Personally, i woudl try to look for people outside your class. I remember I used to go to the library every lunch and break and found reallt great people there. Maybe you could join a club too.

But overall what I want to say is although you are 100% justified in having this worry,, don’t worry too much! Finding your close friends works different for everyone. You just have to try to stay positive and approach things with an open mind. Good luck! :smile:
