I dont know what it is. Lately I have been feeling really crappy. I know I feel this way largely because I'm single and it's finally starting to wear on me. I'm 26 years old and I have had three actual relationships, none of which lasted longer than 9 months. I have had two girlfriends cheat on me, and the third one took advantage of me and actually got verbally abusive. It was an ugly situation that I'm glad to be out of. The thing is, all my friends are either married, engaged, or in long term committed relationships. It's hard to hang our around them because it constantly reminds me of what I want but cant seem to find. I find myself spending countless hours just sitting there listening to music, it's the only thing that brings me peace of mind. I don't want to give up hope, but some days i feel like I'm destined to be by myself. I'm a decent guy, never been a jerk, I have a good sense of humor, and I think I'm fairly decent looking. I just cant seem to attract a decent girl that will love me for who I am.
