Hey, I'm a first year at university and feel pretty lonely at the moment. I do have friends, really good friends in some cases, but I got unlucky with my flatmates so whilst my other friends go out with their flat I'm stuck for things to do. I'd say I have 4 very good friends, and around 10 other mates.. is this normal at university, especially first year? I don't know, just need reassurance or advice really. thanks for any replies

Humans all have a sense of emotional longing to achieve a rewarding stimulus.

I would say that 4 very good friends and 10 mates is a very satisfying number.
It happens; you cannot get along with everyone and you shouldn't see that as a bad thing.

As long as you can spend quality time with your very good friends that should be fine.

Hey!

I'm sorry to hear you're feeling lonely at the moment, but it's great to hear that you do have some really good friends I only had a couple close friends at university, so I'd definitely say that's a great amount you have!

When you're feeling stuck for things to do, it might be nice to try a new hobby - baking, writing, blogging, going for walks? Could you join a club, get some uni work out the way, arrange to visit family?

Good luck with everything, I wouldn't worry too much about making friends, and quality is always better than quantity
