    Hey guys, I really need some help and support with an on going issue i have. I am recently in a relationship with a girl who is amazing but due to her long hours at work it means I only get to see her during the weekend. This has lead me to message other girls and sext them basically. I am doing Nofap and am currently about 20 days in and I just cant control the urge to do it. I have no intention of meeting these girls but the thrill of matching on a dating site and sexting them is becoming an issue. I have deleted and re-downloaded the app so many times. I feel so stupid because she is amazing and I dont know why I am seemingly addicted to messaging other girls.

    I am also suffering from delayed ejaculation (hence the NoFap). Has anyone else had any issues like this?

    You should spend more time with your girlfriend. Sit down for an hour, look over your schedules together and find the time when you can spend an hour or two together. This can be every day, three times per week, even once per week. You'll have to strengthen your bond, and you'll see how naturally the thoughts about other girls drift away.

    You should also start acquiring female friends. Go out there and talk to them. Be genuine and really out there. First, you will be more popular and you'll be more happy. And the most important thing, you'll learn to value women for who they are and not for their bodies, like you do when sexting them. Try it.

    Wish you luck bro!

    Thank you mate. I have now just gone on all of my messaging apps and deleted all the girls I had been talking to over the last few years and had sexted / had pictures from.
     
  4. Hey man :)

    Ive been in the same situation, it wasnt pure sexting but yea.
    I also used to delete my accounts but ended up making new ones, like you it was never about meeting someone or getting to know someone, it was just a way to get ”porn” sent to me.
    Hell i would never ever touch another woman.


    I couldnt stop, so I decided to tell her about it and some other things, she is so understanding and it helped me, i have never done it since :)
    I would support her just as much if she had done something similar.

    I would think seeing your girlfriend for only a limited time would keep the encounters special. Try doing something you both enjoy every weekend so you look forward to it instead of sexting.

    This is actually a piece of great advice, the best way to motivate yourself to stop is to constantly and genuinely connect with the person you love. Other than that, if you can do it just take a normal phone with limited features that restrain the usage of apps. It might be irritating at the beginning but if the trade-off will be worth it for not having to wallow in the shame again.

    Sexting is just another way of watching porn. From brain's point of view. You can work on your dopamine levels. The source of pleasure should come from natural things like doing your hobbies, going out with friends and so on.

    Just fyi, this is cheating.
     
  9. To you it is, to some its not.
    Dont try to tell people what cheating is.

    I have done similar things, and in MY relationship its just a form of porn.
    I never really "sexted" though, i was anonymous asking for pics more or less on a fetish site.
    It was part of my PA so I managed to let go after telling my girlfriend.





    Stop judging other relationships

    Who are you to tell me what i can do and can't do?

    Sexting is cheating, so is watching porn.

  11. Im asking you not to tell others whats considered cheating because it can unnecessarily make people who fight their addiction feel so much worse than they have to do, as EVERY relationship has its own boundaries.


    So you even consider porn to be cheating? I suppose 90% of men being in relationships are cheating then?


    Please, people try so hard to move on and be a better version of themselves, a comment like "Oh btw youre a cheater" etc doesnt help AT ALL, even if they dont consider it to be, your comment could still make them feel even more worthless. Its like pouring gas on a fire.

    Sorry if you think im an asshole but I thought we were here to help eachother out

    Lying to them and calling it not_cheating is not helping either. It's the truth and that's what they're doing. If anybody had told me that i was cheating, i would've taken nofap much more seriously in the past.

    You can disagree with me and that's fine.

    Hell yeah man! Though, I don't think you're addicted to these apps, rather to sexting itself. You have your phone and you can use it for great things (i.e staying connected with your family, watching educational and helpful videos, and more) so you might want to consider not just throwing it away. Your choice.

    Good luck on your journey!
     

  14. I understand you, its just that I disagree that its not neccessarily a fact that its cheating, not to all of us, even if its not a good thing to do.

    As i mentioned i did similar things and my fiancee doesnt consider it cheating and neither would i do if she did the same thing.

    But i do get your point

    Ask yourself would your girlfriend be happy with you sexting?

    I have been doing exactly that for a while now and I feel it is getting way out of hand. I spend most of my evenings matching and talking to women I have no intention of meeting, just for the chance to sext or get a few pictures. I want to use the app just to meet someone I can date and get into a relationship with, but it's hard not to digress into other stuff like that.

    Is there anything in particular that you did to stop this behaviour? I feel it's taking control of me and it scares me..at the same time I want to keep searching for someone I like dating..
     
  17. Exactly! There are many substitutes of porn, working very similarly - chats, erotic stories, social media photos (especially Instagram "models"), photos of celebrities, imagination and fantasies, escorts, pole dance, meeting women in clubbing parties.

    You are not on NoFap if you are sexting and you can't expect effects by simply replacing one kind of porn by other. I would consider such chat visit as a relapse.

    Thanks a lot mate! I really appreciate the tips and it's comforting to see I'm not the only one who has/had problems with this. Being single, it has not affected my life too much yet.. but I will cut the chord before it becomes a real problem.

    Some solid advice here, one requires a routine, mental calm, and a support system. I think it is the case with most of us that something deeply hurtful and problematic happened during the time we got pushed into our habits and to get out of it, we need to love ourself and also acknowledge we can be loved no matter our flaws.

    Time out. It is not only looking at porn but 100% cheating. Apologies if you’re to weak to handle that fact. But this shit is about accountability. Maybe your girl should sext some dudes and then you’ll say it’s just porn? I’m sure you’ll have no problem getting off with her when that thought runs through your mind.
