I have 2 daughters. They are 18 and 16 and are hardly ever home anymore. My 18 year old is constantly at her boyfriend' s apartment (he is 19, lives with parents, no job, not in school) and my 16 year old spends all her time with her friends and their families. I feel useless and no longer needed. :( How do i get past this feeling?

Well you can still give your 16yo a curfew and expect her home. The 18yo, not so much since she is an adult.
Have you actually spoken to your children? Your 16yo is your responsibility until she turns 18 so she still needs to live by your rules. You are obviously letting her spend all her time with her friends though.
