Dating too fast after divorce
Since you've probably been out of circulation for a while, here are some of the rules of the new Dating Game – from Rebound Relationships to the Ten Commandments of Dating.Upon breaking up, many a couple fantasizes about getting back together.
But if you're beginning to get serious about someone new too soon after the separation, you may be getting in over your head.Understand that you are, in fact, on the rebound and keep a casual and light-hearted attitude about all of your dates.If, perchance, you should find yourself falling deeply in love with someone you've just met, understand that it may just be the rebound talking.Coming out of a relationship can be a miserable time.And since misery loves nothing so much as company it is difficult to withstand the temptation to forget about what ails you by jumping into another relationship.Yes, go ahead and write it down in permanent marker.
This will allow you to rest easy for the time being.
The problem with using other people as heartbreak menders is that it can turn into a pattern.
Next thing you know you've got a list of busted relationships a mile long and no idea as to why your love life seems destined for failure.
And don't worry if all your dates fail to measure up to the one that got away. After all, how can mere strangers ever compare to someone you once called "cookie toes." Eventually as you put more and more experiences between the time of your breakup and the present day you'll be ready for a new, and hopefully improved, relationship which may just force you to retire the phrase "on the rebound" from your vocabulary altogether.
You've made the plans, confirmed the plans, and now it's time to get down to business.
If, in spite of all our warnings, your belief in the theory that the best way to forget a spoiled romance is to start a fresh one remains unshaken, go ahead and do what comes naturally.
