The inspiration I got from this post: https://www.nofap.com/forum/index.php?threads/10-years-of-not-losing-sexual-energy-during-intercourse-nor-masturbation-using-gnostic-techniques.109927/ So I decided to go for a hike on a weekday. Beautiful day, and there I met a random physique woman in pink sporty clothing. She was taking selfie in nature and we exchanged some eye contact. That was intense and I knew something was happening, but I didn't bother to stop and walked pass her without much thought. Random Yoga Teacher (Yesterday) I stopped by the lakeside. She came by shortly and started doing selfie in yoga poses (magically, or intentionally within my sight). She peeked my way and well aware of my presence. Frankly, I like her, so I gathered my guts to walk over. She gave me that "He is walking over, OMG what to do now" look. Just a few lines, "Oh you do yoga?" "Show me the pics you have got" "What makes you here on a weekday?" then we decided to do more hiking together. There we enjoyed two hours of hiking, chatting, joking, a lot of sweating. Shy at first, she told me herself being an introvert don't really chat with strangers, but I asked her everything about her life, got her contact with enough clues to setup multiple dates. Only thing being she is young (at the same age as me, 30 btw), married with a kid! The connection between us was true though. I have no interest in tearing apart a family, but the ability to chat up some random ladies I have a thing with never happened in my life. Given I never pulled any successful cold approach. And man, that was smooth. Makes me wonder, yeah I can have a lot of female friends too, not just little. Definitely something I enjoyed and would like to do more. My Ex (Today) We never properly broke up, but we didn't contact each other for a very long while. I lost control of the relationship (her) and it ended in complete chaos. We had absolutely no interest in each other anymore. That's why I initiated my no PMO journey at the first place. Fast forward to today, she asked me out to meet and to properly thank me for everything I did in the past. I can't recall any one instance where I enjoyed eating with her, but today we had the deepest conversation we had in the past two years. I tested her a little, in the past she would refuse to do everything I asked her to do, like holding an object for 2 seconds, getting me a cup of water, but today she was cool and very cooperative in making it a great time for us. She became another person, not edgy anymore, said yes to everything I have said, with deep respect towards me. In the past she really hated my facial hair and refused to kiss, today she said they are actually quite good (thanks to no PMO, great change there). And something she never did before, I got a message from her right after she got home, with this "I really miss you.." "When can we meet again..?" How weird it feels, as we aren't really together anymore, but you now flirt with me like never before? My Thoughts Maybe I want to focus on no PMO, maybe I want more female friends than sex, maybe I care about self-improvement more than who flirts with me. Maybe there will be more options pop up before I need to decide anything. Maybe I can hit 180 days before making any decision about my love life. I don't know. Let life decide where it takes me to. Thanks for watching, sorry for my English. .
