    17 years old, no friends in that time.

    Basically, I have no social experiance. People dont want to socialise with someone who has no social experiance (its very evident) so I cannot get any social experiance.
    its a rut, cycle, whatever you wanna call it that I dont think its possible to get out of.

    You have to get out there and talk to people - really it's the only way. You don't need the intellect of Stephen Fry either, people remember you for the things you say however odd! Start small by maybe introducing yourself or just randomly talking to someone in a queue. Build up slowly as your confidence increases.
    Let people get to know you, and your lack of social experience won't even come into it. Honest

    It's easy to talk to people online if you're shy so why not make a few online friends and when you're comfortable and know them well they can be your real life friends, sounds silly, but normally you meet people who you have the most in common with when you've spoken to them online rather than meeting them face-to-face, (at work, college etc) and not really 'choosing' them by mutual interests.

    Are there not any fellow class mates in your school/ college that you work with in lessons?
    Maybe try and get involved in a sport and join a local club?
