    I think a lot of us here and myself included yearn for companionship and we seek a romantic one because it could help quell the loneliness most affectively.

    But I’ve found that a lot of us on here don’t even have any friends. How’re you going to jump from no friends to straight into a relationship ? I think deep down we just want to feel connected that’s why.

    How about having a group of guys you can call your brothers to hang with regularly sound ? Me and a friend of mine (both years free of Porn addiction) are working to gather a small group of guys to game with maybe once a week. This isn’t just about gaming for fun it’s about having a group of guys you can call your friends and connect with. To help you stay accountable, to talk about real shit with while enjoying something like a fun game together.

    We’re all about growth and connection here and so we’re hoping to find a day of the week where a group of around 5 of us (for now) on here can play some games. Maybe it could be a building or competitive game. Who knows maybe we could grow enough to have a youtube channel or stream on twitch. I would be down.

    To wrap it up because I think I’m rambling if you’d like to have a group of friends to do something fun with regularly to help combat your addiction as well as your loneliness comment or message me. Me and my friend are looking to connect us guys together and make the world a little less lonely :).

    - Be willing to hang in discord at least 1x a week and not just texting but actually voice chatting

    - Be on US or European times or be willing to meet at these times if you aren’t

    Cheers I hope to make some genuine friends here.

    Maybe specify no triggering characters. Some guys will play female characters, and even when a woman plays a female character they are not that character. I bought some used computer stuff from a grandma on oxygen once and she was a gamer, all these people were always stalking her in the game but she didn't look anything like her character which was of course sexually suggestive in the way it was dressed etc.

    We’ll be starting off playing 7 Days to Die, but we’ll be moving to a bunch of other building/competitive games

  7. LOL. At least she was actually a woman. I see an attractive female character and just assume it's some basement dweller with a neckbeard.

    Awesome man !
     
  10. I think this is a great idea. I don't really have any friends that enjoy gaming as much as i do and i've never played co-operatively with other players unless they are just a bunch of randoms lol.

    I struggle making new meaningful connections with people, partly due to my own anxiety but also due to my chequered past regarding my porn use. I worry about being judged.

    I'm based in the UK. I've never played 7 days to die so i'll check it out

    In the past when i was struggling and discovering how to recove from my pmo addiction, I was a hardcode gamer at the time, played constantly with my online friends day and night, mostly two nights straight (no sleep) all i did pretty much was pmo and game which was sad, but that was really ONE of the main causes from my loneliness. What im saying is balance is key. Gaming and going out more often to socialize and connect is something everyone should be doing not just gaming in my opinion. Which is why i cut that out along ago with my pmo habit two years ago. glad you guys are making a group to connect :)

    I'm one week into NoFap. I stopped gaming too. Makes it too easy for me to veg out in front of my PC. I'll come back later, but I want to play with WAY more moderation.
     
  17. This is a fabulous idea, what I've always dreamed of. Don't exactly play 7d27 and would rather play with irl friends, but this is great. We should start groups like this all across the world, it'd really catch on.

    Bumping this up so more guys can see it. Still think it’s beneficial to a lot of guys experiencing loneliness and a lack of purpose. We’re only growing and the members who have joined so far are very optimistic individual nofappers. Message me if you want people to game with and meet life goals with. This is all to battle loneliness friends.

    Hey,
    I'm on Xbox so not sure how I could fit in (cross platform games?) but I have been looking for something like what your post described and really identified with your sentiments. Is your group still active?

    @tiredofbeingtired Hey man, yeah it's still active. There have been a bunch of people coming from xbox and ps4 and the like so we will most likely do a group for that too. Write me a pm and I'll see what I can do for you
