In light of that, then yes it's probably less likely.

Are you still talking to anyone professionally?

Cookie your struggling with dating because it's the only thing you have going on in your life at the moment. It usually works out when your relaxed and happy with where you already are. I will give you the challenge of finding something else that makes you happy , BESIDES dating. For example try composing music, I find that highly rewarding and can spend hours on it.

You get what you work for, happiness takes work.
Don't spend your day thinking about your feelings loneliness etc, live your life.

Are you over your ex? If not, then it is likely that you will not want to commit to anyone else. Until you meet someone who matches up to your ex, you will probably opt out before you and they get too involved.

This guy messed up. He never should have asked you to be his GF. I think that is a big part of why you got spooked. He was trying to lock you down but with the way you are right now, trying to lock you down will have the opposite effect.

I don't think you should look for a relationship, no. You shouldn't really look for anything. Just enjoy your life. Sure, you can hang out with guys, maybe get a pizza or something but you shouldn't have an agenda. Like, each guy you meet isn't a relationship prospect. Let things just happen naturally. One day, you might notice that you start to get attached to one of those guys and maybe things will progress from there.

I also think counseling is a waste of time. That's probably because I can be exceedingly arrogant sometimes.
