Improve Your Self-Love to Find a Loving Partner

self loveDear Sandy,

I’ve given dating advice to all of my friends, but I myself have never been in a real relationship, and frankly, I’m getting pretty darn lonely. The last “relationship” I had, it turned out he was using me to make his ex-girlfriend jealous and win her back. I really would like someone to share myself with, and for them to share themselves with me. Granted, I have one guy interested in me, but I just don’t see him in that way (he’s more like a brother to me). I’m super shy, though I like talking to guys, but a part of me is afraid of getting hurt and I don’t know how to get past that. Another part of me wishes I could be emotionally available, but I’m not–I’m in love with my best friend, and have been for six years. I know that’s hopeless but I want to not only let him go, but also find love. How can I possibly do this? I find it all so hopeless and impossible.

Thank you in advance,

Gabriella, a really love-challenged girl
