I was never in a real relationship before, so I've never known what it was like to go through a breakup. I'd imagined it would be bad, and I thought I had a pretty good idea about what it would be like. I never understood why people got into rebound relationships though. I thought it was just immature and desperate to need to immediately get in another relationship as soon as one ends.
Then I met someone who I thought was perfect for me. Everything about him was what I was looking for. We never got into an official relationship, but it's the closest I've ever been. It turns out, he played me. He was leading me on while pursuing another girl behind my back. Needless to say, I was crushed when I found out. Now, even though I KNOW it's immature and desperate, I can't help but want to rebound. I don't WANT a "rebound" relationship, it's a real one I want, and I know I won't find my "soulmate" in a rebound. The problem is, even if I don't act on this desire (I'm not LOOKING for anyone. I'm not even pursuing the people I already know!) I find myself crushing on everyone.
I am severely attracted to nearly all the guys I know, and have had strange, romantic dreams about some of them. It's like my subconscious is rebounding without my permission!
Why do you suppose this happens? And does anyone else have any stories about it?

MY ex left me for another guy. I felt empty inside, but I knew I would never rebound because I would not use another girl to fulfill my wants and I was not ready for another girl. It has been about 7 months and I am over the void part, but I would be lying if I did not think about being in another relationship. However it is just my sports and I =)1
