Yeah and besides you don't really need a lot of friends to be happy. I only have 6 close friends from my middle school and high school years that i still keep in contact with in college, one of them being my absolute best friend from preschool. You'll meet people, don't worry

i have three really close friends from high school, it sucks, but at least I have people to do stuff with. Say, OP, if you make your way to australia, I'll include you in our shenanigans

Hey, wheres my award? :(
Oh well at least I still have two more years in university to find out if I can get an award for my social awkwardness...


Though I've never had a problem making friends, even though I was shy when I was younger, there are plenty of reasons people might have trouble making friends. There is a difference between friendships and acquaintances, joking or laughing with others isn't necessarily going to produce friendships. It also may be hard for someone who is bullied, afraid of rejection, suffering from social anxiety, depressed, etc. Your comment comes off as pretty insensitive towards people who have trouble making friends.

I agree with 18, saying a joke does not a friendship make.. it's not that hard to make people laugh, but this doesn't mean all of a sudden they are a true friend. There are plenty of people that have a difficult time finding others they can truly trust in (which is what makes good friendships), so try not to be so insensitive

When you've been bullied during all your middle school before you finally had the temper to tell them to f*ck off in high school, trust me. You don't want to be friends with those people. You don't want to say funny things & laugh with them. And you're afraid that everyone will laugh at you afterwards anyway.

I do that all the time. I have people I talk to at class sometimes, but friends I really hang out with always move away. I have about 2 friends from last year tho.
