    I'm 17 and I've been in 5 relationships in the past 2 years which may seem like a lot, however 3 of them only lasted a month or two, whilst the other two were around 5-6 months each.

    Since I was 15, I haven't been single for more than 3 months, however october last year I was in a pretty rubbish relationship with a guy I only dated because I was really lonely. Luckily, I dumped him this year in April. However, I've been single ever since. I've had one or two one night stands, talked to a few guys, been on a few dates (I even was in a friends with benefits deal with two people, one I'm currently in now) but nothings ever come out of it. I've been single for about 7 months and its horrible-i'm just so lonely I can't tell what I'm doing wrong. I don't think I'm very unattractive, I get complimented a lot, it's just worrying as to how I'm not meeting new guys.

    How do I get out this rut? Cheers

    You've been single for only 7 months, I wouldn't consider that being "unable to get out of being single"..

    I think you need to stop actively searching for a new boyfriend and focus on yourself, perhaps pick up new hobbies and you'll meet new people. The more you focus on just trying to fill in the loneliness, the less likely it will work out. It's better when the person you meet and like comes up unexpectedly.

    Try to be yourself, spontaneous & not think too much of being a single. Guys will find you attractive & will try their luck with you. You need to accept your state as being single for the greater good, so you will not rush in making a false & not worthy relationship with the new guy; otherwise he would be no. 6 in your list.
