    Many women disqualify me in dating solely for being virgin

    I have been in this internal struggle to regain my self-esteem despite having turned 30 and remaining a virgin despite not wanting to. I have gained a lot of self-confidence back, but the problem seems to be that a lot seem to think that the virginity issue nullifies any of that. Even when I...

    I don't feel what I should...

    If I'm not in pain, I feel nothing. I don't feel like myself if I'm not self harming because I like the scars. I see the scars and I'm me that way. I do good things for others, but it's only what I'm supposed to do. I have Christian beliefs, but I can't find it in myself to include other people...

    It never gets better?

    I went 17 days without hurting myself, which is the longest I've gone in months. I really hate myself, and hate myself for continuing to do this. The last time I hurt myself it got infected, which is why I think I was able to stop myself for so long. But yesterday I couldn't get out of bed. I...

    I was bullied in high school which meant I had no friends. And I think I was bullied in one of the worst ways. There was this group of people who pretended to be my friend so that they could bully me without getting into trouble. So, they would act like friends to my face then say stuff about...
