I'm at college and I have literally no friends.
I did try to make friends, but my (ex) boyfriend cheated on me with one,another just stopped talking to me and the other one dropped out.
My "friends" from high school used to tease me about not having made any new friends, left me alone at lunch and didn't bother trying to talk to me or send me a message when I was sad.. they'd even blame it on me, saying that I should have messaged them.
I have anxiety so I don't find it easy to approach people...
Does anyone have any advice, or something to help me?

Whoever you are, you’re never alone. I was the same up until a few months back, then I realised the only person who has your back in life, is you! You need you and only you. Go out, enjoy life’s simple pleasures. Take life day by day and enjoy every moment. Meet people, go places, enjoy being in the world you’ve been given. And then everything will fall into place

i’m sorry this is happening, anon, it sucks.

i understand where you’re coming from, as a very similar situation happened to me last year and i kept having panic attacks while trying to mend my relationships which did NOT go well. my advice would be, though, just keep trying to approach people and keep trying to convince yourself you deserve friends and happiness and respect. the method i used to combat my personal anxiety was "i’m not friends with them now anyway, the worst thing that can happen is they think i’m weird and we stay not friends". i’d advise finding the one thing that will calm your anxiety and then just going for it and showing everyone you’re a good person to be around. you might want to try talking to your old friends and explaining everything from your point of view, although that’s a big step you might not want to take just yet. i can promise you there’s a high chance your situation will improve, though, if you believe in yourself and keep trying. good luck!

if all else fails, remember the internet is a wonderful place and we'll all support you here on TSR. also, at 17 you only have maybe one/two years left of college before you can leave, right? there IS an end.

Having no friends usually sucks, however, like the previous comments, most 'friends' you meet are temporary. Those friends that teased you about not making new friends are not friends at all!!

So you don't feel as awkward or uncomfortable maybe spend some of your lunch time doing extra study? in the extra study groups you may find the right kinds of friends
