I am 18, I am a senior in high school, I do well at school but am laid back. I have few friends but very good friends who appreciate me for who I am, but I am alone.

I have never been able to get to know a girl personally, I just want a friend, a girl to talk to about life, ambitions, thoughts, ideas, and to do the things I enjoy with.

Someone to share life's experiences with.

I am not looking for someone perfect, every one has flaws I understand.

But how come I treat every one with kindness supporting living under Karma, but I can never talk to a girl about more than just school. I am afraid, but I am not, I want, but I cant. Why?

There are girls at my school who I admire and would love to get to know better, but why can't I?

Sometimes I think that they look at me weird sometimes. I am not the traditional highschooler always. I love classical music, and folk, I appreciate great literature and philosophy, and enjoy working with my hands, hiking, XC skiing, and biking.

But I am alone. I just need some help.

Well, I'm sure you could answer all those questions you posed yourself with a little reflection (assuming they are not rhetorical) [Smile]

You listed some interests; chances are there are clubs (inside and outside of your school) for XC skiing or philosophy, so that would be a good place to start in meeting people with common interests.

If you're looking for a friend, I can tell you that female friends and male friends aren't all that different. I wouldn't advise looking for dates right off the bat; that puts pressure on you and the other person to romantically 'click' right off. And, whether or not you go to college, there is social life after highschool.
