I am feeling lost.

Hello, I am kinda new at this. I am feeling...I guess the best word would be "lost." I am a single 20something male. I work full time with a great job, which I love. I also go to school nights. I am feeling kinda lost, meaning, I feel stuck. I work to fill my time, so I don't have to deal with "life." I am terrified of meeting the one, which I believe has to do with rejection. I have never had a real relationship, real date, or anything that goes along with having a girlfriend. I want someone to love me, and offer me the bounty I have to offer, yet do not know what I am doing. I am content at my workplace, yet I will work extra hours, and drown myself in my work as a filler, something to take up all my time, as if to make it look as though I do not have time for a social life, relationship. I find that my friends do not call me, as they are conditioned to think that I am working, from finding that I was working every time they wanted to do something. It also relates to alcohol, as I had a close family member abuse alcohol, therefore I never wanted to go out and drink etc. I have overcome that to a point. I also find that I drown myself so much in my work to ease this "missing part" of my life that even when in class, all I can think of is what I need to do tomorrow, or something work related. I am good at my job, and am told so often. Its my comfortzone, which is why I feel I stay there. I want to be happy. I want to have a relationship, not with just anyone, but with someone who cares about me, as I care about them. I want to continue working, as I love my career, yet I KNOW that if I have a reason to fill my "down time" with time spent with someone who I love, worth loving, I will not work like I do now. I do not feel I am a work-a-holic, as I do enjoy down time, yet I feel as though I am alone, and will be for the rest of my life, if I do not get out there and take a risk. But the thought of it is where the subject ends. Pleas help.
