Disclaimer: Sometimes I put my own foot in my mouth, but here goes anyway.
Move 3: You played Nc6 in response to f5, I think d6 would have been much better. Being able to recapture with a pawn if he takes gives you much more control of the center. As the game went he was able to gain a lot of tempos by repeatedly attacking your knights.
Move 9: You played d5. This is a clear blunder as it simply loses a pawn.
Move 11: I think White plays a bad move here with Nd2. You do find a good response with Be6.
Move 12: White plays Nxe7. I think the best response here would have been Nexe7, getting your bad knight back into the game. Yes, there is a hanging pawn on d4, but he is doing his best to call your king safety into question. Better would be to deal with his threats until he has no choice but to deal with the issue of his hanging pawn. Take this line into consideration: (12. ...Nexe7 13.Bxe6 fxe6 and now he has no choice but do something about his hanging pawn, so on your next move you can play Qd7, then castle the move after that.)
After this point I don't have much else to say, his e-pawn is just too much of a problem for you in the middle game, and by the time you finally manage to capture it he has isolated all your pawns from each other, making them easy prey. Rather than delivering a knockout blow to you he simply ground you down until you broke.
Hope my analysis (if it can be called that) helps.
