I want to experience my humanness. I'm so emotionally lonely. It's causing me to want to and not want to get into a relationship and kiss a girl. It's such a complex feeling which I don't know how to make sense of. How would others cope with this?

You need to evaluate your life. Take a pen and paper. Write down all good things that are happening in your life and all the good qualities you possess. Do the same with the bad. Write down all the things you want to accomplish in life and how you want to accomplish them. As much as we know ourselves it is always good to look at it on paper. Once you've done that you should go out and socialize especially in areas that you like and are comfortable in.
You are in the intimacy vs isolation part of your life ( Erikson's stages of psychosocial development). You need to establish your identity before being ready for long term committed relationships.
Why do you think you haven't reached that milestone?2
