I'm 15. I'm allowed to date. My mom trusts me. I feel like I have an empty void that needs to be filled. I love my family and family love is a wonderful thing and the most important thing. But I feel like the love I want is a different kind. I'm not that pretty. I have acne and I'm a bit pudgy and maybe my low self confidence is why I need attention but I just want someone. I need someone. Is that wrong? At my age? And I don't mean in a sexual way (I'm waiting until marriage) I mean I want to mean the world to someone.

I don't think wanting someone is a bad thing; I think it's in all human nature, both male and female, to want affection! Love is a bond that all humans crave; it's special and unique!
However, I don't believe rushing into a relationship is a good idea either! You don't want to train yourself to base your self-worth on the affection of another person. Knowing that somebody is attracted to you is, of course, a confidence-booster, though it's not healthy to become dependent on that as the only measure of your self-worth! You are an important, wonderful human-being, and you owe yourself the self-respect to know that you are not just an accessory to another person!
I don't mean to be negative, haha, it's just that your post seems unsure, and I don't want you undermining yourself! Relationships aren't a bad thing by any means, and like I said, are definitely a confidence-booster. It's fine to want love and affection! But just make sure that you can carry yourself, too!1
