Hey Jeff!
I'm from NYC too. Just moved to Dallas 2 weeks ago for a job. Getting hard to live there, but I miss it.

Later,

M

DE,
You have brought out the MOST defining characteristic of my personality. The ability to hide fear thru comedy. When I walked out on stage.....nothing scared me. After the show, many younger woman thought it fashionable to be my friend, and getting them into bed was easy. I was the STAR......some of those relationships last for weeks, but I broke them all off because of this fear of intimacy. I became terrified of just being in their company. So....I left them, and went on to find another/more. This behavior is what I do not understand, and want to change. I will do almost anything to achieve this.
I stay silent because of emarrassment and shame. Easier NOT to talk about it. I DONT KNOW HOW NOT TO DO THIS.

Jeff - vulnerability is the key I think - the problem is, once you're vulnerable with women you're likely to get laid again.

Joking.

Being vulnerable means you might get abandoned and you have to take a leap of faith.

It's worth it.

I have to thank Larry, for what he said here... I will have to think about it for myself. Ask yourself why you are afraid...
