Re: "Feelin' Good, Livin' Betta" - 22y/o - 140+ days no PMO! Questions are welcomed! Really good question. I fell in love with the girl before I was having the serious effects of PIED and brain numbness/emotional numbness. I met the girl a little before my 17th birthday, but about 4 months later I got my fist laptop from college and started watching porn every night and even some mornings on it. I noticed I was having trouble getting hard by the summer time, but I didn't think much of it except for nerves and the fact I was scared to leave her and go to college. My libido started to nose dive even more in subsequent years - I'd have weeks where everything would go fine, and then weeks where I couldn't get it hard enough for sex....although almost always it would be 40% erections when I failed. I think she at first thought this was because of stress (I'm very dedicated to school), but by the end of our relationship she had to be suspicious of it....no man can have that much trouble getting up sometimes unless there is something wrong. After we broke up is when it ALL went to hell - since I didn't have the "real deal" with me anymore, it was just me and porn for about 6 months and by the time I was ready to get with another girl...it didn't even flinch (which was the worse it ever gotten). So I guess I would say that I got into my longterm relationship with a libido, but I stayed in it because I cared about her.
