Hello, I'm 24 years old male. I'm finishing my economic studies in about a year and I really don't see how it's gonna help my in my life but whatever, it's not the main problem. Basically my problem is that I've never had a girlfriend in my whole life, my social life almost doesn't exist, few years ago I had quite a few friends and suddenly everyone just vanished, I was never an asocial person but I've always had problem meeting new people it doesn't come easy for me. Now I have only one good friend and that's all. I don't see how the whole situation can be changed, I know that I will never find a girlfriend. all of that because I'm ashamed of myself. I'm only 5'6 everyone is looking at me like I'm a freak, I know that's the reason why my life sucks. I hate going out and watching all these happy couples in love they are everywhere, and normal people it makes me more and more dejected. Also my family, everyone thinks that I'm gay, that something wrong is with me I can't count on any support from them, they see that everyday I'm more depressed and their only advice is go to a shrink. So, if nothing's gonna change this year I'm planning to do it on my birthday which is 7 months from now, seems like the best occasion you can possibly imagine. Sorry for my terrible English, forums like this one are not quite legal in my country.
