I have recently been diagnosed with depression. I've had depression since I was 10 and I'm now almost 15. I'm alternative and I listen to punk, indie , emo, hipster and pop-punk. I can't say I'm not popular with guys but when they find out about my past and my depression they just stop liking me and instead they start rumours or treat me like crap. I just wanted to know if my depression is stopping me from getting a boyfriend and being liked by anyone. Thanks. :)

Well, being depressed will not help you in the attraction department. It's not really a positive and nice state of being to have or be around. It's very energy consuming for everyone involved. Some people will be very repelled by such because they can't handle all that. Some people will feel pity or empathy and try to help you but it will not really create attraction. But the smallest percentage might see you as a bird with broken wings they need to save. The biggest majority will most likely see you as strange an odd simply because the can't relate to you.
I had depression myself probably from around the age 17 to 23ish. It's possible to get through it and live a normal and happy life. It takes courage and strength to be able to enter the total darkness and void within and find the light and make it grow.
Don't identify yourself with your depression even if you've been "diagnosed" that. Your personality is simply what you now have become, it's not who you will be forever. Depression is what you think, not what you are. It's possible to change everything about yourself.0
