All my life I've had a speech problem. The natural way I speak I talk in a flat monotone that is expressionless and emotionless. It's just the way I naturally speak. I have to deliberately try to inject some variation in my voice pitch but when I do I stutter REALLY REALLY bad. And this really puts girls off when I'm trying to talk to them because I either slip into my monotone voice without thinking about it (what's natural to me) or I stutter so bad I can't get a sentence out.
I saw a speech therapist for 3 years as a child but it didn't help much, and I've started seeing one again recently but it doesn't seem to be helping.
What can I do? What should I do? And girls, are there any of you out there who wouldn't be totally creeped out by this?

I have to be honest with you. If a guy spoke to me in a flat monotone it would totally creep me out because it would make him look like a serial killer. The stuttering thing can be cute at first but that wears off quick because it gets frustrating trying to hold a conversation with someone who stutters like Porky Pig. I'm sure you're a nice guy but I honestly can't see any girl giving you the time of day if your speech problem really is as bad as you say because the way you talk just screams "PSYCHO SERIAL KILLER!"
Wish I could offer help on how to "fix" it but if speech therapy isn't helping I'm totally lost. Sorry...1
