Most Helpful Guy
I was physically abused. I'm having trouble with work. I don't earn much, so going out doesn't happen.
I've got chronic pain.
Getting new friends is tough by itself, and most won't call or invite me out (if I COULD) go out.
So I'm at home working on thing that won't go anywhere, avoiding family, and not really going out much unless it's super cheap.
Add to that some bad relationships and a lot of negative stuff with girls, and that destroys my confidence.
I have a girl I' m interested in, but know already that it's not going to happen, so I am trying to forget about her, but it hurts knowing that I would get shot down or avoided if I did ask her out, hurts knowing that I am so far beneath her (and so many other girl's) level.

Well, the entire time I was growing up basically everyone in my life from my family to my friends at school were telling me I wasn't good enough in some form. My mom said I was too fat, my dad said my singing was cool but I should play an instrument instead because that's more legitimate, my best friend said I wasn't pretty or interesting enough, my teachers said my goals weren't great... But jokes on them because my husband thinks I'm sexy, beautiful, and funny. My bosses think I'm kick ass at my job and they help me achieve my goals. My co-workers love it when I sing while working because I'm amazing at it and it raises morale. It took me a long time to get to where I could say all that though, and I'm still getting past living with all that doubt. People are cruel, but I'm learning to get over it.1
