Hi, despite being a fit and active 39-year-old, I've had a few issues that have plagued much of my adult life, namely:

-erectile dysfunction (I've tested my NO levels, using strips and they are constantly low, despite taking L-arginine/Citrulline, which I've come to realise is unlikely to help, anyway etc.)
-lack of deep connections with people (possibly through lack of enthusiasm and being too laid back and coming across as unbothered, I also tend to go inside my head and struggle with what to say, particularly in relationships)
-self-esteem/confidence
-Optimism and enthusiasm
-focus and motivation
-cognition and emotional ability
-Not being able to chat about a variety of things

and after trying so many things and searching high and low, a number of arrows are pointing to potential genetic deficiencies, possibly to do with a fast ComT gene (apparently common with those of Asian descent, my mother is Japanese) MTHFR and NOS3 for starters. Does this all seem feasible?

Have you fixed your diet? What is your temperature, have you practiced hypoventilation, how is your thyroid, what is your pulse? Do you have blood tests?
I've tried a fairly Peaty diet (organ meats, eggs, ditched PUFAs etc.), but that made no difference. I've got some blood tests here: 2020-02-29 Testosterone Tests (blurred). I've had a few people look over them, but no one has said that there's anything of huge significance.

are you completely free from porn and fantasy? That is almost always the problem.
I have used porn a fair bit in the past, but not really much for the past couple of years, as I did come across something that suggested that it could be the root of various issues.

porn messes us up. And fantasy does too. I know that this is not a message that many men here want repeated but I think it is completely true. Its effects can last awhile too, even after stopping. Fantasy is difficult to get rid of but essential I think to regain really good erections.

I haven't seen your friend's mom so I can't comment.
I use vacuum erection device every day to pump my penis and make it thicker. While I pump my penis, I think about my friend's mom and how I'm taking her without condom in multiple positions. Is this ok?
