I have no girlfriend, no close friends, and I feel isolated often. I used to think that I was just cold, or too "strong", or whatever, now I realize that my issue goes deeper. See for a whole list of reasons just about everyone I ever got close to has left; my parents abandoned me when I was but a boy, my friends are all either in a different state or simply stopped communicating with me, my first love left me for another guy then told me later on she couldn't be with someone who was bi (still pisses me off a little), and my family mostly never visits me and the people who I once lived with were horrid so I would force myself into my room all day, locked up in my "dungeon" playing games constantly to get my mind off of things. It isn't entirely everyone else's fault either, see because I assume everyone is going to leave me I avoid approaching most people, and even when I do I feel anxious and stressed out, like if I don't act a certain way and do certain things that they will just move on, it goes even further than so much so that I will intentionally ignore females that I am attracted to because I feel deep inside that I'm not good enough for them, and it goes on and on. My point is that I feel abandoned, and because of that I abandon others before they can come close, its a self fulfilling prophecy where the snake will continue to eat its own tail until there is nothing left. I am in the process of seeking some sort of therapy, still I would greatly appreciate any advice one can offer me, hopefully something that could alleviate this fear of mine.
