Dear Dr. Romance: Can I have a life partner?
Dr. Romance answers a reader's question about his search for a life partner.

Dear Dr. Romance:

I am living alone. I've been told I am sexually week. Can I have a  life partner?   How long will it take?  I need care and protection, and to know what my choices are. How can I be fruitful to   society and mankind?  Is my life worth anything? Tell me the truth.  Believe me I can keep my cool. I am mentally stable and happy.

Dear Reader:

Stop focusing on being 'sexually weak" whatever that means, and start making friends. You're keeping yourself lonely by obsessing on a relationship, when what you really need to to is learn to relate to people and make friends. Once you have a circle of friends, and you're not so desperate, you'll find that finding a relationship is much easier.  "Make New Friends, Keep Good Friends " and "Where is Love?" will help you develop relationships to resolve your loneliness.  The Unofficial Guide to Dating Again will help you find companionship.
