Why Can't I Find a Boyfriend My Own Age?

It always seems hard for me to get a boyfriend on my own. The only way I was in relationships before was because a mutual friend introduced us. And when I'm around my friends I see them all get attention from guys but me. Well from guys our age. It seems that the only guys that try to talk to me are guys in their 30s or higher trying to get me at the mall or into their cars. Why can't I get a guy my age to talk to me? Why can't I get a boyfriend? Why do I only get attention from older guys?
Side Note: I'm 17. My mom said that because I have curves I look older sometimes, but my friends actually do dress older and guys our age still talk to them.
