And honestly I am terrified that this person will stop talking to me after two weeks as usual and I will continue being alone for my entire life. I know that I can't continue living my life this way any more but every single time I meet someone and form some sort of relationship with them, they abandon me and I just stop caring in general because it is pointless. I am honestly tired of living like a semi-recluse and avoiding meeting people and pretending that nothing is bothering me. It hurts knowing that everyone I know has someone and that I never will. And I know that shopping to fill the void is extremely unhealthy and that I need to stop but it's basically one of the few things that will take away the thought of my loneliness for awhile.

I am assuming you are younger, talking to people online is nowhere close to any kind of relationship. Humans use 50% spoken word and 50% body language to commicate with each other so any online interaction is fulfilling only about 25% of your social need. You can not hear inflection and tone in written word. Go out and talk to someone I know you will be scared but don't worry they will be too. Go outside and have a conversation with a stranger, even if a 2 second one like asking for the time. The more you do it the better you will get.
