I'm 29 and have never been in a relationship. Please tell me what is wrong with me. And maybe how to fix it.

I suppose there are some basic facts you're wondering.
Looks: mileage may vary, but generally I get pretty to hot.
Smarts/lifestyle: graduate degree with professional job.
Dating: dated a guy once for 3 weeks, hated it, dumped him. Lots of online "dating" with lots of first dates and no sparks.
Childhood: only child, domestic violence and lots of fighting but otherwise content and good student. No sex abuse so far as I can recall.
Sex: not a virgin, handful of partners, some one night stands. All so-so.
Do you know anyone else around my age or older who's never been in a serious relationship? Is it completely obvious why they've never coupled? People are usually shocked when/if I tell them. I don't know how to explain it anymore. Is this something that I need therapy to cure?
