I've just moved into a house with another bloke and, for the first time, a couple of girls. Great, except I now fancy one. I've got no chance with her, ever, so ok, move on.
Except I can't. Why?
Because I have little to move on to. My life revolves around work which involves long hours in the office. At home I just watch DVDs. I need to socialise more but I've got few friends, just never met lots of the right people, and no real hobbies or interests. What ones I do have are quite closet and niche.
These thoughts from the ether keep telling me I need a girlfriend. Rubbish. You shouldn't need a partner to complete yourself. But maybe I want what couples tend to have.
A life. Things to do, people to see. Activities they enjoy. Great, I can do that. But where the hell do I start? I want to socialise more, with people my age (21), but I'm not very sporty and have low self esteem, and it's hard to strike up a conversation when you've little to talk about. Quite a challenge.
Any tips would be much appreciated!

How about joining some clubs or societies in things that you have an interest in so that the lack of conversation isn't an issue?

Join societies, freshers week is coming up soon! Go join everything that you are remotely interested in, and if u don't like it, u don't have to turn up to their meetings, but u can meet LOADS of people with the same interest as you there!
Don't worry about not being athletic, everyone has their own interest!
