    i am slightly misogynistic.

    I came to that realization recently and it scares me.

    I have a bad relationship with my mother. I hate my last ex GF. But cant seem to get her out of my head, even though i know i dont love her.

    I get along with girls at school just fine, and at work. In fact i probably hang out with them more than the guys. They seem to like me, but i'm totally friendzoned.

    The problem is that i'm in Nursing at school and will be surrounded with women all the time. I just dont want my addiction to become worse and fester in my head.


    I know i watch porn because well, it's convenient. I dont have to buy gifts, or put up with any fights. Just build up and release.

    And i also watch porn while im in a relationship. Just not as much as now.

    I get flashbacks of American Psycho with Patrick Bateman returning his porn videos and abusing women. Im afraid it will happen to me. Minus the rock hard abs.

    I've been lurking here the last few days (this is my first post as well), so I'm certainly not an expert on anything. But, I wouldn't call it unhealthy or an addiction unless it interferes with your normal day to day functions. For example, if you lose concentration at work, and are making mistakes constantly because you're thinking about porn (or watching porn on your lunch/breaks), or if it consumes all your free time (ie you spend every waking hour watching it, even forgetting to eat or something) or spending large amounts of money on it, or into something illegal.

    Watching porn is pretty normal, especially given how easy it is to access nowdays with the internet. If Nursing school is anything like medical school (a friend is in medical school), it's pretty demanding, and given that you've got a lot to juggle with school/work/homework/spending time with friends, etc. It's probably not the best time to be looking for a girlfriend anyway. Like you said, there's a lot less involved with jerking it to some porn. Even in a relationship, I would say it's normal, unless you're choosing it over your SO.

    Most guys are going to distrust women after a bad relationship, (you've got your thing with your mom too, whatever that is, one top of that) After being on OT for a while, I've seen countless threads about women cheating on guys and they almost never turn out well. It seems pretty natural to me. :dunno:

    Just give it some time, and you'll eventually find a girl that will make you think differently, trust me, they're out there. But I guess you have to be ready at some point, be willing to throw yourself out there and risk getting hurt again. I suppose that's the hard part of it all.

    Hope some of this was useful. :hs:
