I have an interesting question to ask you guys. I'd like to qualify the question here because I have more space. How would you feel if someone in your community, school, yeshiva, workplace, etc. who you have a good (NOT negative) relationship with identified you based on your posts on this forum? I'm assuming two important things here: 1) you are comfortable and on good terms with this person in real life and 2) this person is a FELLOW STURRGLER [sic] who actively makes use of the forum and was not just a straggler reading the forum for some kind of sick thrill.
Would you:
1) Be mortified, and possibly deny that you were the person posting under said username,
2) Be happy to have someone similar to talk to about your issues in real life, and use this as an opportunity to get some real life support (partner up or something)
3) Be indifferent to the whole situation, and just acknowledge it and move on without any real reaction.

Please VOTE and POST an explanation for your choice. If you have any OTHER option that you feel should be included in the vote, please post it here and I will add it to the poll options. Thanks guys!! :D

I vote for option 2 although I'm good without live support. It would be nice to share...

But right now I'm doing my best to make sure I remain undiscovered, especially with some of my recent shares, and also I like to stay within my 4square

No big deal.

What's the big surprise. I smell porn problems on people all the time. ... faulty humans that's all. Just like me
Though I would still have healthy shame ....... like a blushing luster

i hate to nitpick here but shame is never healthy. embarrassment can be healthy however
What works for me: 1) Honesty 2) Meetings 3) 12-step 4) Listening to my Sponsor 5) Not doing what I want to do 6) Inviting the God of my understanding into my life

It really depends who that guy is. But generally I'd say #1 embarrassed.

My friend could you revisit this thread after 90 days. I was full of guilt when I began. Something changed after the wall of honor.
Your honor - whenever you're ready...

I would cautiously ask the other person how they want the relation continue
But if it was up to me I would be very happy to have someone to open up to
Hashem these lustful thoughts are not mine I don't need them or want them please take them from me so I can live a happy and healthy life

Gotta roll with the punches or the punches will roll all over you

yesterday was
tomorrow will be
the only thing you can change is the moment you see

keep smiling and keep busy

"lust is fire to dynamite don't get close" from someone don't remember who

The worst thing i did to myself was lie to myself for 2 whole years

I try not to hate it takes way to much energy
