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?

Lady J…the movie companies don’t mind taking people’s money though. So, they will attempt another one.

I finally saw Ironman 2 this weekend. It was ok, but I think that I liked the first one better. I think that I like Terrance Howard in the role of “Rhodey” better than Don Cheadle. I never thought that I would prefer someone over Don Cheadle because he does in great job in everything that he acts.

It happens

With that type of m/o(not taking the flight once you’ve been dropped off) it sounds like a “kick door” or a drive-by or somethin is about to happen.

‘was that the end of the relationship or uall made up??’

melo – eventually I got over it…but it was a rough time. That’s how it is when the trust gets compromised.

Luvbug – I tried not to laugh when I read that about G. Coleman, so I guess I’ll be seeing your friend in hell soon. And as far as guys making up stories, I have no clue. I guess they feel that’s a Need-to-lie-basis…maybe they weigh out the truth vs a made-up story, on a GETDAPUDDY scale. If the truth will cause the percentage of getting da draws to drop below 94.99%, they lie.

@Melo – check my math, do I have that percentage right? :lol:

I actually went to the theater. The Mrs. was busy with some of DST sorors with something or another. So, I had some solo time, and a movie pass. As long as the movie has been out 2 weeks, I can use it.

I then went to the movies later Saturday (2nd time that day) and saw Just Wright, while wife watched Sex And The City 2 with one of her sorors.

that being a 1/2 lesbo is nice??

@Luvbug??

like swiss and Randyt were saying this morning,having lesbo skills and using them on ur man is a real cap in a woman’s feather as long as ur dont make a complete switch. .

I suggest u dabble in that(lesboism) since u havent made a permanent man choice yet. Training is key coz the game is changing. :lol:

@Slimcutty??

melo – eventually I got over it…but it was a rough time.

Thank u for an honest reply.
Thats the nice thing with u ladies,when u relaxed, ur mouths can really talk.

Now lets have this cheating topic intruduced for us to discuss and i bet 100% of u will swear and lie ulneva be with ur man if he cheats.

Just Wright was cute, but I knew that it was going to be black romantic comedy. However, I went anyway….it wasn’t horrible. I am just not a fan of romantic comedies.

I love action films. and Horror flicks.

Speaking of which, they are starting the Scream series again. Jessica Roberts niece, Emma, will be in the lead role. Neve Campbell and Courtney Cox will be in it too.

I did like the first one better though. Don did good, but I just prefer him in a different role.

Czbrat – I loved Wolfman, by the way. Anything Anthony Hopkins is in is good to me. I just knew he was up to something. I felt sorry for Lawrence though.

I didn’t realize werewolves were so savage! That’s the first time I have watched a werewolf movie.

Melo – Nothing wrong with lesbians, but that’s not my thing…never has been. I definitely would not do it to impress a man. I’m fine being manless…and womanless for that matter.

Being single is not the end of the world…although I think it’s funny that you would suggest being a lesbian as alternative…what next bestiality?

You never cease to amaze me sir.

czBrat…you did not miss much. It was a tease to another Marvel Comics movie…..

They talked all about SHIELD and the Avengers in the Ironman 2 movie…Nick Fury (Samuel Jackson), The Black Widow (Scarlett Johanssen), and Tony Starks used Capt. America’s shield to balance his machine, and the end credits show Thor’s hammer

PG & Lady J – Just Wright was a romantic comedy. And like PG said, it was alright but to me, it just wasn’t realistic & a bit over the top. Made me throw up in my mouth just a tad bit…LOL

@melo ‘Thats the nice thing with u ladies,when u relaxed, ur mouths can really talk’

Um, no shame in my game. Yep stayed with him after he cheated…not necessarily from that instance but other things. I put so much time & effort into it that I suppose I just really wanted it to work and crossed my fingers hoping he’d catch a freaking clue. However, as wisdom grows and life experiences teach those hard lessons, I know that unless a person wants to do something different, then it doesn’t matter what I do or say to make it work. They have to WANT to do better. Plus if i had been taking him back after all those little instances, why should he change his m/o if I chose to stay either way. It’s a Hard truth.

czbrat – If you got to an AMC theater before 12, I believe it’s only $5. Bring a big purse with your own snacks and you still get to enjoy the theater experience. ;-)

That isn’t totally true. The story that I’ve heard is that he was the first to sign on to the project and negotiated that he would get paid the most. So, he got paid more than Robert Downey, Jr., Gwynneth Paltrow, etc. He would not renegotiate. So, the Paramount had an ax to grind. So, they went with a cheaper option.

So, him wanting more money isn’t totally untrue. However, they still should have let him know instead of finding out on the internet. That is like using e-mail to break up with someone.

@Luvbug??

my thoghts are inspired by all the chics who try it(lesbo) but go back to hetero later..Anne hersche included. I think women find it easier….but all im saying,its not a bad idea as long as u are rooted in ur hetero beliefs.It enhances ones skills i think,esp if u open to new ideas.

Certainly better than a woman prodding themselves with a joyless,lyfeless cold stick.

(what are the after effects of lead posioning down there anyway??) anyone?? :lol:

better yet, they should have just paid the man like the talented professional that he is; which is what they would have done for any other actor that helped them pull the box office numbers they did on IM.

Okay Melo. If I had to choose between living a foe lesbian lifestyle and being called desperate and pathetic, I’ll take the latter easily. I’m not into women.

I can’t be sold on it…not even a little…0%!!

I’m single. It’s what I am. It’s what I’m gone be until I’m not. LOL

cz..I got paid for the first one. They just decided to go a different direction in the second one.

I do find it odd that Rhodey got paid more than Tony Stark. That role was made for arrogant azz Robert Downey, Jr.

I would have more of a problem if they didn’t pay him for the first one, but they did. They went with a cheaper option in the second one. It may have been smart because cinema numbers are down this year in comparison to the last couple of years. I’m sure that the effects cost quite a bit.

czBrat – EXACTLY! At first I wasn’t too thrilled about being at the movies that early but my cousin turned me on to that. When you go after that time and end up paying almost $10 or more for 3D, then it’s not so bad going a little bit earlier…not to mention if you go with someone else.

Melo – No, I would say the option YOU suggest is all the way pathetic, not just bordering on it! I mean, you wouldn’t get on here suggesting a womanless dude try the alternative. To suggest someone go against their natural tendencies is horrible. That’s unfair to the other person too.

I know you are just being you Melo, but that’s disgusting.

Wolfman was good.

My favorite film of all time is American Werewolf in London. Great effects especially for the early 80s.

Unfortunately, I judge most wolf movies (except Teen Wolf) by that standard.

Hannibal Lector is my hero, though. So Silence is a close second. I bet the obesity rate would go down if we made Cannibalism legal.

Lady J – I have a different outlook on Lisa Raye after watching her show. I’m not exactly sure what I thought of her before but I don’t think it was near how I think of her now. But that show would be called GhettoFabulous in the City…or HotMess in the City. lol
And what really happened with that show Girlfriends on the CW channel??? Maybe they should’ve done a movie. lol

czBrat – a little bit of talking is okay, but to cause BOTH of us to miss out on key parts of a movie is just plain irritating.

‘wonder what the mechanical equivalent is that single dudes resort to when in drought?’
