True confessions of an internet dating addict
It is a drug that creates a very core selfishness in people.
We understand addicts need to have their fix, right?
The popularity of online dating is being driven by several things, but a major factor is time.
Online dating presents an effective solution to a serious problem.
The great thing about the world is that we all have choices, and you are in control of every one of those choices.
I only provide the necessary information to help you in the ever quest for knowledge through my own experience.
— The first thing I’ll say and it will probably shock you as much as it did me, but women can be porn addicts too. The number of women that have come forward to me and talked about their problems has been staggering, and yet I suspect it’s only because I’m open, honest and genuine about these things.
If you’re reading this and questioning yourself over a partner or a loved one that struggles with this, then I will say don’t take it too personally (although reading that can be hard at times).
Finally, I’m not saying you should stop watching porn, and I’m also not saying that you should stay with a significant other that is addicted to porn.
Take complaining and being negative for instance; if you’ve worked in Mental Health as I have for over ten years then you’ll understand that people can get addicted to complaining and being negative.
I mean I don’t think anyone actively seeks out to exist like this, but those behaviours release certain hormones into the body, that the feeling of them can become addictive.
Also, if you’re watching a partner or loved one go through this then don’t attack or shame, because we go through enough of doing that to ourselves.
I’m not saying you shouldn’t be angry about it, just telling us how bad we are isn’t doing anyone any good.
