    So pretty recently I broke up with my girlfriend, which i'm not actually awfully upset about- we weren't a great match and it was for the best, in the gentlest way possible I don't miss being with her. However, I hate being single- I think it sucks. I'm not saying I need a relationship to be happy, but I do like being in a relationship and currently, I am literally the only one in my friendship group who is single. I am quite lonely, and I don't mean i don't have plenty of friends but I just kind of want someone who's something more. The issue here is that i'm a lesbian and I thought I might meet some new people at sixth form, but no luck. As well as this i'm not the best looking person, i'm overweight and I have really severe confidence issues plus a long history of depression and eating disorders so even if there was a single gay girl who is my type (not that i'm picky), it's highly unlikely anyone would want to date me. I'm too young to join a dating site too but I just feel a little miserable at the thought of being single for months, just seeing pictures of my friends going out with their s/o's while I go see films on my own, etc. It's not like I need to be in a relationship to cope, I just like the companionship that comes with it and I feel like it's going to be a really long time before I get lucky and come across someone who's right for me. I feel like i've just got nothing going for me anytime soon.
