Well.... I think PMO and my fetishes have caused me to lose the closest I've ever got to a true gf. We dated for a few years. I've been in love with her since we first met. Apparently I never made any moves which gave her the idea I wasn't interested sexually and only just friends. I've told her I didn't make a move out of fear of losing her. I thought if making a move if things didn't go well I would lose her forever. so I did nothing and played it safe and nice. And now it seems I've lost her anyway. I think this is true. But I also think that PMO didn't help. It takes away your need for physical engagement and satisfied me with only the fantasy online world. I'm sure it played a part. Sad times.
