Awkward things that happen when making friends

By BzAimee 21 Jul 2016

Starting university means you're about to meet a range of new people, some of who will become your best mates!

And while making new friends might be a daunting thought, don't worry! You'll make some amazing memories and eventually laugh at that awkward first meeting... 

  • Being the first to arrive at a flat party someone upstairs invited you to. It'll mean standing on your own for a solid 15 minutes and will teach you that 9pm always means 10pm.

  • Awkwardly hover over group conversations where you don't say anything interesting- or at all. You'll stay there because...FOMO (fear of missing out).

  • Finally mustering up the courage to say something, it'll be 20 minutes after the conversation ended. A result of over-thinking what you should and should not say.

  • Feeling intimidated by the overly confident person
    everyone finds hilarious. They'll notice you gawping in envy, making you feel more out of their league than ever.

  • Being friendly will get misconstrued as flirting. You're just trying to find something to talk about...

  • Biting your tongue when you don't agree with someone's opinion. With home friends, you'd probably start a big debate but it's best to suss out your audience first.

  • Something funny will happen between you and your new friend and you'll bring it up in jest. Sadly, you'll find yourself awkwardly reminding them and wishing the ground would swallow you up.michael scott the office awkward fake smile steve carrell
  • You'll go to lectures together, you'll go out together, yet you'll still keep forgetting your new friend's name. It gets awkward when you go to save their number and have to ask, 'how do you spell your name' to find out. Everybody can spell Josh...
