Personally I've stayed away from dating sites as well, for now. Too much trigger for me. As my clean streak has stretched out I have realised that Porn partially filled my need for connection and even for romance and for sex (it was a lie, but my brain chemistry didn't know the difference). I have some heavy baggage around romance and relationships and now that is coming up daily I feel like I need to keep working on loving myself and deepening my appreciation for platonic connection. There is a natural human need for sex and romantic-connection and the tricky part for me is working out where that ends and my pathological need for validation (via sexual/romantic desirability) ends. No wonder I'm depressed. All I can do for now is keep on, and hope that when the worst side-effects of reboot are out of the way that things will become clearer. I haven't been laid for 18 months so I'm desperately hoping that I can find some peace around it and feel safer to step-out, soon. It is what it is, though, and the sooner can I accept that, the better. Good to see you goin' strong, Brother. Givin' yr heart and lungs a go. One thing that has helped me recently is to make arrangements to spend time with friends doing positive things (if someone else is expecting me I'm much more likely to drag myself up and out than I would if it was simply solo activity). Peace to ya. - Billy.
