Exclamation i cant stand community college life anymore!!! - October 9th 2013, 11:28 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering by the original poster or by a Moderator. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

i just started community college and it has become hell for me. i lost all of my friends because they decided to go to colleges that are far away from me. I've also tried to make new friends, but that has also become a hardship for me as well. I've only been able to join one club because of the little free time i have between my classes. i really want to meet new people, especially start a new relationship because i haven't been in a relationship for over a year and i would like to be in a college relationship. i really need lots of help for this. what would be the best thing to do and what are many ways to meet new people?

Hey there, As a complete introvert I had a lot of the same problems. The thing that worked best for me was talking to the people I was sitting around in class. Most of the time people sit in the same place so you get a chance to get to know them.

I had a lot of the same problems my freshman year! I was so busy with school and my job that I found it really hard to meet new people. As Kate suggested, talking to people in your classes is always a good place to start. Even if you do something as simple as forming a study group, you could end up with some great friends. The more time you spend talking to people, the more likely you are to find some that you have things in common with.

Does your school put on any events? Perhaps you could find some that fit with your schedule and make an effort to go to those! They're always great places to meet new people and can turn out to be a lot of fun. Ultimately, getting involved will help you a lot. So, keep an eye out for things that you can do. It doesn't have to be something as long-term as a club. It can be something simple like volunteering at a blood drive your school puts on or going to support a sports team.

Keep trying! You'll make great connections soon enough.

foreign hearts & exotic minds compelled her.
she had a gypsy soul
and a vibrant heart for the unknown.

Sometimes you need to make time or find a balance. Take a step back and see if you are taking too many classes. There are also other avenues for meeting people such as jobs or joining outside clubs.
