I just entered the flatline stage today (I think) and I just feel all sorts of depression, loneliness, and anxiety. I was thinking of masturbating to restart back into the surging stage, but I came here first and I do feel a little better now. There is a plus side to this though. Whereas before, I only really wanted sex, I find myself fantasizing about being in love. Waking up to someone that I can spend the rest of my life with and not to have meaningless sex, but to have it out of love for each other. I find myself getting aroused by women who are, not only physically attractive, but ones who are really caring and optimistic. This just screams "wife material" to me. This morning, I was really fantasizing about having a gf waking up next to me and us just holding each other and talking about spending the day together. Once reality set in though, I realized how depressing this situation is, to be "pretending" that I have a girlfriend. The old me would've saw this and been like, "GAY," but now I really do want someone to love and to love me back. Porn and masturbation addiction really does turn alot of guys into woman-haters. Incels need to really quit touching themselves... Any words of wisdom from anyone who's been to the other side of the flatline or overcame this lonliness would be really appreciated. Thanks.
