Another GD Relationship Thread

I'm a 20 year old female who has never been on a date, let alone be in a relationship. I really long to be in one. I know a lot of people tend to ask about appearing attractive to the opposite sex, but, I'm not worried about that part at all. Although I wouldn't personally consider myself to be pretty, I get regularly asked out by strangers on the street, have had random men tell me I'm the most beautiful woman they've ever seen, have had attempts at being kissed by strangers multiple times, etc.
My issue is that my type is usually the shy/gentle sort and that I'm also painfully shy. I don't think I'd have the guts to ask someone out if I did find someone I was into, and I don't think that type may also have some difficulty initiating anything. It also seems that this kind of guy is rarer than a hunk of meat just pulled off of a cow, too. Any advice on finding a dude like this and how to overcome this shyness? Thank you all.

I don't know what to do with my life and was wanting some suggestions. I am 21 years old and currently have a part time job at a pet store. I also live at home with my parents still.I don't hate the work or the people there, hell the managers are great even, but I get so bored there sometimes I get depressed. Also I might suffer from depression. Haven't been to a doctor about it so yeah. I currently have about 2k in my checking account and 500 in my savings account. I went to college for 2 semester but failed half the courses each semester because I just didn't have the motivation or interest in them. Socializing was fun though and I've made more friends since graduating high school than I ever have. I've been contemplating quitting my job, but not unless I had something else to do with my time that was productive in some way. I'd get another job, but have no clue where I'd go since any other retail experience would probably be 10x worse than the pet store I work at. I like jogging and try to do that everyday to at least have a healthy body. I feel like it's time for me to actually do something with my life that's worthwhile, but I don't know what. If I went back to school what would I take? If I got another job, what would it be? How do I get the motivation to actually do things instead of lay in bed and just feel depressed sometimes? How do you discover a passion in life. It feels like I just keep grinding to get money to buy the things I like, which is nice, but I've come to the conclusion that material things don't make you happier. Being with people and improving your life skills and junk like that does I think. I wish I was better at talking to people. I wish when i talked to people it didn't feel like I was an NPC in a game spitting out the things expected of me. I'm just lost and confused and this is a giant jumble of mess of words.

So recently I decided to start a project with a friend to create a game. Obviously 2 people makes this thing a team effort and we have to work together to achieve goals and advance in the development of the game.
Mind you, this isn't some pussy 8-bit platformer or something, we're actually trying to make a full-fledged RPG that we've always wanted to make. Keyword, the game WE want to make, together.
Here's the problem though, I always feel like I'm the one more dedicated and wanting to work consistently on the project, while he has no sense of what it means to be productive or efficient at managing time and resources to be able to work on the project consistently at all. Being a "team," we have some distinct and separate jobs that are actually quite crucial in advancing and making progress. The stupid fucking part is, that distinct and separate job that he holds, always gets done slow as fuck. There's never any time to pause his shitty video or just LEAVE without notice when we're in the middle of a working session. Like, what the fuck? How unprofessional is that?
The shitty part about this is, that without those certain jobs being done by him in the project, it is impossible to advance any further.
I simply don't understand, we have both committed to fulfilling our own jobs as well as working together, so why the fuck am I always eager to work and he couldn't give two shits about it? Funny part is, if I ever bring up something like this, it's always him CLAIMING that he cares, when he sure doesn't fucking show it. Seems to me he may have committed to something he wasn't ready for, but that's not my fucking fault. It's too late to just quit it now.
What's more is that we sort of "need" each other to work so there's no picking up the files and taking it over, because he does have skills I don't.
What am I supposed to do?
