Maybe the support that i give is shallow and meaningless, however i will give nonetheless.
I have no idea of the pain you are going through, so it seems trivial to say "keep going", yet that is all i can say. Keep going for when you find that someone, the wait would've made it even sweeter.
As for your friends, if you are honestly in love with someone: try telling them. I understand that this is not something commonly admitted in your society, yet it seems the best way out of the situation you are in.
Stay strong.
Keep Living.
