Our expert says:
Unless one is in solitary confinement ( and even then you meet jailers ) you meet people. No reason why you couldn't meet someone special or pleasant even if you were not feeling particularly cheerful at the time.
Of course you might be so wrapped up in your own bad feelings as not to notice when the nice person came by ; or if you expressed your bad feelings in a way that was offputting to others, they might not pause long enough for you to get to know them.
But of course it's possible.
And frankly, I'd find someone too busy "radiating love and joy" rather annoying. Too much like those people who say "Have a nice day" as though it was a command ! Or like some of those Hare Krishnas who can be uncomfortably sunny and unreal.
Now, try not to get too busy with self-loathing - we know you don't deserve it, and you really need to get better hobbies than that. Don't trap yourself in negative assumptions about the hopelessness of love - from unpleasant experiences we try to learn to be more cautious but not TOO cautious.
Be genuine in a pleasant way, rather than plastic smiley
