End of this week I'm due to attend a pychopharamcology conference in Cape Town, and will try to raise this issue with some of the shrinks from those hospitals. And see what they can say. Of course it's ridiculous to allow such delay in urgent matters - its like requiring someone with a heart attack to make an appointment to come in 6 months to be seen.
Try to find pleasant and safe ways to meet people NOT about dating, such as sharing work for charities, NGO,s hobbies, whatever - to get comfortable meeting people who don't meet you as someone they might fear to be too needy, and maybe find one or two worth making friends. I fel many people place so much emphasis on finding a lover, they lose opportunities to make friends, who may be much more valuable in the long run.
