So, I'm 2 months into university. Long story short, after fresher's week and all that I still have no friends. Yet everyone else in my flat, my class, societies, have already formed groups and I'm left out!
The worse thing is, I know that I could fit in with them, and I know I could be good friends with them. I have good chat and a good sense of humour (my only good feature to be honest). But I have no idea how to make the first step to 'integrate' without looking incredibly clingy and weird, since hardly any of them know me (I've spoken to some of them 1 on 1 but it's hard to become good friends this way, since they don't hang out with me but hang out with their friends).
So: advice??

I have 5 friends so forgive me, I can only answer the former part of ur question; talk to someone, it may be awkward but it will only get stranger as time goes on into the future. You should introduce yourself and try to hold a conversation.

one of the course directors illustrated this by saying "put your hand up if you're already in an exclusive friend group and wouldn't welcome anyone who came up to you and started a conversation?"

and no one did
