I just was annoyed about how it seems like a lot of people in both school and Snafu has that the subject to talk about and I don't. Maybe it's because of late puberty and relationships still bug me. I think I well grow out of it and allow it to happen, when the time comes when it does happen.
You can only talk about it if you have something to talk about. Plenty of others are in a boat like yours, and older. Also you probably shouldn't just wait for it to happen. You're inevitably going to deal with awkward and cringey situations as you make your first romantic/sexual advances. High school is the safest place to do it. College, it's okay to start but it's kind of late to learn all of that, but still an open environment if you try. Once you get out then pickings become scarce instantaneously, you have to actually meet people rather than having them sit next to you in class with a good excuse to interact.
You might have a girl fall into your lap, but you are a guy, and since you seem to be worrying about the issue, you should try to put yourself out there. Definitely do not fall into the crush trap. What I mean by that is don't fixated on a particular girl, waiting months or even years before confessing your attraction. Fancy a girl? Start a conversation, be upfront, she says no you move on. You'll quickly find a nice girl through the numbers game alone, but rejection will suck, but it won't matter once you find someone. If you fixate on a girl, then the possibility of rejection will only grow worse and worse, so you may never even ask her out and then she gets a boyfriend while you spent time doing nothing.
Also @ what others are saying, based on what he's saying he definitely doesn't seem like the type who's going to throw away his future chasing girls. High school is a place to learn not only academically, but socially. There are very few other social learning grounds like it available. You can always learn from a book later, but right now's the best time he has to practice talking to girls. There are so many people who focus on their studies then are utterly clueless on how to interact with the opposite sex once school's all said and done with. It's actually a really big problem in places like Japan and South Korea. You guys know what high school is like. Most of it is busy work, not something that's actually challenging. He doesn't need to spend hours hitting the books. He has the time to talk to girls and get a girlfriend.
