Right. "Friends" on Facebook are rarely genuine friends - and not likely to rush round when you're in trouble or difficulties.
I think it's sad that so many people seem to assume that enjoying oneself MUST involve "going out" ; that spending time at home with yourself, or one or a few genuine friends, is somehow worthless, and always trumped by going to an expensive and noisy club and pretending to be Having Fun.
At no age is "partying" a necessary or particularly worthwhile activity. One doesn't really need to "go out" to have friends - real friends are usually formed at work, at school, taking part in worthwhile activities related to sport, hobbies, maybe even charitable work.
How do you make a real friend at a club where you can't hear whatever you're shouting at each other ?
Sounds like you linked up with this guy too young, not merely the drinking age thing, but before either of you were yet ready for a real emotional or even friendly relationship. And from the sound of it, you are growing up, and he isn't. Some guys seem to grow Down, rather than up.
I wonder why you're living with this boy, who seems to use you as a convenience, rather than noticeably caring about you, or your feelings or needs.
