I guess I find myself wondering what you feel you might have to offer a potential mate in a caring/sharing relationship.

love should always be defined as "if you love something, you would gladly give up your life so that it may live on"/ most people try to find one individual who causes this feeling in them, but it differs from person to person. personally, being mildly autistic and socially awkward have landed me in the same boat as you, but yet i have loved for the past ten years. i love no individual, but every individual. i would rather save someones life by sacrificing mine than simply watch. it doesnt matter how much i dont like the person, it doesnt matter rather i know them or not. i love all people equally, and even given the chance to save hitler ( a man i despise ) i would, just because the fact that every life can have extremely far-reaching results on other's lives. maybe you save a man that acts the same way as mr scrooge. in the eyes of most, they wouldv'e rather seen him perish, but that sacrifice could change his way of thinking entirely. sometimes people just need an example, a second chance. maybe loving one person is too selfish and life has been trying to tell people that for centuries. maybe you can take something from this, or maybe you think far too differently. either way. i love you, and would even if nobody else would, and always will. good luck m'lady

I can only answer with my interpretation of what I am reading, so I'll start with your comment of not needing companionship, yet you are writing this, while I think everyone needs it, let's assume you do not, but you want it. You coupled that statement with stating you are a strong woman...so be it, nothing wrong with that. We (guys), know you can open your own door, pay for your own drink, kill the spider (honestly...I'd rather let you take care of that one anyway )...I would just say drop the gaurd that is the strong woman and let yourself enjoy.
On the dating site thing...I'm married, haven't done it, so this is a case of do as I say, not as I do...what the heck you got to lose...you might meet "Mr. Right", you might make some great friends, and heck, you might have a little fun in the process!
Just my 2 cents, and again based on how I read it...good luck out there!

Never loved anyone, or have never been in love with anyone???
They are different you know...
This might sound weird coming from the guy with the scary avatar, but there are many form of love. And I'd be a bit surprised if you have never loved anyone in any way ever. I've never been in love, but I can confidently say that there are many people that I do love.

There is not anything that we can say here that will make you decide if you go through life alone or with someone by your side.
Only your heart knows for sure.
I went through life alone and fairly sure I would never find someone.
I was 30 when I met her.
We had 22 years of life together and she gave me 2 beautiful girls who have become gorgeous women.
She died 2 years ago and I miss her everyday.
It is better to love and lose it than to never have loved at all.
This was her favorite song.
There is someone looking for you.
Go find them.
