@sophiarose, that guy sounds like a real douche, hopefully you'll find someone who respects you
@PlasticGlowStars, don't give up on finding your happy ending, it's out there, it just might take time to find it

I'm single because my girlfriend broke up with me 2 months ago, after one year, she gave me a promise ring 1 month before she broke up with me. In hindsight it was probably good for me, she lied to me on multiple occasions, and might have started to show signs related to alcohol addiction(I hope I'm wrong about that one). I'm gonna be single until I find somebody that I feel I can trust, and that can trust me.

Its harder to actually find someone fascinating, especially once standards start colliding where the prospect of dating a non-nerd hinders you. The awesome ones are taken :p

Because I like to spend my free time in my bedroom, I am shy, and I lack confidence.

I mean there's probably more than that but that's it in a nutshell.

Had a relationship once, boy do I regret it big time. I'm single because 1) I've got social skills equivalent to a piece of stale bread, 2) I am rarely outside my room, I draw and watch stuff all day long. 3) I'm always being seen as creepy and stuff. :(

Oh boy this is going to be fun! Besides a few online relationships I never was with anyone so first and foremost I am really clueless to the whole dating thing. Also I am really shy and have low self esteem. I feel like I am a really boring person and that people can do way better than me. Now I know that isn't true and I have come a long way but those thoughts still nag at me sometimes. Physically I am far from ideal. I'm not hideous or anything just fat and short. I've been working on my weight but sadly I'm only 5'3 (152 cm) and there isn't anyway to change that. Facial features are normal thankfully. My biggest drawbacks and problems has to be the more personal and emotional ones. As someone who lived in an abusive family I never saw any love between my parents and I have been abused as well so I am very afraid of getting into a relationship and living that nightmare again. I learned not to trust people, always be skeptical and to try and live life as independently as possible. Deep down I do want to be in a relationship and I do want to form a strong bond with someone. While the cynical and untrusting part of me is happy that I'm ignorant in love, relationships and sex because it's easy to tell myself I don't need those things to live; I know this sort of mentality isn't healthy. I know I can't let fear of the past dictate my life and not everyone is dysfunctional and fucked up. I feel like I need someone understanding, patient and kind to really help me get over this shit. Even if things do not work out in the end at least I have some positive feedback to prove to myself that there are good people that love and care about me. I'm sorry of this post is all over the place. I'm not used to talking about myself so I kinda just got caught up in the moment and wrote what I thought.

I just lack proper social skills, for some reason sometimes I just can't comprehend things and whenever I try to say something it comes out all weird and I get embarrassed. It has gotten waaaay better though, going to work and talking to customers actually helped me a bit.

Ohmy this is an old post but seems to still be active so I guess Im gonna add my part to this as well bc im bored as heck xD
Im actually new here so I dont have any experience with this site in particular but Ive tried other places, actually more to just find friends that a relationship bc i think one results from the other kinda ??? idk

I guess the biggest reason Im not having any friends rly and no relationship atm is that Im realllyyy unconfident and most of the times even feeling suicidal or just bc Ive gotten bitter bc of life. It is so hard to find people... I mean everyone wants attention on the internet right... so most people just do whatever they need to do to get it. Be it lying about several things, causing drama, hating on others or whatever. In the end everyones just focused on themselves really.
Im a really clingy piece of crap and once I found a person I can deeply connect to I just want them around 24/7 and share and do everything with them. So far I just found a few people that I connected to that deep and everytime I kind of ended up alone. Its demotivating and frustrating and Im hiding in a shell which I strongly want to get pulled out of but why would anyone ever try? Theres a million other people that are easy to have and are 'normal' or pretty and popular..I dont feel like I matter at all and yeah if you dont love yourself nobody else will love you sadly. A circle you cant get out of once youre in it :ยด) thats why Im alone.
