    Just tell your parents, your 17, they can't control everything you do.

    How about you ask your female friends if they want to invite some of their mail friends and then go to the park have a picnic/gathering there during the day?

    The friends I'm with at this school (I moved in yr10), don't have any male friends. One or 2 of them have bfs, but are too fussed about getting As at school to know any boys =\

    It was hard making friends at this school, b/c people invited me out to parties, I had to turn them down, and people gave up on me. So I'm kind of stuck with the friends I'm with...

    It's a good idea, though. Wish I could do something like that
    Perhaps thier boyfriends have male friends...You could suggest an event such as a picnic and tell your friends that thier boyfriends should bring lots of friends too.

    Just curious...

    Why do you want to meet guys so much? Are you actually looking for a boyfriend, or just friends who have similar tastes in things to you?

    I'm certain you could find girls with similar interests to you if you wished, and spend time with them. I presume your parents don't want you to have a boyfriend at your current age, and that you don't want to dissapoint them.

    I find it hard to see how you could separate the two aspects of your interest in boys (or why you should) and please you parents, if you began to spend more time with them.

    I like do chickens fly's advice. in your situation it's best to find girl friends who share same interests with you. go to different places where you can meet different kind of girls. you don't really need to have male friends, im sure there are girls who share your interests.

    but if you want to have a boyfriend then it's never too late to have one and it's better to wait for the correct time and place(in your case we see time hasnt come for you yet)

    best wishes and I must say that you should always appreciate the situation you are in and take the advantage of it in any way you can.

    My parents are very strict as well, they sound a bit like yours. I had a boyfriend once when I was 16 but my mum went into the school (I met him at school) and had a massive meeting with all my teachers telling them to tell me off if they saw me with him. And they did! It was so embarrassing so I broke up with him and was too traumatised to get another. I've just held on through sixth form and I'm waiting 'til uni to make up for lost time. You've only got one more year before university right? It'll fly by and you'll have so much freedom, it'll be great!

    Hey I can see this is a seriously difficult situation, but my advice would be to take a stand and confront them with how ridiculous this whole situation is. I mean what are you going to do when you're 18 and want to go clubbing?

    WTF is wrong with your parents????? Are you asian? No offence but I swear 70% of asian parents are very pathetic. I know because I have a few asian friends and their parents are just so obsessive.

    I go to an all girls school, and have VERY strict parents. I'm 17, and I'm not allowed to go to mixed parties, or talk to boys on the phone/MSN/etc. In primary school, nearly all my friends were boys b/c I'm a gamer, I like to play footie, and I have a boyish sense of humour.

    The trouble is, I don't have any male friends anymore, and never had a boyfriend But when I go to uni, I want to have a bit of experience of a more varied social life! i.e. not just going shopping/cinema with other girls (booooring!)

    Where are the best place to meet guys? Please don't say youth groups/clubs!
    There's a skate park opposite my house, and I love roller blading so I could try there... but my parents can see the park from the windows in our house, and they don't want me talking to boys there!

    Any ideas? :tsr2:
    Well thank God, you are off to uni in September, you will have lots of boys to choose from there.

    maybe get your self a summer job in some place really busy and full of young people like u dunno waitressing at a busy hotel chain, tescos or something.

    if you parents wont let you speak to boys, then how the hell are they going to cope when you are in uni:confused:

    Your parents are totally unreasonable.

    Go to parties. Lie if you have to.
    Look, keeping you secluded like this is really bad for your development as a person. I was isolated from male contact for a lot of my teenage years (accidentally, really) and it turned me into somewhat of a sociopath, it took me a long time to learn to see boys as normal people and not some kind of objects.

    Tell them if you don't have any boys as friends, you won't know what they're like and it'll be easier for them to 'take advantage of you' when you're at uni. Tell them they're making you vulnerable.

    That kind of rubbish.

    Well it isn't natural, and is completely unfair. Be very careful when you do start going out with lads though, because a lot of people will recognise your inexperience and take advantage.

    Is there any way you could get a saturday job or something? They tend to really help with making new friends, especially guys.
    Also I realise you don't want to involve your friends, but having a big end of year party or something with your friends, their boyfriends (and their friends) and any guys your friends do happen to know. And just talk to guys.
    I realise it must be very hard in your situation, but the skate park idea was good, is there no way you could be over there without your parents seeing, like when they're out or at work?

    Your parents would actually disown you for being friends with a guy?

    Pfft. All mouth and no trousers, probably. Who could actually disown their own child for something so trivial?!

    I can't believe they are letting you go to uni but won't let you befriend guys. As somebody else said, it is normal to socialise with girls and boys.

    Tell them that being friends with a guy does not mean you will sleep around!! Say you are insulted that they are thinking along those lines..

    They can't keep you in a bubble!

    EDIT: I wouldn't go to the pub alone, guys will get allsorts of ideas and you'll be at your most vulnerable. Take a friend?
