is no one im truly friends with on my course. I have connected with some people briefly but no friendship has come from it.
    I recently thought i had become friends with this group i got to know, and decided after the lecture i would wait,say hi and hang around with them after until our next lecture. I said hi and pretty much everyone ignored me, the person who did say hello to me quickly said that the group had to go do some work and we quickly seperated from eachother. So yeah, now it feels a little weird with them and im now back to as if i had just started.
    I feel its too late to start talking to new people and pretty much everyone on my course and now within their own groups of friends.
    This issue is kind of putting me off university at the moment, does anyone have some general advice? Does it get better in the second year of university?

    This is pretty much me too.
    I say hi to quite. After people on my course etc but none I'm truly close with to have a great laugh or banter. There s a few I sort of tag along with mainly just talk about work etc. Most days I'm by myself all I do is go to the library and study because I don't want people to realise I'm so alone.
    Pretty sure everyone on my course knows I'm alone too.
    Like you I waited for another group who were part of our group it's confusing lol
    But they always walk past me
    No hi's or maybe a half assed hello they ignore me and my messages and just go.

    Finally op feels like I've found out im not alone x
