    Not directly.

    But it will help you address other issues in your life that WILL help increase your ability to attract a gf, yes.

    it did for me. But i think it's more because i'm basically a good looking, good smelling and nice guy.

    I think it does because of the increased confidence and motivation to get out of the comfort zone. Of course, this varies from person to person

    It's helped me step out of my comfort zone, so yes. I do say it helps when dealing with women and going somewhere with women in the case of something more than a friendship.

    If you keep yourself from pmo, after a while you are more willing to go out there and find a women. Because all this time you didn't need to really because you had all those women on your screen. So Yes i think it will increase the chances of you getting a girlfriend.

    I wouldn't say directly, but you'd have more willpower to go out and find real women.

    Let's put it this way. Don't expect girls lining up to be with you. You're not part of the Beatles so don't expect girls to throw themselves at you.

    However, by quitting all of this garbage your mind will revert to the way it should be. (can't think of a way to say this with out sounding like an ass) meaning you'll act more like a man should. Like some of the others have said. You'll start feeling more confident and taking more risks etc.

    The only caveat to this is do not expect that to happen over night because it won't happen it just doesn't work that way. But rest assured of your honest with yourself and go through this you'll experience some change.

    I think it does. When I've been on good streaks not pmo'ing I tend to focus on healthier thoughts and actions and women seem to pick up that vibe. I used to think it was a way far out idea but it's like somehow the world starts to become interested in what you're doing. It's happened to me enough that it's one of my motivations to give up pmo

    Glued to a screen with your hand in your pants will keep you from any possibility of finding a girlfriend. Remove PMO and you increase your possibilities as well as your motivation. You will be off the bench and back back in the game, but it will take some work to win.

    It's more of a foundation but I believe it can provided you do the work, such as knowing yourself better, finding out what you want in life, taking care of your body, etc.

    Godamn it! Please remove this mentality that nofap will give you a girl friend like yeah "you did 90 days PMO free,here is a girl friend from nofap" FUCK NO! You can't just expect that no i have not fapped in 90 days or whatever so i will get a girlfriend easily whenever i go out and approach a girl.I had the love of my life by my side for 3 good years and surprisingly i was fighting this addiction at that time too.Will not go into details being too emotional why she left me whatever but no you will have to work on your social skills,you will have be ready to accept that yeah a woman rejected me it is not the end of the world.Keep trying,accept failures,treat women with respect,make them laugh,show them a good time and they sure are to come back to you.

    Well YOU are the only one that can get YOU a girlfriend.
    But still i think it could help and here ist a reason why and im mostly speeking out of experience: I know for a fact that you actually become kinda constantly demotivated when fapping. U mostly tired and out of energy. Why? Cause everytime you feel like jerking off u just do it right? its not hard to open ur laptop and search for porn to masturbate to. Now imagine not having that option but still feeling like jerking off or u know having sex. Now u would only have one option: That of meeting new people, getting rejections, getting even more rejections and finnally finding someone that likes u back. Since thats the only way to satisfy ur sexual urges I believe in some way, yea it might help u can a girlfriend. There you have it ;)
