  2. I've been here for a few months now and I completely failed at making friends. Literally, I can't get closer to or trust anyone I happen to meet. I know the the fault is most on my side though.

  3. Graduated recently, didn't make a single lasting friend. Don't do what I did. Go join a club, even if it only mildly interests you, with the intent of meeting people. Join an intramural team. Get involved with something outside of school, maybe get a part-time job where other students work or frequent (coffee shop, maybe?). Hanging out by yourself every weekend gets really old, really fast.

    1. Pretty sure you're the loser for feeling the need to mock people for no good reason.

  5. Wow, look at this guy, he can hit people when they're down. He must be sooooo cool.

  6. Join a team sport intramural. The fact that you are on the same team will help break the ice and it'll be easier to make friends

  7. It seems social media and a culture of shame has seriously impaired Millennials' ability to foster interpersonal relationships. SM has removed the necessity to take emotional risks and be open to vulnerability. Cultivating friendships is a skill like any other - you have to practice and get over the fact that some will work and some won't. The only way it will happen is if you actively start to engage.

    Let the friendship building commence!

    p.s. Broad strokes, I realize.
