The word is

'CRUSH'


It's romantic to have a #####.

Crush - as in someone you like

It's depressing to be #####ed.

To be crushed - to be let down

A nutcracker's job's to #####.

To crush - as in crack

The answer by Beastly Gerbil is almost certainly the intended one, but...

The word could equivalently be:

'CRACK'


It's romantic to have a #####.

Crack - many people find enter image description here to be quite attractive!

It's depressing to be #####ed.

Cracks in pavement, among other things, become depressed (depressions): enter image description here

A nutcracker's job's to #####.

To crack nuts, quite literally!
