I read what you had to say in your other thread. I know where you are coming from believe me. We live in a world where many are starving while other's have too much. And I'm not talking about food or cars. Loneliness is a "commodity" that can be cashed in on. Look at all the matchmaking sites out there. I was meeting women that way before the internet evolved out of the 2400 baud modems we used back in the day to log onto "bulletin boards". It was a lot easier then, less paranoia. Now, I find them to be a waste of time. I like this site better, real friends are more important. Sometimes it's best to put away dating/marriages and look at the bigger picture: survival.
I saw the word anxiety several times in that thread. People on their own are very prone to anxiety attacks. You think to yourself, "Who can I call if I feel one coming on?" Then, realizing there's no one to call, or to come visit, it's likely to happen. I can tell you that you have the advantage of being young. Good luck and keep posting on new developments.
