So today is day 12 of my current reboot, and it always seems to start getting tough and lonely at this point. I had a dream about an amazingly attractive and sweet girl who had a crush on me in college and I woke up feeling pretty melancholy because she lives so far away from me which is the case for most of the people I would like to re-connect with.
I have started to go to the gym, which seems to be helping me through this, but after the gym, I come back to my dads and am left feeling lonely and alone again. I live kind of far away from everything in a small town, so I would have to drive out to find social situations. I really liked the convenience of dating sites because I could connect with girls and fulfill that loneliness through e mail or Skyping, and eventually meeting in person. Although, I have recognized myself as not ready to have a relationship until I am a little further into my reboot, so I have since taken a break from dating sites because I could see myself using them as a comfort from the ache of no PMO, which maybe isn't a bad thing as long as the dating site is replacing looking at hardcore internet porn?
I would really like to make new friendships, but I have no idea how to start making friendships in my area in real life social situations. That is something that I could really use advice with from people who have been in this situation...Any advice?
