Okay, take it easy. You actually prove my point. They’re usually rebounds.
It’s not advisable to get too wordy on a subject, especially with this being a food board. But it’s great when someone questions or disputes your opinion then you can expand.
My point is when you leave a long term relationship which was obviously taxing or you want freedom or whatever - you want to have fun, not get too serious. The obvious choice is someone younger. And yes, sometimes you marry that person. But statistically it rarely works out. Your references are different, you’re in different stages in life, the younger person changes as they grow. Most men I know who did this ended up marrying women closer to their age. I might get killed for this example, but my hubby’s post divorce (pre-me) girlfriend was a fitness trainer in her 20s who barely spoke English. Sounds nice, right? But he wasn’t dumb enough (yes I said dumb enough) to take it serious and neither was she (smart girl). However he blames me for that relationship because I wouldn’t go out with him. Yeah right dude.
