Okay I don't really know how to explain this.  I have zero attraction to boys.  I can talk with them just fine, and have several boy friends (not boyfriends).  But I have no real emotions around them, it's just like talking to another girl. 
 
I'm seventeen, when I was 11 - 12ish I had a minor crush on a "cute" boy in band, but nothing big.  Since then, nothing.  Is this normal?  I hear so many stories about boy and girl friends together and apart and etc. and all my friends are always fooling around together -- I guess I just don't see the point of all that. 
 
Is there anybody else like that out there?  Girls who don't care about boys, or boys who don't care about girls?  Or am I just a little different?

I don't think you're weird. You probably just haven't found the right guy. When you meet him, you'll be attracted to him. It just might be a while. Don't fret!

I don't think thats entirely true see i have attration to both but if you have no attraction to boys then you probly lean towards girls and i almost like you. I have a girlfriend and i love her. Its nothing to be ashamed about.

To many possibilities to explain this, honestly if it hinders you living your life then see a proffessional. But beyond that I can only say you're not weird, just unique.

O.O
 
Ummm.  Well, thanks for the replies everyone.  I don't think I'm attracted to girls, actually I can't stand really girly girls, but .......  lol i don't know what to say. 
 
And CTS207 the situation doesn't hinder me at all, I just wondered if anyone else was like that and had no romantic attraction to the opposite s.ex. 
 
I guess I should have gone farther and said toward either s.ex.  :P 
 
xD Thanks everyone for replying.  I guess I'll just wait then.  There's nothing wrong with that.  :)
