I know how you feel (though I just finished year 10) It was like that for me.
I know it sounds corny and superficial but just be yourself and you will find someone who you
will connect to. Most of these couples are only little temporary things done on the spare of the moment.
And yes, I know how you feel about stereotypes..But again..Be yourself! Trust me, you feel much better!
I am 16, for example, and I still run around school like an idiot singing and dancing (mostly to Hairspray
) but I know when I've gone too far and it isn't immature (though it may sound like it) - I know where I'm at in life and [so far] where I want to go in the near future.
I know it sounds stupid, but being yourself in these times is the best, and then you know when you find friends that they are there because they like you for you and not for someone you're trying to be.
