I am totally and utterly useless at relationships, romantic and non romantic. Anyone else the same? Also, what does 'emotionally unavailable' mean?

'emotionally unavailable' kind of means that you are there physically in a relationship but your heart isn't in it. I am the same way with relationships.

I really struggle with this. I lost my so called friends about 7 years ago when I got diagnosed and was stupid enough to tell them I had Schizophrenia. Big mistake.

I have been without friends for that amount of time now, and I don't seem to be able to find new ones.

It's sad, but I do have family who understand me, and family friends who I see sometimes.

I am no longer friends with people my age though.

I am going to try going to a couple of groups on meetup.com to see how that goes. Got nothing to lose.

I got dumped for having bipolar disorder. She said it was “baggage”. I know how you feel.
