    I feel really lonely. I’d like to have friends it’s just that I am really shy and anxious.

    Maybe people who surround you just aren't right for you? and you should look for a new social circle?

    Or you just do not do anything to make friends.

    Do you have and hobbies or interests? If so, try and invest more time in those activities. If you are at uni, join some societies that relate to your interests. I'm very shy too but I find socialising a lot easier if I have something in common with someone.Try and do things you enjoy and embrace your own company maybe it'll help with your confidence and you'll eventually meet like-minded people.

    Focus on your own self-development. Is there any hobbies you have been wanting to try out but never got round to doing? Doing new activities will allow you to meet other people with similar interests to you. Have you tried talking to colleagues/classmates? Maybe smile more? Smiling makes people more likely to talk to you.

    No, do Uni. I also have next to no social life, but my life will be so much better if I only worry about social life when I get into a top Uni (Oxbridge) than if I were to focus on making friends now and getting into a rubbish Uni as a result. Work hard and apply to a university course, it will make your life so much better, trust me.
