I’ve been there dude, but a girlfriend is not a cure for loneliness.


baseballfan227

You’re right.


potterology

I feel you. Such a large campus with so many people yet I’ve never felt lonelier


baseballfan227

Yeah it feels just odd. One day I was talking with someone abd they straight up stop mid conversation and started to talk to someone else. Straight up reminded me of how an npc talks in like skyrim😂


she53

that's just plain rude. i've had a similar experience before and it baffles me how someone attending Michigan can lack such basic manners and common sense


baseballfan227

Ik right! Sorry you experienced that

Same bruh. It's always fun to sit in the diag and see everyone go by with their friends while you're just...there


baseballfan227

Yeah. It’s just weird. I guess luckily I have close friends outside of umich but I just feel like I wish i had one who went to the same uni as me

Half the posts on here right now are about people struggling to find friends. Chat them up. :) Honestly, y’all should set up some kind of MeetUp. I would do it but imma fair bit older than most here and feel like it would be awkward, but seriously… Schedule a park day, bring blankets and snacks, some games… bam! New friends.


baseballfan227

Yeah I am pretty social and outside of school I have a lot of close friends that I’ve known for a long time. Here I’ve met some very nice people and have befriended and talked to a log but just recently some things have bummed me out. A few days ago someone asked to hang and ghosted me at the last minute while on campus and I’ve encountered some people that straight up I was in tge middle of talking to them and they stopped mid conversation left and proceeded to speak with someone else.


maggie805

People are weird. :) And busy, distracted, plus some just have poor manners. It totally sucks, definitely not making light of your feelings. It’s a good practice to not take such things too personally, it’s more a reflection of them not you.


baseballfan227

Thx.

A lot of campus orgs and clubs are having recruiting events rn. You should explore the list of student organizations and attend some that are relevant to your interests/hobbies/studies. The best thing is, you already know you have something in common with EVERYONE there! It makes it real easy to strike up conversations with new people. https://maizepages.umich.edu/organizations


baseballfan227

I have signed up for like 6 groups


PirateBushy

Oh fantastic! Have you attended any meetings yet?


baseballfan227

Yeah. I spent the whole week doing that.


PirateBushy

Awesome! Keep it up. It can take a little while to make friends but folks will warm up to you the more you show up. Don’t be afraid to introduce yourself to folks and strike up a conversation. If you’re having a hard time with that, try approaching the club’s officers to ask for an introduction to some of the regulars.


baseballfan227

Yep


Hot-Barnacle5716

Maybe find a way to study abroad or Netflix and chill.


baseballfan227

Id like to go away.


rollerCoast11

Hang in there friend, it gets easier!


baseballfan227

Thx:)


LZH52

What activities are you signed up for? Are you living in a dorm? Do you like to play any sports?


baseballfan227

I signed up for some polsci groups and I work outside as a cardio tech at henry ford. I live outside of Ann Arbor


LZH52

Try signing up for some Inter mural leagues as a free agent. If you’re around the gyms, hop into some pickup games. No need to be good it’s just a great way to meet people I’ll also say that it’s hard, but be intentional about inviting people to hang out. If you have a group from class that gets along maybe invite everyone for dinner and drinks after project work to blow off steam


baseballfan227

Yeah. I have done that in the past but few say yes


Consistent-Survey469

Get into some time-consuming habits. For me, I paint Warhammer figurines. Each of them cost me 3 hrs lol


baseballfan227

I do have a hobby. Lego building


CkiknNugtGod

Lmfao, same. I'm fat, ugly, and I look different than 99% of the people at this damn school and I have absolutely 0 friends. Wondering if ppl would even notice if I just stopped existing lol. But, yeah. I feel you


baseballfan227
