Awkward things that happen when making friends...

By BzAimee 31 Aug 2018

Starting university means you're about to meet a whole new group of people. Some of them might even become your best mates...


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

Awkwardly hovering over group conversations where you don't say anything interesting - or anything at all. You'll stay there to avoid #FOMO though.

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

Laughing at jokes when you've completely zoned out because everyone else did. This will be followed wondering if they're laughing at you.

You get excited for one-on-one time to help form real friendships, yet struggle to find one single conversation topic.

You won't always agree with people but will bite your tongue anyway. With home friends, you'd probably start a big debate but it's best to suss out your audience first.

You go to lectures together, you go out together, yet still keep forgetting their name. It gets awkward when you go to save their number and have to ask, 'how do you spell your name again?' to find out. Becuase, everybody can spell Josh...
