I gave up on dating after i developed serious feelings for a guy. He liked me too but i was so scared i was expecting things to just go wrong. It scared him away. I lost him. Now i feel like im incapable of having that again. I've been hooking up with guys just to forget him but i keep falling deeper into shame. I miss him. I can't text him because i deleted his number. I told myself i was gonna forget but a part of me keeps holding on. I feel like im going crazy.

Yeah purposefully going out and screwing a bunch of guys specifically to forget about your heartache is about the worst thing you can do for your healing process it only makes it about 100x worse. You don't need to give up on dating. What you need to do is work on your inner self and think why you felt so insecure and thought the relationship would not work and then focus on gaining some confidence. Don't give up you're just scared of being hurt again but if you find the right person the risk is well worth it. You can take the heartache you're strong enough.1

I think you should find some way to find him and simply apologize for your behavior. Tell him what you're going through---that you thought he was too good to be true--and you'd like another shot. But first, you need to get rid of your insecurities.2
