Why can’t I be happy alone?

I recently just got out of a 1 year 9 month relationship, and I now find myself constantly looking for a male companion or friend, to sort of fill the gap. But whenever I try to focus on myself, I can never stay away from trying to talk to guys again for long. It’s like i need it. And for a while when I’m talking to them, i feel good and happy, but when we stop, I’m sad and hurt again and the cycle repeats. So can someone help me with some respectful advice to help me or maybe even tell me why i may need this male attention?
