    How about this for a TSR meet? A fun day out in London?
    London is always good. Lots to do and relatively easy to get to from various places

    Hmm, going on a train will probably end up with me ending up in completely the wrong place ^.^

    Whatever, it'd be quite fun, ha.

    This is me. I've been in bed all day the past few days because I have nothing/no-one to leave the house for. The few friends I do have all have plans. Sucks Plus I have no money so I can't afford to do anything or get anywhere. Sucks x2
    Aww I can relate, that's been me for the last week or so. It sucks x 1 million lol. My friends are lucky enough to have jobs to keep them occupied through the summer, not to mention money to spend. There don't seem to be any jobs these days, so no money for me

    I think a lot of us are in this same situation so...:grouphugs:

    I feel the same, I'm depressed as hell. Feeling excluded from old school friends, which I didnt have many to start with. All my summers were spent like that. Except for last year, when I had a boyfriend and I hung out with him all the time. But we broke up so.. I'm all alone again.

    Gosh, I'm 20, and I've never been so depressed. I've never had many friends, and right now I'm completely lonely.

    I feel like crying.
    Awww *hugs* :console:

    It's awful awful being lonely I know, surely there must be someone you can talk to? Thank god for sites like this! Without them I think a lot of us would go insane from boredom lol

    I totally feel like most of you guys too. All my really good friend live abroad and after being abroad for a few years now I do not have a lot of close friends here at home left anymore. And they are all gone atm. My boyfriend in a different country for all of summer doesnt make it better either.
    I tried to find a job or volunteering, nothing worked out. And I really really tried hard, I just don't seem to be employable or something.
    No summer classes or anything on offer and I am completely broke atm so all I can do is hang around the house, hope for good weather to be able to go to the pool and help around the household. Which does keep me busy but it's not fun either so I am just sorry for myself the whole time while organising paperwork for my parents etc
    It's kinda good to hear that other people are in the same boat, so far all my friends only keep telling me how awesome their summers are and it made me feel like quite a loser

    I was thinking about getting facebook which might get me out a bit more.
    Are you serious! You'll just get addicted to it and spend every day checking who's online, and who got tagged in a picture, and reading people wall posts... beware the dangers of facebook!
    (I'm not addicted myself, but apparently loads of people are)

    Yeah I'm in a similar position. I've been out a few times but just for some drinks, which isn't really what I like to do with friends. Sometimes I feel like I'm on a different wavelength than the friends I do have. Anyone feel free to PM if you're feeling similar/just need someone to talk to.

    Well, if you have time before your trip abroad, and if anyone else fancies it, how about a TSR meet in London?

    I have the same problem, just 3 or 4 close mates, who don't really wanna do stuff . Perhaps we could all meet up and have an anonymous friendship party.

    Get a job, then make friends in the work place, I usually find friends who work with you are more understanding of you and in my eyes are better friends.

    i hate when people tell people who come on health and relationships for advice to get a job. do you know how ridiculously hard it is to get a job?

    I'm in exactly the same position. I have one good friend, but the only times we see each other are to go out drinking on the weekend, so in the day I have absolutely nothing to do
    So if I can't go out and socialise with friends, I prefer to stay in, but my dad has a go at me and forces me to go out with him and my sister, which I don't want to do as I hate seeing people my age out having fun, when I can't. I know that sounds incredibly silly and selfish, but I can't help it.
    Life's terrible at the moment

    Im one of those people with not so many friends, and i hate it. Im friendly with people, but i only have 2 or 3 close friends that i actually hang out with. Its not that i dont like meeting new people, i just dont tend to ever get invited out with people, because no one considers me to be a close friend. To make matters worse, i recently broke up with my boyfriend, and even though we're still quite close, i dont see much of him either.

    I just feel like this summer's going to be loooong and boring, and i really wish i could be one of those busy people who's always doing things and seeing people. I feel like such a loser when people ask what ive been up to and i have nothing to talk about, because ive literally done nothing.

    Does anyone know what i mean? Like, im not unpopular, but i feel like as soon a school finished, people just forgot about me because i dont fit into any friendship groups.

    I really want to keep myself busy over summer and see people, but im too shy to ask people if they wanna do stuff, because im scared it'll be awkward, or like im intruding on their groups. Any advice? xx
    I woudl but at the moment I cannot be bothered; plus I need to tdy my room!
    and I am three miles from the city and i can't be bothered to get the bus to meet people at the moment!

    I'm in the same position at the moment. No hours at work going until the schools break up, and alot of my friends are away on holiday/already started 3rd year Uni placement/working all the time/spending all their time with their boyfriends (one of which I don't have). I don't mind so much, I'm not depressed...just mind-numbingly bored.

    It sucks, but I'm hoping things will get better once I can get more hours at work in the school holidays and therefore more money to fritter doing pointless stuff to keep me entertained

    Welcome to my world.

    My summers consist of surfing the internet, watching TV and eating. I haven't done anything with "friends" since I was at school. I don't even have acquaintances anymore...I can't be bothered to be honest.

    You can come and play Chess with me if you like!

    Seriously though, have u ever considered joining school/local clubs etc? It really helped me to come out of my shell when I joined my local universities student union... now I attend 3 clubs there 3 times a week! (and I have friends who have PhD's so it makes me really cool at school!...oh wait.... )
