I graduated early, so I'm 17 and in

I graduated early, so I'm 17 and in college. I haven't made any friends so far, I'm too nervous to ask the other students for help when I'm stuck, and I feel so scared and lonely. I only have two friends in all and I never see them because they're still in high school. I want to make friends or even get out and try to date, but I can't bring myself to talk to people at school because I feel like even if they grow fond of me, they won't want to be my friend if they find out I'm at least a year younger than them or they'll write me off as naive and "adorable" and treat me like a pet instead of a friend. I especially am afraid of trying to date for the same reasons on a higher scale.
Every day, I see everyone else talking to each other and making new friends in the class but I'm always alone and watching from the sidelines. I just wish I had at least one friend, someone to talk to at school, even if it's just, "Hey, how are you? Did you have trouble with the English homework? So what are you doing this weekend?"

  • by the way iam the guy who left the last comment. Iam 18 and going into second year collage, i hate collage too. In highschool i knew everyone and partied all the time but in univeristy i have friends for the sake of having friends. I think they're all a******* so never comprimise yourself....

  • hey try being a little confident, dont make big talk at the start, build on little talk and remarks and not make it seem a big deal. Dont let people know ur desparate and just be confident even if you're not. Just act...

  • ^ Not 18 yet.

  • develope a drinking problem

  • don't even mention that you're younger than them!

    definitely join at least one club, that's how you make friends in college!

  • Are there any clubs you find interesting? They all joined because they share the interest, and were just like you. Nearly EVERYBODY was new and without friends when they started college too.
    My wife was 17 while at collage. I was the first one to talk to her in a drawing class. It took a year and a half before we actually were romantically interested in each other.

  • Stop being a nub and start being naturally awesome. It worked for me.
