They saw the way I loved her, and they wanted that love for themselves, but I don’t just offer that kind of love to anyone, especially not when I’m heartbroken.Sometimes a man will pursue a rebounding woman in the hopes that it will grow into a relationship, and other times, he will pursue her only for casual sex, knowing she is unable to commit.◊♦◊ It’s easy to look back at a relationship that just ended and only see the negatives.It’s even easier to do so once you’ve found a new relationship that those negatives.Friends aren’t always as reliable as romantic partners, dating prospects can dry up, and the depression of heartbreak often impedes personal growth.People told me not to get a new girlfriend until that growth was complete, but it’s never complete, is it?When things didn’t work out, I was sad, but I was relieved to know that the “rebounding” part of my post-divorce dating life was over and that now I could go find my next true love.
