How do you stop the pain of being lonely and single?

Anonymous
I’m 22 years old and i’ve been single my whole life. I’m a little shy and an introvert so it’s always been hard getting to know new people. I have great friends, and they are all different personalities from different backgrounds which i really love but 95% of them are girls because i get really awkward and shy around guys. Guys have tried to be in a relationship with me in the past but I wasn’t ready then and also those guys weren’t really my type (personality wise), so I didn’t give them a chance because i’m either all in or all out. But for the past 2 years i’ve been feeling so terrible, so lonely. I’m longing for love but i can’t find anyone that fits my standards (which keep getting lowered). and I’m terrified that im getting too old and I’m never gonna get the chance to feel what it’s like being loved and in love. Everyone around me has either experienced it or is experiencing it and at first it didn’t really bother me but now it really is causing me pain. I’m so pathetic i sometimes break down crying randomly because of it. I’m really sorry for the long description but if you got any advice i would really love to hear it.
