Hey, so I'm 16 and I've never had a boyfriend, never had alcohol (I've tried it but I didn't like it that much) and I don't smoke, which in my eyes is totally normal.
however it is 2016 and all of my friends and people in my year have all been in a relationship, have parties with alcohol and smoke. Once again this doesn't bother me.
But I do occasionally feel as though I'm missing out, all my friends keep telling me I need to get a boyfriend and that I'm "so pretty" how have I not had a boyfriend etc etc
I did have a crush on a boy in my year, and I'm very shy so I never really spoke to him but one day I built up the confidence and told him I liked him... He basically replied with "who are you" even though we had lightly spoken in class. So in other words rejection.
why am I single? I try to be more confident but I keep getting pushed down and I get upset when all of my friends basically make fun of me for never been kissed or been on a date...

Because you live in the real world you clearly haven't been brought up to be a weed smoking slut. You are most likely the kind of girl that will have fun at a later age maybe at university or college. Just make sure when you get to college or university you take part in party's etc etc. As you grow older those are the luxuries you will love. also can you help me on my question please www.girlsaskguys.com/.../q1978336-girl-who-showed-signs-blocked-me1

Oh my god, no! D: Girl, you are 16! I understand that the culture is different now that it's 2016, and I shockingly see photos of 16 year old girls doing and looking like they are my age, but the thing is; I'm gonna sound cliche now, but you will get loads of time to do all that later!
When I see girls at the age 16 now I think that they are children. And when I look back at when I was 16, I know that I was a kid.
Don't rush smoking, drinking and hooking up because it will be chances to do that for the rest of your life.
What I think, if I can get a little deep here, is that your friends is gonna be so worn out from all the party and sex when they are about 18 or 19 (when the best party years usually start), and they are going to settle down with their dirty high school sweetheart and have a baby by the age of 21 because there isn't anything else to be excited about anymore. But you can be fresh, ready for your young adult life and do it at your own pace! Anyways, later on, boys will much more admire girls who aren't so.. "used up and dead inside" sorry for the dark expression. ANyways, don't rush anything :) Hugs1
