How do you make friends?Watch
But I've left school now, and my sixth form *acquaintances*, wouldn't call them good friends, have left for uni. So they're all busy now and we don't talk, even though I tried to stay in contact. I've had a part time job for about a year now, and I've made no friends. Partly because I work in a supermarket with elderly workers. There a couple people my age and I try to talk to them whenever we are on the same shift, but they don't seem interested and walk off.
I mean I think I've just been unlucky that no one young works with me, and anyone my age works different shifts. Most shifts I work I'm the youngest there, closest to my age is probably around late twenties, and I'm not overly keen on having a 30 year old bestie.
But I don't know how to make friends other than work. I'm looking for another job but I don't know a good place with young workers, I only know places like Starbucks and a WHSmith near me, but I can't bring myself to work for minimum wage. I don't really want to go to college or uni, so that's out of the question. I live in a village/in the middle of nowhere so I couldn't join a club or anything as I don't drive and wouldn't be able to afford getting public transport that often.
I don't know what to dooooo. I know most of you would say it's my fault, it probably seems like I'm being negative and not putting effort in - but don't say that because I am trying to talk to people online and offline and looking for new jobs, and this is affecting my mental health Any ideas? Thanks.
