Making proper friends watch

    • Thread Starter

    I've made a post before about how I still feel homesick even though I'm now in week 5. I'm feeling a little better and a bit more settled but I can't help but realise I've not really made any proper friends. I usually have people to hang out with and I still socialize with people (although I hate going out at night so skip clubbing / parties) but I don't really have much in common with these people and so don't have much to talk to them about.

    I'm finding it very hard to find people who I click with (especially because I'm quite a boring person) and have looked into societies and joined some, but it feels harder than ever now that people have found their cliques.

    Not sure about the point of this post other than to vent / seek reassurance...

    I've always been an anti-social bore and it hasn't stopped me getting places.

    In any case, 5 weeks really isn't that long and i doubt you have missed the boat with the friendship making... keep plugging away, it takes times to get to know people well enough to call them friends, even more so if you are reserved yourself.
Have you ever experienced racism/sexism at uni?
