I am a 20 year old college student going into my 3rd year. I have always had trouble makin friends, never really knew how to make em. I also don't really know how to talk to girls either. When I do end up in social circles each time the group comes of as indifferent to me each time. There is this one group i tried to make friends with for the first two years of college, i did go to parties with them, i did hang out them too, as they lived on the same floor at the dorms. Each time it felt like a total waste of time though.
The group doesn't include me at all. They don't invite me out, i always have to tag along or keep after them just to know their plans. They don't talk to me unless maybe I talk to them but they don't seem to show any interest in talking.
Its always them talking to each other with me on the sidelines. I am just that one guy who shows up and they just seem to tolerate me.
This situation happens everytime i try to make friends. My main problem I think in social life is being included. What frustrated me alot was another guy came along and made friends with that group instantly. They just started including that guy not long after they met him as if he was a part of the group for years.
I figured i needed to find another group of friends, so I tried becomin a part of 3 groups of friends and they show little to no interest in having me around.
Maybe i am not interesting enough, i really never had much going on so far so i dont have much cool stories to tell.
Any suggestions to fix this? What are some ways that i can be more interesting to talk to?
I know i will be told that it takes PRACTICE to get a social life, but how does one do that?
