Hi, so i'm a 20 year old female who has just finished her last year at university, and while also dealing with some mental health issues, I've realised i have no friends other than my boyfriend. I was at uni for three years. In my first year, i had so many friends. i went out drinking probably 4 times a week and felt on top of the world as i also worked as a dancer in some of the nightclubs. In second year, i gave up dancing and of course lost contact with the majority of the people that i only used too see when i was working. I still had my four closest friends, my flatmates and a few friends from uni who i spoke too quite a lot.Everything changed in third year. I started struggling with my mental health because of money struggles, confidence issues, family issues and other things which all got on-top of me, leading to my attendance at uni being basically 0. I stopped speaking too my course mates because i never came to uni anymore (which is understandable), i fell out with two of my closest friends because i felt they weren't treating me the way a friend should and i cut them off. i still have my flatmates and two close friends however i already know once my flatmates all move home we wont see each other and will probably lose contact. My two current close friends are my friend which I've known since i was 15 and my boyfriend. However, my friend who I've known for a long time i feel like is drifting away from me. She's became an angry drunk (so i don't go out with her now) and her friends that she normally socialises with are very immature. We don't ever talk about personal things with each other, especially not since starting uni, and i feel like i can no longer call her a close friend.Now my boyfriend, who i am so grateful to have, is quite literally my only friend, which i never ever thought would happen. I do not spend every day with him, nor did i chose him over my friends at any point, so i know he's not the reason that my friends have all disappeared. What do i do? I'm nearly 21, about to go into the big world, no idea where i want to live or what i want to do and even worse i don't even have a friend to turn to. help! x

Friends are overrated. Focus on your boyfriend and family.

Your 'boyfriend' should be your best friend but he clearly isnt if you feel you need other friends.

Most friendships are meaningless anyway and it just sounds like your boyfriend is just there.
