In all honesty I can't tell anymore. I have been betrayed by 2 of the people closest to me and a number of people in between. When I got with my ex I finally trusted again, thought I never ever have to worry about him betraying me... But he did, he cheated on me.
I feel like my walls have gone so far up ill never be able to open up and be vulnerable again.
Its been 9 month and although I feel like I'm managing OK I don't have the urge to go out and meet anyone or think of being with someone again. Don't get me wrong I do get horny but the thought of sleeping with someone again very rarely crosses my mind... In all honesty I don't really feel much emotion... Am I broken?

Hi there. I think it is perfectly normal to put the walls up when you feel that you have been betrayed. Trust takes time to build, and when lost can take a long time to get back. As you say, you don’t feel the need for a partner in your life at the moment, and that is ok too. Many people stay single for all their life because they are happy that way. Take time to enjoy yourself and your hobbies (as lockdown is lifted). You never know, you might just meet somebody while not looking, and those relationships can be very special and long lasting. There is no rush to be in a relationship if you are happy. Take care and stay safe.
