a game of 'driftwood'

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
:banghead: my life has never been good on the side of friends. i have 3 friends at the moment. is it possible to feel even more lonely?
The most thing about my predicament is 1) i am slowly drifting away from my bff to try and get into the 'cool crowd' and 2) soon i'll be going to a secondary school where NO ONE FROM MY SCHOOL IS GOING.
Should i let myself drift away from her? any tips on being more popular?

    You don't need a lot of friends to not feel lonely. Many people will tell you that the most lonely you will ever feel is while being in a relationship with someone you do not love.

    Neglecting your best friend to be part of a "cool crowd" is not only a pretty asshole-ish thing to do, it is also a sure fire way to increase your loneliness.

    I didn't change school, but I was the only guy in my class who took spanish (instead of french), back in my school day, which meant I got into a whole new class. I made a lot of new friends that way.

    I wasn't part of the coolest crowd in school, but I realize now, that I am surrounded by very cool people, and the cool people from school are nowadays losers.

    ik what you mean, but for me the 'cool–er crowd' looks as if it's inviting me in, but not my bff. i want and mentally need more friends..
