    Hi guys, let's chat on this topic, for those undergoing a flatline and are experiencing no libido, how do you cope with that, how do you "feel" about this situation, what it's like to have no urge, to see a woman and not want to have sex with her, what are you learning from this experience, let's share our thoughts

    No libido is seldom an independent state found in humans, be it through any cause except highly localised brain lesions.

    As such, I'd like to tell you that the responses you're about to get here will involve heavy influences from other effects of a flatline, including, but not limited to- depression, demotivation, anxiety, etc.

    You can read research articles with test monkeys to see how mammals function in the absence of libido, if you really want a specific answer. You can also read up on Kallman Syndrome. It's quite interesting.

    I’m flatlining for more than 2 weeks now. I like the fact of not having urges but I’m also seriously depressed and it sometime can feel like joy will never come back.
    for the nofap side of thing, it feel like I’m in the easy mode. But even with no urges I know I can go back to P if I’m bored or want to get out of that state.

    I will add that I’m not just depressed due to nofap, I also have some health issue/medication.

  6. Do you mean any woman you see or a particular woman. ?

  7. I guess he's talking about a particular woman.

    I'm in the same situation.

    I don't even know what it means to have libido.
    Whenever I do nofap it's a permanent flatline intermitted by P cravings. I have no idea what people are talking about when they say "libido".

    Just go with a flow man. Being in a flatline is kind of a blessing. I noticed that for some unknown reason women like you more when you don't give a f... about them. I got invited to lunch by a coworker most of the male colleagues hit on. I accepted invitation but didn't think much about it and behaved like I was having lunch with my fat ugly boss instead of a hot babe. I showed no interest in her and yet I got invited to go on a skiing trip with her. She even offered me free skipass tickets when I said, I can't afford it right now. Go figure.

    I don't even have porn cravings (which is a good thing), no urges, no cravings, nothing, absent sex drive

    What I've learned from all of this? The main takeaway?
    to not take my libido for granted

    I don't know, we'll see. I decided 2019 to be a year of monk mode for me. I'm reentering dating scene in 2020. I'll see if everything is in order down there. I entered my current streak with total PIED so I'll be happy seeing any progress on this front. Morning woods look promising but I'll see how it behaves in real life situation.

    now I have found myself reading the comments as I am in flatline.
    I am very worried about the absence of my libido and I would like to know if he will ever come back, when and how? I'm afraid. why did you get here?

  17. Maybe there is no libido. Maybe it's always been a myth. :eek:

    Hey guys. Just starting out. I read a lot of nice success stories, but then some horror stories about flatlining for like months or some rare cases - even years? That sounds horrifying.
    Don't you think that if a flatline goes for a veryyyy long time, there may be an additional reason for low libido?

    I just need some motivation that these bad times wont turn into a permanent situation :(

    (been an addict for 12 years prob, 30 yo now)
