Are there any teens on this site?

I ask this because I am a 17 year old frustrated by her old habits. It's summer and I can admit to having many idle days sitting in front of my computer, bored. So bored as I am, I often resort to FB (facebook), which as great as it CAN be, ends up becoming a forum for complaints, beauty affirmation, and simply things that aren't that fulfilling.

Are there any teens on this site that share the same disappointment. I wish FB was more of a place where I could share my ideas with friends...

That's why I love this site, but I just have to know how many teens are cruising around this site?

  • Aug 1 2012: I think if you are genuinely interested in knowledge and mental growth than you will unconsciously attract people and situations that complement your personality and temperament. However, in the event that someone really doesn't have many "outlets" for their mind or people to share their ideas with, they can look forward to attending college where people tend to attract others like themselves and then if you really are an intellectual, you will likely meet other like minded people.
