Thanks for the reminder, @Pete McVries. There's several reasons I shouldn't look at pretty girls on the internet, or revealing music videos. The pretty girls thing always tempts me to start looking up porn, so that habit has to go. I like artsy fartsy music videos, but I guess I should switch to the "audio only" or "lyric videos" for these videos, or just listen to the radio. Getting sexually aroused is just setting me back and it's against what I believe in for both practical and religious reasons. I've been good lately and there was this movie I didn't watch because it said it had nudity. I'm going to have to not watch a lot of entertainment if I can't see anything sexy by women. Maybe I should get that second streaming service to make up for it. Yeah, I agree with you and there's a lot of stuff that is risky that I have to leave alone, and I plan to. Getting cocky because I have a long streak will be my undoing, which would totally be a drag. I would like that, but I'd also like to cuddle really bad at this point. Don't worry, I don't plan on telling her that on the first date. I don't know when I will have the nerve to ask her out, maybe next week. @Doper, thanks for the full quote and for reading and for your support. Edit: I didn't think through this post before making it. I want to add in a status update. Status I cut off looking at or watching sexy/sexual stuff over the past 1-2 days. My urge to M has gone up a lot, and I'm not sure if the two are related or not. This hasn't happened to me for a while. Mostly, I think I need to get out of the house more. (I got out last Tuesday or so.) I don't know what I should do about this urge to jerk off. I need to do something to get my mind off it, hopefully by doing something constructive. I'll think about this for a while.
