amar_m saidOk so Ive been celibate for extended periods of time and I feel like Im about to explode.... Like theres all this pressure and I just feel like a steaming kettle whistling and about to blow on a hot stove....... Jerking off doesnt help at all, nor does porn, because it doesnt release any of the tension... Im pretty sure whoever is the next guy I date is going to get attacked by me, Im so fired up
Has anyone here ever tried extended periods of celibacy? What do you do with all this pent-up pressure for goodness sakes
Yea like I've mentioned on here before I went three years celibate, from mid 2007 until april 2010 after a relationship ended with a younger guy. I had no desire to meet anyone new, no desire for sex, no desire for anything except him. I still feel a sense of loss over it. But in April I jumped back into the pool and started meeting people.
I found that during that time of celibacy I was way more focused, I felt less lonely, and I was able to accomplish great things, build a business, make a lot of money, and channel the energy into the gym and working out. I never went online, never even to look.
Now that I'm back on the market, life is less productive and I am more lonely. I developed feelings for a couple of guys who can never return them. Life is definitely more peaceful without the distraction of sex or men in it.
