Default "Popularity" beyond high school

I'm in my second year of community college and I still live with my parents. I'm just kind of struggling with feeling like everyone I used to be friends with has either moved or made new friends, etc. And I'm feeling like I'm back in high school all over again, having to fight to stay included within groups of friends. I'm very happy with the friends I see on a regular basis but I suppose I don't feel as close to them as I would like to feel with a good group of friends. It worsens when I log into Facebook and I see other people with numerous photos of themselves and their friends having a grand time. I'm working on trying to not compare myself with others but it's really difficult for me. I'm not really sure if I'm asking for advice on the situation or how to find friends that I actually feel a connection with. Any thoughts would be highly appreciated!

Finding friends of a genuine connection is really a global challenge, so please do not feel like you are the only one. Myself, including my sisters and my husband, have all went through the experience you are going through now.

What interests you? If you like books, maybe they have a book club at your college? It's all about interests and finding people along those interests.

Well I'm transferring to a University next year so hopefully that will contribute to building quality friendships. It's nice to know that I am not alone in this though. I just feel guilty about saying I will look forward to making new friends next year and not doing much about it right now.

Songbird, Just hang in there! Hopefully you'll meet a few people along the way. I didn't enjoy college at times either, I also found it abit high schoolish myself. So completely understand.
