Really? Is it because I depressed the pads so its throwing air back into the line?

But its never a bad idea to bleed anyway.
Hmmm that might be it I'm not sure, I did a full bedding procedure last night and the brakes felt slightly better. Maybe I need to redo it again tonight and hopefully it gets better. But the brakes might've taken time to seat but the pedal isn't sinking as bad as it was before

It really is. You can read up all you want about how to please a woman, you can look at all the diagrams in the world, but just like the clitoris, you won't know what the hell an apex is before you actually find it.
