    I'm a 22 year old man.

    I've had psychiatric difficulties for the last 10 years. Started a degree at 18. Still enrolled, but it's not going well. I'm waiting to try new medications which might change things.

    I spend most of my week volunteering. I have no friends or anything like that. I go to volunteering then come home and do my hobbies at home.

    I want to have sex. I don't really feel insecure about not having had sex before. I just want to try it.

    Thing is, I don't think I'm that attractive for a long-term thing and I don't want that: my mental health would make it a strained relationship.

    How would I go about having sex? I've considered adult dating websites as my best option. All I'd have to do is shed a few pounds then I could have a one-off thing with some girls. Right now, my mental health has turned me into a fairly unattractive prospective partner, so although I might like something more, I don't think I can get that.

    You wouldn't necessarily need to shed a few pounds - not everyone wants the stereotyped looks - but you do need something to offer a potential partner.

    What are the hobbies? Are they things you could do with someone? Do you not get to meet people while volunteering? Are there any support groups for people with mental health issues you could go to?
