    I'm 16 and go to a fully boarding school. I'm fairly popular but don't go to the parties of friends as i live really far away, so not really in that group. I've found i'm struggling to meet people my age and make new friends. I would like a nice friendship circle outside school and obviously i'm 16 and feeling urges (lol), a girlfriend if it leads to that. I take care of myself well with dieting and the gym but i really just lack a place to meet people. I know people say like "clubs" but what kind of clubs do you mean? I'm in london and have no idea what these "clubs" are for 16 year olds. The only social things i get really are one off friends when i'm on holiday and they are never more than just flings as luckily girls find me attractive, otherwise i probably wouldn't have done anything.

    Summary: 16, want friends outside boarding school, where to find them?

    Hey, try doing stuff like cadets and stuff. I'm also trying to find more friends because I don't really speak to loads of people.
