Is it bad that I am craving intimacy and Affection after the loss of my Mom?

I been grieving over the loss of my mom and trying to move forward but my emotions have been all over the place , like waves of it to the point that the only thing that I feel would make me happy is Sex , I am craving it to full extreme , yes I still have my limits and preferences on what Will turn me on , but I just want to feel wanted and want amazing sex , I almost went back to my ex out of desperation but I stopped myself , I know I am sounding like a pervert but is this normal anyone feel this way after grieving? Why do I feel like sex will fix me?

  • no, it's normal
    I lost my grandpa last year and even tho I didn't feel bad as much as my parents I did change a little
    I played a lot of games, chatted a lot, even tried weed for the first time even tho I'm really not into smoking
    but as time went by it got a lot easier to deal with
    the number one thing that helped me was talking to my friends and family members not about him but about other things, it's good to distract yourself

  • It's pretty normal actually, trying to compensate for the pain of loss many people seek pleasure.

  • I know someone who dealt with something similiar but it was because he had a relationship with his mom that he should not have had in the first place. So he was looking for both a replacement and a distraction. I don't know what your reasoning is. What kind of relationship did you have with your mom?

    • A normal mom and son relationship, My mom was always there for. me and would turn anything negative in my life to positive , and helped me see things in a positive way , So i think he craving of sex is just for my own comfort

  • Sorry to hear about your mom. How long has she been gone?

    And it is understandable that you would be craving comfort during this time.

    • She passed 2 weeks ago so it is still hitting me like a ton of bricks in waves , I am trying to stay strong and move forward but yes comfort would be nice

    • Wow, very VERY recently! No wonder you’re still having trouble adjusting to it.

    • Yea my work was even like are you sure you want to come back to work and I was like yea it’s helping me keep my mind off of things , which that was stupid of me to do as well considering when I did go back to work it was hard for me to really focus and I was all over the place , I know everyone grieves in their own ways and their is no time limit on grieving but I know all I can do is move forward , which I am pushing myself to do , I know I can’t depend on someone else to take care of me but part of me wishes I had that special someone right now , so I think that’s why sex is heavy on my mind , just that release of feeling good and feeling wanted and desired , but then I worry about the girl thinking oh he is just fucking me to get off , so that’s where I stop myself , cuz I am not that way what so ever , Ito be honest I would need a girl to come use me just so I didn’t have to really think about how she is feeling, so for that to happen is a long shot lol

  • Ab-so-lute-ly NOT & NORMAL!

  • My guess is it's been easy for you to get laid most of your life

    • I wish especially during this time lol

    • Well I assume that's how it's been for you since your teens

    • You are correct I did get more lucky with girls in my younger years cuz my confidence level was higher and I really didn’t have a care in the world back then , I was all about mingling and partying , I guess the bad boy that girl’s were drawn to before I really learned what it meant to be in a relationship , but my question to you is how did you assume that lol
