I am 24 and the only way I can get an erection is when I am by myself? If I have sex with a partner I have to take viagra...

I thought that it was because i was nervous. We just recently tried again and i wasnt able to get an erection at all. I wanted to and my girlfriend is incredibly beautiful. Whats wrong with me?
Just as matt and jeff I have had problems getting it hard too. I have seen my doctor about it because it is a very big concern for me. I am 17 and he diagnosed my current medicine and said it causes ED. I stopped taking it but i have still had problems. Taking ED meds work, and they work great. My doc actually gave me a sample pack of levitra and two prescriptions... long story.
