    I feel so alone in this world.

    I'm very lonely and only have a handful friends.

    The problem is when everybody asks me why I am single and why I don't have any children; people assume it's because of egotism and I'm being too picky. I am not. Nobody seem to be able to love me. Men only want sex from me. No man has ever told me that they love me for who I am...
