It's been said many times already, but there are lots of people that are older than you that play Pokemon, just in this community alone. So you shouldn't feel alone at all, and hopefully you find a lot of new friends here. :)
But like Sydian said, this forum is more for general questions about the forum itself, so I'm going to have to lock this thread. Feel free to introduce yourself to the community in the Welcome Lounge forum though!
