It's really hard to sustain a relationship, isn't it, with low self-esteem ; just as it's had for a guy to like and respect you more than you like and respect yourself. I'm sure there's nothing serious wrong with you, but counselling of a CBT sort could help greatly to improve your self-esteem and improve social skills, so you can enjoy meeting others and similar social situations
