I think being rejected, facing fear and taking a few knock backs is all part of living. You have to take the plunge and participate in life. Even with a partner we still have moments of rejection, loneliness and great sadness. Not one person can make you happy. I find you have to learn to like yourself, to keep learning, to continue to develop yourself mentally, physically, and spiritually. I find sometimes I can love lots of people for the way they are, the things they say or/and because they seem to be kind, generous, spiritual people. Other times I see a lot of evil and people who don`t give a dam about others. I try to take each day as it comes and just love living, the sun shining etc. etc. Georgy take the plunge, try loving someone, the main thing is to believe in yourself and if it doesn`t work then so what you gave it your best shot! Who said `It is better to have loved and lost than to never have loved at all?? Having many great friends would also be better than having one violent or aggressive partner hanging on anyway. Go for it, you really have nothing to lose!
