    My closest friends seem so far away, and they seem to be replacing me with other people. Please help

    Make an action plan:

    1: Figure out what your passions / hobbies are.
    2: Look up where you can meetup with like minded people.
    3: Take action: Meet those people.
    4: Make them as friends.
    5: Meet friends of their friends.

    Another solution would be to just accept his choice, he is human, and friendship is not a contract. It will end and there will come new people in your life.
    So try to feel the feeling of being alone. Not judging it, not fighting, not surrendering. Just accepting and being okay with it.

    Keep it up brother!
  3. What most people don’t realise is that people are everywhere. The reason why a lot of people often keep saying that they don’t meet anyone is because they are just not used to socialising with random strangers when they are out and about. Every time you talk to someone you open up doors which lead to further opportunities.

    Work on your social skills and then just go out there and do approaches talk to everyone don’t filter by looks or age or gender. Because life will bring things into your life when you least expect it. For example, you talk to this old guy and this hot girl is watching your conversation and then you talk to her next and she’s really open to it because she has seen you as this friendly social butterfly.

    So who cares if your friends are making new friends that is what you are supposed to be doing as well, expanding your social circle. Don’t sit in a corner and feel sorry for yourself because you are lonely go out there and do something about.

    Action = results.

    Absolutely. I have had this happen actually so I can attest to how well this works. She actually ignored me to begin with and then heard me chatting and then was open to saying hello and just passing the time of day with me. Not a massive conversation but a conversation all the same.

    Might help to know that there are many others in exactly the same situation, OP!

    Take everyone's suggestions, but also take whatever comfort you can in that EVERYONE at your age feels like an outsider and lonely. It's going to get better as you grow older. Your body is in major transition and transformation, and your feelings are going round and round and round and round.

    Hang in there. When you look back on this period, you will be able to say to yourself, "Man, that was a shitty time in my life, and I never have to go back!"

    You're with friends now. Take that strength, and go find some more friends. You're doing just fine.
