    I have been single for six years now and everyone around me can find someone except me. Single life is the root cause of my bouts of depression, pugnacity, vituperation and bellicosity.

    WHAT THE HELL DO I NEED TO DO!!!!!

    Online dating doesn't work, and the amount of times I have been lied to and people not answering messages is absurd.

    Hi kokemanjoki9,

    Stay away from online dating if you are feeling depressed. It will just make things worse for you.

    My advice, would be to just be happy in yourself, whichever way you decide to be happy. Let a potential partner come to you They will when you are happy in yourself.

    That's my suggestion.

    Keep looking, something will turn up. Meet as many people as possible and network within networks (sure your doing this).

    I have been single for four years now and would love a relationship too, I haven't looked as don't feel quite ready. Still carrying a lot of hurt from the last one.

    The times I have met a partner, twice in my life, I remember making significant changes in my life before hand, both involved moving house, to another city. Not saying you have to do that, but the experience of it, a new environment, gave me a fresh start. May be just look at changing thing up a bit, like doing something you haven't done before, doesn't have to be big, could be like joining a book group, or doing a class, recreation group..
