I went on my first date in over a year, and it I had a pleasant surprise or two.
Some background: I did a major reboot last fall, about 100 days up until January of this year. I got very sick earlier in the winter and fell prey to "self medicating" by PMO'ing. I probably PMO'd about a dozen times, each time separated by 2-3 weeks of abstinence. I've been PMO free for about 3-4 weeks up until this point.
I had been flirting playfully touching some girls on my sports team, and despite them being rather attractive, I did not get any erections. I've also tried "checking out" some attractive girls on the streets/malls etc. and despite it all, nothing below the belt.
I met a girl online and despite her not being my type visually, I did find her attractive enough to ask out on a coffee. Well something clicked and merely standing close to her, or smelling her neck/hair did the trick. It felt fantastic. After finding some common interests and having a great time, we went out on a real date.
She dressed in a sexy summer dress and we went out for dinner and a stroll. We spent a lot of time, holding hands, caressing, kissing and a bit of heavy petting. It felt like I had an erection the whole night. My guess was it was around 75% of full strength compared to erections I would get from P. The simple bonding behaviours of touching each other's bodies and holding hands definitely helped.
I ended the night without going for sex, as I wanted to monitor my progress some more; but things were definitely getting heated.
I had been concerned up until this point because I had not had any erections that were of the spontaneous nature (morning wood doesn't count) and no erections from interaction with women. I guess I had to get 'intimate' to really see the progress.
I justwanted to share this, I really enjoyed my evening and I felt this energy and magnetism the next day that I havent felt in a long time.
