Are you ready for a long post guys?
Right well I have always been good. Been good and school/college, had a good attitude - never went through the terrible teens, have always been helpful around the house, ect.
This of course has made my parents proud of me.
I'm 17 years old and I have no social life, I never go out with friends or anythign like that.
This is not due to my parents, I choose to stay in as they will let me but I feel like if I go out roud town and get drunk I will dissapoint them. I don't know why but i feel like to them i wont be "perfect" any more, and there is nothing more that I value than their opinions and respect.
I have a really good relationship with my parents.
The thing is now I kinda want to go out at night. I love looking at peoples facebook picture when they go out, it just looks like they have so much fun, and then i see myself sat on here night after night doing nothing.
I've always known right from wrong but going out round town feels "wrong" to do it in a way.
Another thing is, when i break the tip of the iceburg off, i have no one to go out with. Most of my friends are like myself and don't go out partying and then i have other friends who go out every night getting drunk. I just want someone to go out with who is a mixture of the 2, so i can enjoy myself.
I really need to do this for myself as i need to be come more independant as i'm 18 in 5 weeks. Plus i feel sad that i've never kissed a guy or had a real boy friend. I know thats not the be all and end all of it but i just feel like im missing out.
Any ideas how to take the first step?
Sorry if it's not clear, it makes sense to me in my head...just i can't explain it.

go out, get drunk, disappoint your parents, repeat.
your parents will stop being disappointed in you after the third time, trust me.

I was like you until about a year ago, I turned 18 in August. Always was good, worked hard, did really well in school and didn't go out drinking etc.
Then I started going out and getting drunk and I'm so glad I did. I can still work hard and do well in school, but I have a lot more fun.
Just go out with the friends who drink - just because they do it, doesn't mean you have to as well. A girl in my group doesn't drink but she still comes out with us and always has a good time, usually laughing at the rest of us making fools of ourselves.

There are other ways to socialise other than drinking you know?
Although drinking when you're out on friday/saturday is a lot more fun
Try it? Stop worrying about what your parents think for once
