When I talked about obsessive thinking back in 2009, for me that meant women. I talk a lot about young, attractive women here on this blog. A lot of entries have to do with me talking myself out of approaching or otherwise pursuing this or that much younger woman in my world. Where is this all going? Maybe if I refrain from approaching much younger women for social reasons over a long enough period of time, I will not find myself so preoccupied with them as frequently as I do. I've cut way down on approaching much younger women over the years. Last year I approached two who were in their early twenties, and one a little older. This year I approached one younger woman in a club that I talked about here a couple of months ago.
I don't know if I want to stop approaching younger women altogether, but rather stop approaching waitresses, baristas, and whatnot who inhabit my everyday world. Would that be enough? Perhaps if I stop that particular practice altogether, and I have really dialed that back these last six years or so, I won't become so preoccupied with these women who inhabit my everyday world. It might take quit some time and a lot of talking myself into letting such women go on a case by case basis before my tendency to become preoccupied with such women abates to a manageable level. Maybe that process has started, I don't know.
