hi, I'm 17 years old and I am independent but lately I am feeling down. all of my friends have boyfriends that like them and I see them together and it makes me feel upset knowing I don't have anyone. I feel like there is no one that looks at me like that and will. I just came back from a party and my friends were there and they were with there boyfriends and I was sitting with no one. they were talking about there plans for tomorrow and there double dates the next weekend. I feel so depressed. what am I suppose to do, I feel alone.

aww honey, I know how you feel. It seems like everyone is in a relationship except you and that you'll be alone forever without love. Let me just say that there is someone out there for everyone and that love happens when you least expect it. That sounds so cliche and corny but actually its true. I would know, I've been there and I've had some great relationships. But through those relationships and break-ups, I've learned to appreciate being single. Being able to do whatever you want, check out whomever you want...the list is endless. Plus relationships, while they may provide a facade of lovey-dovey crap, come with baggage. Fights, trust issues, cheating. Plus being in a relationship put's you in a totally different state of mind and can be a distraction. Don't get me wrong, I like being in relationships but I've learned to appreciate being single as well. You don't need a man to make you happy. Loving yourself and your independence is what happiness is derived from. Hang in there girl, your time will come. Until then, appreciate living the single life, as hard as it may be at times. Hope this helps :)1
