So i am a 20 year old gay college student. Ive never been in a relantionship and as much as i want to stay confident and positive…i cant deny that it makes me feel sad and lonely.
All my friends are in relationships and i am really happy for them. We go out together all the time and they dont make me feel abandoned which i really appreciate. But when i am all alone in my room it feels like a mask comes off and i am back on my bs. Its annoying but i cant help comparing myself to them and wishing I had a boyfriend too.
I have tried dating apps and gone out on dates and stuff. But nothing really came out from them since most guys either wanted to hook up or had a bunch of red flags. Not really a surprise since we are all in college but I am not going to settle for someone that its not worth it since thats just asking for trouble. But I cant help being afraid ill be alone for the rest of my life.
I also dont have high standards which I know will probably come up. Like i dont want masc sixpack having model looking guy or anything like that.
TL:DR How to deal with loneliness as a gay college student who is surrounded by couples…
I guess my question is if anyone has any tips to get a boyfriend? Or maybe ideas to deal with loneliness while I am single?
