    I'm fifteen and have never had a real boyfriend. It drives me crazy. It sucks to see most of your friends dating and no matter what you try you are still alone. Always alone.

    I'm a bit of a loner. Grew up as an only child for eleven years so I figured out how to entertain myself. Sure I like people, but I'm not afraid to do things alone as well.
