Can a seriously mentally and emotionally damaged individual be in a relationship? I have a lot of issues in my life. A lot! I have high social anxiety, general anxiety, depression, OCD tendencies, possible asperges and potentially complex PTSD (further research required on that one). Because of this I have been alone for my whole life and barely have any friends. The only friends I have now are new ones that I made recently and they still don't know much about me and my issues. I get the impression a lot of people think I am just the strong silent type that keeps to myself, and people are often intrigued by the mystery that involves. However, it's only half true, I am silent but pretty far from strong.
I keep thinking why would somebody want to be with me, considering I have all these issues. I wouldn't want to be with somebody that suffers from all those issues. Ultimately it will end up negatively impacting the other person in the relationship. People for the most part like strong confident people for partners, which is definitely not me. I am also concerned that my lack of friends and social relationships will look really weird to a potential girlfriend. It would appear to be a big character flaw being a friendless loner with very poor social skills, something not very attractive to the opposite sex. The big problem is that I am very lonely and would like somebody in my life. However my problems are very likely never going to be resolved, or if they are it won't be any time soon. I am on the track to dying alone. Here is the thing, I have a potential opportunity for a relationship, I may be over reading a situation, I can't tell yet. But I feel completely trapped. What can I do, commit to something that will most certainly fail and ruin a potential good friendship?
I just don't know what to do, serioudly fed up with being alone.
Since moving to my new "independent senior home", I have been vilified and targeted right from day one. I have been here two years. Neighbors came forward and asked lots of questions and, I, wanting to fit in, perhaps gave too much information about myself. Most of the neighbors have large families, friends, some are still working, have wealth and are in a tight knit group with other tenants...
