I'm a late bloomer when it comes to love and romance. I didn't even go on my first date until I was 22. Soon after that first date, I met my first boyfriend who I had all my other firsts with: first kiss, first time I had sex, first parents I met,... and we were together for over 5 years. I think it lasted 4 years longer than it should have because, it took me so long to have someone, I was afraid it would be my only chance. And he used to tell me that too: "You'll never find someone as good to you as me." It's been almost 3 years since we'd broken up. I've had some casual relationships since then, and that's been nice. I've learned more about myself and more about what I want and need in a partner. And I've had something close to a serious relationship during that time, but he ultimately wasn't ready. We broke up despite telling each other we were falling in love. That was 2 years ago. He's in a committed relationship with someone much better suited for him now. It hurts, but I wish them well. All this to say: I feel so alone. Despite my growth, I'm really starting to think maybe that first boyfriend was right. I feel so unlovable. And with this pandemic lasting for as long as it has and the prevalence of ghosting on these dating apps, I don't know what to do. I'm certain I'm not the only one who feels this way, and yet there is nobody to talk to about it. I just want to feel less alone.
