    I feel like no one could ever love me

    because of my depression and anxiety. I want to die almost every day and no one deserves to deal with that stuff. I have been to therapy and I'm medicated but it only helps so much. I'm going to be by myself forever. It is mostly by choice but I still hate it.

    Guys pursue me, but not

    for long. Of course not, when I am so nice and boring. I always hear them talking about other women, and how they love them, but that they get treated badly by them and don't understand why. I wouldn't treat them badly but that's never good enough so why bother?
