Re: 18-Year-Old with 2 Year Dry Spell
I can tell you right now that sex is NOT the norm. In fact, physical relationships usually end up failing in the end. You should set your sights on a girl that you really sync with. Then again, it all comes down to you on how you end up using pickup. For me, it's all about having a better social life and maybe even finding a girl that I really click with.
By the sounds of it, you already know what your problems are and you're taking action. You don't have confidence, and you are unfamiliar with the social norms due to just coming out of an LTR. Just continue to read and practice, take those first footsteps towards being better, and you will do just fine.
