How do you think your story/symptoms differs from younger PMO'ers? Everyone's problems is equally important, but I can't compare myself (34 y) to people in their early 20's or younger. Technology-wise the world has changed a lot and we're also in different stages of life and physiology and hormonal responses. For me it's been more about the subtle changes through the years, where I never knew what caused it, but I felt increasingly worse year for year. I was once a romantic, but have slowly turned in to a creep who objectifies every women I see. It's about years of resenting girls for not wanting me, which led to social withdrawal and a life in front of the computer. The feeling of inferiority, constant exhaustion and brain fog, anxiousness, low self-esteem, self-hate and shame. Emotional numbness, fluctuating libido and interest in/attraction to girls. It's about dreaming of having a girl as my girlfriend, but once she likes me I lose completely interest in her. Being addicted to novelty and notice a big decrease in libido once I've slept with someone for some time. Eventually preferring PMO over actual sex. Always wanting what I can't have (in women) and failing to appreciate what I already have.
