I just entered high school and feel like I have no friends... Even though I know I do?

I recently just entered High School and I've been getting good grades, not getting into trouble ans so far those aspects of high school have been great.

However i feel like i have no friends, even though i do.

I feel this way because i came from a very small middle school. (we only had 55 students in my entire grade and of the 55 only about 30ish attend the high school i go to now)

I'm still close friends with many students but i feel like their breaking away and finding new people. And i want to break away and find new people too.

I made about two new friends but others from my middle school are walking with someone new in the halls every time I see them.

That makes me very depressed because i feel like everyone else is meeting new people and im not.

So heres my question: How can I stop being depressed about my lack of friends and make some new friends?

And has anyone else ever felt this way during their freshman year?

You need to remember that when everyone enters highschool, they're in the same situation as you! Just relax, be friendly to everyone, and be outgoing. Talk to the people in your class and perhaps ask them if you can eat lunch with them. If you are really having trouble with this, ask one of your close friends to help. He/she introduce you to new friends that he/she has made and you'll eventually find more friends that way.

Also, join as many clubs or sport teams as you can! That's a sure way to meet new people who have the same interests as you!!

Don't worry! I'm in the same predicament as you. Many of my middle school buddies are off in some other high school and you can say i'm pretty much a social hermit at this point. I'd usually go around the school, just saying hi to random people. Not much in the way of friends, but I've made a lot of acquaintances.
Our freshman class consists of over 700 students; even in large classes it's pretty hard to make friends.

Just ask your freinds if they really do like you and wants to be your freinds because maybe your not sure of yourself so that could be the answer to your problem

Talk to other people, if people you don't know aren't talking to you, maybe they feel the same way and Don't know how to approach you, talk to them first and before you know it you will be walking down the hall with someone new! :)

It's okay, it passes. I felt like that too, at first, but now I walk down the hallway and have to say hi to practically everyone.
