Well I like my friends and I assume they don't dislike me but I feel like we don't really click. I also joined their friend group at the start of secondary school whereas they have know each other since before primary school so I often feel left out. We don't really have similar
interests. I really want a best friend who will prefer me over other people but at the moment I always feel like I'm second best. I also feel like I'm not happy when I'm with them which i think is important in friendship. They often meet up without me which I can understand as I live either away from them but I feel like they don't want me along when I can come.
We have a small friend group - there are 4 of us.
M likes L best, L likes H best, H likes L best and me and M really don't like each other.
I feel like perhaps I ought to try and find new friends but its a bit late for that as all friend groups are already formed. Because I live further away, I can't really attend any extracurricular activities and it's a fairly small school anyway. I'm in year 11 so I'm kind of hoping that I'll meet some new people at sixth form.
I guess I'm just trying to ask for advice - should i just carry on as I am - being friends but not best friends and left out? Or what should I do?
