Hi,

I recently moved to a new school in September to start fresh (sixth form) because my teachers were bad in my old school (irrelevant) and I also only really had 2 friends (and one of them was an *******).

In my new school i've managed to make 4 new good friends in this first half term, however, I have a problem. There is this group of people that I would like to be friends with, and some members of this group do occasionally talk to me and invite me to play games with them, but I'm not really part of their group.

I would really like to be part of their group, however I really don't know how to do this effectively. I know it will take time, but how do I become proper friends with them? I know this is a stupid question, but please just dont say "just talk to them" cuz i've been doing that (to some extent).

Any advice is greatly appreciated .

I would say to just spend more time with them in general, even if it's a hello in the morning or whenever you see them or spending a lunch time with them, also it may be a good idea to think about their likes too?(brownie points). Sorry if this doesn't help, but that's what I think is effective to make new friends. Good luck! You got this!
