Am I Depressed Or Just Sad?

OK, I'm not a psychiatrist or psychologist or any other kind of expert, so you don't have to take me or my quiz seriously. But if you're not sure whether you're depressed or not, then I think this is the quiz you should take. I am sorry you're looking for this type of quiz in the first place, and I hope it helps somehow.

My turn to vent I guess
I’m at a state of depression, my family however doesn’t know what I am going through right now. I feel like the don’t love me, today my dad said to me “your life is good your not sad” and at that moment how much I wanted to scream at him. He knows nothing about this, yet he assumed I was fine
Thanks for reading

I'm either depressed or mildly to really sad. The one thing i know is that the thing that is making me sad is not having a girlfriend and being slightly lonely. I only have 1 close friend and 1 semi close friend (and a bunch of aquantinces) but i don't value them that much tbh. I feel like they are my friends but not my best friends because while its fun spending time with them, i don't enjoy it completely. I believe there are friends out there that i'm better suited for in all honesty.

But back to my main point of sadness, not having a girlfriend and this feeling of wanting to be in a relationship but cant be in one has gotten to me big time recently. I'd say its a 90-10 split of contribution to my unhappiness right now. Tik Tok and instragram don;t help as well because you always see people in these wonderful relationships and are constantly reminded of the whole that within your life.

Honestly right now i'm struggling to believe if its even possible to be fully happy when all you truly want is to be in a relationship but are never in one. I also feel like if i were to get a gf it would solve a lot of my problems in my life because she would be my gf and my best friend and solve my friend situation almost perfectly i think.

Not being in a relationship has contributed to my sadness so much so that i can honestly tell you i would still not be happy if you gave me a perfect professional career, or 50 Million Dollars because i know the whole that is within me and while those things would plaster up the whole for a good 2 mins in life time I would certainly still be as sad, lonely, and craving a relationship as i do now.

Everytime i think about this and whats causing my unhappiness i always go back to the thought of is it possible to be truly happy when all you want is to be in a relationship with someone but are never in one. You always hear the saying that you should never need something or someone in your life to be the reason for your happiness or that you should never say "ill be happy when..." but i truly believe that a relationship would make me more happy than i've even been.

I think I might be depressed, but I am not suicidal. Is that possible? The quiz says I want to end it all but I don’t., I’m just really sad. Can somebody please respond to this?
