i wonder if anyone has given up on the idea of love, romance or relationships. and if so, how did you feel about it when you realised it? and if you told your parents, how did you do it?

I've given up in the idea but also probably still hope for it if that makes sense. It's more like I've accepted the reality that I live a life of solitude. It took me many years to accept this because it made me severely depressed. I didn't have to tell my parents it pretty obvious when I spend all my time by myself and don't go out dating and such. I make random sarcastic jokes about it sometimes. I decided to accept it because I was tired of feeling so sad over not feeling wanted or good enough. There wasn't a moment of realization it was more a process over several years.
