I know you are all going to say "go out and join a new club and make friends!" but My highschool from grade 9-12 has just over 100 people. I grew up with basically everybody since we were babies. We are from small communities and everyone knows everyone. I just recently found out my "friends" don't actually like me and have been using me." So this group of "friends" you could say we are on the lower end of popularity. 90% of my school drinks, parties, and does D r u gs on a regular basis and I deffinately don't want to get into that. I have my boyfriend but out of 10 classes in the year, we have 1 together and he needs to spend time with others, and not just me. Im not good being alone, im socially awkward, so idk what to do :/
Will you survive ? Yes, but it's gonna suck. I went through all middle school with pretty much no friends, worst years of my life. Just make little friends in your classes, honestly the only way to do it though is to step out of your comfort zone. You don't have to do anything crazy but just start out with just complimenting someone on something and try to start small talk about it. It'll be hard and uncomfortable at first, but you'll get used to it and it'll get easier. Being awkward is terrible, I know.
I had one friend i could count on and the rest of people i talked to where just people i joked with in class.
