    Does anxiety/depression make you lose interest in relationships?

    I've been in a relationship for around 7 months now and I'm losing interest in doing 'relationship-type' things. At the beginning I was really excited (if you can't tell, it was my first relationship), but now I don't feel anything. I can't tell if it's because I just don't like him anymore, or...

    What's the purpose of being a social being? I don't get the purpose when you just end up getting ignored or shunned.
