Soon death.

If you have lust for these ugly things then the perception of unattractiveness has not been established and a perversion of view has taken hold.

It would be good if dwelling quite secluded you would establish the perception of unattractiveness.

My co-worker does not want to go out with me, although she still wants to talk to me. i said no thanks.

We have cravings, this is the norm. And the normal solution to that is to have a partner and help each other satisfy them.

In addition to this, if you practice the Dhamma and grow in wholesome qualities, mindfulness, self-control and insight, cravings will decrease until one is ready to abandon them altogether.

Here it seems people sometimes going about this backwards. They are full of cravings and low on wholesome qualities, mindfulness and insight. Instead of taking the sensible path, they choose the ego-driven pursuit of trying to squash their cravings and run around in circles.

Maybe she was creeped out by you and left to get away from you. I'm creeped out by this thread, and I'm a dude just reading your comments on an internet forum.

Perhaps. I will take her absence as a blessing.
