So uni has been far from what I expected... I haven’t made as many friends as I thought I would and the social experience hasn’t been that great. I’ve struggled a lot with social anxiety and uni has been very lonely tbh

I’m meant to be graduating this year and now I fear that any social opportunities I had are shattered forever, even more so by the pandemic.

Do people make friends after university? Idk I just worry that I will never make friends now because I didn’t manage to succeed in my social life at uni.

Yeah there are still opportunities to make friends after uni. You can make them at work, or through hobbies for example. I play d&d and have got very close to people through that. As well as guys i play hockey with.. Also I hang out with people from work. You also make friends meeting people through other people.

I'm in a similar boat, as most of my friends drifted away after I finished last year. Trying to just work on myself before starting any new friendships especially with how uncertain things are atm.

PM me if you feel like talking
