Obviously I won't go into detail but I went through trauma years ago
It still messes with me and I haven't had any form of a romantic relationship since, I'm 22 and I don't want to be alone forever, but I'm also so untrusting of men, , getting close to them, everything
So I guess my question is, have any of you overcome this fear or am I stuck?

hi Snowfairy :welcome: ✨

yes I have had a few traumatic relationships actually
as well as other traumas
and Im not sure how far I have come in my recovery from them
im staying out of them at the moment
apart from some online stuff
and writing poetry and songs about I

ive come to a point where it isn't the most important things in life
I'm looking at my friendships and see how I can improve those
meeting new people

and finding out what I'm passionate in life
also an opportunity to say what do I really want
why is a relationship important ?
what do I hope to get out of it

I'm married but still have issues from my traumas(I have PTSD and assuming you do too?).Have you considered seeking professional help ?That's what I suggest if you haven't.
