    I moved in at uni 3 days ago and I haven't made any friends or been out anywhere. I feel really lonely and left out because I moved in late so everyone has gotten to know each other quite well. I was invited out yesterday but my flat mate left without me. I guess they just don't like me. I don't know how I'm going to get through this weekend. I haven't got anything to do. I keep crying because I've always been a loner and the one no one wants to be friends with.

    Get online and find out about clubs and societies at your uni. Then start following up ones that you'd like to join.

    Then get down to the student union and see what's going on.

      Listen, you are far from the only one suffering loneliness at uni. I too am someone no one wants to be friends with. I would try your best to worm in with your flatmates and your coursemates, and it may take time. But at the end of the day, you're at uni to get a degree so if you've got no mates then you have fewer distractions for work.

      There is nothing more destructive to getting work done than being unhappy and depressed.

        Disagree. A certain type of person can use it to their advantage.

        What would you do if your flatmate ditched you like that?

        Did your flatmate mean to leave you? They may not have done it intentionally - perhaps they thought you were sleeping or went out?

        It has only been three days. Give it a chance. Go to the Freshers Fair and sign up for societies. Have you met your course mates yet? You can meet lots of people and make friends outside of your accommodation! The worst thing you can do is stay in your room and cry - get out there and go for it

        You don't. You just let it eat your soul until you wither away into nothingness.

          My heart would be very upset, but my head would say forget about it, keep trying.
