    I thought I would come to uni and finally make some real friends because I've been a loner basically my whole life but I'm still a loner and every one around me has made lots of friends that they can go out with, I joined clubs and societies but that was a flop. I thought I could just suck it up and tell myself that studies is all that matters but the people in my flat are so loud and hearing them laughing and going out with their friends makes me really sad. Starting to feel like I'm going to be alone forever.

    Try and talk to people on your course. Someone there will be interested in something that you are interested in as well. I didn't have any friends when I started Uni (third year student now) and in these last couple of years my life has changed completely. Keep at it. You're only a month or so in to your course. Things will progress.

    Well people are going to tell you it's not too late. Fact is though, it is too late. Everyone's got their own clique and a group, they'll know each other too well to introduce outsiders like you.

    It's not going to be too late, many groups get outsiders in later

    keep trying with the clubs and societies-when you're new you're expected to talk to new people so there shouldn't be any awkwardness

    I found I didn’t really click with most the people I met in freshers week so I’ve made friends with a few locals. (I’m in private accommodation) It was actually a lot easier than I anticipated so I would recommend trying that

    The people that I met during freshers week and I just didn’t click so I made friends with a local. (I’m in private accommodation about 30 minutes walk away from campus) it surprisingly wasn’t actually that hard nor was it intentional. I needed to get a taxi back to my flat but didn’t know any phone numbers so I asked a guy on the street and he gave me the number of one, we spoke a bit, exchanged numbers and we’re meeting up to get dinner next week. Lol my point is if it’s not working with uni students, just talk to the people in the area. He’s helped me navigate my way around the area a lot so I would say it is more beneficial this way too

    Make friends with someone local to the area. You get two things out of it: A friendship
    Someone to help you navigate your way around the area
    It is a lot easier than it seems too
