Nope! I'm the same as you. Very shy. been single for 21 years until July this year, i confessed first by the way in text and then later talked about it face to face in Skype. You'll find someone who loves you for you.
Don't think like that. Maybe you could join a club or do more activities that will help you meet people. It's hard when you're shy. I know the feeling but slowly as you get to know a person and get closer to them the shyness goes. You just have to find that special person :)
