What can I do to get help with self esteem? I also need dating help. Would all this be helped with therapy? I have trouble showing any interest romantically at all. I can say hi and chat but it goes nowhere. I've also had no dating experience whatsoever. I've read stuff but I think I need to actually talk to someone.

I found it informative.
Another thing I have found useful is affirmations. It may sound whacky, but try telling yourself you accept and love yourself 3 x 5 times per day. So 5 times in the morning, 5 times at noon and 5 times in the evening. I think you can actually tell yourself anything you want, but probably best to say something kind rather than critical :) If you stick with it, it could help.
