      probably

      not necessarily; most people are addicted to something. you're addicted to posting bad takes, for example.

        They are judgmental because you are a coomer. The human population is in the billions because other men are not scared of women.

    Yes in the same way exposing yourself to snapshots of comparatively lavish lifestyles will make you awkward around people wealthier than you. In the end it is a form of worship and what you worship is what destroys you

    I think you misunderstand the issue. If you have no other female contact but porn then you’re awkward because the only concept of women you have is some poor soul with fake breasts checking on wiener. That transfers to real life. A man with a large social group made of men and women won’t have the issue you describe because he’s used to seeing women as people. If you’re a neet or you aren’t used to being around women then porn is detrimental.

      My contact with women is very limited and I don't talk to them, so that is correct. I don't talk to them because I'm not chad

        So you're not allowing yourself to talk with women. And the reason is because you don't look a certain way? That's your own standard blocking yourself.

      A lot of people are slightly socially awkward. I don't think porn has made me anymore awkward, but it has definitely skewed my perception. Women I talk to I'm not really interested in. Seems like a lot of them are also 5-10 years older than me. I haven't been on a date in over 10 years even though I have had opportunities. I'm not really interested and I think this anon has a point. Normal women don't look like pornstars or instagram thots.

      For me porn has been detrimental so I am trying to quit.

    No. Its not true.
    I (36m) just today even was thinking about all the ridiculous single variable bullshit I believed back in my awkward and girl deprived teenage days.

    And pro tip: orher way around. The porn doesnt make you awkward. Youre awkward leading to less shit to do leading to porn use and whatever other copey shit you do. Probably too much vidya or anime.

          Adding to this, literally any experience with other people counts. Women are just people the same as you are. They’re as awkward and as weird as you think you are. If you’re into collecting obscure Russian nesting dolls, there are a large amount of women out there into the same thing. Stop focusing on what you want and simply exist in the social situations you like and feel comfortable in

          OP here, I had this interaction recently on the train where I saw a very small asian girl (which are very rare where I live). I was postponing talking to her for like 20 minutes, but eventually the frustration caused by me being a coward pushed me hard enough to walk up to her and have a chat. I asked what race she is because I was curious, but that was awkward I imagine. Then I asked simple questions like "how do you like it here and such." Eventually she left and I don't know if it's because it was awkward for her or because she genuinely had to leave. At least she said bye leaving, although maybe that was her being polite. I felt awkward afterwards. I hate being like this.

            Charisma is being adept at language and hoe you deliver it. No question is wrong but it will be percieved as such if you don't understand the subtle flavour profiles between words.
            Saying I apologise for your loss at a funeral is a fauxpas.
            I would have asked (if I felt the timing was right)

            So youre also gonna have to seperate out what awkward is *supposed* to be.
            Youre not supposed to bother people randomly in public. Thats an inherently awkward situation. Its aj awkward thing to do. She felt as awkward as you. Dont enter inherently awkward situations that make anyone feel awkward. In tnis specific situation, you were not your poor cursed awkward self. You were awkward like everyone else. Because you entered a social sitation with zero common ground, reason, or signal. You just bothered someone. Everyone would feel awkward doing that. Thats what rhe "awkward" feeling biologically is for. To tell you dont do that. You need to figure out when your instincts are correct and when its just excessibe because youre inexperienced
            That experience was the right thing to feel awkward doing because youre not supposed to do that.

            >what race are you

            How did you meet all your friends and acquaintances in life?
            You meet women the same way.
            Ill bet the answer was always "a highly circumstantial situation where there was catalyst for social interaction and mutual bonding over common experience, and social chemistry that allowed for future interactions".

            After the age of about 8, I guarantee tou never made a friend again by seeing a guy doing something entirely unrelated to you, walking over and saying "hey what race are you?"

            Thats your other mistake. You think theres always a way to win. Some right things you can say or magic words to win anyone.
            There isnt. The vast majority of people arent gonna like you no matter what you say, fewer will think youre ok, fewer will wanna be friends, fewer will frick you.
            . Especially if you bother someone who doesnt want to talk. Thats why its an odds game.

            I forgot to mention something that might change your perception on the matter. Prior to me walking up to her and starting a chat, she was having small talk with anyone she came in contact with, random people. So seeing how sociable she was, I thought I should take my chance. It made sense, I don't know why I forgot to mention that crucial fact.

            I'm not autistic, not to the degree where it impedes with my decision making or motor skills.

    Nobody is going to discuss porn in an unbiased way so you are barking up the wrong tree. Look inside yourself, get to know your own feelings, observe your reactions, connect the dots yourself. Even if you don't solve your intended problem you'll learn something useful.

    Always relate everything back to God to make sense of it. It's the whole of the Truth.
    Porn does this to you because it is dehumanizing. Pornography makes you look at others like they are sexual beasts, animals. And objects. And this alters your view not only of them, but of yourself. You start to feel like maybe you aren't human too. Maybe you are just a sexual beast, a fleshly thing. It alienates you from your own self. Now when you're in public you no longer see people. You see something you fear and no longer understand. But it's all in your head.
    People are NOT animals, no matter how they act or what they do wrong. They are people. It's your perception. And your perception when you watch porn, lacks God. Porn separates you from God because it separates you from the proper orientation toward others: love.
    The way you view others is the way you view yourself, and both of these together, is how you see God. I hope this makes sense. Put the pornography away and reconnect with love.

    Watching porn is only possible when you're alone inside your own room unless you're insane or moronic.
    Being akward around other people makes you stay in your house/room more instead of going outside.
    Because you're alone in your room more often, you watch porn more often. Case closed.

      Nobody is putting women on pedestal, it's more like you are uncomfortable around people that don't want you in the first place. That's not gonna make anyone feel good. Women only care about a very tiny percentage of men, everyone else might as well not exist to them, that's a fact.
