Keep this anon, please.
So I moved from my school's sixth form to a different one, where they offered the courses I wanted to take, but I'm beginning to regret it because I left all of my friends behind!
This time last year, when I decided that I was ready to make this big step on my own regardless of whether or not any of my friends were going, I was really confident and could communicate with people properly, so they started to like me and we soon turned into good friends.
But now, 6 months into the new college I'm attending, I don't feel like I have anyone to talk to. I visit my old friends from sixth form regularly, but we have drifted appart, and they are no longer my 'close friends'.
I have met and spoken to lots of new people at my new college, but it's only through the basis of lessons and msn/facebook.
I don't feel like I can be asked to join a new set of friends, because they all have a group already, and they'll probably alienate me because I'm not well known and because I'll be a 'newbie'.
So how can I form a real close bond with these people I talk to in lessons and on msn/facebook? I really miss having a best friend because it was kind of like another part of me - somewhere I could turn to about boy troubles and family problems.
