Hi everyone, I thought this may be the most appropriate place to post this but I apologise if it isn't. So, I've basically hit that age where I feel like a relationship would be quite nice for me. The only problem is my confidence levels. My problem is that I just don't feel comfortable about the way I look. I'm not what guys want, they all want slim, beautiful ladies and I'm not slim and I don't feel beautiful. I see other women my weight and they look so beautiful to me, but then I look in the mirror and I basically feel sick from myself. I hate myself. I had a boyfriend last year for a little while, but he cheated on me and treated me so bad at the end of our relationship, this also contributes to my feelings of worthlessness and having no confidence. I have suffered from depression and anxiety for around 6 years now, from a very young age. I just want someone there for me to care for me and protect me. A guy I have been speaking to on the internet wants to meet me later on today (it's like 5:20am here at the moment), he seems really genuine and kind. We have mutual friends so I know he's not someone out to get me or anything (just to clear that up). I really would love to, but I just feel like he won't like me. He keeps saying he will and that I don't need to be worried but there's still a mental block in my head telling me otherwise. I'm also so scared to get hurt again, I'm tired of pain and being hurt, it's all I ever experience. I guess I'm looking for some advice, some help, some confidence building, your thoughts... Anything. Please help me. Paige.
