Yes. I am very blessed to have my parents. But once they are gone I won't even have them, nor probably a home for that matter. I'm sorry to hear you are in a similar situation. I hope you find meaning in life where I have not.
I am living with my parents. I dread the days they both pass away. I feel they are the only ones who love me in this world. I am lucky I do have a sister. But she has her own life and not alot of time for me.

No there have been others and they've most all scurried in the opposite direction whenever I've tried to warm up to them. One didn't but my parents (whom I live with) destroyed my chances with that one. Told me to get rid of her
oh yes I've been in that situation myself .
I just stay single when that happens
but the love is still in me

I'm settling down a little. Still depressed but returning to "normal." Still don't feel very hopeful about the future. Life really does just suck.

Every time I think about who I am I just don't imagine myself being all that appealing to anyone. Women want manly men or responsible men. Everything about me is more like a boy. It just seems impossible to me. I mean, I could get someone I'm entirely not interested in. There's an extremely ugly lady who seems to have an interest in me but I'm not interested in her. But that's because, like me, she can't get anyone else either.

For some of us, romantic love is just for the lucky and strong. It doesn't seem to be for me or the mentally ill. It's for a special class of people. It seems like a wonderful thing from the other side of the fence but I'll never experience it first hand.
