Hey @Lonelydaughter , I am sorry to hear about how your daughter has been having some difficulties making friends. It must be really hard for you to watch this happen to her but not be able to intervene and help her make friends. It was really great that you have tried to help her by setting up arrangements. It is a shame that they didn't end up that well! It sounds like you care a lot about your daughter and want the best for her. Do you know of any local youth groups that your daughter might be able to join? They often provide good opportunities for youth to socialise and make new connections.
I have had a look online and found some threads from other users who are also seeking support for their children who had difficulties making friends. Here is one and here is another one. Hopefully you might find the comments or advice to be helpful.

My daughter is 17. She just told me the same thing your daughter told her. She is so sad and I have no idea how to help her. I wish I could connect her with kids going through the same thing. She is such a nice person and just needs a friend.

Hi my 14 year old has the same issue. she feels like her friends Don’t make her a option also. I enrolled her into our church girls group and signed her up for volley ball at our local boys and girls club it seems to help some. I think this is also a thing going on among a lot of teens. Making connections.

We are not a counselling or crisis service and we can't guarantee you'll get a reply, so if you need to talk nowClick here for help
The current time is Sun, 8:14 AM

It looks like you’re visiting us from a country other than Australia.
We are an Australian service and think you’d benefit more from looking up a similar service in your country.
You are welcome to look around the forums, but please don’t make an account or post, as we can’t offer you the help you may need.
Before you go ahead and post, you should know that we remove non-Australian accounts – not because we don’t want to help or connect with you, but because we may not be able to provide you with the service that you require.
