Hello, I am a 28 years old male, I'm currently 35days into NoFap. Because of staying of porn and abstaining from masturbation, some pretty strong feeling of sadness and loneliness have come over me in the past weeks. I feel lonely because I don't have a girlfriend and don't like to hang out with my current group of friends ( I feel like they are a bad influence on me: negative people, negative & pessimistic outlooks on life, their only hobbies: spending money, drinking, smoking) I am currently living in a small-to mid sized city (~300.000 citizens) My hobbies are cyclign/mountain biking, running, mountain hiking, fitness and socializing (I really like to meet & talk with new people, just have a hard time doing so now). Because of the pandemic situation, I feel that the social aspect is even harder. I am currently going out with 2 cycling/mountain biking clubs about 2 times a week, I met some nice people there, but can't say that I built friendship relationships with. And the girls here are kind of scarce (about 15-20% are girls, and they all have boyfriends). I was also going with a running club around 1-2 times a week (but they postponed meetings until further notice, because of Corona). This was a nice kind of group to meet people and girls. I met my ex-girlfriend here (we were only togheter for 2 months). As for my other hobby, mountain hiking, I used to go on a lot of these when I lived in a bigger city (the capital, with 1-2 million people). The capital had a lot of hiking clubs. I also met a lot of friends and girls there, but since I moved back to my 300k population homecity, there arent many clubs here. So I didn't manage to get involved into these. I talked with a cute girl on facebook, she turned out to have a boyfriend, but she invited my on the facebook page of a local hiking club (might have chances there). I also tried in the past dance classes for 3 months(latino, bachata, salsa). These usually have lots of girls, and although I like dancing, and find it interesting, I don't throughouly enjoy it, and feel that I'm doing it more to meet girls than because I enjoy it. (unlike my other hobbies, which I would do also for the pure fun of it). I tried Tinder, but didn't get much luck on it (kind of small city). Most girls on it are 18-25 year old. I sometimes feel that most hot girls are taken, or moved to the capital or other cities, while I am stuck here. I am considering moving back to the capital or other city, but I'm thinking that maybe there are some other ways to meet people and girls here as well. Wouldn't want to move just for this sole reason alone, because I kind of enjoy it in my hometown, it's a little calmer and not so polluted. My city has a pretty vibrant night life, but I kind of dislike hanging out at night, drinking and going to clubs to meet girls there. I tried this in the past, and it worked in the sense that there are girls there, but it's not something I enjoy. So I am stuck between the plethora of advices I read and here online. 1. Do things that you enjoy and that involve other people, and eventually you will meet someone (that would be cycling, hiking, running, etc) 2. Do things out of your comfort zone: go to clubs 3. Do random cold approaches on the street ( I used to do a bunch of those in the past, but they often resulted in awkward conversations, I think that girls can open up much easier if they are approached by men in common social contexts, meaning that they are doing something in a same group, not just random approaches on the street) What things do you guys think I should do? Am I missing some opportunities of social gatherings, clubs, groups that I haven't explored? Should I just stick with what I do and hope that a girl will show up? Should I do random street approaches? Any advices is welcomed. Thank you!
