I know what you are talking about 100%. You either start speaking to someone and you think they like you, but upon further enquiry it's not the case and they just see you as a friend in the end. It's a bit hard to take being strung along, especially when you truly think that person in questions wants a romantic relationship and they just don't. When i was younger i got angry about it, but as you get older you see that person clearly was not right for you in the end.Sounds a lot like me. My health has deteriorated so much over the years that I can barely stand for more than a couple minutes, and I too feel no one could ever be attracted to me. Plus I suffer badly with anxiety, and just meeting anyone new at all is a struggle so I too have come to accept that I will die alone. It sucks because I seem to have a personality that when I do meet people I only seem to attract women, but I never attract women in a romantic sense so it's like I'm being taunted. It's as if I'm stuck in a Sims game and the person playing is like "hey here's an attractive lady for you to meet... and no she isn't going to like you".
I'm sure some will want to be the happy positive types that want to say things like "well golly gee you never know" or "anything can happen", but I'm at a point in my life where I feel that if it was meant to happen it would have by now. For those of you that want to be on the positive side, the only way you can convince me otherwise is if you can actually prove me wrong and find someone that would be attracted to me... which I guarantee you won't. Hell I could go into that networking section right now and make a post and I promise that no one would reply or show interest, even if I could go back several years and be the more positive me no one would be interested.
It's like looking in a mirror regarding what you've said because i heard the same thing for years and years, granted it was online people but being told "you never know" or "just wait" and to be honest it makes it worse really. As our confidence/optimism is already shot to pieces at this particular point. I've not got the answers but i know how painful this well and truly is. The health part is the killer along with anxiety, as it's just a powder keg of uncertainty and as you get rejected more it really feeds into that.
