There are many ways to make a stroke to the selection. First one is the
way to use Stroke selection. The other one is:

1. Make a selection.
2. Fill it with the color you want the border to be
3. Go <image>->Selection->Shrink and in that dialog shrink with the 1px
if the border is going to be 1px in size.
4. Ctrl+K or <image>->Edit->Clear

This will clear the rest of the color out in the middle of the selection
and you should have a border. Don't know if this is what you want
