Is it normal that I can't relate to people my age?

Ever since I was a child, I had trouble relating to people my age. I always made friends and always talked to others, but never felt like I actually had anything in common with anyone and could never really relate. I never had a real close friend and never been in a ralationship.
Its only recently that I realized this. I am tired of pretending I am like others because I am not. I am becoming more and more detatched from others and even get mad when my friends call. Im am wondering if this is normal and if it will get better with time.

Very normal. Our generation is annoying. Sluts and jerks is all they are. I'm sick of them too. Luckily I have tolerable, book reading, indie-loving friends who I enjoy being around. Being anti-social is very common. And I often stay home and make excuses to not hang out with people. I often complain to my friends about how I hate people haha

Firstly... how old are you?

At about 13-15 I felt mostly that way and then I kind of found myself and was more comfortable.

I embraced who I was with confidence (but not aggression, that's a sure way to alienate yourself) and I think you'll feel good over time being yourself.

I don't know if it'll get better but where I live there are loads of different types of people and nobody particularly judges or cares anymore.

p.s. My social group is 17-18 so... if that's anything to go by?

"but not aggression, that's a sure way to alienate yourself" i like this, ive found it to be true too, however i find it frustrating sometimes to be an outsider trying to establish oneself in a group when you can't relate, and have to wait for an opportunity rather than make the assertion to impose yourself on a group, if that makes sense

I feel the same. All of my friends want to hang out all the time and talk about really annoying things. Finally they understand I only want them around so I don't get bored, and they dont bug me and text me as much.

I know people my age get on my nerves to, very few do I feel like I can connect with because they talk about dumb things that are a slightly above high school level.They more immature than kids and I'm like dude your 24 years old and act ridiculous and they seemed to not get it.
