You don't need to remain alone indefinitely, but don't let fear of being alone lead you into trapping yourself with someone who won't make you happy. And spending some time alone, learning to enjoy your lone-ness, makes you less desperate and clingy in seeking relationships, and thus more appealing. A counsellor may help you to celebrate yourself, on your own, and to get through this false idea of being worthless except as an appendage to someone else.
Your personal experience of your parents' divorce may indeed be part of the problem - not because this is an inevitable consequence, but a possible effect depending on how we choose to interpret such events.
