    Recently found myself single after attempting a relationship with someone for two months. I was pretty upset that things between he and I didn't progress, but came to the conclusion there's no changing the outcome.

    That being said; we all have our rebounds. How long do you keep them around before moving on? Personally if the sex is good and the lines drawn (difficult to do sometimes) the time frame only matters up until one finds a new interest.

    If you treat him as a trick, then a trick is like any other - a passing sexual release, with no lasting consequences.

    He only has the value to you that you give him. I used to trick all over the place. Had fun, met a few keepers in the process. Sounds like you haven't found a keeper yet. You'll know it when he arrives.

    Time isn't the issue. You may realize it the first time you meet. Or maybe not for a while. Your heart doesn't operate on a schedule. Mr. Right will walk into your life when he does, and how quickly you recognize him really isn't important. icon_biggrin.gif

    I dunno... I blame the Gemini in me... I fall pretty hard, pretty quickly and was/ am pretty upset the 'relationship' fell apart.

    Two months is not a relationship. It's barely even dating.


    Semantics or opinion...

    Sorry, but we don't "all have our rebounds". Some of us find it morally compromising and unfair to the other party involved.

    I disagree...we're all adults here. If you're upfront and honest with the person that you're hooking up with then it's up to them to make the decision if they want to pursue it or not. I do have to ask though why you would need to hook up with someone so quickly after ending a "relationship".

    HOW true! By our third date I had decided that my long term guy (5 years this month!) was a "keeper".

    Sometimes it has been a struggle (for both of us)...but a rewarding struggle.
