How long was there between your first and second relationship? Watch


    (Original post by skd1996)
    I was with my first boyfriend for just over a year- things turned nasty and he cheated on me, and following this I guess I rushed into another 'rebound' relationship only a month later in a way to just to avoid the horrible, upset feelings that I didn't want to face.

    This rebound relationship lasted 11 months (doomed from the start really!) and then once again I rushed into a rebound relationship after another 3 months. That relationship lasted a while, around 2 years but again- it turned nasty and even manipulative and abusive.

    I met my current partner when I was crying over how abusive and horrible by boyfriend was being to me. We became friends and he gave me advice and we became closer and closer slowly!

    So basically: moral of the story is make sure you don't rush into things just because you don't want to face the upsetting emotions that go along with a break up!
    Or keep going out with people until you find the right one

    idk about that man..im sure a lot of gals would be doing well too

    so what yeh gonna do to tackle that or are you happy as it is:?
    For any girl to put up with me I'd have to change how I act but I'm cool like I am. Got a bit lonely the other week and was overthinking everything but I've been ok for years so I don't see why it would change. I had something happen a few years ago which meant it's probably not a good idea at all haha

    6 years. Didn't really want one until the year before the second, then it just happened.
