    since i moved from london to northamptonshire 2 years ago ive found it really difficult to meet new people and make friends! :sad:
    im quite a shy person and dont like people getting to close to me, due to trust issues, but sometimes i get really lonely!
    ive recently joined a football team, but have failed to bond with any of my teamates
    ive never really had a best mate who i could rely on and trust....a true friend
    just get really lonely sometimes

    There are quite a few UKers here. Perhaps someone is close to your area and you could meet up. :hug:

    Hello Sparkz,

    Welcome to SF. Do you have any college/work friends? Maybe you should do an evening course or something:unsure:

    ive recently been given a worker, whos around my age and takes me to the cinema and stuff so i guess im meeting new people

    I'm sorry things have been hard. But keep joining up to clubs and social activities and you'll get there. Sometimes making friends can be hard and an uphill struggle. But you'll get there. I'm always around if you want to talk.
