How do you believe in love again?

I put it in this forum instead of Something's Not Right, because I genuinely want to know, for the way forward.

 

I mean part of me thinks that love is completely dependent on physical attraction. If love is intrinsic, how am I still single? I would like to think I have something to offer.

 

That said, you see guys that look like they just came out of prison walking around with very pretty girls, and I'm not THAT ugly. Unless I am and I just can't see it. 

 

Kind of related to this question, how do you avoid being intimidated by dating horror stories? 

 

I want to believe in love, because I believe that one of my biggest strengths is my ability to love. 

 

Before my breakup, my friend said "you go all out for her and she doesn't appreciate it." 

 

I want to love someone mutually for once. But it's getting harder to believe in it when you've got such a poor history with other human beings. And everything around you is a reminder of that. 

 

Just hearing the word "boyfriend" or "girlfriend" feels like an insult. That's not me. I would be a sucker for love if I believed it was real.
