I’m at a new school and I haven’t made a friend. Everyone avoids me like I’m going to attack them. When I started my old school, everyone liked me on the first day. At the new school, it’s been a week and I know no one. Everyone already has their little groups of friends and it’s really clique-y and I don’t know what to do.
In the mean time, ask people questions, say “Hi” as faces become familiar, and don’t freak out if you don’t have a cell phone full of friends at the end of the first month or two. You’re in a unique position to make friends who really mean something to you instead of falling into the arms of the first clique who offers you a seat at their lunch table.
Also, I’m pretty sure there is one person in one of your classes who isn’t thinking that you’re going to attack her (although, I have a hard time believing anyone does). It’s time for you to approach her! Ask her about a homework assignment or her opinion on something. Striking up a conversation will open the door to friendship. Which reminds me, be open, and the friends will come.
