The danger of dating on the rebound

When you are fresh off of a break up, it seems that you suddenly meet a boatload of people that you feel drawn to.  It’s probably the void your ex left that is pushing you to fill it with the first hottie that gets your attention.  It’s hard to see this when you are going through it though.  This is just one of the risks involved in dating on the rebound.

When you meet someone new, we always say not to mention or bring up the ex, especially on a first date.  The problem is that if the ex isn’t completely out of their system…or the picture, you don’t know if they are truly ready to starting something meaningful with you.

If you have just ended a relationship, do you tell the new person in your life how recent the break up was?  Does it matter if the last relationship only ended days or weeks ago?

Have you ever been the rebound guy/girl for someone and it worked out great?

Any tips?

Randyt??

(only women tips privided)

get urself some Azzurri jerseys, and dorn azzurri throughout the weekend….enough beer money and ofcourse lodging money so u have a venue for quick operations.

This is the most fertile time coz they are all World cup football crazy and wearing Azzurri,when u are a foreigner will score u major points with the women,in the sports bars.

The other tip,ofcourse shld be obvious…….avoid the Vatican. :lol:

Luvbug — No stunt doubles allowed, but if it makes you more comfortable, I suppose I could allow a stunt tongue — as long as it’s my own. :lol: It’s all about the art, Luvbug… all about the art… :lol:

Thanks Melo, I brought over three Team USA shirts to tick off the Brits at the pub, but hadn’t thought about wearing Italian when in Rome. Regarding the Vatican, it does seem unlikely that it would be a good “fishing ground”.

Totally off topic:

Subtle racist scene in hospital waiting room:

To of my people, and older lady & what seemed to be her adult son, sitting side-by-side in seats 1 & 2 of a row of 4 chairs (mom in 1, son in 2). Exit son to make a phone call or something. While son is away, enter black chick — cute black chick, mind you — who sits in seat 3 of same row. Son re-enters, sees new seating arrangement, walks back out into hall. A few minutes later, exit cute black chick & voila! Re-enter son. Coincidence? Methinks not….

Hello All!!!!

I admit my first relationship after my divorce was a rebound. I was so hurt and distraught that I just wanted to feel wanted again. Luckily, the guy understood and did not try to take advantage of me. We dated for a few months, 1-2 a week, but eventually, his job and long hours and me moving to Smyrna put too much time and distance between us.

I laugh now cause my whole “dating” adventures lasted for about 6 mths only!!! From my divorce to meeting JT was only 6 mths, but I learned alot in those 6 mths.

The Meet-N-Greet on Friday was great!!!Glad to be able to out a face with a blog name!!! Hope to do it again soon!!

I took it the wrong way because I don’t view being black an accessory or a new fad, or a fashion statement.

I mean there are trials and tribulations that come with being black.
Some folks want to tan but they would flip if they woke up as a black person one day.

swiss – I don’t see that as particularly racist. I’m not fond of sitting right beside a stranger if there is room to have a seat between regardless of their race.

Had chick sat in Seat 4, Leaving Seats 2 and 3 empty, I’m sure dude would have come in and sit down and you wouldn’t have noticed it at all.

Greed is something fierce in the NFL. You got owners, players, and the league as a whole all trying to get paid.

College football suffers from greed, too. As this ultimatum to the University of Nebraska to make a decison whether join the Big 10 or stay with the Big 12. The Big 12 will probably disappear fairly soon, anyway. The Big 12 North never really competes well. Reports are that the Texas schools will become part of the PAC-10 which would probably become the PAC-16. Its about money.

However, the players get nothing compared to everyone else in college football. However, most college players play their hearts out for the pursuit of a dream. I really loved that myself, and love seeing the heart in the kids that put it all on the line every Saturday really in the name of pride more than money.

When I was a kid, Atlanta was the last stop of the Winston Cup Race Series (before it was Nextel/Sprint) . So it was a big deal to see who won the cup. It was always at the end of October. So, it was a regular weekend, not a 3 day holiday weekend.

I cleaned that track after those nasty #$%# *&((* *((*())&^$ people! I still don’t eat KFC after all the stuff that I found in those buckets!

Good luck in dealing with that track, though. Usually ace is the worst, but occasionally a Kicks 101 (country station) would hold their version of the flashback festival at the Atlanta Motor Speedway. That would be crazy. So would be the NOPI exhibition (usually little tricked out Honda Civics with loud azz mufflers). Many folks attended that thing too.
