I understand what you mean about talking to someone your own age. I am lucky to have some really good friends my own age who I can bounce off... and in return they bounce off me. As Shy said, true friends will listen (although they may not understand and may ask questions sometimes if they dont understand). Try talking to your friends... if they get bored and wander off, what have you lost? They are not friends obviously. Also, are there youth support groups in your area? That might be something to consider as well... talking to people that are in the same boat as you are... they will understand better than anyone.
