Whatever else may or may not happen, why on earth decide you could be doomed to a "very dull lonely life" ? You would have to work so very hard to ensure that this gloomy prediction came true.
But you seem to be describing a perfect basis for successful counselling / psychotherapy.
It sounds as though part of the problem may be a twisted upbringing which convinced you that sex was bad so that as soon as a guy shows any real interest in being with you, even non-sexually, you feel compelled to take avoidant action to chase him away.
Cognitive-behaviour Therapy ( CBT ) is well desiogned to explore and revise such negative and inaccurate habits of thought and behaviour. You do NOT have to adopt and stick to the warped ideas your parents instilled in you - do you perhaps feel that as they live with you, you cannot change the habits they tried to trap you in ?
You seem to have reached an important insight, realizing that this is a fruitless set of habits and needs to change, and that doing so would enable you to lead a far more fulfilling life. See a good local psuychologist offering CBT and start changing your life for the better
