"Do I need to work on myself before dating?"... YES.
You should be focus on resolving your issues instead of getting involved with someone else. It's unfair to the other person to deal with your baggage. Why not work on them first then try your hand at dating? Also, if you're trying to use "love" or "sex" or "dating" to deal with your issues then thats so not the way to go. In fact it can make it even worst. I've had friends who depend on guys to keep their self esteem steady and when the guy jets or doesn't feed their ego, their self esteem collapse. Thats because it was only being balanced by someone else. they had all the power over that person's self esteem. I wish u the best with everything. Sorry if I sound harsh! Just tryna help! :)
