How do you cope with loneliness?
I've been alone all my life. After meeting many people, and attempting relationships that never last more than a month, I'm still alone.
I don't put out on the first few dates, I'm not ugly, smelly, or overweight. I want a family, and I have pretty ordinary, common values. It's time I settled down, but I have no one to settle down with.
So it looks like I'm going to be single the rest of my life.
Do you have any tips on how to convince oneself that being alone is OK?
