I'm 24 and have been in the "real world" now for 2 years. In the past two years I've had two major relationships. Both times the guys have ended up disappointing me. The first one cheated on me. The second one turned into a real jerk treating me like he was doing me a favor by being with me. Anyhow so here I find myself, two years into a new life, out of college in a new area where I know no one except the teachers at my school and a few other friends I've made. And now I'm worried I won't ever find anyone or that I don't know how to pick nice guys. I know it's an irrational fear and I don't want to let myself get depressed but sometimes I wonder if maybe my standards aren't too high? Are my expectations too high? I just want a nice man who cares what happens to me. I feel unattractive and unsure that I'll ever find someone. I read all these great stories on proteacher about how you all found nice men and good husbands at all different ages but somehow I worry I'm different from all of you and no one will want to be with me. Especially now that I have two very very bad relationships under my belt. I feel like I have no direction. Any advice on how to keep my self esteem up and not settle? It's really been a difficult transition for me. Thanks.
