so i recently started uni and am in my freshers week and I'm just stressing out on whether I'm going to make good friends or not like my flatmates are really nice but we don't really have much in common or click and i don't see them being my friendship group or close friends therefore I'm worrying a bit as i know most peoples close friends/ friendship group end up being they're flatmates at uni, so i was wondering how else i can make friends and get a friendship group as i really don't want to not have any proper friends for the rest of my time at university and am just feeling a little lost at the moment

When you start your course you'll find lots of new people that share at least one common interest with you! It's still such early days, some people don't find their proper friends until second semester or even second year.

First things first, chill, don't force these things. The general rule of freshers week is that you join a load of societies and talk to everyone, then as the semester goes on the friendship groups form.

The group of people I was hanging around with during my freshers week are not the people I still hang out with now that I've graduated. The only exception is my first year roommate who became my best friend but that wasn't all that common, most people split off later in the semester.

Depends on your course, yourself and the people you study with. I've failed to make friends on mine (I'm going into second year).

That said I am an anxious wreck.

Relax. I am sure you will eventually find good friends. You can try joining societies and volunteering works.

Have patience!!! good friendships aren't formed in the first week. Speak to people on your course, join societies, go to events. You'll make lots of friends I'm sure

Im also entering my second year - i go to dmu and i havent got any friends: i failed at making friends in my first year with my: flatmates, classmates, and in general friends (who turned out to be dicks), i never tried societies cuz i was too afraid so as you can guess my ego (whatever is left of it) took a huge blow since my first year was just all out depressing. This year im hoping to make friends by joining societies and hoping that they turn out to be good ones
