Please forgive me, I was not trying to be a smarta** in my previous post...not at all! Only you can say whether or not you are addicted to sex...and it does indeed sound like you have a problem with it. However, in reading your post it also struck me that you are engaging in casual sexual contacts with women that will not lead to any meaningful relationship...while avoiding intimacy with women with which you could establish something more lasting. Having gone through a divorce myself, I know how powerful 'I will never go through that again!' can be. One way to ensure that you never experience that pain again is by not allowing yourself to get close enough to another woman and establish an intimate partnership. There was no judgement intended in my response to you...only suggesting one possible explaination for what might lie behind your behavior...there could be others. Perhaps if you figure out the root of the problem it will better enable you to change it.
