Now I've never been in a serious relationship, just casually dated and had hookups here and there but I finally met a girl on a dating site this past summer who I actually had feelings for and saw a future with. I'm not putting her on a pedestal, but we did have tons in common and she was very attractive compared to others id casually dated.
She said that she wanted to take it slow, but the more we talked it seemed like she was more into me than I was into her. We started talking on the phone and then the 2nd time she asked if I wanted to talk because she loved hearing my voice. Thought it was a bit much, but I kinda overlooked it because I was really attracted to her.
Anyways, long story short. It seems like she was playing games with me. She'd show me tons of interest and then after our first date, when I started texting her back it seemed like she wanted nothing to do with me. I just saw it as give and take but we had our dates and they went perfectly. Then we were supposed to have our 3rd and she ended up flaking. Didn't contact me again and went back to the ex she complained to me about.I felt like complete shit. It made me feel like I'm not relationship material and that there's something very wrong with my personality and the only thing I have going for me is my appearance and even then when a girl does like me, it won't last.
This took me awhile to get over it, about 4-5 months. I thought I was getting my first serious relationship but it seemed to end easy at it came. It almost made hesitant to get involved emotionally with a girl. Like I started seeing another one a few months after, but when she said she really likes me, etc I kinda took it with a grain of salt.
Anyways, do you think people with relationship experience get more affected by being rebounded or people without relationship experience? I'm not saying one is better than the other but is there a correlation and do both kinds of people handle it differently?
