As Sam Smith put it in his song Dancing with a Stranger:

“I need somebody who can take control
I know exactly what I need to do
‘Cause I don’t wanna be alone tonight, alone tonight, alone tonight

Look what you made me do, I’m with somebody new
Ooh, baby, baby, I’m dancing with a stranger”That’s what a rebound boils down to. We’ve lost the person we actually cared about and now we just need somebody, anybody, to fill the void for a bit.

But sometimes, a bit turns into a lot longer, as these anonymous people will attest.

To light me up and start me anew.

I guess you just never know what will happen when you go dancing with a stranger.
