Single with a burning desire for intimacy
Hi Dr, I am unmarried single. I feel hungry for sex and I am constantly burning with passion. Deep down my belly I can feel that burning desire for sex. I feel helpless and dejected as I am unable to find a girl who would love me. Masturbation gives me only a temporary relief but after a while I still keep getting this urge for sex. I feel lonely and something missing.

You are a single, lonely young man that yearns to be loved in an intimate relationship. There is nothing wrong with that and I guess the question that I have for you is "What are you going to do about that?" Some people use social media to find partners (e.g. internet dating, Tinder, chat rooms); other people join activities where they can meet potential partners (hiking groups, cooking classes, dance classes, church groups, etc.) You need to be proactive otherwise you will just become more depressed and sexually frustrated.
