Every now and then, I get this sense of loneliness (Today is one of those days by the way). I was analyzing the reason why for I am always with the bros or with family. If I am with ppl I care about, why am I lonely. Then, I remembered that I noticed attractive women during my day. Also, I had to buy new clothes to replace the old. At first I wondered about what looks good to ppl my age? Then I wondered, who am I actually wearing this for? I’m not trying to impress anyone, and no one is randomly coming up to me. So, I just bought what I thought was comfortable. The point is, I would wear more trending clothes if it’s for someone, but there is no one to do so. Thus, with the two, I have come to the conclusion that I want intimate with a woman. Why else would I be lonely? A girlfriend is exactly the same as a friend or family member except...the physical relationship. Now this intimate desire isn’t totally sexual more so just being close with someone. I feel like I need this and do not having it makes me lonely because I can’t get it. I know that I don’t need this. I know if the moment is right to meet someone, the moment is right. However, this inescapable feeling is chained to my brain and I don’t know how to be free from it. Could anyone help me genuinely understand that it is ok to be single and the physical stuff isn’t necessary. I will give additionally context that I have been dealing with PMO for years now, which I do think is a major contributor. Moreover, the loneliness is turning my eyes to P. That’s why I am here to find answers.
