I am awaiting a university start in September. I have been single for awhile and unable to make many friends in London due to being schooled abroad. I am working most of the summer as well to have some savings for university.

However I have been feeling so lonely for a very long time and it hurts sometimes. However I know that if I were to start uni in Sept I would not focus on being single and lonely so much. Apart from working there isnt anything else going on in my life at the moment.

Anyone else feel this way?

It's only two months to go, and that will fly by. There's not a great deal you can do about it in two months, so I would advise just relaxing til you go. Being alone is good sometimes.

Do you have anyone in London you can hang out with? If so, organise something with who you do have. Cinema, bowling, shopping, or just a drink. No-one is really going to change it but you.

yeah, I had a major fallout with some of my "friends" last year, so that means that I had to get in with a whole new crowd, which wasn't easy.
If you get really down about it then you can message me, and I'll talk to you

yes feel exactly that same, if not slightly worse than you. but there is no need to make a deal out of it, coz as u said your off to uni in sept, where all the loneliness problems should go away- but remember you will have to make the effort at uni

Agreed. Remember that Uni isn't a magical place where everyone makes friends effortlessly and you're guaranteed to have a good social circle and everyone will like you. It really doesn't work like that. What you do have though, is the benefit of pretty much everyone around you being in the same boat - not really knowing anyone - so groups are forming which means it's much easier to place yourself in the centre of one rather than trying to break in from the outside like you would otherwise have to. However, you do have to put in that initial effort to become part of a group. If you move into Uni accomodation it should be fairly easy. If you're not doing that, you'll have to take up a sport or whatever. Don't worry, you don't actually have to be good at the sport, plenty of people will just be going along for the social side. But yeah... do these things, and do them QUICKLY when you get there, because groups start to form a lot more quickly than you'd think and once they have it can be difficult to ever be fully accepted. Don't live at home, not join any societies, and just go along to classes expecting to make friends. It won't happen.

Can't you go out some nights to a pub/club, local venue etc. Socialise with some random people to top up your social needs bar (bit like sims LOLZ), might make some decent friends while your at it.

Dating sucks, boys in love are annoying. I'm 16 and have been single for 2 years. I've found that life without dating is fabulous and colourful.

OP- uni will change your life completely. You will meet the most fantastic people. I know exactly how you feel- it is easy to feel very lonely, but make the most of the summer, and come september it will be fantastic x

I'm also counting on this, and I'm also just doing... work. It's just... yeah. It gets to you, but you need to put on a hard shell. Only another year for me, and I take pride in the fact that I'll get my UCAS form/Personal Statement done, and everyone else'll be panicking a day before the deadline. ^_^
