Am i normal?

I'm 16, and i masturbate and enjoy the feeling of it and all, but i don't have any urge to go out and have intercourse with another person.
I'm also pretty antisocial you could say, i don't really feel the need to meet new people or have friends, its just not something i really care for.
I just feel i'm somehow missing out.
It doesn't really bother me that i'm probably never going to lose my virginity, it isn't really one of my goals in life to do so, but i feel like i'm somehow missing out on an aspect of life...
Is it normal just, not to have that much of an urge to be sexually active?
I enjoy it and all, but i just don't feel the need to do it with another person.

I just feel like somehow theres something wrong with me that i don't have any motivation to do this...
I think it might just be tied it with my personality and how i don't have much interest in relationships or friendships.

When i read about all these people talking about their relationships and such, it gets me thinking about what it would be like, and makes me feel like i'm missing out...

Your views?

Re: Am i normal?


At 16 you have your whole life ahead of you. That's a very exciting thing to think about. I am a completely different person from the person I was at age 16; I could not have predicted my present situation and attitudes back then. You will probably have relationships later on -- maybe sooner than you think -- so there is no need to dwell negatively on how you feel at the moment with regard to friendships, relationships and sex. There is no need to worry about losing or not losing your virginity. Masturbation is enjoyable for you, and it's quite ok not to want to take your sex life any further for now.

Right now you feel you don't have the motivation "to be sexually active" and that's fine. There is nothing wrong with you. Your situation and your attitudes will change with changing circumstances. Enjoy what you're doing at the moment. Let it happen.

Re: Am i normal?

Please relax and enjoy your life as things naturally occur. You're at an age where masterbation is very normal and you're in the process on learning your body. Totally normal! Your feelings towards sex with others is also normal and it's your body/mind's way of saying you're not ready for that yet. Just sit back and enjoy the ride. All things in good time, my lad.
