NOW MAN THE FUCK UP
you seem to be having such a great time at uni!
you'll make friends soon, it's a tough time, so i hear. chin up and keep being a great guy. or words to that effect.
i've met outside, it's just i don't feel a part of the group. Like sometimes they're all much better friends with each other and i'm just 'another guy'.....it's very difficult to explain.
how long have you been there? Just go with it. The majority of people you're 'friends' with now will fall away over time anyways, that's what the 1st year's all about.
i've only been here 10 days and already the four of us from our flat that stuck together have broken away. One of them got a girlfriend or something and the other two have practically become best friends, and whilst i still talk to them etc it's obvious they care more about just them two than others......AND i've made no friends on my course yet, although i still have two modules and seminars to do yet so might meet people there......i just fear it's getting too late to meet people......also there was this girl, actually woman being as she was a 28 year old mature student who i got sickeningly close with and she's dropped me for quite obvious reasons which i understand, but it's still annoying. hmph....i do know there is imporvement to be had!
You'll be lucky to have met the friends you'll leave uni with after 10 days. Just keeping making acquaintences, and don't worry how good a friend they become. The first few months are all a little false anyways. ENjoy!
seriously just chill out, and roll with the punches, my best mate went to kent, and it wasnt till his 3rd year that he fell in with a group of people who turned out to be lifelong friends. i made a bunch of friends in my first year in halls but once i moved out in 2nd year with people i enjoyed spending time with many of them fell by the wayside.
i had a good 40/50 people i was friendly with and new well enough to speak with when i bumped into them by the end of uni....2 years later i only see 4 or 5 regularly and keep in touch with another 4 or 5 very sporadically...life ebbs n flows brother
about finding best friends forever so quickly....i thought everyone on DiS was by definition comfortable with spending a lot of time on there own listening to music no one else would approach with a barge pole.
