I'm really down about how alone I feel. I already have diagnosed depression and I'm on medication. I think being upset/down about being alone has been a huge contributor to my depression and has been keeping me stuck in this rut.
Most of my loneliness comes from women being completely repulsed by me (physically unattractive, introverted, intelligent - probably the worst combination possible). Its so difficult knowing absolutely nobody wants you romantically/sexually.
I do have some friends, and I do sometimes talk to them about this, but they are in much the same situation (albeit less upset/down about it). I'm also reticent to bother them with it too much, as I'm aware doing so would soon leave me with no friends.
I have no relationship with my family. I can't even stand talking to them about something small and unimportant, let alone this.
I don't want to go to a Doctor, they will shoo me straight out the door with more medication, they don't have the answers or cure for what is wrong with me and they tend to be short on time for talking.
I don't want to go to a therapist/counsellor, I've had several over the past few years, they always seem to obsess about my past/childhood, which I'm aware contributed to my situation, but talking about it won't change it or help stop me being so lonely - in fact they pretty much refuse to talk to me about anything that is happening now at all or even tell me what I'm saying is happening to me isn't happening, which usually results in me never returning as they obviously are not able to comprehend my situation.

You could talk to Taylor Swift about what's in your title question.
On a serious note though, you're taking the right steps by identifying the factors & being able to define what didn't work in the past, so that you'll be able to narrow down what can work for you.
