Is it bad if I think I’ll never get married? Much less at least date someone?

I’m almost 24 and have never had a boyfriend in my entire life. I’ve tried meeting guys, but I don’t check the boxes they’re looking for.
-I’m independent (I’m supporting myself financially.)
-I’m not thick. (I have sort of a thin/athletic build)
-I’m not easy. (I’m not going to sleep with a guy I just met.)
-I’m not what society expects me to be. (I’m black, but my voice and behavior are constantly perceived as “not black”. Meaning I’m not at all what any stereotypes say I “should” be like.)

I’ve always felt like an outcast and dating has been impossible for me. Even though I live alone and I’m independent, there’s times where I feel very lonely. I wish I had someone to talk to or someone to comfort me on my bad days, or someone that makes me feel like I’m their other half and that I matter.

I just feel like it’s not going to happen for me. Ever.
