Heyy!

I was actually super excited to turn 18, and even more so for 19. What's got you so down about it? Look at it this way, you have pretty well total legal control of all your stuff. If you're worried about having to grow up, you don't have to become totally responsible overnight, we all grow up at our own pace.

I hope you have an awesome birthday!

Try to look at it from a positive standpoint, there's a lot more you can do legally now. :-P

Heck no, you're still plenty young! If there are things you still want to do, I would suggest making a list, and doing as many as you can? Just because you're not a teenager doesn't mean you still can't experience those things you think you missed.

I can't say anything about your boyfriend's age, becasue I don't know it. Probably 16-17? But I'm sure that things will be just fine! You certainly so deserve a good birthday so, I'm glad you'll try

Yeah i guess you're right but it just doesn't feel right i feel like i should still be underage i don't feel ready to be an adult :/ and my boyfriend is 16 so its pretty legal for us to be together in my state but it still sucks.

i know people who have felt really sad about turning 18, its probably because you are now a legal adult and have to take care of yourself. but dont get freaked out because you will do just fine!!!! your parents will still be there to help you when you fall and will be there to help because thats what parents do! good luck =]
