Sometimes feel a little dead inside?

I would say I'm a happy person but sometimes lately, I feel as if I won't fall in love, I just can't imagine being that into someone. I feel a little dead inside when I think of girls? I used to fall in love pretty hard, but ive forgotten what it feels like and I just can't imagine feeling care free ever again. Maybe I will one day but I feel aa if I've lost my innocence or something, maybe because of being locked up for so long I just feel dead inside a lot nowadays, I'm just wondering will I always feel this way? I beat depression before I was on the up swing when covid hit, I was extremely happy and gaining confidence every day. Since being locked up my sense of sanity and self have eroded see significantly I just feel so numb and strange..

Is It Normal?

  • I know what you feel, but that's just losing interest, based on what you said you are still hopeful and still alive. Your feelings will simply change once someone or something catches your interest.

  • I have felt dead inside since childhood. Yet, I have no trouble staying motivated. Google up 'childhood emotional neglect'. It may give you some insights.

  • I would guess the pandemic has made a lot of us feel a little helpless or perhaps a loss of innocence. I've been looking at this time as a break and a chance to determine what and who I actually value in my life. I started working out at the beginning of this shit and went from a little chunky to seeing the veins in my arms. Which is very strange. Keep your head up. You're awesome I'm sure. Good luck.

      • When it's just a deadness about romantic matters, I'm cool with it. It's quite freeing not to have to fall in infatuation. It's the generalised deadness that gets to me.

        • I'm in no rush to fall in love with anyone. I honestly don't even care for the language, "fall in love", I think I'd rather fall asleep. I'm not interested in doing anything that suggests that I'm not in control of my person.

  • There’s someone out there for everyone, don’t give up hope. I can’t imagine ever being in a real relationship or finding what I imagine is the perfect guy for me.

  • I don't think I feel as bad as you, but i also lost interest/feelings regarding romance that I once had, like its just not there anymore. Not that big of a deal to me personally. I hope you find a way to feel better and if your life was improving before lock down it most likely will improve after too.
