If your questions: Stems from being hurt in love or not having a special person a mental health professional or clergy person may be of help. I see that you are also depressed and fatigued. Please let a professional help you keep things in perspective so that you can love self and others in a healthy way. Peace and good health.

A small word: with a universe of meanings. "In love" is an obsessive infatuation. It feels great but it's overrated as being 'true love.' Mature love is different. The object of love is priceless, greater than your most valuable possession. But you don't cling or control- you want the beloved to have the best, even if it costs you. The great teachers agree: Love yourself and love the other just as much.
