So this is gonna be a little bit of a rant. Lil’ bit angry. Lil’ bit sad.

I always say you don’t need strangers shouting at you to feel good about yourself 😉
But seriously, the way you feel is completely understandable. When I was younger–even though it’s disrespectful–I liked the attention I received. It’s completely natural.
One other thing though (and I’d be interested in hearing y’alls thoughts on this) I don’t think it’s disrespectful if a man just says something like “you’re beautiful!” or whatever.
But anyway, I don’t respond and rarely even look up when someone whistles or shouts. I’m not a puppy 🙂
And honestly, be thankful that strange men are not looking at you in a sexual way. You’re only 15, that’s very young.

Like AdventureGirl said, they’re probably not catcalling you if you look young for your age.
You’re not missing out on anything 😆 There’s one street near my neighborhood where I have been catcalled more than once, only ever by much older men (I mean much older than me). Trust me, there’s nothing nice about a car full of 30-40-year- old men shouting at you, especially when you’re walking alone and nobody else is on the street. I honestly don’t know what it is about that particular street, but I’m always a bit on edge when I’m walking/biking there..
