Most Helpful Girl
Absolutely. I was distraught after my first break-up, because back then I was young and naiive. My solution? Talk and flirt with as many guys as possible online until I found someone to convert my love for my ex boyfriend onto. I found this one sweet guy and did this, and we got into a relationship very quickly. I didn't know him very well and couldn't see his flaws, but I was so happy to have another man in my life and the pain taken away from my break-up. However, after a few months I found out he was a completely different person from me. I am the adventurous, going out and travelling optimistic type, whilst he is the stay indoors gaming, lazy and depressive/negative type. On top of that he was extremely clingy and possessive. Eventually I broke up with him, but he was so hurt and I am still trying to get over the guilt. My situation is the perfect example of forcing yourself into the illusion of liking someone. If I had gotten to know him properly before I had rushed into a relationship, I wouldn't have dated him and no pain would have had to be caused. So, the short answer, yes.
