I don't have many friends. I just moved to another country a year ago, and its hard. I'm not so close to the people at my school. I made some friends through a hobby, but 2 of my guy friends starting liking me and i didn't reciprocate their feelings and they stopped talking to me. I get depressed. Maybe I don't go out much to clubs and bars because I don't drink alcohol and its expensive. Is there something i should do different?

It's actually ok if you have few REAL friends because a lot of people actually have very few REAL friends. While most of us may seem to be surrounded by "friends", they are not real friends that will be with you no matter what happens. I suggest you be yourself. Do and enjoy the things that you like, and basically have a very good disposition in life. People are drawn to real people and are not afraid of being who they are. You'll see. People will want to talk and hang out with you. Plus, it's always nice to have a smile. Be happy always.

you shouldn't have to go to bars to have a friendship. you are better off not going. just give it time and try to be friendly to others. you still have time to make friends.
