It has been almost 7 months since I have been in a romantic relationship. I started my NoFap journey on November and have had many fuck ups and triumphs. Last month, I thought I was finally getting the hang of my journey and decided to re-open up my dating apps. POF was the first app that had to go just because there are too many bots and prostitutes that tempt me, so it had to go. My favorite app had to be Okcupid just because people there seemed to put a good amount of information on who they are, so it made it more interesting for me when I messaged them. Eventually, I did meet a women there and wound up going on 3 dates. I tried my best to keep sex jokes to a low and to take things real slow. Last week, she texted me that she was drunk and "wished" I could be there. The hoe in me wanted to sext her and get her in the mood before I made my move. I knew that if I played my cards right I could have scored. I didn't do though, it didn't felt right and part of me knew if I did would up scoring with her it could have turned into a classic "smash and dash" situation. We still text here and there but because I value my recovery process more. I think I am just gonna ask her to be my friend. I feel like dating at the moment is slowing my recovery process because I have been getting an abnormal amount of cravings to PMO. I guess I just need more time to recovery and I could use an actual female friend.
