You're right though, therapy probably isn't going to work for you.

So it seems you're ugly and you can't get a girlfriend
I have a 38 year old son who has only had one relationship of a few weeks and that was more than ten year's ago. He did online dating but a few years ago decided the effort was too much. He would love to be in a relationship.
Given your lack of success I would suggest you do as he has. He goes out with his friends a lot, sees his family regularly. For holidays he either goes with family or on his own. He has a very pragmatic approach and gets as much from life as he can. I would suggest you give up on relationships for now at least. Try to make the best of what you have. I am having to try to make the best of my situation; living with chronic mental health problems that are at times excruciating. It takes many years to learn to make the best of a crap life but it beats suicide. This i can say from experience.
Wishing you well
