If someone jumps from one relationship to another, does that make them desperate?

  • It looks desperate yes, and probably is. I'd question what is really going on and the driver for it... like can they not stand being alone. It could be they are a fast processor of emotions, relationship wasn't that deep, their clock is ticking and they have a goal, etc..

    What it feels like for the other person is they are unstable, not committed, and I didn't mean that much.

  • Depends on the circumstances and how often this occurs. Sometimes you meet someone really special, but if it happens to often it's symptomatic of underlying emotional problems and a lack of stability.

  • It would depend if that jump is the same day, a week, a month, a year... everyone has their own reasons for a relationship ending and the idea of how long between each relationship is purely down to the individuals. For example, my last relationship ended after 2 years in June; he threatened to kill me after trashing the house we bought together three months prior and I never went back. I reconnected with an old friend (who used to have a thing for me) and we met up maybe 4 times over the space of the last 6 months but I had plenty time to think and focus on myself because of how absent he was. I always fancied him but to him, I was just company as and when he felt like it and that's still the same now. I've walked away. In the last 3 months though, I've realised that right now, I'm actually really happy with my life; a stable job, amazing friends, close to my mum and everything is settled into exactly where I want it to be. Any man that would come along now, would only complete it but it doesn't make me desperate.

  • Desperate, needy, unavailable to be alone... pick a reason, lol.

    I'd assume they're insecure with his or herself if they're jumping from person to person, and they need to figure out why they feel they need another person to be happy

  • Both yes and no.
    More likely emotional unavailable.
    More in the area, afraid of being alone, just like some have problems with silence when they talk with someone and tries to fill it by talking a lot to avoid silence. (a lot of those that have this problem comes with excuses justifications to avoid their issues to work on it)

  • Rebound relationships are never good or long lasting. Such things are a mistake.
    I have remained alone since my last relationship ended because I'm too old to be making stupid life mistakes. I'll wait until I've processed through everything and emerge out the other side. There's no need to burden the next woman with shit from my past. That just wouldn't be right.

  • My girlfriend broke up with her boyfriend, and the same day got together with me. I didn't know that, and a week later she broke up with me. And the same day got together with someone else. She said "things happened too quickly," but she contradicted herself by doing the same thing. I don't know if that is desperate or what?

  • Perhaps. Perhaps not. What exactly does 'desperation' look like to you?

    I moved out of the mansion I built with my ex, into an apartment with the last affair. That was thirty years ago. Does that make me desperate? LOL

  • No just means you dont want to settle down which isn't a bad thing because most guys dont either just tell them you just wanna be friends with benefits or something ahead of time so you dont get their hopes up guys love friends with benefits

  • Only the most desperate people actively hop from one relationship to another, hoping to fill the gaping hole in their lives.

  • In my experience those people are co dependent and controlling people who need to be able to have someone to blame and make decisions for them.

    • This answer is spot on I think ! So true.

    • @Boy_Bye It;s so generalized but It's my experience. This girl this year tried to rope me into a relationship and her new boyfriend is always by her side. They are never anywhere apart. When they are out on town she gets annoyed with him talking with the guys and pretends to be sick so he has to nurse her and his whole evening becomes about her.

  • no it doesn't
    its just looking for a compatibile person
    and taking action and do not waiting for fkn mirracle

  • Not desperate, but some people need someone to validate their life. I feel you have to be able to be alone and love yourself befor being in a serious relationship.

  • Some people do that because they simply can't function right being alone. They could also be really bad at keep relationships going.

  • I don't think it's desperate but it shows their lack of commitment, I remember a few girls in the past who were like this because they had guy issues which were rooted from their relationship with their fathers. I read somewhere that psychologically if a girl or a woman was in a non-caring, non-loving environment and her father was either absent or even abusive it will affect a girl or a woman in the long run of not trusting men.

    But everyone is different, I do think when guys or men do it its based on the physical perspective and when women do it its based on the emotional perspective.

  • Yeah. Personally, I get really freaked by 'relationship types', it may be irrational but when someone goes from relationship to relationship you have to wonder if they really like you or if they just want somebody.

  • Yes. Shows that they are afraid of being alone and can´t do something for themself and are not able to spend time alone. It´s kinda sad. My sister won´t leave her aggressive boyfriend because she is afraid of never finding love again.
