61 fail. OP - don't worry about it. I'm sure you'll make friends eventually. This will make it forced - not a real friendship.

I don't think this is FYL or YDI. The Op is unhappy with her social situation as is making a perfectly logical and reasonable attempt to remedy the situation, while helping some people out in the process. Let the commentators eat you alive for it, they're just basement dwelling idiots who feel guilt over their own lack of motivation.

Is for me! I mean I'm very shy with few social skills and no confidence in the social skills I have. I have three friends, and I still cannot believe that I have them. I'm going to assume you're not the living embodiment of social ineptitude.

No matter your social skills, a few months in university will net you friends. Just get involved. Go to parties, study groups, whatever. It will only be difficult in the beginning.

No. No. Colleges can be either good or brutal. It's not OP's fault that his social skills are too low that he had to sign up to make a friends when it's so obviously that he tried to make friends in classes, on dorm floor, and even in cafe. No, to have a friend(s), u almost had to be so popular in 1st grade and in high school, and already socially well and everyone likes u. It doesn't matter if ure nice person and nobody likes u, its pretty sucks. If u cant play basketball, then nobody wants to

Making friends can be incredibly difficult. I am really shy and the friends that I do have have been introduced to my by other friends so I don't have to just awkwardly start talking to them. Other shy people understand, but the outgoing and confident people usually don't.

wow, you're not awesome... even Justin Bieber made fun of you.^^^ Op, even the weirdest people find other weirdos to be friends with... YDI

Face it, that newsletter was designed specifically to appeal only to lonely and/or altruistic people. So you will meet a bunch of people who are either nice or in need of friends, or both (on which case lucky you :D). This will work out very well for you in the long run.

You know that The Casey lives in Australia as well, right? I heard he exterminated all bullies and douchebags over there, so OP will be safe and sound, I suppose.

Most people would consider their first goal at university to be getting a good education. You need to reevaluate your priorities.
