I've never had a boyfriend before. I just feel like I am too mature for guys my age and can't relate to then at all. They like partying, smoking weed and sex, but I'm looking for an actual relationship. I like painting and art, hiking, nature, meditation, listening to grunge music. No one has the same interests as me. Except for this one guy who is and amazing painter, and lives john Lennon and Jimi Hendrix just like me. But I'm too shy to talk to him. I'm pretty introverted and would rather spend time by myself with my thoughts and art. I don't see the fun or benefit in partying until you're sick. I feel like such an outcast. I'm not though, I have friends but they don't really know the real me. I think I'm such a freak and I don't know what to do. I know I'm young and shouldn't be worrying about this, but I feel like everyone has been in a relationship but me. I feel like something is wrong with me. I guess I'll just wait until the right guy comes around...

Welcome to reality. You're in high school, so it may seem like everyone around you is infatuated with relationships, but that will all go away once everyone grows up.
I didn't have a boyfriend until I was 21. I had such self esteem issues in high school because I felt like no one liked me. I was attractive, but shy and hated myself.
Then I went to college and realized nobody cares about the drama of high school. What's more: a lot of people have never been in a relationship and feel the same way.
Long story short: don't be so hard on yourself. What you're going through is normal.3
