I'm a 17 year old male, and a senior in high school. I'm sick of being so young, I want to be able to be an adult already. I want to be able to come and go when I want, be able to drink alcohol if I want, not be bitched at for doing things I like, be able to gamble, be able to buy things that requires you to be 18 and older, I want to be able to hook up with girls, and actually have a car with a job, etc. I had a job this summer but I can't do school plus a job, it's too much, so I'm waiting until I graduate in 2017 to get another job. I'm so sick of high school, my junior year I skipped half of so I had to go to summer school so I can still graduate with my class. I absolutely loved summer school, did well in it, and actually learned things. I'm ready for school to start up again so I have something to do during the day. I want to learn, I'm ready for college. I don't have anything friends anymore, by choice. All my old friends were so annoying so I just stopped talking to then. Recently I've only been talking to one kid from my school and I ignore him quite a lot too because he's so dumb and annoying. When we hang out, we barely talk, and all he ever wants to do is play xbox, we can't do anything physical pike basketball, weight lift, etc. which is so boring. I want friends that I can talk to, and have huge conversations with, play sports with, weight life, and so all that stuff which half my old friends wouldn't do, since all they want to do is play boring Xbox. Except, I can't make friends anymore because I'm too shy to talk to new people, and it sucks so bad since I want new friends. I just want to be like 21, in college, with money (since I'll probably be living at home). I'm always with my parents if I'm out so it's not like I can even talk to girls, which is another reason why I want to be older. Recently I've been feeling bad about myself since I have no friends, but it's by choice, so should I really feel bad? What do you guys think?

All things take time, and this is just the (annoying and frustrating) path to the future. I feel like you too, sometimes. I just want to be a little older, have a place of my own, be financially stable, have my own life, happy. But unfortunately, what we're in right now is just the path to that. If you work hard now, you'll make that nice future for yourself happen sooner, too. You'll get there.0

This seems to be the real issue. If only your title would have reflected it. Now everybody thinks you're just wishing for the impossible (wanting to be older).
Have you tried looking for friends on the Internet? By for example, joining a few Facebook groups filed with people who share the same interest? I find that starting a conversation online is easier, less intimidating.0
