Hi guys, I wasn't sure if I should put this in this section or the appearance issues section, but it seemed like this was the right one since my issues stem deeper than just how I look. Umm, so I realize that I have really low self-esteem. I don't really like how I look... I don't feel like I'm very attractive... and I'm not really packing down there... and I know that a serious relationship shouldn't be built on something so flighty, but I just feel like that's kind of what I want in a guy, even though I know that there are more important aspects to a partner than just attractiveness, like how much the other one loves you and cares about you. The problem is, I haven't been with anyone for over a year, and I feel kind of empty inside because I don't feel like I have anyone special in my life. I mean, I have a lot of friends who are girls, and some straight guy friends, but I feel like I want someone to be with that I can give myself up to. I feel really lonely sometimes, and I'm in college and this time is supposed to be special, but everyday I go to bed wondering what the hell I'm doing. I feel like if I had someone closer to talk to, I would feel better. I know that's kind of selfish, to be in a relationship just for that, but it's just how I feel, and no matter how hard I try to realize this, I still feel the same way. So I feel really bad about myself for my appearance and the fact that I haven't been seeing anyone. And I think that I haven't been with anyone on a date, and this is my opinion, but I think it's the fact that I'm not attractive enough. I mean, I feel like I have a lot to offer in a relationship, but I guess my luck isn't too great. Thanks for reading this, I would really appreciate any kind of advice.
