you usually come with a lot more advice thant that dm
LOL. I was pressed for time. I'll try again.
OP, I'm going to guess that you don't make friends easily. Don't feel bad. The truth is that until modernization and the industrial revolution, people interacted socially with mostly people they grew up with. This is why it was a friendlier time. Now a days, we're contantly forced into social situations with total strangers. Not everyone is an extrovert. Not everyone is outgoing. Media leads us to believe that you're SUPPOSED to be extroverted as if something is wrong with you. The world got along just fine for centuries with people who only had a handful of friends and fam that they grew up with. Don't feel bad about being shy. Don't feel bad for not being as social as others.
Step 1. Be comfortable with yourself. Assess who you are. Are you awkward? Are you quiet? Aight, that's who you are. Be that and be ok with it. People might say, "you don't talk much." Or antagonize with "cat got your tongue?" Just say you're just a quiet person. That's just your style.
Step 2. If you're shy, the easiest way to get to know people is through common interests. That's why I say join a club. I'm sure your college has pleny to choose from. And if there's nothing that is a current interest, find one that MIGHT be interesting and join that one. You might learn something new and you'll make friends the easy way. Then those friends may introduce you to more. From there, you should build enough social confidence to make other friends easier.
Hope that helps.
Don't be depressed. Sometimes that is a chemical imbalance, sometimes it's a choice. And doing enjoyable things (especially physical activity) produces chemicals that will balance you out without pills. I know this cuz I been through it.
Good luck homie.
