You don't need a gun, you need some perspective. Take a deep breath. Listen...

I was where you are when I was 23 (I am now 28 and female), and I was envious of everyone else who was dating someone seriously and had these wonderful happy engagements or marriages.

Well guess what? I'm still single, I've come out of my depression, and now most of my married friends are divorced, or in the process of getting divorced.

Never look outside of yourself to gauge if you're on the right path. Look within yourself.

I am a bipolar manic depressive, and I could attract the hottest men, but couldn't KEEP relationships because my illness scared them all away. Even though I wasn't ready to admit that I had a problem (bipolar illness), these men could spot it from a mile away.

One day I would be so nice, then the next day crying hysterically and accusing them of stuff. It was bad.

Now I'm on 750 mgs. of Depakote a day and my life has improved incredibly. If you are manic, see if your psychiatrist (therapists can't prescribe meds, only give advice, so see a psychiatrist not just a psychologist) can get your bloodwork done and put you on some meds. Depakote and Topamax are good for bipolar people. Paxil and Zoloft are good for chronically depressed people.

And since Paxil is made primarily for social anxiety, this might be the drug for you!

You have time to date and marry -- a ton of time, so there's no rush. Instead of waiting for the right girl to choose you, why don't you be more choosy?

You have to get yourself together, though, before you go out seeking any romance or it will all fall apart.

You'll see, when you're out of this funk and your brain is back on track, you'll have tremendous self-esteem, women will smell it a mile away, and they will be flocking to you.

As a woman, I can attest to this -- ALL WOMEN LOVE A CONFIDENT MAN. And right now you don't seem so confident or sure of yourself. So work on yourself first, and the women that you like will like you back.

Please let me know if this advice helps at all! And please don't commit suicide. We're all here with depression, too, and managing it. I feel great now, and I never thought I would.

Take care!!!
