Yeah but that's also something no one can know. And the Church has never said ''if you fornicate for 40 years, when you go to confession you maybe won't be forgiven''. Nowadays, everyone's so quick to justify sinning and to go on and on about repentance. I mean, of course you're gonna repent when you're near death and afraid of going to hell. Or when they've had their fill and got bored of it. But is that sincere enough because I'm not inclined to believe that people regret sleeping with and having fun with other people, ''oh I'm so sorry I slept with 50 beautiful women''. Yeah, no. What irks me the most is how people justify people in perpetual sin while at the same time they'd condemn a fellow Catholic to hell for mastrubating 5 times. Also, how many Catholics use contraception or engage in premarital sex and still receive communion every Sunday?

It's hard to make sense of anything. On the one hand, you have all those quotes form the Bible about saving the sinners, then you have the ones that say they will be destroyed and God is not mocked. What if a man tries his best to find a wife but can't? Is he supposed to live without mastrubation all his life? And let's not even go into contraception, which seems to me quite impossible to do. I mean, if you don't want a baby, does it really matter how you avoid having it? Whether it's a piece of latex or having sex only during 2 weeks a month, the underlying principle is the same.

Or what about confession, like the OP said, people repeat the same stuff every time like a broken record. Does confession even matter in that case? Because if we repeat something so many times, we're obviously not sorry about it. And someone might ask why should we be sorry, we're not hurting anyone anyway.

Someone also said God doesn't ask the impossible. I would say that finding a girl who's willing to not have sex until marriage is as about close to impossible as you can get. Finding a girl who's willing to go to church every Sunday and pray and live according to Christian faith is almost as impossible in the first place.  I can't shake the impression that people are merely repeating certain moral rules but no one actually lives according to them, maybe only a small percentage.

It seems to me it's a lose-lose however you put it:
You either fornicate because you can't find a girl who's willing to forgo it
You marry such girls or girls that are very lukewarm Christians and break the Church commandments on contraception most probably
Or you stay single and mastrubate

In every case, you go to hell.

It can certainly seem that way.

I am of the opinion that there has never been a harder time to be saved then now.  

Finding a real Catholic spouse where there is mutual attraction these days seems nigh near impossible.

Even women who are not all that attractive will eventually be chosen and accepted by someone.

Men, on the other hand are much more likely to be involuntary celibate. And with the way nature has designed the incessant drive to procreate for men, combined with the ubiquity of scantily clad women everywhere who torment guys with their look but don't touch taunting, it's never been more difficult for men to remain pure in mind.  Never more difficult.
