I am currently 20 years old living in the USA. I moved to a new state one year ago with my parents, and I still don't have any friends. Yet since around February/March of this year, I have decided to take on NoFap, which of course means no PMO* (the "O" part is what I'm concerned about). I have gotten quite serious about NoFap lately, as I have now found a reason to quit the PMO addiction forever. Yet since I've been on NoFap, I have been contemplating what reasons there are to being in a boyfriend + girlfriend type of relationship with a woman (in the future, I mean). Many people close to me tell me that I am attractive, so I have confidence in my appearance and am not very worried about my looks (I have also been working out for about five years). However, I simply don't have the desire to make friends or get into a relationship. My parents are concerned about me, my mother especially is telling me that "it's time" for me to go out and find a young woman to be my "girlfriend". My parents tell me I can get "any girl I want" and I mostly believe that, yet I still don't want a girlfriend. In the past, I have had only a few friends, most of them very good males around my age (from school). Currently I have two friends, both of them live out-of-state. I've never been in a relationship with a girl in the past, the most I have ever gotten was a few hugs from one girl who fancied me back in high school. What is the point of having a girlfriend when I am on NoFap? I don't intend to release my vital energy ever again (not kidding about), I even get very upset at myself when I wake up to find that I had a wet dream. I also don't intend to get married or reproduce anymore, for similar reasons. To me, though, having a girlfriend means finding a potential wife. There are many other reasons based on things that have happened to me in the past regarding why I don't want a girlfriend, yet here is my question: What is the point of having a girlfriend? Am I missing out on something? Is there anything to be gained? I am a bit worried that there is something that I am missing out on by not having a girlfriend, yet I don't feel like i want to be in a boyfriend + girlfriend relationship. From how I see it, it seems like boyfriend + girlfriend relationships are time-consuming, problematic and the only reason most people seem to do it is for an easy go-to for sex (I've listened to Tom Leykis' "Leykis 101" once or twice). Apologies if I wrote too much. Thanks, - D.C.
