Lonely

I have never had any luck with women; I'm 17 and I've NEVER had a girlfriend. Justly, my self-esteem is dragging the ground all the time. I am depressed, neurotic, and in need of your help. I may only be 17, but trust me, it has felt like a much longer time than that. I take Paxil for the depression, and I've talked to psychiatrists, but they don't help. I'm still lonely, but don't think I'm only trying to get a girl for sex. I'm of a different breed of adolescent; a breed that will take sex if it is offered, but will not date only for that reason. Companionship has something to be said for it, too. I'm 6'8" and 320 lbs., but the height makes me only have a gut. Maybe that is why the chicks don't dig me...maybe not. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
